Default HPI RTR Nitro RS4 MT 2

Well, I couldn't find much info on the truck, and I love the look of it! It's a big stadium truck which is what I want, and it has 4wd! Do you think the truck is reliable? What in the truck breaks? What do i need to upgrade?

I have the origional nitro MT. I love it!!

I have looked at the MT2 everytime I go into the hobby shop. It looks very nice! Should be as reliable as any other HPI product(very).

I love mine becuase the MT's are low enough to be capiable of great handling on road (I love to drift, almost more than drive off road) But the trucks have enough clearance to be great bashers. They can't handle anything close to what some tmaxxs and savages can but then again they weren't designed to be able to take that amount of abuse.

If you like crisp handling with lots of versitility then you would probably like the NMT. (or MT2)

I dont know you guys (I know its improper grammar) budget but I personally would check out ebay for some nice NMTs. although buying new is always a thrill within itself.

since your new, I would like to inform you (with no hard feelings or bitterness) that CAPS LOCK letters is read as yelling. If you wouldn't mind taping the key and writing in lower case, it would be much appriciated.

Thanks.

Back on topic (sort of)

How do you like your T maxx's handling vs the NMT ??? I find I hate driving my friends T maxx. I just like better, more crisp responsive handling.
Got any hop ups in either of them?

The rush is 2WD and the MT2 is 4WD. The HPI website has videos of the trucks.

I would get the MT2 over the rush just because I enjoy 4WD more, but I haven't driven the rush so I can't give a proper opinion on this.
