Default RE: Which cars/trucks would you NOT recommend, based on your experience?


ORIGINAL: Budget Monty

I have only ever purchased one car that I fully regretted and would not recommend. This is the HPI Brama 10B. The drivetrain is just made of peanut brittle, and is not upgradable. Plus it is a take off of the E10 chassis on-road car, which sucks because they put bigger tires on it, but did not change the gearing, and no optional spurs are available, so it simply can not be geared properly. I love HPI, but if they weren't going to spend the time to fix the few details that made the car garbage, they should have not shipped it.
I think they realized that, but not until it was too late. Now they have the Cyber 10B with is a MUCH better buggy.
