hong nor is the company that makes the jammin, so i guess technically the jammin is a US rip off

Maybe. But what might have happened is that Jammin designed the buggy, Hong Nor took the contract, and then they sold it under HN Racing on other soil. Why design a buggy for just one market?

You might be right, they might have labelled the buggy, after it had already well been into design/production. His interviews did say he had his hands in the design.

I'd like to know if Hong Nor, Ho Bao, or who makes the Mayhem/Turmoil for Sportwerks?

Hong Nor manufactures the Jammin buggy and truck they are not ripping off anyone it's their property. Both Hong Nor and Ho Bao are distributed here in the USA by OFNA who doesn't manufacture anything but specs out product to those two firms in Taiwan (China).

Arecee is right ,Ho Boa and Hong Nor are two seperate manufacturers.
They are sold in Europe ,the East and Australia as thier own products.
OFNA is the distribution company in the US that relabels select products from both manufacturers as thier own brands or product lines.

Hey

Like has already been said, OFNA is a distribution branding in the USA no where else really. Hobao and Hong Nor are manufacturing companies in Asia that supply a product to OFNA for re-sale. They also supply their own brands to the rest of the world....
