the reason the REAL baja is priced higher is to cover all their costs on creating the Baja. All the Research and Development costs. the clones did none of that whatsoever. they just stole the plans and built it in no time then are selling them for halfprice because they dont have much money invested into the company. HPI needs to cover thier expenses plus make money.

In any case, i will personally spend the extra money on whomever did the R&D because they deserve the money. i bought my SS and it was perfect. i didnt have one single problem. i wonder how Kingmotor's SS clone will be.

Intresting thanks! So the tyres are a copy of the original dirtbusters and the wheels are a copy of the 2nd revision wheels with the extra webbing.

They are using the image without permission. It is the TGN Baja, it is the real deal with just about every upgrade available on it, and it is for sale.

And that should tell you a little bit about how these Chinese manufactures work, they even fraudulently use pictures of cars they have no chance in hell of replicating to get people to buy their counterfeit crap. Now thats a company I want to do business with [:'(]
