I have inspected the TRF416WE replica and I must say I cant tell the original and the replica apart with the dampers changed to blue.

They both handles the same to me as well, the plastic finishing is also good but the quality isnt up to scratch. Cant win 'em all I guess.

After seeing this toilet at my local track I wish the best of luck to any body who actually buys one of these POS. If you can't tell a real Tamiya to this you need to get your eyes checked

I'm not going to comment on another mfg's car, but Sammy your car was a bag of ass tonight. It sounded like a lawn mower in the corners. LOL.

After seeing how little it took to break the hole for the pin in the cvd I swear it was made of recycled coke cans.

I must apologize to Sam after walking by his pit, accidentally exhaling near his scab copy car and breaking it in half. Oh well, leasson learned, dont buy a POS copy car.

Such maturity, such charactor ...... I pity New England You need to come down from your high horse and smell the grass. You wont say such things when a clone whoops your butt on the track.

Peace.

I'd like to see that happen. The caliber drivers that posted that his car looked like garbage are all drivers that have make a-mains on the national stage. So, you can sit there and complain that people are picking on a POS chassis, or you can prove that the car is worthy of the replicated name badge.

If you decide to take up that last challenge, you have to do it with 100% cloned parts, or the point is moot. Good luck with that. The chassis is crap.

Alright I wont say anything else but will offer out this challenge to you. You run this car with all copy pieces only and I'll run my car at the IIC 13.5 rubber and we'll see who does better

Sammy,
Maybe the same company can create a "Parts Cloner" to immediatly replicate all parts on site, similar to concepts featured in Star Trek.

Perhaps our friend who is calling us out about our "High Horse" should take a couple steps back and realize we are playing around with Sammy. However, if you really want to push this, realize I could cut my car in half down the middle, run with training wheels attached on the back, utilize a cardbord box as a body, blindfold myself with sandpaper laced with mace, and probably have about 5 laps on you after the first minute.

How's that for a high horse? Please understand our comments are in jest,and we are having fun with our friend here.
