Default RACE READY HPI Vorza Flux 1/8th Scale Buggy with Hop-ups

I'm listing my 1 year old HPI Vorza Flux with electronics (stock high torque servo and stock radio), Maxamps hard case battery, custom body, wheels and tires and hop-ups.

The buggy comes in full race trim with a ton of research and testing behind the current setup. The shock oil, springs and differential grease have all been changed out based on my custom setup chart (see below). The ride height, droop, camber and toe have also been set based on my custom setup chart (see below). It has been meticulously cleaned after each race.

This buggy is an animal, it can be bashed or raced; on road or off-road, fields, tracks, pavement, etc.
This buggy has gotten plenty of praise and great reviews in the RC Magazines and in the forums. This particular Vorza was in RC Car Magazine under the readers rides over this past summer!

Upgrades:
DE Racing Skid Plates (with extras)
Full Spring Kit
Captured Hinge Pins
Aluminum Servo Arm
Pro-Line White High Downforce Performance 1/8 Wing Kit
Kyosho closed end wheel nuts
Pro-line Wheels / Caliber M3 Tires
Pro-line Wheels / AKA City Block Tires
Stock Wheels / Bashing Tires

Body:
Kyosho MP9 with custom professional paint
HPI Vorza Flux 1/8 E-Buggy Thread

Battery:
Maxamps Hard Case ROAR Approved 5250 4s 14.8V battery
http://www.maxamps.com/Lipo-5250HC-148-Vorza-Pack.htm
This battery has been extremely cared for, charged completely come race day, used in 2 heats then put right into store mode

Please send me a PM if you decide to part this out at all... I would be interested in the body/wing, wheels/tires, some of the upgrade parts.

Nice looking ride though. Where was the custom body painted? (I think you mentioned you sent it out in your thread?).

Oh, and +1 for the Vorza, I love mine...

Jim Myers from Winning Edge Designs in Florida painted the MP9 body for me after I trimmed it.

Great, thanks... oh, also interested in the lipo if you'll sell that by itself (forgot to put that in the mail).

I'm only looking to sell this as a package deal. I also have a charger too that I may consider adding in for a little higher price.

If I decide to part it out you are first on the list but that will be a while with the holidays coming up.

Curious as to the reason for sale? Getting another kit or out of the hobby? Always enjoyed your posts in the vorza thread.

Thank you, I appreciate that comment

For now "taking a break" is more accurate, we're ramping up for our first child and I have several things I have to get squared away before my wife is out of work

I'm still staying subscribed to this thread and watching over the questions though.

Default Happy Trails

Iíve been out of commission for a while since my last post where I bashed up my Vorza pretty bad, but Iím back in and just about done with the rebuild and getting ready to post new pictures and I must say that Iím sad to see some of my original comrades like Ryan and Ben check out on the Vorza. Good luck to you both, itís been fun.

I know it's been a great time together since this thread opened.
I sold my Vorza to a friend at the local club so it will still stay "in the family".

I decided to opt out of 1/8th scale since our club track is a tad too small.
We ordered a Slash 4x4 Platinum with a ton of RPM upgrade parts, tires, wheels, etc. I plan on building a more realistic short course truck for bashing and racing. All in all, I find the SC trucks more interesting and fun to bounce around on the track. I found myself getting frustrated more than anything with the Vorza and my setups.
