Default Ito

So I just have to share this.... I attend Bending Corners raceways every Saturday, and I've become used to having top HPI drivers racing there and picking there brains with every imaginable question... Also having Hiro who does R&D for Hot Bodies there all the time... I have nothing but great things to say about HPI and how they really support the drivers in every way... so anyways , yesterday I approached Hiro with questions on my HPI Super F1... He introduced me to Ito who was pitting with him... Now some of you might already know this but I didn't... Ito actually designed the Super F1... Now how cool is that ? I was blown away... I was happy to find out he will be there next Saturday so I can properly pick his mind on the car

Great meeting you last Saturday... I hope you were able to get your front end dropped after we spoke...

hopefully I'll get my car on the track sometime soon too... later
