I tried finding the slipperential on the hobbypro site, even used the search function but no dice. Out of curiousity I googled slipperential on my iPhone, and that tcmodels site came up in the first 5 results, showing their price also. A low blow indeed. But that's china's R&D, recieve and duplicate.

Screw those Aholes, I just bought my Slipperential yesterday from Mike! You know they will cut corners and use cheaper materials, then when it fails who do you turn to! For my hard earned money I want the real deal and the support that goes with it!!!!!

I am working on a resolution - I did find the pertinent information and have my Copyright/Patent Attorney on the case. They ordered the original unit directly from me on October 15, 2009(less than 5 months to copy my years of work and R&D.
There is no question that this is a direct copy(even used the copyrighted name) and a direct infringement on my intellectual property.

Wow... You have to wonder if they actually expected to get away with this.

Mike, I am glad you are unleashing the hounds on them.

That sucks, but you knew it was going to happen. PdC has spoken how Chinese co's readily steal their designs. Hoping for a good asskicking.

I would probably remove that link so they don't get any more publicity... it is a shame that people can so easily ride off the sweat and blood of others.

It's a great product Mike I hope you get the exclusivity and patent you deserve.

WOW that sucks. Nothing is safe these days. I have to wonder if there really is anything that can be done to stop this considering all of the red tape involved with international laws and such. I wonder if contacting the Department of State and sharing this infringement would help any? I know they have a whole deaprtment that deals with counterfit stuff being made in foreign countries. Diplomacy is a key factor in allot of these situations with our so called allies. You know only the kids on TRX will buy them.


SUPERMAXX YOUR LIFE.

Well, in any case, it's good that pretty much every TRX product can't use the slipperential without some serious modification - and any enthusiast capable of that probably knows the difference and will buy the real deal from Mike.

Hey Mike,

Good luck with this. They ripped off our Revo conversion a while back, but there was nothing we could do. This is a little different since they actually copied a patent pending part. So hopefully they'll think twice about it in the future. The only way to combat this kind of stuff is to stay ahead of them on the design side of things. I'm sure the Slipperential won't be the last RC-Monster innovation. Keep your head up (I'm sure it's up and ready to kick some ass!).

The counterfeiters probably are counting on the fact that it would be far too expensive for most small business owners to get caught up in potentially fruitless litigation. I bet most small businesses just get tired of trying to fight an overseas battle with just high legal fees to show for it. Let's hope this ends well, but I have LONG since lost any respect, trust, or hope for the legal system.

As said as it is, i'm betting they rely on the fact that there is so much red tape and diplomatic bullshit for us to go through to have them repremanded, not too mention legal fees. It really sucks to see it happen and I know you have a whole RC-Monster nation behind you Mike!

Wow that's really low blow, 5 months? gees... at least you have hard evidence that they ordered one directly form you 5 months ago. I hope your lawyer can really kick there a$$e$ to the curb. They don't know who there messing with, you've been preparing for this day
