Unless........... you didnít acquire any licensing, used inferior lexan materials and outsourced all manufacturing to take advantage of child or slave labor to produce a bootleg product.

No thanks, the GT Warrior body is fine as is, and its made in America!


Nice body and works well!!! But alot of guys want some thing different.. As for the licensing?? Is nothing as long a you do not use the name.. Call it whatever you want.. So could say yours looks like the vett as long as you do not call it a vett..

Its true Mark, you could try to get away with that, but there are companies that have been busted for licensing infringment on the "likeness" of cars too.

Just ask yourself what ever happened to a few of the bodies that were available for GTs a few years ago without licensing. Good luck.

That's what Alpha RC does with it's bodies.. They're close enough to the real thing but are different enough so that they don't have issues with licensing

For the time being, i will continue to run the kyosho ferrari. I didn't build this car to run a body that looks like nothing, so if kyosho decides to discontinue the Ferrari, it may be a deal breaker... I may as well be running 1/10 scale mod at that point.

I'm sure Nick Case is not aware that the Ipanema body was designed by a racist bigot.

What gives you the arrogance to respond to anything I write after your remarks to me? Let me make myself clear, don't you ever respond to anything I write, because I will slam you everytime and let people know that you are a racist jerk whose product should be boycotted. You got that?

So do us both a favour, ignore my posts and I will ignore yours.

Back on topic... got my Jammin GT out on the road today. What did I learn?

A) This thing absolutely screams! Couldn't even run it up to full speed on my short street before I had to brake. Look forward to getting it out on a real track.

B) The sensored operation is awesome (using smartsense mode on the MMP). I was amazed at how slow I could get it to go. Even at a snails pace no cogging. Glad I went with sensored.

Next will be getting out the EagleTree to see what kind of power it's making.

The eb4 is 1/8, thunder America had it listed wrong so tower listed it wrong, I contacted thunder to confirm that the eb4 is 1/8 and if you Google eb4 you'll see that
