Thats a nice attitude of a 'team driver'.... I'll bet you need 3 hotbodies in one season to keep up with the Red Army

I wonder if the battery tray mod made a big difference? That might become a running change.

Actually, I would think they could make a new buggy with the battery forward like Tebo and King both run.

really wheres the "attitude"? to be honest I change out my cars every few mths just because I get a good deal on them so why not, do I need a new car no but why not? and for $900.00 it better last me 2 seasons and repair its self if its broken All kiding aside I just do not see the need/reason they are so high priced. but if people will buy them then I guess they will stay that way

Don't let the words "team driver" fool you. With HB anyone and everyone is a "team driver". IE a way for them to make money on people that are convinced they're getting a bargain with a 50% off retail price deal. Infantry driver = easy way to make money.

I agree with you though! I would never advertise myself as a team driver and act the way some of these guys do on here. Not singling anyone out. Just a general statement regarding the HB infantry team.

If hara drove a kyosho he would walk away from everybody. The kyosho is the better car he makes the HB buggy look better than it is. Look at some of the guys that left kyosho for serpent in onroad this they are not as fast with the other cars as they were with the kyosho. Fact of the matter is kyosho produces results the dominate in onroad and offroad nitro the number of world championships don't lie. And people keep speaking out about how expensive the kyosho cars are, you don't have to buy but if you can afford it have at it. Like alway say corvettes are wonderful cars but it's not a lambo. Go team red!!!!!! As with any thing in life you get what you paid for nice things cost money!!!!!!!
