Default Country of origin

Anyone know the countries of origin for the major brands such as team associated, losi, X-ray, and other top brands? I'm thinking kyosho and Mugen are still made in japan. Hong nor and hobao still made in Taiwan? Thanks

We're talking about where they are made right? If so, I've been wondering the same thing. Team Durango's HQ is in the UK but doesn't mean the cars are from there right?

Yes, I'm curious about where the race kits are manufactured. Such as team associated is based in the U.S., but where do the kits come from?

I just looked all over my mbx7 box and manual. All I could find was "product of Japan"

many of our on-road stuff is still made in Japan, some components are made in Taiwan and China but designed in Japan.

off-road HB cars are made in Taiwan, designed in the USA.
