HPI Racing Blitz ESE Pro 1/10 Scale Electric 2WD Short Course Truck Kit w/MIP Diff & HB Beams Ti
I don't have this exact kit.. i have the orginal ESE. but since there are no reviews for this, i will do it. this is a great truck, seroiusly. i have owned mine for over a year now, and i race regularly. my truck is running the original HPI ball diff (which is still going strong), and race compound tires. I have the MIP diff in a firestorm and it is a quality unit as well, while it is lighter than the HPI unit, it may give up some durabilty becuase of the plastic composite instead of alloy ring gear. So far my ESE has broken zero.. that is right ZERO parts, and i don't go easy on it. Thank HPI durabilty!! i have only stripped one spur and that was becuase the pinion was inferior quality and wore prematurely. i switched the front spindles for the inline from the trailing that was recommended in the manual, for better steering turn in, but everthing else is setup by the manual. i have won races with this thing and am consistently a top finisher. make sure to go high torque MG servo and maybe upgrade the steering rack to AL. or tighten up the servo saver for more positive steering input/feel. the shocks are a thing of TiN and Al. anodized beauty. Overall this is a quality kit, and you can't go wrong with it. never mind the breaking chassy stories etc.. this thing is tough and if put together right, will win plenty of races. it's way better than the RTR version in every conceivable way: shocks, chassy, heatsink MM, Al. bulkhead, drive train. This is a superior race truck. Easy 5 stars.
