That is some high quality...

For all we know, that could be a laminated sticker.

I like how the components are labeled "ESC" and "Receiver"

That is because they are next on the chopping block to be copied.

So when does Green Peace go to China and combat all the polution they are causing in the world with all their industries? I think after that invasion, copied products will come to a halt as all their industries shutdown.

I still don't understand why they copy instead of being more innovative and come up with something new.

Just to let you guys know. It's compatible with HPI pro D parts. A guy from GD tested it, and all the parts were interchangeable.

I'll try and find the comparison pics if you want.

i called it pro-c professional piece of crap.
everything is falling apart
bolts get rounded
plastic very weak always rounded
screws drop off
gears gets worn out
just two run and the car can't be run anymore until replace with original parts
estimate by the time i replace all the crap parts with the original
it would be better off buying the real thing

SUCKS BIG TIME.
For those who thinks it a bargain---yes-----if you don't run it
I'll never buy copies again serves me right

How do they keep making copies without getting sued?

Aren't the chassis copy righted?
