Well like many I was really into this truck when it was announced. Then it didn't show up and I doubted it ever would, then it did but I wanted the grey one and never saw it in stock anywhere. I browsed on here and noted that a used one may appear and sure enough on Ebay a month or so ago I found this grey one from someone who claimed to have lost the charger and never really driven it. Sure enough it showed up with a battery and no charger, no manual or anything just a truck with a battery and radio. I ordered a manual and played around until the battery died then I swapped it over to deans and 3s and played a bit but determined a new servo was in order. I put a reefs 555 in it and plan to see how it really does on a trip to New Orleans this week/end. Anyway, as per my usual I am documenting the progress of this truck here and hope to learn a bit from you all as well. I have high hopes that HPI parts will start to show up but I plan to look into the ascender mods for the front axles in the mean time as well as some wheels and tires and a battery relocate mod the bowhouse setup looks good. any input is more than welcome and I look forward to learning more about the HPI world separate from the axial world i have been living in.
