    RE: Is this Baja HPI or KING MOTORS?

    looks like a hpi with a few mods , but it could also be a rovan , rovan made orange colored parts too , the rest looks hpi except for the main chassis the color is questionable , hpi made a main chassis in black but that one kinda looks like its matt black . motor looks different at the top too could be a different motor , the spark plug boot looks too big and like its bent off to the side like a 36cc flowram engine has . shock tubes front and rear on the lower halves look discolored supposed to be a darker color . my guess this is a rovan baja and not an original hpi baja .

    How much does he want for it? If the price was low, would it matter if it's a HPI or a clone?

    Honestly, I've had both KM and HPI and had zero problems with either one. If the price is right then go for it.
