Got mine from Pyramid in Pune on SB road. Same price.

I had 3 options

Enzo, F430 & 599GTB & I liked the F430 most.

Yes I noticed the differential

What am amazed is the level of detailing & working things like turn indicators, headlamps & brake light along with the wheel alignment switch & not to forget the suspensions

Default R/C Nitro Savage Monster trucks.

These are my Two Nitro HPI Savage X trucks. I have a lot more bodies that I paint and also a few more other nitro/petrol moster trucks to my collection. Scale models take second priority.

Default A few more R/C Vehicles from my collection.

Hey. Here are a few more shots and also pictures of the 1/8 Bodies that I have done. They include the Jeep Rubicon, The Chevy 72 C10, The Land Rover Defender and also the Dodge Ram and a red Rubicon. The Collection also includes a Wheely king which I shall soon convert into a crawler. An electric FS Honda Civic, An FS Nitro Hummer and not to miss the BIG Daddy 1/5 Petrol 30cc King Kong monster truck. PLus the two beloved Savage X and Xss. I have a whole lot of scale models too. But they stay indoor while these things do their trick.

Well, HPI has set up their Distributorship in india. My friend has it all set in Bangalore. So yes.

I do a lot of painting and hop/ups to these kits. If you need info, shoot. I'll help you out.

Sadly the R/c scene in India is not up to that scale as it is in the US/EU. But we'll get there. We shall soon start the club and also host races. the only thing that is lacking is members. So I guess teamBHP should take this as an Initiative. Lets race guys.

And just for the info, this is no kids toy. These are serious machines, with proper engines, tanks, suspension, differential etc. They touch speeds upto 80km/hr. If you're the faint at heart (Pocket too) do not try this. Serious damage could also involve injury and a dent in your pockets. Choose wisely. Always start with basic electri models and then move up the drive chain.

Yep. You got it. Monoj is heading it at U2RM. What brands are you dealing? You should apply to Traxxas. They're looking. Let me know if you need the address.
