Default Chinese RTRs

Found these 2 Chinese off roaders on the shopping side of the Rcfans site.

Body on the buggy reminds me of a 90's Pro Cat.

Oh boy,

Another "cloning" procedure gone wrong! The price on those are probably good (couldn't read a darn word since I don't have language packs installed), but I wonder how parts and performance are going to be on those rides???

For now, there are only three places where RCs comes from that have quality stuff, they are (in no particular order) USA (ok, Taiwan too, since Thunder Tiger is the owner of AE), Japan, and Western Europe.

Perhaps in a few more years, we'll see more quality stuff come out? For now, I give them an "A" for effort, but I'm quite weary of how good of a quality those vehicles are...
