Redcat Racing Warranty Information

One (1) Year Limited Warranty

All warranty claims must be handled through Redcat Racing and not your hobby dealer.    Click here to go to the Warranty Form

Warranty Claims

If you believe you have a warranty claim, simply fill out the form in the link above and include all information associated with the claim and submit it.  Once your claim is reviewed, we will be replying to you through the email address you provide on the form within 1-3 business days, so make sure everything is entered correctly to ensure you get a reply.  Keep in mind that sometimes our warranty emails will end up in your spam folder, so be sure to check there as well when waiting on a reply.

 

Vehicle Problem

If you have a vehicle problem, please fill out the warranty claim form.  Be very descriptive as to what the problem seems to be, and list any details about what troubleshooting has been done to try and get to the root of the problem.  If you spoke to someone through email or over the phone, please list their name so we can get more information before asking questions you may have already answered.
Since these are hobby grade vehicles, the vehicles are intended to be worked on by the customer (even in warranty situations in which we send out parts to be replaced).  In rare situations will we accept the vehicle to be sent back to our shop for evaluation or repair, but you must have approval to do so before shipping your items to us.  The customer is responsible for shipping the vehicle to us, and if deemed to be covered under warranty, we will cover the parts, labor, and shipping back to you.  If not covered under warranty, Redcat reserves the right to refuse to service the vehicle and the customer will be responsible for the purchase of any parts, as well as the shipping charges to have the items sent back.

 

Parts Problem

If you have a specific part problem, Redcat Racing will determine if the issue in question is covered under warranty and will contact you within 1-3 business days after form submission. If determined that the part or parts are covered under warranty, Redcat will send you the part(s) at no charge. We may ask for photos or that some parts to be returned prior to sending out replacement parts.
