Action star Jean Claude Van Damme plays a fashion designer who must join forces with a C.I.A. agent to combat terrorism.

With a plot outline like this I'm amazed I've never heard of this movie before

Hopefully, you'll be lucky enough to have your job shipped to China or some other country because the same kind of thing is being done.

See how deep that effects your pockets.

I don't think this is entirely bad for XRAY. I mean, who's the customer going to come crying to when something breaks? XRAY, of course. They just need to keep their after-market parts well stocked and watch the fools...Er...Um.. I mean money, roll in.

At first he wouldnt answer my question directly.Now he sees that his claims were WAY off base after I told him I would buy 1 IMMEDIATELY if he would Guarantee that it was an xray as his description stated and would come withthe hudy driveshafts and the xray authenticity certificate.He just emailed me and said that it is in no way an xray.He still claims it is an OEM even though i explained to him that xray produces all peices in house with the exception of the diffs which are made in switzerland, so there is no way it could even be an OEM.I hope Paul doesnt mind that i quoted his post from here and emailed it to the seller. I also forwarded the listing to customer service at Xray. Luckily I did it before he changed his listing which now doesnt mention xray or hudy in any way.Chalk 1 up for honesty.

Default RIPOFFS

It's unfortunate that the rc industry doesn't have an organization that looks out for their best interests like the the 1:1 automotive aftermarket industry has, namely SEMA. The president just signed a bill last week to give them more power to fight off the hordes of counterfitters attacking the free market places with their knock-off hot rodding parts.
http://www.sema.org/Main/ArticleDeta...ontentID=60675

I've been feeling the sting of their underhanded ways for many years now. I'm just glad that there are still many informed consumers that continue to support companies that are honest, inventive and more passionate about producing great products than they are making a fast buck.

Hope you're listening J.D.

I don't think anything is wrong with buying things made in china. My main problem is this product is nothing more than a counterfit item, no matter where it is made.....

I have seen new cars that obviously were inspired by different manufacturers but this is just plain copied....

Anyone can copy someone elses hardwork, creativeness, and engineering skills and sell it for less with less quality. People who buy these on price alone are these people's lawfull prey
