I suppose that HPI is just some company that copies other peoples' designs, eh? more to the point, the Firestorm was probably in the late stages of development when the GT2 came out, so any resemblance to IT is either completely coincidental, or you just can't tell the differences between two different stadium trucks.
He he..... I bet that is HPI's story anyway. After building a GT2 a couple of months ago, I must say they are extremely close to each other in design and layout. There was more going on here than coincidence.

Oops, I thought he meant the Rush to the Evo.

Is the engine any better then the 18SS? Would not take a whole lot to make it better. I do believe I know why tattguy12 got rid of his other race buddies of his influenced him not the truck. Personally I think it is going to be a good racer.

They built a new track in a bad place and with the weather we have had it has been under water most of the time. I just ordered some parts for my 1 to 1 car and going to get it in shape to go around Georgia to other tracks. The next closes one is about 60 miles one way. In the last 2 or 3 months I might have burned a half a gallon. When I go to the track I normally burn that much each week.
