They're made in China, but the government isn't much into enforcing IP laws, so not really.

Those are what you would call "Throw Away's", cause once they break you mine as well throw them away.

It's kinda sad.. Over the years I've seen so many kids with these types of cars come to the track for help... typically they only got a few runs on it before it fell apart.. not much help we can offer because there just aren't any part available...

Most of these kids really want to participate in running and racing at the track, but they spent all there money on a piece of crap... so most never make it back out..... eBay is full of these POS cars...
