I hate cheap clones....

Some people just have no idea when it comes to innovation, just trying to make or save a few $....

my bet is the finish is the same as the Xray clone. and thats almost certainly not CF, but GRP with CF stickers

the pics are of an original I bet, the production ones will be worse

You're right. It would be a good candidate for VTA.

The pitfall I see in these clones, is the part support, or the lack of.

How about lets just support the people who engineered the original and lets all snub the clone as what it is.

after some rc fans in China testing, the car is not very good for drifting, because the precision is bad.
