Default HPI Hellfire SS Kit Build & Long Term Review

I just bought a Hellfire SS kit today... just couldn't take the curiosity of all this controversy over whether or not the thing is good or bad... I personally like HPI products for the most part. I've always had good luck with HPI's "SS" kits, although, the RTR versions I've owned have been pretty bad for breaking.

So... I'll document the build, and the subsequent running of the kit... and will do a running review of the Hellfire SS kit for ya'all as I race it at our outdoor track in Grande Prairie (Alberta, Canada) this summer!

If no one tells her what I'm doing with her kitchen table... then she won't know... and I won't get in trouble... so SHHHHHH! (for those of you who don't know "I'llBreakThat"... otherwise known as "Jay" is a blabbermouth!)

Hahahaha! Are we getting off topic already??? LOL!

Update... I just ordered an Airtronics 94758 from Tower for the Hellfire. I think that .06s transit time and 115 oz in of torque will wiggle the front wheels back and forth fast enough for me!

I wont tell her (unless i talk in my sleep) And by the way I am quite interested in hearing about the build and the acctual performance of a truggy built by Horse Poopi Incorporated. Main thing is they dont have anything that they developed it from unlike every other truggy out there.
