Even if its back , it was last competitive in 2003....a lot of that came through the help of delta which has discontinued most all of its proceed parts.

But hay might as well strike while the iron is hot. If anyone wants a proceed kit with a huge lot of proceed parts. Im talking like a box full or stuff , some new in package , 3-4 chassis , tons of wheels. $750 takes it all. You could run forever on this package...im not kidding you , its like 2 book boxes full of stuff...with a garbage bag of tires , probably 30 tires or more.

LMK.

You know what's a amazing is that the HPI Proceed is priced $30.00 dollars more then the Mugen MRX-4R at a cost of $579.99... . But hey, it is a rare fossil within the RC World and would be consider a museum piece in a few short years...

Funny... I'll pass on the fossil, but I'm sure some folks out there still enjoys driving them... As for my 720, I took a 9 months off from driving since the birth of my Son... Looked at the car and thought outside the box for a couple of days... Tried a few setup changes that some West coast drivers didn't think was a good idea... Although they do drive different cars from the 720... I changed to a front diff... Made some roll center changes and upgraded to the adjustable ackerman servo saver along with a few other adjustments and my 720 has a completely different personnality now... I can attack the track from all angles... As before I was fighting the car on parts of the track at Crystal Park... Now I can attack it... I'm a bit rusty, but I'm able to drive the car better and alot faster now then before my 9 month layoff.. I just need more track time now... Now back the Proceed... Hey, there are better investments out there for someone wanting to get into 1/8 scale onroad... Better cars and for alot less money too...

How is that amazing, look at the hellfire, they think that piece of junk is worth $650 when you can buy a Jammin RTR for $100 less thats just how HPI does it.

For my two cents, I'd reccomend to stay away of it. It's discontineud and you just never know when HPI will pull the plug on replacement parts.
