If I'm not mistaken, they are imported by Schumacher USA.

hey thanks for the help guys. now for another question. how do those shocks work? i recently bought 2 sets of 4 tamiya shocks for $80 and i'm really happy with them. They are really smooth. better than my hpi super shocks and every shock i have worked on. so i would really like to know how you guys feel about them. thanks.

a while back on the rctouring boards i remember some talk of the tamiya shocks being great. some of the yokomo drivers were running them i think. i know the yok's are good too, so i might be wrong about that, but i do know some guys were purposely switching to them. that's all i got.
