    Since the R4 team stopped making R4's, where is ShopTemp getting their "real" R4's?

    Simply put, the R4's at shoptemp are 1:1 clones meaning they are exactly the same but made by a different company/person.

    Perhaps one of the clone manufacturers decided to make an identical copy (rather than a bogus enhanced version) after it became common knowledge that the only 'real' R4 is the original?

    Which means that they are not real R4s.

    Nobody said they were. They're identical copies made by a different manufacturer.

    So if I follow your concept, if I buy some waffles, then ask a very precise recipe, take the same ingredients, but make them by my self, that some 'fake' waffles ?

    No, you have an identical waffle made by a different manufacturer. [​IMG]

    There are NO original R4s being produced and have not been for a LONG time. The original team has long since abandoned the cart.

    The R4s ShopTemp supply are 1:1 R4s as good as the original and you will find nothing better anywhere else despite what any store will have you believe.

    Also, ShopTemp's R4's are confirmed to be working with Wood. (The original $6 R4 that is)
