I'm running my veteq...and I picked up a kanai.......I raced off road at barnstormers in NY.....and run my veteq when I get a chance on sun mornings......but I have to admit..my first love is touring...

I absolutely love my tc3's...I think out of all my cars,they are the ones I really enjoy...

right now its cold in NJ.....I'm running rally at the barn..and thinking of adding a truck or buggy also(associated,of course)..but I have to admit,that xxx-4 looks sweet....

how do you feel about the HPI forum situation..good for their business?.......did you see the savage yet?...

ok. forget the hotbodies. ntc3, gt4, and kyosho v-one r. im more into the ntc3 or the gt4 for the price. the kyosho is kinda expensive cuz the kit is i think 260 + engine + electronics. thats kinda pushing my budget right now, but is it worth the extra money for it or does the ntc3 and the gt4 perform just as well for a beginner like me? and also is the gt4 worth the extra money over the ntc3? which do you guys prefer for a beginner?

Cool......yeah touring cars are FUN. It just came to point I wanted more.....speed, tunability, rush, and all that.

I think HPI don't really care about the forum anymore...I think they got a lot of headaches from it after awhile....at first they took out the Swap and Sell forums......then stopped........ I learned a lot from that sight.....made a lot of friends there too. But everything changes........I frequent this sight more.......ever since it was rctouring.com

what i like about the tc3 is the ease of maintaining theb car..everything lifts "UP"....on any of the belt cars,evrything gets split side to side

btw,I also own the impulse AND reflex...I prefer the tc3....I thinks its strong......it handles great..and I've seen newbies take the car(mine in fact).and drive like they were pro's......they soon sell those HPI's......

wat r u talking bout? the NTC3 and the gt4 are both kits aswell(unless ur talking bout the rtr ones, which u prolly are, and im prolly making a dumass out of my self rite now, lol) the v one RR is prolly the best pick out of the belt driven cars, it comes wit a centax clutch and a rear flating body mound, and is much like an onroad car.(in my opinoin) u can get the V one RR for $280overseas,a nd thats really cheap
i can see it now, wtf r u tlkaing bout asd? hes talking bout the rtr version!

- yes
- check out your racetrack and see which brand is popular. You need experienced racers to help you out .....go with what they are using so you can really learn from them.
