    Exceed Vs. Redcat

    I want to help my brother purchase a nitro RC car. his budget is under $175 but may make exceptions.
    We are debating the Exceed 1/10 scale forza .18 http://www.nitrorcx.com/51c812-fireblack-24ghz.html

    OR redcat 1/10 tornado bb pro .18 http://www.rufaster.com/RedcatRacing...oBBandS30.aspx


    Help us decide between the two or offer new suggestions

    Redcat doesnt have anything close to the Exceed 1/8th scale as far as price goes. $180 for a .21 exceed and $225 for .21 Redcat.

    go for ecxceed. They have cheap replacement parts and are quite durable. Not professional grade but great for cruisin the streets at 40mph and going of some jumps. i jump mine probably about a distance of 15 feet (exceed hyperspeed) and it lands nice and easy with no broken parts. I have however broken one dog bone, $3.30 for 2, but that was probably after about 20 jumps without rest. but either way is pretty good. hope this helps

    You get what you pay for. I've heard mixed reviews, but I've never had a Redcat myself. Some people claim Redcat is better than Exceed as far as the low budget cars go, but I've heard from others who weren't happy with it either. You can always buy used to try and get something better for less cash.
