(note I did not say I was exclusive) Where RD plans to go with their distribution of TM and any sponsorships I do not know it is their business. I wish them well. I will be happy to support any needs your local hobby shops in the USA have so that you can get the product you need when you need it. As soon as the site is up I will provide you a link. We will also see you at the races to support you.

PS mongooses are basically G4 evo's so any needs you have we can cover. We will also only be covering the US market. Other markets have distributors and it is not our business to meddle in their market.
Motorman plz do not get mad at me this is just a question. Are you saying you will ask for more money for the car than others in US? per your above posts.

XRC the answer is no. I am not going to be a retailer I am a distributor. The hobby shops will set their prices based on whatever their markup is. The street numbers I quoted are based on the upper end of where I figure dealers will price them. It could be at those numbers or less depending on the shops own internal workings and their established markups. What we won't be doing is any ebay selling or market flooding with direct customer sales because that hurts the store fronts and makes it more difficult to get shops to carry our product so they have it when the customer wants it. What we will be doing some of in the beginning is taking paid preorders for products from customers. These sales will be delivered through the hobby shop of the customers choice and the dealer markup paid to the shop of their choosing. This connects us to the shop. This connection allows the shop to connect with us so they know where to go for the customers parts needs. If anything you will see some things come down in price through the shops. I can say tha price of the base car is going up. I know that there was one shop in cali that was selling mongoose kits for 200 dollars I can tell you that you can't even touch a G4S for that price from the factory now before it even gets to a distributor.
The plus part is we will have K factory for MBX5,777,NTC3,V1R V1RR,RRR MTX3&4 all under one roof along with the G4S and support parts for all its predecessors all under one roof. The customers and shops won't have to deal with looking for a one stop source anymore. As of today we are taking preorders for G4S cars for delivery in the middle of feb. If you have interest drop us an email. I don't want to get into the business of being sales in this thread so this will be my only post about it. We will have a website soon with shops that are already attached to us with an state locater.

I much prefer to discuss the car, setup and successes here.
Does this answer your question? if not please be more specific and I'll see if I can clarify things more.
