Where to Buy High Performance, High Quality Electric RC Cars at Lower Prices?. – by Julian Wong on Buzzle.com

Selecting a good electric hobby-grade remote controlled car is not about picking the biggest brand names around, nor forking out hard-earned cash for the highest-priced rc car or truck around. These days, economies of scale, advancements in production technology, and the outsourcing of production to countries of low-cost labor has enabled us to enjoy high-performance, high-quality RC cars and trucks at much lower prices.

While some may squirm at the thought of a piece of Taiwan or China-branded and manufactured machinery, the fact of the matter is that many of the big names make their RC models wholly or in part in Taiwan or in China, either in company-opened manufacturing plants, or more oftenly, in leased production facilities. In recent years, with China and Taiwan-originated RC brands like Hobao (better known as Ofna, maker of the Hyper 7) and mega-brands like Thunder Tiger taking pole position at various ROAR, IFMAR and JMRCA rc car racing competitions, the “cheap and inferior products” stigma often associated with the two countries is fast-dissolving.

In fact, Thunder Tiger in recent years acquired the well-established race-oriented Associated Electric, a.k.a. Team Associated, and has since applied their technologies to their range of RC cars and trucks. The brand popularly known as “Ofna” on the other hand, exclusively distributes China and Taiwan-produced RC car makes like Hobao, Jammin, and Hong Nor. In the wake of their success, skills transferred to local engineers via leased production have spurred new RC market entrants like BSD Racing (already making a name for its 1/8 Land Ripper) and Exceed RC – which feature various models that directly rival the quality and performance of popular, hot-selling ones such as the HPI Savage X, Kyosho Inferno VE, RC10T. Even where motors and ESCs are concerned, China’s HobbyWing has rather successfully permeated the mid-range hobbyist with lower cost, yet high-performance alternatives to offerings by Novak, Tekin and Castle Creations.

What level of “savings” are we talking about? Well, a good 30-40%! Moreover, many of these “spin-offs” or “knock-offs” you may call, come fully hopped up with top end parts – like 16mm big bore oil-filled threaded shocks, polished high-flow exhausts, full-metal transmission, and high output motors or engines. If you are looking for high-performance, high-quality RC cars at low prices, the Asian RC revolution is here.
