It depends on what you mean by 'right'.

If you mean is it an R Hobbies Mi4 touring car, then you would be right.

The one thing it isn't is a Schumacher car.

This is not an Xray
This is not a Tamiya
This is not a HPI

They are all copies and if anyone does buy one, be aware that they won't be as strong as the originals, and there is no guarantee that any part from the originals would actually fit the clones.

Mardave and Schumacher are 2 different companys.

Both are British.

For Schumacher, the mouldings and kit assembly's are done in house I do beleive

The Supastox is very much a Schumacher car, it's more connected to Schumachers first cars than anything else they sell. The origin of the multi link rear suspension came from the development of a new 1/12th that didn't happen. The Supastox was seen by many people while it was under development as it was tested at local tracks and preproduction samples were shown around to selected racers at big events.

Schumacher does still make some parts in-house and RTR assembly is a mix of local pieceworkers and in-house final assembly, but Schumacher like every other car manufacturer uses Chinese companies for some of its parts production.
