Default Topcad

A Hong Kong company. I hadn't heard of them, they make just about every scx 10 part from alloy.

Just because something is made of metal doesn't make it better, I mean look at Integy...

Yup, you aint missing much.
Most of their stuff is exactly the same as integy just even worse quality control.

not sure about topcad's stuff but not all of the parts that come from hong kong are crap... i bought an STS .28 nitro engine from hong kong for my savage and it hauls some serious ass. right now they are the only place i can order parts from. a friend bought an STS .30 from them and it hauls ass too.. i have no problem buying parts from hong kong.

i've been bagging on my savage with many aluminum parts with no problems.. the way i see it is that yes plastic parts have more "give" and they can bend back but are not exactly stronger than aluminum parts.

I think they have the front confused with the rear


Some of their stuff looks pretty neat from a shelf queen standpoint, wonder how well it would hold up. And the front bumper thing looks rediculous. I though my Dingo bumper was a handup on my honcho lol

The one part I was really thinking would be nice are the aluminum shock towers. My stock ones are bent and twisted and way out of alignment... I'm sure they take a lot of impact that the shocks themselves would take if the towers were metal though. So maybe it's not such a good idea.

I didn't see that LED bar, I've been thinking of ordering a couple of the gmade 2 bucket lightbars but wasn't sure if I could mount them side by side. Stang killa, can you give a light bar width when you get them.

They also have a Tamiya style plastic light bar.
And
Windshield wipers!

Did anybody notice those axle housings under that Honcho? Wonder if they are worth a look......probably not.

EDIT: Nevermind took a look myself.....horrible steering knuckle setup. Oh well.
