The last was Associated,

The only "homemade" stuff that you can found in west country now are tyre, option parts and fuel.
The reason is always the same, profit profit and profit.


There is an exception with Xray which is 100 % slovakian from design to manufacturing and the last to do so.

OD is made in asia.Go to his site & read how he sends US alum & plastic over there to have it formed.Reason is simple labor is dirt cheap there & EPA has no say in asia.Also why they had to shut the whole country down a couple month early to host the Olympics & they still had athletes that couldn't breathe & getting sick.

XRAY comes from Slovakia...not Asia! best quality kits on the market

made in the US only means more$$$$$..Find me a US employee working for $10 a week. I would also think that Odonell parts may also be made in Asia and then the kits are put together here in the US..Not sure though, but one thing I am sure of is that our work force would add about 200% to the price of any kit out there

They melt & form the plastic pellets over there that are sent from over here.No parts for that buggy are made in USA only the base material that is sent to china & then made into parts.According to the interview Steve gave to the mags.
