https://hpisavagex46.wordpress.com. Have you been looking around to find out the manufacturer behind Redcat Racing’s latest 2wd Brushless Buggy, the Twister XB? I might just have the answer for you.

The proof is in the pictures. The following are all pictures of China’s Himoto Racing 1/10 Brushless 2wd Buggy.

Himoto Brushless 2wd Buggy or Redcat Twister XB?

Price-wise, this has a street price of $10-30 US less than the RedCat Racing re-branded model.

If you still carry the slightest bit of doubt, Alishanmao, the tech representative of Redcat Racing, used to represent RCToyHouse.com. Possibly, he still works for RCToyHouse, or, there could even be a similar ownership to the two RC online firms! In any case, have a look at this picture. It should put many doubts to rest.

So you see? They’re mentioned in the same breath! One more thing… going from the text… it seems that Himoto IS HSP Racing, and the “Pro” Redcat Hurricane XTR could be the HSP Bazooka, a.k.a. Kyosho Inferno MP7.5 copycat!

    Hi,
    So out of interest whats the difference between Haiboxing Racing, and Himoto? are they the same guys again?

    Also how have you found BSD to deal with? Just been emailing them about being a dealer here in New Zealand. 🙂

    Thanks
    Timon

    The remote control is cheap I need to replace it but can’t find any . I want a 2 thumb control not the wheel one

    • You can get a fellow cheap one from hobbyking.com under the hobbyking brand (bootleg flysky). more expensive option would be by Sanwa a.k.a. Airtronics.

      But you should get use to the wheel-type. once you get the hang of it it’s much easier to visualize, especially when driving in opposite direction. After switching, i never looked back.

      the included control does quite a good job and has a good response actually – the gt2 is more stable than the gt3.
