i have read a few good reviews about it but havent seen one myself, the only bad comment i heard was that the finish quality is not as good as you would find on a tamiya kit

be careful not to make mistake...

the 1st R2 link is to their 416MDF (available both as upgrade or full kit)

Fijon pic is of the TA05MDF (only available as upgrade kit for existing TA05)

they are 2 different cars both sold by Fijon also both available @ R2


the 416 clone is sold by R2, the 416MDF full kit would use parts from the clone afaik

ppl who have bought either clone set... well all the moving shafts etc aren't same
hi-standard metal as genuine Tamiya so you'll need to replace sooner not later.
Most ppl buy genuine Tamiya parts to replace them with.

if nobody's recognised it earlier, the spurgear holder is from HPI ProD (cloned).
Also the battery holder, definitely ProD shaped!! wink


btw i have the TA05MDF kit but with that of course all the drivetrain is genuine smile


In Japan new company called ENROUTE announced something similar as their JXR model.

check here:---> http://melbrc.org/vB/showthread.php?t=4419

No idea who copied whom hahahaha... their latest JXR003 looks a lot fancier & polished
but c'mon, its still using the same PooD clone battery holder and
full set of Tamiya(cloned) suspension arms.

tamiya clones have been around for ages......people buy them, but not hobbyists and racers...


Have a look at a TRF416 clone here

Enroute not that new, they've been around for a while, they made a name for themselves with their Berg axles for crawlers! If the JXR is build to the same standards as the berg axles, then that kit will be pretty indestructible very happy

More on the jxr here http://www.enroute.co.jp/english/jxr/

+ the R2/Fijon 416MDF is easier to order & probably a fraction of its price... wink
