Re: PRO exceed RC vs normal

It's the same basic platform as the buggy and monster-truck versions (I think the Rally Monster version isn't as popular). Look for reviews of the Exceed Infinitive/Dynamite (or HSP Brontasaurus)

Short answer: the monster-truck brushless version had issues with durability (and suspension travel) but the brushed version looked good. With the smaller wheels the Rally Monster may be OK. Parts are easy to get, especially since most of them are available from many Redcat dealers (look at the Redcat Volcano and Tornado models: same chassis).

I think the brushed version is an economical way to get into the hobby: your first few extra dollars would be well spent on a fast charger and a higher-capacity battery. However you won't find parts in your local hobby store (unless you have a Redcat dealer) nearby. Traxxas is good choice, but pricey. Maybe consider something like an ECX Torment -it's got the short-course look and hobby stores are selling lots of them (so they stock parts). Also, go read some of the posts on URC, like this one.

Good luck!

If buying from Nitrorcx, I would recommend you look at the Iron Track (Himoto) vehicle also. The two 1/18 scale that I got proved much more durable than the Exceed. Ditto above though, that you can't get parts locally for them.
If looking for a good SCT under $200, you could also look at the Duratrax Evader2.4. Pretty fast, durable, and parts are easy to come by also.

Re: PRO exceed RC vs normal

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.
