Brand confusion: MARIU-OEM vs HL Tiger 1

I did some forum searches but didn't get any hits so:

Can someone clarify for me if a MARIU-OEM is the same as the HL Tiger 1 or is it a different animal?
http://www.zhobby.com/huma1getiirc.html

Regardless - does anyone have experience with the MARIU-OEM brand? Is it at least reasonably reliable?

Are there any compatible aftermarket parts to improve performance and reliability?

The price point makes it an attractive entry level tank but if it's going to break down during every run, I'd rather save my money for something more expensive I don't have to constantly repair. :-)

Thanks,

-A

Its the non proportional drive Heng Long tank! No sounds and the speed is stop and fast! Believe me get the Smoke and Version, for a few bucks more you get a better radio, expandiable electonics, proprtional drive, and if your lucky or buy from one of us guys who check their tanks before we sell then you will get a working smoker unit!

Thanks for the clarification. I'll have to educate myself further before I do any actual shopping. :-)
