"Yada, Yada, Yada... Just another buggy"

The stickers for the dish wheels are a nice touch though.

i just dont understand why would you copy casterracing's buggy design, sure there may be some differences but isnt it better to have somthing original and just as good if not better.

I hope the built quality will be better than caster racing's ZX-1...the built quality on the ZX-1 is horrible...the diff gears kept stripping,..some racers even used other brands diff parts...the ZX-1 has a pretty sound design but the built quality needs improving...Hope it gets better with the yada yada yada...

It isnt a copy of caster racing's buggy, it IS caster racing's buggy.

Different companies distribute the clone wars buggies from China and Taiwan. Case in point, ther are two new versions of the one PRP Swift. The Swift is made by Nanda in China, and is selling the buggy to anyone (Rd logics SHO, PRP Swift, Schumacher Swift, and a new version I saw on ebay).

Protech is alot like Carson, they sell buggies from many different manufacturers. Protech sells some Hong Nor stuff under Protech, some Smartech stuff (which is also rebadged), it never ends. ..... .... ... ..

ok then thats understandable, but why would you sell the same product rebaged, it wouldnt sell very well because most RC off road racers know if this would be a copy and 1 or 2 of the copies would be left out and in the end fail.

RaceMasta,

Dude, so many of the RC cars out now are rebadged;

AE MGT = TTR MTA4

Tower Hobbies ST15 = Sinyih ST15

Trinity Nitro Spyder = Flying Point TPS (need a cover page, didnt you get the memo?)

Losi LST = Not sure, but not losi

HB cars = Sacker = Ming Yang (didnt know that one, thanks mojo)

Jammin = Hong Nor

Ofna Hyper series = Ho Bao

There are a million others.
