Default Sharper Image Mini R/C set..Can anyone identify these?

I found this set of mini R/C cars while looking through an e-mail ad.

http://www.sharperimage.com/us/en/ca...id=2&catid=201

Can anyone identify who these cars might be made by and tell me if I can get parts and hop-ups to work with them? Is $30 a good price for 2?

Thanks!

They look like some of the ones that were selling like crazy just before X-mas last year in the malls and LHS--I even picked up two and gave one away as a gift. However, I am unable to tell for sure because the picture doesn't show the charger but the charge rate does appear to be the same. If they are the same, I believe bulk price was around $5.00 each and retail around $10.00 just after X-Mas. I've also seen them as high a $20.00 each but that was when there was a high demand and it depended on the body. I don't know if there are any hop-ups (why?) and I can't tell you the specific brand that I picked up since I don't have the car with me right now.

I beleive Walmart sells them now. Did they come in the same box? I believe that Nkok is the Brand name but I am not sure how they are built or anything. Sorry but I may have helped you a little.
