HPI MT2 18ss

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I am fairly new to this hobby, I am a rc plane guy but have had a rc truck last year. But I am looking into getting another. I was thinking the HPI MT2 18ss kit and building over the winter. What are your takes on this truck? I am looking to do just some regular bashing with a decent amount of speed.

I appreciate your input!

The 18ss will be a fun kit to build over the winter

depending on how hard you want to bash, you might want to take a look at HPI's SAVAGE 4.6 KIT.....

the 18ss is a 1/10
the Savage is a 1/8....some say its the toughest RC Truck ever built

or...if you like HPI and like the 18ss........maybe wait till the new HPI HELLFIRE is in stores,,,although its RTR......its is a 1/8 Truggy...eeirily simlar to the 1/10 18ss

HPI is a solid choice
