Very cool, I'm getting ready for shoulder surgery myself so I'll be home for at least 2-4 months - not looking forward to surgery but rebuilding a couple of old hpi cars.

I've had a disc removed from the base of my neck and I had bone removed from in my spinal cord canal , I've been off work now since May and still not sure when I'll be able to go back , you'll be fine Peter , at least you've got something to keep your mind off things while your recovering , the worst thing about sitting at home is having nothing to do , just don't push your self too much

Awesomeness man! The thing about HPI cars is that once you collect all the TC cars, roughly 15, you run out of motivation. Then, you start the infamous Yoke cars, moving along to Tamiyas. Then the buggies come into mind. And the monster trucks...then the 1/5th scales. Dayemmmm.

Please post a pic of your Roadstar, if you can. Loved that car.

That pan car was the only car I ran so much (ran it indoors on carpet and outdoor on asphalt) that I had to replace the chassis. Had to, it wore so thin on one edge that one of the battery cells would wobble. Great pan car.

Killer Pro, too!! Thanks for sharing!

My RoadStar one of my favorite HPI's.
This was the second rc kit that HPI released after the Super F1

^^ THAT - IS - AWESOME !!!

Thanks LAG, bringing back some memories there. That car was so freakin' awesome. And I know, I have a Super F1 - won't ever get rid of it. Had three and sold all but 1 way back when.

You ever want to unload that crappy RoadStar, pm me!

Again, thanks for posting that, it's a beauty.

Insane in the membrane, now I know who is hogging all the winning bids. Simply just can't be beat or sniped.
