I think HPI will improve the plastic, at least I hope so.

Hmmm..

pardon me for the interuption. this just in.

the bandwagon has left.

i'm not concerned. i find it embarassing frankly.

perhaps the 710 will be your newest ray of sunshine

BUT, first i had to listen to months, no years of how serpent screwed you and you wouldn't ever buy antoher or beleive a word out of pieter's mouth, then the tc3 was the greatest and hpi was a disgrace, then hpi, ala r40, is the greatest again, now you might sell it. jump on the bandwagon dujour.

i still like my tc3, have no intention of selling it, having openly listed all my dislikes with the R40, which you told me not to. have always said i think i'm faster with my tc3. and, only bought an r40 to go to the worlds.

all this, not to mention the endless rants on first run cars and how you'll never buy another.

i hear xray is creating a new nitro car, its creating industry buzz and has all the latest technology.


hmmmmmmmmmmm.............am i wrong??


we now return to our regularly scheduled topic. the R40.

actually you did post my business in the 710 thread. and you posted yours. you hung me out there, and then jumped on the snake wagon, thanking all those at snake HQ you have cursed and left me flapping in the wind. in addition, everything i stated here came from previous posts. the vault has remained shut.

use it as a topic to discuss at the shop with the two wash women tomorrow.

um... R40 thread guys, R40 thread....

besides, we're just joking around with the bandwagon stuff. if no one supports these cars, there'll be no new stuff to look forward to.

oh yeah, i'm shocked to see that kawahara has not put out a bunch of stuff for the R40 like they did for the V One R and the MTX-2 and MTX-3. so i guess that means this car is perfect out of the box .

And I was actually going to get a R40 but damn,it seems the bandwagon has left,oh well.

But then again there are enough gullible people out there who follow the trends and become spokes people for the new car on the block blindly.

Something tells me there is still a "particular" gullible person out there who is waiting for a F1 project of some sorts !!!

Treky11 and Fastharry are funny. I have owned Snakes, NTC3s, Mugens, etc., and have found good and bad traits in all of them. What you choose to run it your personal preference. I ran out of anti-venom, so I dropped the Snake. The NTC3 was a well balanced car but was a pain to replace broken parts when needed. So, I stuck with the HPI and Mugen because I these cars have been the best runners for me. Jump from one car to another is your choice; must be nice to be rich enough to do that.

I don't think they take it too seriously...but you should pit next to them when they're racing! Too much fun.

I don't care what fastharry drives, as long as his keeps his r40 so I can beat him and treky11 at next years challenge I'm happy.

Contender had to steal my nistarter last year to try and keep me out of the main

I'll be there contender, with my R40.

I have a feeling we will be going to Europe for the worlds this year though. Hopefully if it is there it will be on one of those gorgeous euro tracks we here in the US only get see in mags.
