I think it means that nova racer (who actually runs an OS not a Novarossi engine ) needs to be nice. No need to be insulting nova.

AMGRacer: I hear you and agree. Frank is a nice guy and was always willing to help years ago when I ran my Pro and Pro2. Pro was stock, Pro2 had a few mods. The money pit is my "super nitro"!!!!!!!! I call this the metal monster. to many $$$ to talk about. I also have a MTX-2 Prospec with negitive diff & carbon deck and a box stock Xray T1. Both run circles around the super........ Lessons learned!

That's true.

There's a big difference between stating one's opinion about a car and actually insulting a company or company representative.

I think that for every person you'll find who says "HPI sucks!" you will also find one who says "Losi sucks!" or "Associated sucks!" or "Yokomo sucks!"

(or "Ford/Dodge/Chevy sucks!" and so on...)

OK, no offense taken I just wanted a little clarification on what was meant. You know how the 'net is - you never know how to take something that's typed. There's no inferring anything, it's all in the words (and smilies) that are used.

Anyway, thanks you guys for thinking I am a decent guy, I try to be.

What I do know is that the car is truly a prototype (remember the XXXS was originally graphite and aluminum and ran for several months before production, and it went through four different versions) and we do not know yet if it will go into production. There are several guys running it around the world and like many prototype cars it uses some parts off currently produced cars just to save time and tooling costs. We'll see what happens after the Worlds, I'm sure we won't be the only ones there with a new/modified car.

Frank, you suck!!! hahahah What's up buddy???

Frank is a good guy. Known him for a long while. He even took care of me in my Pro2 days. IMO, the Pro2 was the best car HPI every put out. That thing was just awesome.

So, Franko....when you coming back down to SoCal???
