Default OFNA going electric

Today they put up new forum sections and one of them happens to be on road electric. It's coming fellas. Don't know if they will be worth a crap but it's another option.

Its a shaft drive, fiberglass chassis, lexan shock body car. I guess its aimed to be cheap and affordable to race rcgt.

But thats all I know

Pardon, OFNA had been in EP at more than 10 Years ago.
The title said it "going electric", is not so appropriate.

The genuine name of OFNA in that time is Hong Nor, OFNA is just the US importer company, in Taiwan had released at least 2 EPTC chassis, but no 1 is sucessful.
I remember some their US, Taiwan and Japan GP drivers join sometimes to EP races without any preparation, as we can see how unsucess is their products promotion through the big events.
I saw in a big race an US driver breathing deeply and shaking head since his EP car has no traction and bad performance in carpet, like to say to the people "buying this stuff is just a trouble choice", then the driver didn't make any adjustment in the table, like to say us "believing changing setting will make any improvement with this kind is wrong".
I think OFNA is so good, but just in GP cars not also in EP, this is what i think!

To Ofna's credit, their new JL10 debut was very successful in Carpet. Ofna not only won the first rcgt challenge series 2 race, but dominated everyone($300+ cars) by 2 laps. It is also very competitive on Asphalt too taking 2nd at series 4 race. It is also a big gun on the 13.5 class. I think after a long break, Ofna is on teh right track to being a great car for entry level/sportsman drivers like the TC3 was. The car is very capable. For $130, it can race with the best of them!
