RE: OFFICIAL Discussion for the Pros and Cons of Clones in the Market

This is not the appropriate thread to ask for help, you should start your own new topic describing the problem in as much detail as you can. Good luck.

RE: OFFICIAL Discussion for the Pros and Cons of Clones in the Market

Sparky I see what you're saying, but I don't see how it adds value to the topic. What we can understand from your post is that sand destroys RC cars, and it doesn't care if they're original or...

RE: OFFICIAL Discussion for the Pros and Cons of Clones in the Market

What do you mean? A clone can't become original. Name makes no difference. You said this in the other thread too and I don't understand what you are tryhing to say. IMEX and FS are clones, yes. And?

RE: OFFICIAL Discussion for the Pros and Cons of Clones in the Market

No mention of Smartech there, apart from the magic wheel. Anyway, back to topic please, this is the large scale forum. We all know that Smartech started in the business with clones, and now they've...

RE: OFFICIAL Discussion for the Pros and Cons of Clones in the Market

You have to roll with it and take the good with the bad. The large scale hobby is in it's biggest ever boom right now, so all is not lost. The clones are also partly responsible for this boom,...

RE: OFFICIAL Discussion for the Pros and Cons of Clones in the Market

Ah, I see what you mean (and again sorry for the late reply, lol). Yeh, not really the same thing as what I meant. What you mean is to a point where it makes an impact, I honestly don't think it's...

RE: OFFICIAL Discussion for the Pros and Cons of Clones in the Market

Sorry for late reply, never saw this post. Who said anything about sharing wealth though?? I said it made no impact, nothing about sharing.

RE: OFFICIAL Discussion for the Pros and Cons of Clones in the Market

RCU aren't pro clones, or against them. PERIOD. We are here to serve the RC community. If it has an antenna, we cover it, whether it's made in China, or on the frickin moon.

RE: OFFICIAL Discussion for the Pros and Cons of Clones in the Market

Also, I don't believe that the sales of a few king motors cars has any impact whatsoever on China's invasion plans for the West, or their overall economy. I mean, 1/5th scale is a niche market in any...

RE: OFFICIAL Discussion for the Pros and Cons of Clones in the Market

I couldn't care less, really. HPI can just make something else. They're not a struggling mom and pop shop. The HPI Baja SS will outsell the King Motors car 20 to 1 on any given sunday. I really don't...

RE: OFFICIAL Discussion for the Pros and Cons of Clones in the Market

Of course, no worries. ;)

But I don't understand what you're getting at, I don't see how the clones are going to cost HPI jobs. Sorry, you are simply taking this way too far, to it's extreme. If...

RE: OFFICIAL Discussion for the Pros and Cons of Clones in the Market

Some legal clarification... It's not illegal in any way, outside the countries in which HPI holds a patent. By that token, all computers are IBM clones (as they were once referred to) and all cars...

RE: OFFICIAL Discussion for the Pros and Cons of Clones in the Market

All the MCDs except the Baja 1000 have clones by FS racing, and they've even expanded on MCDs design, producing a monster truck based on the MCD 4wd chassis. A few people here are waiting for their...

RE: OFFICIAL Discussion for the Pros and Cons of Clones in the Market

By far the most popular are the HPI Baja 5b and the FG range (the originals which your firehammer is based on). PErsonally I have one of each, a Baja and an FG Monster Truck.

RE: OFFICIAL Discussion for the Pros and Cons of Clones in the Market

Wow! You musta been on the debating commitee. ;):D

Seriously though, simplistic as it is, this may be a relevant contribution.

OFFICIAL Discussion for the Pros and Cons of Clones in the Market

Since I locked the previous thread on this topic, as it simply got too heated, a couple of you contacted me stating that you would like to discuss the issue further.

I want to make it clear that...
