what a scam. After already investing nearly 600$ for a car that is slower than a regular 2wd they realize their mistake and want to again steal our money. Not onley did they make an extra 140 dollars that they practically stole on the sensored preorder but now they are trying to steal our money again. do not recomend xpower their customer service and general attitude about the mini z market is terrible and dishonest.

That seems a bit harsh and borderline slanderous. My dealings with them have always been very cordial and above board.

It would seem that you are confusing the 1/27th scale aftermarket with the Mini-Z market. On the surface it appears that you are bothered by their marketing approach which you apparently took hook line and sinker and now have a serious case of buyers remorse for being too eager or maybe overzealous in wanting to be the first kid on the block with a new toy. Take it in stride and move on. We have all taken fits of the gotta have it "NOW" syndrome which inevitably bites us in the butt. Use it as a learning experience and in the future let somebody else be the guinea pig. Once the experimental dust has settled then you make your purchase. You will save a small fortune and learn a good lesson. You might even find a real deal when somebody like you throws the same fit and sells out cheap.

pretty cool that they're coming out with a 1/27 version... wondering what costing would be like...

probably a conversion kit (from 1/24 to 1/27 consisting of the cf body frame and corresponding belts for the imt) will be in the works next? wondering how much would it cost to cross over from 1/27 to 1/24 if they will offer this "conversion"...

i met the guy who owns xpower... stephen, if i remember his name right... really cool guy, got to meet him with a fun bunch of racers when i visited rcphk hong kong... seen their 1/27 scale prototype on the tracks... really quick... so i would imagine a smaller version would go even faster....

unfortunately though... their whole platform is a bit too much for my budget...

It is not harsh when you consider they charged 560 for the sensored preorder but 440 for the sensorless and then the sensored motors were only 55 dollars on their website. so you are at 490 with you choice of sensored motor and a sensorless one to boot. Not only that the lack of communication to customers is below average. It is not that I feel bad for purchasing the car, It is an overall decent design but their rapport with their N. American dealer demonstrates a lacks of care for their dealers and customers. I don't mind spending money for a good product but a product shouldnt need an imediate revision and if it does, for those who preorder and paid a large amount they should give them the revision to show their intentions to support the end users. I will still support their 2wd platform as that is proven, affordable, and never really needed an imediate revision, however X-power's deplorable actions have left me in disbelief.

The company lists three separate "dealers" in the U.S. You state that "their" dealer doesn't communicate with "their" dealers. Could you clarify? As I previously mentioned, I have had no issues, concerns, mis communication or any other concern when dealing directly with the manufacturer's website. I have had no direct need to involve myself with the manufacturer's "dealer" network.

You are dealing with a new, highly specialized product line that is trying to create inroads into an established market. To think that there won't be bumps and pitfalls is a bit nave. The fact remains that you could have said "no" and taken a wait and see attitude. Instead you are attempting to stir up discord to soothe your own bruised feelings. Why not start with your selling "dealer" and have them work back through channels to resolve the situation instead of trying the character assassination approach.

I support local hobby shops unlike many who forget that there would be no racing without them. And from my perspective as an involved racer and avid supporter of my hobbyshop x-power does not respect the hobby shops and their customers in the way they should. That being said many other companys do have the same neglectful practises. Early on in the production of this car one of our racers here localy that speaks chinese discussed these same issues with them with the price and size of the car however no mention was made back to him about the resolutions to these issues despite him giving a large amount of neccesary feedback for the product. So before you attack my character please go and educate yourself and look in the mirror. We are talking about rc cars so please leave your personal onslaughts elsewhere.

I had a conversation with your local shop owner earlier today. Didn't he tell you? It seems that some of the issues could be at least eased if his customer's weren't so adamant about telling the World what terrible companies they were and how little they knew about how to market their products. All of this while your shop owner is trying desperately to resolve the issues. Keep up the good work youngster.

What has my age got to do with anything Either way I can drive circles around most anybody so please stop making comments about me and this thread is supposed to be about the IMT not meant for arguing. If you guys have the big race down south like tommy keeps telling me you will expect for an out of towner to win everything.... You guys can barely beat a bmainer imagine what will happen when a real racer comes to town. And with that I apolize but I am tired of your onslaughts.

As for the IMT I have heard a rumor that there MIGHT be an affordable conversion kit comming out later for the IDT so we will see

All im saying is that your basing your arguement off of the fact that I am young. Even though despite my age I excell at many things that older people believe are difficult for young people to handle or excell at. One of those things being mini-z. I am a very capable racer that is able to contend with the very best at mini z therefore my age should not be the reason you ridicule me. I can understand you being upset that I said something ignorant however age is but an number and is not a factor. If I can race faster and understand building and setup better than even the most "experienced racers" why should you disregard, nay belittle my opinion and knowledge on the topic at hand. Am I not intelligent enough to understand what is right and wrong in regards to my hobby? please enlighten me what have I said to upset you so much that on any thread you openly negate everything I have to say depite the fact that what I say is based on facts and my knowledge of Mini-z is probably greater than most or probably anybody. So if you have a problem with me please PM your complaints and I will take your list of grievances under consideration but please do not humilate yourself in public with YOUR childlike behavior. Thank you and have a nice day

I'll make a deal with you. If you keep beating your chest and proclaiming your own greatness I will do my best to not block your spot light. Agreed?
