HPI Hellfire: Is it worth it?
Last summer, a friend of mine gave me an old HPI Hellfire x 4.6HO. It wasn't working, so as a challenge I dropped a few bucks to see if I could get her up and running.
I played with it for a few tanks until I finally had no pinch in the cylinder (not much to begin with anyways).
I ended up getting a new cylinder/set and a carb rebuild kit. I was also planning on upgrading to a 2.4GHz radio, until I starting wondering if I was dumping too much $$$ into a discontinued model with diminishing spare parts.
What do you all think? I don't race or anything. I just like driving it around parking lots, etc. by myself. Since I'm a bit of an aggressive driver, I don't want break anything discontinued.
Although my low speed needle is ok, I did notice it is no longer readily available...for example
