Finnaly my car is arrived =)
It's great and looks much better than i thought.
Only thing is that the front right C hub is bad.Both side has the left version so the right wheel looks strange
Also the spool was in wrong position in the bulkhead.
The other HUGE problem which is not a clone's problem the original has it too,the motor mount!
HPI SATURN 27T and other motors like this(saturn 20t,fireball 15t,carson ce4,tamiya 27T,etc...)
The motors front bearing is bigger than the hole in the motormount so it won"t fit :S:S:S:S:S:S
Anyway it's a very good deal,only needs a little DERMEL work

@davzone
do you know your lovely looking car is not carbon fibre!
it's fibre glass and will work completely different from the real ones

It doesn't matter,i thought 700$ is too much for a 27T class.
I have a cyclone tc for higher cat. I just hate changing motor esc after every run.
This car is perfect for it's TT01 price(including bearings alloy shaft ,oil dampers etc.)
(I have a TT and its good for the parking lot jumping from stares but not for racing.i can twist a TT by hand a lot.This car is much harder,and can be set up for different conditions.

NOTE again:Saturn 27T motor is used to this car,not an LRP 3turn BL...

I use this car for racing, but must change some parts with original tamiya worth of USD 100. Handling is very good.. I wonder how good is the real one.. must be a lot better..

Wait, am I looking at a picture of a copy, or a picture of the actual Mi4?

Copies can *look* so similar nowadays. Have you guys seen the DF-03 (Dark Impact) clone? It's so hard to tell whether it's a legit Tamiya or not...

The rear diff got some spares(you can see in the pics), and i changed the Chub(tamiya 54031) because i got the car with left type on both sides.Everything else is the original chinese version.

Thumbs up

Hi, just thought I'd throw in my 2 cents worth.

Seems to me that everyone that has been thrashing this 416 copy has been people who own original 416's. Anybody who bought this car said it's just fine. I bought one, ran it, sold it, and just ordered another one for myself. Yes it has a few shortcomings but if you take an original 416 and knock 300 dollars off the price that's what you get. Oh well!!!!

Oh, and everybody that has been bitching and moaning about "copyright" and "patented" and "stealing", all I have to say to you guys is, I hope you don't have any downloaded music or movies on your hard drives because that's pretty much the same thing. STEALING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Fact is that r/c is getting way too expensive for the "average Joe" and it's only because of these Chinese companies selling knock offs and cheap "optional" parts that we can continue to enjoy the hobby we have chosen.

In summary, whoever doesn't like it can choose not to buy it. Just let the rest of us have fun.

P.S. When I was racing this chassis at my local track, I whooped tc5s, Cyclones and others. So it's not all about the chassis, you need to know how to drive as well.

RC Racing is not for the average Joe. Bashing is.
