Default Hot Bodies Lighning VS. GS Storm

which do you all like better? I have the option of trading for one or the other. but I'm not sure which one I like better. the Lightning will cost me quite a bit more in the trade so I would rather do the storm if they are comparable truggys. what are your opinions of the two?

Default RE: Hot Bodies Lighning VS. GS Storm

If it's the older storm I would say the HB would be a better choice due to it's at least a newer design (not by much..) The storm used axle extenders (if it's the older model) on buggy arms, The storm is tough and they seem to work for bashing, I would be somewhat concerned about parts availability on the GS, The Lightning is not a bad truggy and you can still get parts and their are some parts that interchange with the Kyosho ST-R (front and rear hubs) at some point HB is going to replace the LSP with a version of their new buggy..I have owned HB products and at times their parts support can be kinda sketchy..make sure you get spares for either..
