To take this event to another level Scottsdale RC Speedway has decided to give all the Short Course racers that enter the series race this Saturday a $10.00 Race certificate that can be used for club races for the month of June. Not only are you entering to race this great series but you will get a discount next time you want to race at SRS.
You guys are AWESOME!

I don't know what it is, I was wondering the same thing. I don't think HPI has really said what it's made out of, other than don't case jumps or hit a curb.

Give me some feedback, I know I'm not the best driver and I don't take it serious but I would like to keep my junk in one piece

Here are some photos;









That thing is a Turd. Scrap it and get a SC10

Bizarre. The material really surprises me.

Good luck to all on the rest of the series I am out! Getting my t4 built and ready to race!!!
So, a question if you don't mind. Unimpressed with what when you raced?

This is the responce I got from hpi,
"We will not be able to warranty this item due to the fact that it seems to be crash damage. You must remember that this car is meant for track use specifically and the plastic is much stiffer. If you have any other questions or concerns feel free to contact me."

So hey Jason, it looks like I'll be needing that chassis. Can you bring me the black RTR chassis please?


So, in the grand scheme of things..... if you buy an ESE you can NOT, 1) case a jump 2) hit curbs/piping 3) Crash

Ya no problem. I'll have them out there on saturday. If you could just take off the old chassis and bring it with you. We will probably be there around 1 or 2 so plenty of time to get it going for the races. Let me know if you need any other parts that you broke. I probably have them in either white or black.
