D8: it only gives specs for width height weight etc on the RTR, but that is the complete manual with all the option parts list, and more.

People are blind because if they never heard of it they think it is not good. Some people just are too lazy to do the research and ask questions. I really do not care WHO is winning races or not. I look for a product that appeals to me buy how it looks first and THEN go into the details with it on how it is made and if I like it, THEN see about getting parts and I do not really care what a local hobby shop has or what locals are running what. My LHS's never have what I ever needed even when I had the more well known brands so does not really matter what I drive I will have to order parts or they will. At least I get it faster ordering online and do not have to drive to the hobby shop to pick the part up. If a brand was junk you would hear and read about it everywhere and look for reason's WHY. not just people saying what they heard and judge from there if the person did not maintain his car and was just a plain idiot because even a idiot can make a $800 truggy or buggy look like a piece!

The Chinese always makes things CHEAPER for us all, but never groundbreaking (well in the 21st century at least)

a lot of companies will try similar layouts from other companies.. look at the Losi and the 808 susp layout... as long as it works and performs well, you wont have anything to worry about..

It is kind of hard to be uber creative these days. There is only so many differences you can do.
