Not a lot of info in this post; sorry.
There's a whole slew of them, (usually with name variants of Dux, Thunderdux, X-cat, Advanced Cat, X-treme, Sea Wolf, Sea Eagle etc...) which are mostly manufactured in Asia with US or Canadian branding. Generally not considered to be sturdy enough to hold up to the demands of racing. It is best get a genuine South African built brand (Gemini-Evo (zapcat), Ceasar (thundercat), Aquarius, I think there are one or other SA manufacturers).
