So please, stop referring to Taiwan as China, and vice versa. It makes both Chinese and Taiwanese cringe... trust me, i try to avoid that when i go there

It s like saying Canada and the US are the same country...
Thank you!!

On Patriick's note, I just saw on EBay a 'knock-off' of our RC18T. It is almost a 100% complete COPY, selling for a couple bucks less than ours. But, if you look closely, you can see a TON of manufacturing and assembly problems! This is a good example of what Patriick is talking about.

Here's the link > RC18T Copy

Everything is still designed here in the US, it is the manufacturing that is done in Taiwan.

Woohoo...pics are good to see. A release date would be the holy grail though.

What body is on the orange/silver one? Is that a Mazda 6? Looks really narrow up top...

LOL! super sneaky pics.

The rear inner hingepins look like they mount like the Xray style...nice





It's awesome to see this much excitement out of the AE camp. Maybe if we go to their website and type ".../TC5" or ".../TC5B" we'll see a hidden directory LOL!!!

I don't think anyone has got a full-blown pic of the car without the shell off, from what people are saying in the Reedy Race thread AE have asked people not to show the full car, if they have pics.
