Default Hpi Bashing


You really can't blame HPI for removing the old forum. It just was not in their best interest to keep it the way it was. However I'm sure Trinity has PLENTY or negative posts on their site. BUT do you ever see them? NOT. Trinity surely goes to great lengths to keep the public from seeing them. HPI just did it a different way.

What I do blame HPI for is knowingly ignoring MAJOR flaws with their products and turning a deaf ear to the publics complaints and needs. (like offering a Nitro PRO, sloppy parts fit in ALL of it's kits, Etc.)

I love my Pro-3. It has been very good to me so far and I love being the underdog against everyone else's Cars. AND I have yet to change the Stock "Flexable" Chassis or add an Upper Deck.

My Super Nitro has been fun and is plaged with the suspension slop, (shims fixed it) But the class is waining so it's sits unused for the past 3-4 months. (NOT HPI's fault)

My HPI Nitro-2 brought me into R/C and with all of it's shortcomings served me well for 2-1/2 yrs, but even in Racer2 form the car is not competitive with all of the other cars out on the market (same goes for the Nitro-3)

Well I've said enough and as you can see I am NOT an HPI hater.
