Default Where is VBC Racing from?

I can't seem to find any details of the origins of VBC Racing. Confusion for me....

1) there is also CRC VBC Racing

2) FF12 kit is actually the same as Huge FF12

Can someone help clarify please?

Huge is Surikarn's Chaidejsuriya's brand.

I believe that VBC Racing is a Hong Kong brand and CRC is the US importer and main distributor.

I personally own the VBC Wildfire and it is a very high quality car that is extremely fast. In fact, it is the the current 17.5 Sedan ROAR National Champion.

China as everything else U.S. consumers buy.

Although in retrospect would fully support a company that actual sourced and produced said product in the United States.

Their carbon fiber is sourced from USA, though that's probably where it ends.

Great products nevertheless.

I don't have any relations with them, but i could tell nowadays is almost impossible to find anything is totally made in same country.
Even same pen is made separately in different parts of the World.

I worked for two international manufacturing companies. One company would source aluminum extrusions from Thailand, iron castings from China and cable from Brazil. The extrusions were shipped to Mexico for machining then all parts were shipped to a plant in the USA for product assembly and a "Made in the USA" stamp. If it was a car it would not be allowed to carry that sticker. Take note only about 20 current cars/trucks on sale in the USA are allowed to do that.
