Default WTB: Rare/Old HPI cars

*edit 10/9/11*

I am (with one exception) no longer looking for HPI cars, please see my post on page 6 for an explanation.

That exception: the HPI Road Star. If you have one you'd like to sell, please contact me.

Thanks.
--------------------------

Hey everyone,

As the title says, I'm a fan of classic and hard-to-find HPI cars. You can check my sig for a list of my current cars, and to get an idea of what I'm talking about. I'm looking for an interesting new car or two (or three, you know how it goes) so I thought I'd post an ad.

Things I'm looking for:

- Road Star 10GW
- Street Machine
- Super RS4 (electric)
- 300mm and 280mm bodies to fit Super chassis
- Older 190mm and 200mm bodies (Mercedes DTM, McLaren, F355, etc)
- Any other odds and ends! (HPI hats, shirts, banners, etc)

I'm not really looking for anything that's currently produced, as finding old stuff is half the fun. If you have something that's already in my sig don't let that deter you, as I'm not opposed to owning multiple nice examples!

PM works best for me. Thanks!

I have an RS4 nitro Mini with spare parts and 4 bodies, many upgrades and in very good condition - can be RTR or minus Tx / Rx. I'm looking at $275 complete or $225 without radio. I can send pictures and full information if interested.

If you could PM me that additional info I'd love to take a look at it, thank you.

Daily bump.

Default hpi nitro mini

i have a nitro mini rolling chassis that is practically brand new. if you looked at it you would think that it is brand new. The front belt and bearings are used but you wouldn't be able to tell. No scratches on the chassis and tires not glued yet. Never ran. Car comes with bearings, side belt tensioner, 2 3003 futaba servos, and a new unpainted honda civic body. No engine and exhaust. $150.00 shipped. I also have an all aluminum nitro mini for $600.00 shipped. i have never seen a nitro mini with more hop-ups as this one.

brings back memories of when hpi still made a great quality product not like today when the quality sucks. if i would have known i would be required to spend an extra 2k + on my baja 5bss just to keep parts from breaking trying to run it on teh local football field i would have stuck with the older stuff myself.

anyways, heres a bump for you hope you find what you are looking for.
