hmm...one grief, if my eyes are correct. Looks like on the HPI site that the shocks are the plastic threaded shocks, I could be wrong. BUT if they are, it's a little disapointing considering the other "pro" cars come with threaded aluminum and most likely the price and design will reflect the "pro" status.

Other than that everything looks pretty nice.

the whole layout look ugly.
mtx3 looks better.
But you will never know the perfomance.

I hope HPI can again make hopup to turn this car in to a Solid Beauty Beast.

heres the part I like..







that car is LOW .............



also,look at the std features..the car is coming with universals std...NOT dogbones....and the graphite top deck.....


also..and this a great feature...

the car will use the STD 5 pack nicad cells........The Impulse and Mugen both use the small AAA packs...around 700 mah....and both have trouble using digital servos during a long main...
