In 2007 my friends drove HPI Baja 5b 859miles. around Iceland in 3 days. I took part as the photographer and documented the event 8)
Here is a report from HPI Racing with my photos.

very cool, is that real?  My buddy has one of those cars he bought some crazy batter for it and the thing does like 60 now.  He has a hard time getting it up to speed because it constantly just wants to flip over.

Its actually not my RC car but it sure is real. Its an onroad car from HPI. I think I must have one;)

It needs practice to drive those cars, they go very fast. Im not sure that this bodyshell will ever be used in a hard racing;)

Here is my 5B knockoff. 30.5cc engine and tuned pipe, stupid stupid fast. Tons of aluminum parts. almost unbreakable. Was an impulse buy this summer while I was away for work. Bought it to make myself feel better lol





I also have an old RC10T buggy that I bought new with paper route money way back when they were the shiz. Have the original box and manuals for it. Havent used it for years but man did I blow money on it when I was a kid.

RC I regret getting rid of the most was a Kyosho USA1 monster truck, it was awesome (from what I remember anyway) Gotta find another some day to restore and play with. That and a Clodbuster, always wanted one, a buddy has two but he wont sell me one!

You guys have some pretty cool rc's
