Clone:Chinese electric Mustang F16 is not what you’re expecting
 
This Chinese electric Mustang F16 is not what you


This Chinese electric Mustang F16 is not what you’re expecting


http://l1.yimg.com/bt/api/res/1.2/jt...jpg_011200.jpg

his is Yema Auto's new electric car, the Mustang F16 and clearly, it's not a Mustang as you think of it. It's an Audi. No, wait, it's not an Audi. What is this thing?

Underneath the A4-ripoff body you'll find the skeleton of an Austin Maestro (a compact hatchback made in the 80s and 90s). The interior apes Subaru Legacy because Yema Auto makes clones of the Subaru Forester.

If you happen to care about the specs of this Mustang F16, it supposedly has an 80 horsepower electric motor with a top speed of 68 mph and a range of 162 miles.

Makes the V-6 Mustang suddenly seem quite macho, doesn't it?

can't wait for the F22 version to come out

...and when it gets hit it crumples around the occupants like an aluminum soda can.
Chinese cars see crash worthiness and occupant safety as an afterthought.

China and most of what is produced there is a Potemkin Village writ large.

Fuck them. An entire culture that's built around stealing ideas from everyone else.

Meh, it'll catch up to them. It already is.

Well considering alot of craftsman tools are made in china now as well that is a weak argument about the torque wrench. Not everyone can afford Snap On, Matco etc.

You can afford Snap-on, MAC, Matco & etc!

Buy them on ebay & at many tool flea markets that are around this area at any given time of the year. Tool trucks will also sell used tech/mechanic grade tools they've had to reposses to reconcile their accounts.

There is no excuse for anyone to have to buy shitty chinese tools that don't hold up. Example.... There is a guy in Frederick who sells used Snap-on, Mac, Matco, Proto, Blackhawk, & etc at very affordable prices, 1/3 to 1/2 the price of new list.

The biggest hint.... Get on your motorcycle and ride to car, tractor, & steam shoes up by Baltimore, Frederick, & southern PA. High quality tools for pennies on the dollar out the wazzoo in the flea markets there.

If you don't go to tractor shows, you should.

Then the Bonus! Your purchase will hold its value, and you can resell at a later time if you have to and get your $$ back as long as you maintained & did not destroy your purchase.

Try selling you harbor fright shit tools trash for what you paid for it. You'll be lucky to get 20% back on the dollars you spent.

BTW.... Craftsman tools after about 1995/2000-ish are generally garbage. Older Craftsman is very good quality. New stuff... highly questionable.

I would be cautious about buying tools on Ebay and some flea / open air markets (particularly the ones that seem to cater to Central Americans & Immigrants).
There are a slew of Chinese counterfeits in those channels.

Off topic, but the same caution applies Golf clubs. Callaway and Taylormade being the most counterfeited brands.

morsetaper2 December 15, 2012 10:45 AM

Yea, ebay is always risky. But analyzing feedback and knowing what to pay makes it actually not very risky. I actually bought some testing equipment for my work on ebay.

Flea markets are a gamble as well. But mechanics tools are pretty easy to tell if somethings wrong. I would be very leary of buying anything electric if I couldn't test it at a flea market. You've got no recourse back to the seller.

I bought a Milwaukee Sawzall on ebay. It was ugly, beat to hell, but I needed one and I put a corresponding low bid at it and it arrived just like it looked. Still works fine years later.

2nd weekend in March there is a good one in Damascus. 2013 date is not posted yet however, here is March 2012 listing...

Potomac Antique Tools and Industries Association, Inc. (PATINA)

There is a huge tool flea market going on on in April in York PA at Cabin Fever Expo. Mostly metalworking/machinist stuff. But tools of all different kinds...

Cabin Fever Expo

And in Lorton in the Fall there is a smaller machinists tool flea market...

Had to dig for the info but found his card...

Frederick, MD

Been a bunch of years since I bought anything from him. But I just talked to him. He's still doing it but less than he used to. Says he is decently stocked w/ metric mechanics tools.

Everything about this car is lulz

vonstallin December 17, 2012 09:15 AM

Just brought a Chinbo...Chinese Knock off Brembo....
so far...garbage.

I just got it to check it out...$28 shipped.

I have allot of the Chinese knock offs that I test out. I have a friend who is ex Chinese racer and owner of a motorcycle shop and manufacture in China. He sends me allot of free shit to test out. Most times I just pay for shipping.
