I have started some custom work on my HPI Firestorm. I have already had an accedent with it and broke the front bukkhead but I have built my own out of aluminim and a really nice bashplate from stainless steel and it looks great! I'll post pics and I'm sure it has only just begun.

ps. I work in a machine shop

HPI Firestorm, Nice! Post some pics. By the way how did you cut it out to the right size if it was aluminium? Is that why you said you work at a machine shop?

Hey, Prostock and drag cars! Thats what I like to see! I typed HPI Drag Car on eBay and it came up with one item. So I assume it is yours. It is a Sports 2 with a Mustang body. Looks mad and kool to. Can't wait to see the others! Especially the front wheel, that'll be amazing. Cya'z
