I know the importer for 1/5 scale in local.
Maybe he can help u for ep 1/5.

But bare in mind u need at least 8s to 12s to run a
15kg buggy very siong and also good esc to support.
Tat y very less ppl willing buy or convert to ep.
Run petrol still cheaper.
Agreed?

Choices of KM or Kovan 1/5 scales. Variations of basic to fully optioned. I can arrange sea(21days) or air freight(1 week). Do note that CNY period will get quite congested but my shipping agents tend to smoothen the traffic professionally.

Km seems to hold up better than the Rovans do

I think you are correct bro. I should consider the lipo size and the discharge rate to use. The weight of the truggy also heavy. Too less cell, maybe the car would have enough torque to move the monster.

Actually bro what i meant is. What makes you stay away from HK products. Is it because of the reliability of their products?. Is it because of their customer service...

Hi bro, i am from singapore. I believe Eric Cheng did enlightened me. The reason why there is no import of 1/5 EP rc cars to Asia. I believe was due to no or less demand here for 1/5 EP rc cars. Secondly the number of lipos cell require by the car is alot, maybe minimum requirement is 12s or more. Lastly ESC used must have higher amphere.
