I have a Yokomo GT4 Pro with Wolf chassis in great condition. Is that considered classic? I'd sell her for the right price. I'll upload some pics if you guys say shes a classic lol...

Wanabrc... what are you gonna do with that beast. I bet it would look awsome with some new tires and a good bath.

RC cars have feelings too... a little love goes a long way

You got it! I've got a couple of HPI Super F1s that I bought from a member here.



This one's set up for 200mm bodies. Very quick





This one's all-new parts





Compared to the Formula 10





Had a Pro 2 for about a week, just sold it



And while it's not vintage, it's pretty rare: HPI Pro-D. Only ever sold in Japan





And I have an RS4 Rally in the mail!

I didnt know HPI made F1 cars... so kewl. I have an RS4 too... absolutely love that car. Smooth, easy to handle and Freakin Bulletproof.

I was messin around with it in a parking lot and I didnt see the 2000 pound car behind me with the little old lady behind the wheel... She RAN OVER my RS4!!! My heart stopped untill I pulled the trigger out of reflex and it kept going. All I needed was a new body

The spur gear was imprinted on the body from the pressure... beleive it or not!

That's ridiculous! Yeah, the Super F1 is actually the first HPI car ever made. Most people don't know that they ever existed, I know that it took me a while to learn about them as well!
