Membership 420
Nitro 320
E-Buggy 320

I believe is the structure based on the post before.

So i have just finished reading all the posts and wow there is some hate out there for stuff people dont know.

I know of 2 refunds given to people in Australia and all mney was returned Membership and car cost.

Yup cars are late "Shit Happens" in a COVID world, if you can tell me one industry that has not been affected by this then fuck they are lucky and maybe one of a handful of people.

I know COVID has affected people personally as i had to close a trading card store due to not being able to have custmers in the shop and have stock turn over. Products were late by 4-5 weeks for cardboard i would hate to know what it would be like to make metals and get supply to build something new.

Just my 2 cents and what i have seen

The current price for the nitro buggy with membership is $380. There isnít yet an ebuggy though. Still being developed. And also 20% off parts as a member.

Nitro buggy $380. The ebuggy is still being developed, but for easy numbers letís say itís also $380.

Nitro+ebuggy=$760+420= $1,180
You also get 20% off parts as a member.

Yup, theres definitely a bunch of hate here for JQ. Not sure why, he seems like a cool guy trying to help racing rc community.
If we say subscription 420$ + nitro buggy 380$ + lets say ebug 380$ = 1180$
Thats cheaper than any other kit on the market, plus you would be getting discounts on parts. I'll wait until buggy comes out and see how it performs. For people who already paid for subscription, it would be fair to count that year from the date when they recieve the car, just like other people said.

If you think about it this way too, 1 full price kit is $690. If you did the membership and just 1 kit youíd pay $800. Thatís a $110 difference with the membership. If you race regularly, you could easily spend more than $110 in parts over a season of racing. Add in the access to all the members, information about the brand, tuning help, upcoming releases, etc. I think thereís definitely value in it.

Pricing aside, there is A LOT more to the program then just price.

There is ďNOĒ other brand offering the access to information and support in the industry.

Mayako is a community of people around the world, not just an RC brand

Agree 100%. No better way to describe it. Thank you for wording it this way. 👍

TL;DR thread summary:

Saying it's good and awesome even after having never seen it = OK
Saying it sucks and is a rip-off even after having never seen it = Not OK

Strange isn't it? Likewise, asking valid questions about ongoing customer issues = hate.

Well, some of us on here and ALL off us in the community HAVE seen it, so yes we can say that.

How could you think that saying something sucks or is a rip-off after having NEVER seen it, is OK?
Sorry, but your logic is flawed.
