Hi, just thought I'd throw in my 2 cents worth.
Seems to me that everyone that has been thrashing this 416 copy has been people who own original 416's. Anybody who bought this car said it's just fine. I bought one, ran it, sold it, and just ordered another one for myself. Yes it has a few shortcomings but if you take an original 416 and knock 300 dollars off the price that's what you get. Oh well!!!!
Oh, and everybody that has been bitching and moaning about "copyright" and "patented" and "stealing", all I have to say to you guys is, I hope you don't have any downloaded music or movies on your hard drives because that's pretty much the same thing. STEALING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Fact is that r/c is getting way too expensive for the "average Joe" and it's only because of these Chinese companies selling knock offs and cheap "optional" parts that we can continue to enjoy the hobby we have chosen.
In summary, whoever doesn't like it can choose not to buy it. Just let the rest of us have fun.
P.S. When I was racing this chassis at my local track, I whooped tc5s, Cyclones and others. So it's not all about the chassis, you need to know how to drive as well.
