Default Caster Racing

After searching google and these forums, I'm having trouble finding information on this company.

1. Are they located in the US?
2. I see some positive user reviews on their cars? What is their reputation in general?
3. I've looked for their cars on tower hobbies and amain but can't find any. I find this odd. Makes me question how easy it will be to find parts if I buy a kit. Is their website my only option to buy a car from them and parts?
4. I currently own a RC10T4 and Savage Flux HP. How would the quality of a Caster Racing vehicle compare to what I currently have. Specifically, I'm considering a Fusion Truggy.
5. Any other pertinent information regarding Caster you think I should know?

I apologize for my ignorance, but I am a lone basher and have no friends or contacts within the hobby. Sometimes the workers at my LHS don't have time or patience for the uneducated, which I understand because I know they can't waste all their time on one customer or answering questions on products they don't carry.

Thanks for your help!

you got friends here !

i like casters products but don't own any . did you check casters dedicated threads ?

they don't claim to be in the US so my guess is that it isn't !
they have dealers in the us : http://www.rctech.net/forum/electric...er-racing.html

but I may be wrong

if you like US stuff, why not tekno ? seems easier to find !

Caster is not located in the US but there are distributors in the US. You can contact Rick at CRPplus.com. Rick is very good and if he has the part in stock it will get shipped out no later than the following day and usually sends everything priority mail. I currently have a s10sc truck and absolutely love it. I also recently purchased a s10b 4wd buggy that I am still getting used to and setup. The only parts that I have broken have been due to my less than stellar driving. I highly recommend them and like I said Rick at CRPplus will take care of you

Amain.com use to deal with them but recently marked them all done and no longer stock them. Was disappointedat 1st but managed to get a whole lot of parts for 50%+ off.

To be honest, having raced the Caster vehicles for 5 years, 2 of them as part of their Canadian team, I'd look elsewhere.

I race for Caster Racing and I love our cars. I've had good luck out of them and have found them to be very durable. Its hard to beat the support from Rick at casterracingparts.com and from our rctech threads. I highly recommend.

Yes www.casterracingparts.com is the USA importer for caster racing. Caster has revamped there cars in the last year and are a ton better. Caster USA even has a race team. As far as Amain they stopped buying from me due to them not selling enough for there quota. There is a lot of small hobby stores that do sell caster Plus super fast shipping from caster USA.. I hope this helps you out. Have a great day.
