Yeah, I agree that it is a money pit. But it's also what makes it fun at the same time. Some hop ups are just for bling, and some are essential (cva dampers/spring sets are all you really need). The...

Like with many competition, there needs to be some kind of charismatic idol figure. For me, it was Masami back in the days. Each brand needs a "hero/champion", and that's just part of marketing imo....

Kinda makes you wonder what all those "updates/optimization" did for the latest car when someone with a RC10/MP777 shows up and finishes on podium:tire:

Man, it'd take an act of congress to get anything like those here. Even if it did, some of the funds will probably be siphoned into someone's pocket.:lol::cry:

You're right, it was a magical time for a kid in third grade and walking into an RC store. Thirty somewhat years later, I still get that nostalgia feeling. I guess you need to operate both online and...

No one here knows the answer, but I think part of it is that the pros are so used to the old setup that they don't want to jump out of their comfort zone. The front end changes have a big impact to...

I noticed that most of the pros switched back too. Perhaps the combination of the decreased kickup and higher roll center makes the car too twitchy on smooth high speed tracks they mostly run on.

Nice package and all, but I feel a better name for this is "deluxe" edition than V2. Nothing really "new" on the car.

Either way, hope HB got out of their distribution death spiral.
