Hpi just got bought again in the last month or two. When RipMax bought them after the bankruptcy, pretty much failed. I’d have hard time recommending anything from them till it’s more known about the future.

Hellfires junk. Get a quality truck anywhere for a good price over something that was marketed for its looks 15 years ago. Today you could pick up a used truck or a new one online for bones cheap and it would kill the hellfire in every catagory especially performance and reliability, not to mention the hellfire is terrible to work on. I had one.

Just get a good current truggy, it will be worth it in the long run. The hellfire is not a good investment, parts alone will become more scarce.
