    theres a reason for the low price....SMARTECH SUX!!! i hate to tell u, because ya they are not only cheap in price but cheap in value. There just a real knock-off company, trying to re-create Traxxas' stuff. Most of all their parts break on any kind of little impact, they're engines r no good, have no power. the list goes on. if i were u, id save my money, and get a better one.

    yeah but the prices they are asking i could buy another motor and then it would be a good rc wouldent it compare it to another company in value like it is like traxxas hpi duratrax megatec trinity just what is it closest 2 or is it the worst u can get

    no it wouldnt be good with another engine. every single part is suposidly crap. and it is hard to find replacment parts. it is not worth the money. after you fix everything you will have spent as much if not more then a traxxas or hpi

    dude, pimp, if ur just gonna argue with us on wether or not smartech is good or not, just get one and see. u asked if they where good, we said no, can u take it and leave it??? no need to question over an opinion.

    i personally argree with monsterrc, alisar has had a smartech, hated it and will prolly never get it again. so its ur chance taken. all i gotta say

    I have driven one, but just for a few minutes, it broke and had to work on it. It was a friends, he got it and barely used it, it either broke or wouldn't start at all. They are trash, every single part. I would advise not to buy one, spend a little more on a good RTR and you will enjoy it a lot more and you'll keep your hair.

    dude i got smartech and it broke in 2 weeks and it will break in 2 to 3 weeks if u get 1 aswell

    BUT SmARTECH DO do some good on road cars there buggys and monster trucks suck
    there on road cars are good cause loades of people are saying that
    im going to get a on road car of smartech cause there reliable
    DO NOT BUY MONSTER TRUCK OR BUGGY WITH SMARTECH THEY DO BRAKE EASILY

    just cause i like the rush more than the savage thats dont mean i dont know what im saying
    i got 1 of theses smartech cars there absalutly CRAP!
    it broke in about 5jumps (my buggy)
    if u want my advice just get a onroad car there cheap with smartech and there much more reliable then the buggys and stuff the monster truck does live longer but only about 5 weeks longer than the buggy
    the on road car lives about 1 or 2 years im not to sure
    heres a site for cheap nitro cars from smartech got some videos aswell

    *onroad smartech cars are good*
    *off-road smartech cars are crap* *just a warning*

    ok well it looks like i will try a on road if i dont like it i will take the radio gear and motor mount and motor and sell it and get my money back it is just unbeliveable how cheap the cars are 150 that is cheap but i still really do not get where u r getting at by saying that the parts break easily i have driven about 10 rc cars and been in the rc joint for a year and a half and not 1 time have i seen a rc that dosent break at 40 mph and hitting something every 1 will break like that the only 1 that hasent broken and crashed is my axis i have ben 50 in it and hit something head on and it dident break and they r cheap cars in price but not quality so i thought that if u need a radio system servos u can get this 1 and have more money like tower hobbies brand radio for just the receiver and controll is 100 bux and this whole car is 150 so it is a good deal i think and all nitro rc cars are going 2 break if u get crazy with it and all made out of the same thing PLASTIC

    i have a smartec car and its a peice of #@$% . The nitro gas is stupid. It takes certain gas. You cant replace the broken parts because smartec nvr returns your mail-E-Mails. And I broke it in 4 places before the engine was even broke in!

    THEY SUCK!

    Stay away!
