for equal money what would you buy, a used Hellfire RTR or a used Mugen MBX5T Prospec......... you cannot tell me the Hellfire is better then the Mugen, they are night and day different, i owned both as well.....

Maximo, you didn't offer me any advice. Only advice you said to me was, "Don't buy it, it's a POS." Don't come and call me an ignorant ass when all I asked for were the Pro's and Con's in the first place.

Once again Did I ever say that..that would be a big NO..The only thing that I have ever said is that the Hellfire was not as bad as everyone has made it out to be..that's it..read into whatever you want to but the facts are I never said it was better than a Mugen..but I did say it's on the same level as the TT ST1 and Hyper ST....you even quoted what I had said..did you read what i wrote..

Dude, just buy the damn hellfire. There are 10 or so knowledgable rc guys on hear telling you to go and buy something wirth having and you are just finding excuses to make yourself want the hellfire more. That is why your an ignorant A$$. Buy it and learn the hard way like the guys who are telling you to get a good car have already.

It's a decent truggy that got a bad rap because of no factroy support. That 99% of poeple who say what they say NEVER even had one or even drove one in the first place. There are so many internet experts out there. But they do this on everything because what they read somewhere else or what a friend said.

I don't care what r/c brand you have if you can't drive it won't do you any good.

I had both, Hyper ST and Hellfire.... NO CONTEST..Hyper ST mops up the Hellfire and is much more durable ! seriously dude the Hyper carves up the HF on a track.....

Anyways this kid is paying as much for a used Hellfire RTR as he could have bought a used Mugen MBX5T Prospec for.... I was just trying to help him make a wiser decision, but he has already made up his mind that the Hellfire is the better bet.... LOL

We have all owned and driven a HF....it is the lowest of the low on the Truggy totem pole ! drive a MBX5T, CRT, RC8T,X2 CRT,Hyper ST, Losi 8T, ST-RR,XT8 then come back and tell us how great the HF really is....

we have all told you the Pro's and cons, you just chose to close your ears to what were saying...why did you bother making this post if you didnt want to hear the truth ? anyways good luck and be ready to learn the hard way bro ! I am done talking in this thread, your far to ignorant to be worth trying to help..... I want you to get the Hellfire now, I truly do ! you deserve a Hellfire, you earned it IMO !

Why say this in the first place? He doesnt have to prove anything to you about him owning a hellfire.

Would some video's do ?

http://video.google.ca/videoplay?doc...85989159158821

I have 2 more videos if this doesn't do for ya.... As I say the HF is not contest to the Hyper ST.... Hyper is tougher, and turns much better.....I see you trashing the Hyper all over the forums and it amazes me your sticking up for the HF, which is the most inferior Truggy ever built.... You must have a sweet spot for the HF that blinds you of the truth... As for being a hater, yes I hate the HF as it sucks and doesn't deserve any praise..
