I think it makes sense for each brand to have this difference. So you can get a losi if you want the removable harness and hacker if not.

I wonder if hacker are producing the esc too.

The circuit boards in the picture look like they might be slightly different but its hard to tell. Are they?

I meant Hacker cant come out and say we produce the Losi for some legal reason? Nice post Kyle. So does anyone not think they are one in the same now?

What we could be seeing is that both losi and hacker source oem parts from the same manufacturer.

So they could still be assembled in different factories.

Maybe novak have started supplying oem parts

Comparison Pictures of Hacker 17.5 Motor - Novak 10.5 Brushless Motor

To be honest, when you view the Hacker or Losi next to a Novak, the Hacker/Losi motors look like crap, but looks are not all that matters. Seeing these side-by-side I'm pretty sure Novak is not supplying any motor parts to Hacker/Losi.

The PC Board inside the Novak is different than Hacker, and the Hacker and Losi boards are identical.

Yeah I see what you mean. A very close copy I think we can call it.

Yeah I noticed that too. What is up with that? It looks like the Hacker/Losi can is machined and then left out behind the warehouse to rust before final assembly.
