Default Hyper vs. HoBao motors

Does anyone know if there is a difference between the Hyper motors and the HoBao motors? There is a guy on Ebay that sells the HoBao motors and they look just like the Hyper motors except they are cheaper priced.

Thanks
Jon

that's incorrect tunerjetta29, all Ofna do is distribute HoBao products in America and that's it.

I believe the Hyper engines are the same ones as the HoBao ones. Just renamed.

Incorrect. Hyper=Hobao, Jammin=Hong Nor, Ofna is the US distributor for both. Not the same
