Re: Exceed Mad Torque in Canada?

While Exceed have improved on the quality of the plastics used on some of the new cars, unfortunately getting hold of spares is another story altogether unfortunately, especially if you live outside the US and China.
While some parts from certain Exceed models are interchangeable with Redcat, HSP, Himoto etc (all rebrands of HSP) ...... Exceed also has some 'exclusive' models like the 1/8 Maddrift, where parts are more difficult to obtain, especially if you live outside the US and China, as none of the rebrands have parts for that specific model. (exclusive to Exceed)
There is unfortunately no support for Exceed up here in Canada, so for us, Exceed is pretty much out of the loop altogether, which is a pity as I do like their newer offerings.
If spares were available up here in Canada for the 1/8 Maddrift, I wouldn't hesitate to buy one, however that is unfortunately not the case. Having only 2 dealers in the US is just not enough to service the whole of North America, which would make replacements parts not only expensive to ship, but also longer wait times to obtain.
If one can't obtain spares easily enough and at a reasonable price, it's just not worth the investment, no matter how good the car may be.
When it comes to RC cars especially, part support and availability is critical and should always be one of the major deciding factors when making a decision to purchase.
For this reason, you will not find many (if any) Exceed owners up here in Canada.
Exceed, unfortunately have no plans or interest in servicing the Canadian market.
