The Jumpshot MT from HPI

The Jumpshot MT from HPI

Although I’m a fan of the orange and black color combination, it boggles the mind as to why I haven’t picked up or tried my hand at one of HPI’s various vehicles.  Since they’re a mainstay in the R/C hobby with years of experience and a “decent” number of cars and trucks in their lineup, its surprising that I haven’t looked into their vehicles yet.  Having said that, their newest release may have me looking there way in a while.
