    Show us Traxxas!

    Another thread got me thinking, it'd be pretty cool to show all of your loyal customers where they're cars are built! Like pictures and video of the factory or something!

    I could understand R and D being top secret but showing how they make them, I don't think that's a huge secret I mean there are a bunch of other companies out there making R/C vehicles.

    But just imagine a 1/10 scale assembly line in Taiwan.
    I tried being reasonable, I didn't like it.

    I think they are imported from another company. HPI says it plain on their site they use motors they do not manufacture.

    Traxxas cars are assembled by hand in the USA. The parts for them are made in Taiwan.

    I found several posts where you say this and then NC directly contradicts you

    It is great to think they are assembled in the US, but the cost of a slash would be pushing $500
