Default Tekin/Castle ESC's.. Just a rumor?

okay I was talking with a buddy a couple days ago about the Mamba Max ESC and the R1 ESC... and he tells me that Tekin buys their stuff from Castle.

now I think that's just a bunch of hot air but I don't know really. what's the real story?

tekin has said that is not the case in the electronics forum, but it is indeed a rumor.

A rumor that is supported by the fact that when the sticker comes off the mini-rage brushless motors, they have the same green anodized can as the Castle products. Doesn't mean anything more than they may have used the same motors then.

Other than that, I've yet to see any real similarities between the two companies products.
