Thunder Tiger distribution Changes Effective 2015

For years, Hobbico has been the distributor of the Thunder Tiger and Ace RC brands. It has been announced that Hobbico will no longer distribute Thunder Tiger and Ace RC, and that Hobby Recreation Products (HRP) will have exclusive distribution rights. Thunder Tiger is the parent company of Team Associated, but there is no mention from either company about any changes in the distribution of Associated. It looks to just encompass the Thunder Tiger brand itself, and Ace RC.


From Hobbico:

Hobbico is terminating distribution and support of Thunder Tiger products effective December 31, 2014. This includes discontinuation of the Thunder Tiger brand as well as the Ace RC brand. Hobbico has a limited amount of inventory that will be available as supplies last or until the end of the year. We suggest that dealers and consumers secure what they need to cover them through the transition period. All Thunder Tiger backorders will be canceled.
Hobbico will continue to provide product support services through the end of December 2014. Hobbico will also support Thunder Tiger team members through the this timeframe. Parts and kits will be available for team members as long as current supplies last until December 31, 2014. Product support inquiries after December 31, 2014 should be made to HRP Distributing.



From HRP:
