yes i think youve got the idea corvettecrazy

if you want to race and be competitive against the top touring cars it is much easier to do if you have the same kind of car as the competition

if everyone you will race against uses hpi cars then you wouldnt be at a disadvantage

but if everyone else is racing with mtx-3s, 705s, v1rs, reflexs, and ntc3s you would have a hard time being competitive with a hpi

at the races i go to most racers outside novice class have the mugens, serpents, and associateds so i wouldnt consider buying a hpi

and most racers even in novice class move up to a better car than hpi after they see them run

also hpi cars have so many available hopups sinking a ton of money into them is too easy

unfortunately with my kids birthday and everything else going on i wasnt able to take advantage of the almost somewhat decent weather we had and already lost

maybe if i get really lucky i can get to run richmond this weekend but i doubt it

i think my mtx-3 is rusting away in the basement


i wonder if i could beat josh cyrul if he ran hpi and raced at my local track

naah
