There are two main reasons for us creating this store
1. We want to create a professional RC Racing Team, and as such we need a way to unify the team, promote products, and make it financially attractive for companies to support us, and financially possible for us to in turn run the team. A team store is the solution.
2. We realised that one of the biggest complaints that JQ racers had, was the lack of availability. We wanted to take care of this problem, by making sure that anyone, anywhere, can get a hold of all JQ parts quickly and easily.
This all seems pretty straight forward. So what is the problem? The main problem is the expected reactions of distributors and dealers. JQ is selling direct, why should we bother? In my opinion this is like saying: “Mugen already make and sell a car, why should I bother?” The idea of this team store is not to take a piece of an existing pie, but to grow it by a lot! JQRacing is not a leading brand anywhere except arguably Finland and Greece, for obvious reasons (that is where we are from), so there is a lot of room to grow. We will be promoting, spreading knowledge and information about new parts, and promoting and pushing local sales channels around the world. Jqracing.com will be the central location for all this activity. This will be good for everyone, existing JQ Distributors, current and future dealers, and of course racers!
Jqproducts.com will still exist, and it will redirect to a jqracing website dedicated to information about setups, stories, image and video galleries, just like now. Our goal is to share with you everything that we learn, and make sure that you can enjoy your JQ Cars to the fullest.
Here is the break down of how the new store will work, there are three versions:
usa.jqracing.com: This is the US version, with JQ, and a growing number of our partner’s products that we use, being sold there, all shipped from Los Angeles CA.
eu.jqracing.com: This is the EU version, with JQ, and all our partner’s products that we use, being sold here, all shipped from Helsinki Finland.
international.jqracing.com: This is the version for all other countries, with only JQRacing products being sold here for now. These will all be shipped from China.
That’s it for now!
