    I would "ASSUME" like most other manufacturing in the US, Castle motors are a product of China. I could be wrong as not everyone outsources. Most do.

    From my experience with counterfeit Chinese goods, and that is a lot, The counterfeits are probably ran on the same production lines as the real thing. The line is either ran off-hours or are they are rejects being resold as new.

    This is probably the result of the Chinese manufacturer that was contracted by Castle Creations getting greedy and selling some to the public before they were supposed to go to Castle.

    I did see on Ebay, a seller from China with a butt load of castle brushless motors for sale.

    yup, ive seen them too. remember, castle doesn't have any sellers in china. like I said, though, we should test one out and see how it does compared to a authentic castle.( ill do it, but not for awhile)
