Re: HPIracing vs Redcat vs Seben racing

While I personally don't own any redcats or sebens there are those that do like them. Any opinions you get are just that those, opinions. Some people will state they love a certain brand just because that's what they own with no experience of other brands.

The value of something is determined solely by the buyer. The most valuable stamp in the world is worth millions and mostly due to age and the fact that it was printed wrong (as most stamps are). I would never pay that for a stamp but obviously someone would. Don't worry too much by what someone else says, it's your money and as long as you're happy that's all that matters.

Re: HPIracing vs Redcat vs Seben racing

Never heard of Seben Racing.
Redcat Racing is hard, very hard to get parts and service for. Fact.

You did good by getting an HPI Sprint, lots of people around here have em and race them indoors all winter.

As for quality, I would bet you would have better luck with HPI. JMO

Re: HPIracing vs Redcat vs Seben racing

Brix, your friend is going to find our really quick when his brakes his car why they are so much cheaper than the name brand stuff. Most of those cheap cars come from the same factory in China and re-branded with various names. The material quality is much lower. The quality control is non existent. I bet after 20 batteries the car will be half worn out. Good luck getting parts. For your car you will go to the local hobby shop and get a part or have it in a week. Your buddy will wait half the season for a part if he breaks something. In the end you get what you pay for.

Re: HPIracing vs Redcat vs Seben racing

I agree, you did right by getting HPI Sprint. I've bashed last summer with it outside and now race with it indoors. The only problem I had was the battery wouldn't last long, and I found out that the esc was set for lipo.

Re: HPIracing vs Redcat vs Seben racing

Never heard of Seben Racing either...
I have several RC's (see signature).

That old line that RedCat parts are hard to come by is just that old... I have never had a problem getting parts for my redcats. I have had some problems getting parts form Losi and I have had a hard time finding replacement belts for my HPI Sprint 2 flux.. But that also varies based on your local hobby shop.

Drive what you love... and love what you drive... Every product has it problems...

Driving style dictates what you buy... If you are a basher, you want tough (my redcat 1/10 scale is really tough) if you want to race then the losi is great for racing... but not that tough. The HPI sprint 2 flux is stupid fast, but not that durable... So the choice depends on you.

Listen to people that actually own and have driven the products, instead of the people that just repeat the same old crap....
1/5 scale: Redcat Chirmera EP Pro, Redcat XB-E, Exceed Mad Gear Dallas Edition | 1/8 scale: Redcat Mirage, Exceed Max Stone rock crawler | 1/10 scale: HPI Sprint 2 Flux, Redcat Caldera 10SCE, Losi TEN-SCTE, Redcat Pagani Huayra Pro | 1/12 scale: Kyosho Snow Groomer | 1/18 scale: Turnigy Ford Escort | Hobby King CF105 Avro Arrow | Hobby King C182 Cesna
