what you are missing in my comment is that ALL THE BELT CARS SHARE 85% of the same chassis design/layout...there is nothing radically different between my R40 and the NT1 when you look at them - other than my obiviously purple vs the copper of the spring steel...and hell, look at the latest batch of electric TCs - they are all based off the design of the TRF415

you tell me what's so magically different with your NT1?? nothing...and I was just looking at an advertisement that was saying XRAY is not doing ANYTHING new for their nitro TC for 2008...well, other than including a free set of spring steel CVDs in the kit - nothing is being updated/redesigned...So i guess in your terms, that means the NT1 is being outdated ??

Yes, I would perfer HPI/HB release a TC with part support, not something that might run out in a year or 2...But either way, HPI most likely have such a large parts supply, that you got at least 1 maybe 2 years before parts are VERY scarce...You really need to worry when 3Racing stops selling R40 stuff - then you know the car is done


wait, rosco has an NT1?......then who cares what he has to say about the r40....


NT1........Another car I can beat this summer.....

Maybe we need to introduce ROSKO to WALLYEDMONDS. It seems that the two of them knows everything about any car. Even though they never owned any of them.

I can only imagine being a fly on the wall when they are busy talking about RC stuff......or wait..... why would I do something as dome as that.

Now you've done it. He is going to come back and tell you that all those cars are outdate, and that you won't wont get parts for them.

Next thing you know, he will say that you are not running enough droop on the car in front.

I have plenty of parts for those old cars.....


and I only run 1 mm of uptravel( front) in all my touring cars.......2 mm in back....


as outdated as those chassis are, there is a single speed chassis in there that placed in the a main at the 2oo3 hpi challenge......


depending on the type of track we have at the may challenge, if it's small enough, I'm going to get those cars ready and let a few friends drive them........


I guarantee they will be in the B main, possibly the A....

fastharry- you guys are right i guess ididnt look at it that way. i just really like hpi/hb products and i want one but unsure if they have something in the works or how it would be trying to get parts for the car. i got rid of my nt1 it was a good good but well kinda just wanted to go all out hb/hpi because in the past when i ran the pro 4 foam tire it was just the most awesome thing really like their products.


at the byrons i finished 6th in the a main might of finished second but stupid me never ran an hour main before and did a tire change on a sedan car so i lost to much time
