As a vendor at the RCX show, I can verify that 1/5 scale is really taking off, based on the constant crowds and interest at our booth, along with our sales. We are the importer/distributors for Bergonzoni 1/5 scale cars and buggies in the USA and Canada. We advertise monthly in RC Car Action, and have an active website. We currently have a full review article in the June issue of RC Nitro, on our 1/5 scale Brave 2 onroad car. Those of you interested in our huge 1/6 scale offroad Dominator Competition buggy (shown on this post), please feel free to Email us for information, or visit our website at www.blackhawkrc.com.
Look for a review on the Dominator Competition buggy in the July issue of RC Car Action.
Please note that I am not trying to make this post an ad for our company, but rather to make aware to those interested in large scale gasoline powered RC vehilcles that there is a reliable and affordable source for 1/5 scale cars, parts, and upgrades. Feel free to contact us for more info (360-608-1635), or visit our website. Thanks!
