Default HPI R40 Hara or HoBao GPX4 Pro

Hi

I am looking at two second hand cars at the moment. And i am having trouble deciding what to get... I think HPI is better racing heritage, but i know these cars have no more factory support

Thanks in advance

Both cars are not bad and also made in Taiwan. Just pick one you like most.

Hi,
I have raced a GPX-4 Pro on and off for a few years now and I think they are a very good car and I still use mine as my spare car......

Wouldnt recommend a car that has no parts support or anything coming soon. Your better off looking in the direction of a Serpent, Mugen, Kyosho, Xray or if you need something economical, Team Magic's G4JS version.

But if you want your question answered, in my opinion I would go with the HPI R40... always have seen it as the strongest heaviest car in the racing market.

GO TO YOUR LOCAL HOBBY SHOP AND SEE WHICH CAR IS EST SUPPORTED. THE ONE YOU CAN GET THE MOST PARTS WITH THAT IS THE CAR I WOULD GET.
