You do know that Exceed is a re-badged HSP. Exceed, Himoto, HSP, BSD, LRP, Maverick and another 10 other names are all OEM of the same car design.
@OP, if the HSP is the best you can afford, then buy it and have fun, its not a bad car by design, it just uses bad plastics in certain places. As you break things, replace them with better quality parts, a good LHS will be able to get you in parts for that car that use better plastics than the original. The ESC will prolly die too in the first month or so, unless your lucky and get a good one.
If you can afford better, get better, i have a couple of LRP chassis of the same design as theflying fish, and i have not broken a single thing and thats running in 10.5T on road and a 8.5T drift setup.
