Your better off buying something that is well known. I've never heard of the HSP before so i can't judge that buggy. But, the question is, if you break it, can you find replacement parts easy? For this same price range I would suggest.


Way better quality and customer support. And parts are usually easy to come by.

That is the same exact buggy as a Redcat Hurricane. Comes from the same factory just called HSP in other countries other than the US. For the price you can get much better but they do hold up ok. I had one a long time ago. If you want more info on this buggy and are set on getting it check here out. http://www.plaig.com.au/phpbb/. They have there own forums and guys are really nice there. Have you seen a Caster Racing ZX1-R yet? They are really nice and have a thread here on RCU.
