Here is my race damaged Pegasus Mustang from parking lot racing yesterday. Couldn't help but smile as my car looked like a real battle scarred VTA car. Even with the damage I only lost the race by less than .3 seconds.

If you heat that with a heat gun or a good hair dryer it will pretty much go back to normal only to run again

So Andy, another week has gone by and we are still waiting for you or someone at HPI to tell us what the other two VTA bodies are!

Please reply!

What is thatsupposed to mean?!! What about those 2 new VTA bodies you teased us all about weeks and weeks ago?

Why does HPI continue to play the corporate "head games" with it's customers and the public in general?

He was acknowledging he is here. Why don't people stop asking about the bodies being released and let it happen? I don't think the decision is his, HPI surely has a release date that Andy is waiting for. I will agree that I don't think teasing people was the correct thing to do for HPI, but jesus guys, do you think begging to see the bodies is going to make it come any faster?

/rant over.

I don't believe in being "politically correct"; and you are right; HPI, AndyH, or whoever, never should have teased us with these bodies if they were unwilling to show them! Very unprofessional! I know what I'm talking about because I myself am a professional sales and marketing rep, and that is something you don't do!

I'm not begging HPI to do anything; I'm asking that they do what's right here!
Also, I'm not going to back off or apologize for calling them on this. That is a big part of the problems we have in America these days; everyone is afraid to say what they think, they prefer to be "politically correct" and allow "Corporate America" to treat us all like crap. It's no wonder the country is in the mess it's in; we the people just let them get away with it! This thing with HPI is only a small example of what I'm getting at. Instead of telling me to back off, you and others should be joining me.

So, back to you AndyH; any response?

just chill the hell out..I've read your posts in the HPI F10 thread - and you've pestered the crap outta HPI...why should we join you?? we all know the bodies will be available when they are allowed - and not everyone needs to have the 'latest and greatest'

so its wrong when Hollywood releases that 2 min trailer for the next super hot movie 6 months in advance??

Andy has been damn good to us over here letting us know things just before or as they become pubic knowledge - so there's gotta be a reason why we don't know more about them at this point...

did you ever stop and think it may be outta HPI's hands about if/when the info can be released? oh like say, the licensee because maybe, just maybe, they are still negotiating the rights to release the bodies?
