They are based out of France and not available in the United States.
I mass produced the first electric 1/8 scale buggy and truggy.
I have thousands of dollars of caster racing inventory available.

good looking car but no parts support in us makes it unattractive.

This kit oozes quality and well thought design. I wonder how many kits out there come with so much aluminium parts, even aluminium servo horns for both throttle and steering. Look at the way brake bias is adjusted. Even the brake discs look exactly the same as the expensive PSM discs (probably are the same).

At around 500-520 Euros it isn't cheap, but other than different springs and sway bars (if they're not included) I doubt you would need to spend anything more on hopups.

I'm surprised there hasn't been any more interest in this buggy on rctech.

Does anyone know who manufactures this kit or in which country it is made? (Not the brand). Ok found out it's designed in France and made in Taiwan.
