    ECX Boost Review

    The evolution of an HPI nitro F3.5 buggy

    So I bought this buggy a couple years ago and thought I'd post a little timeline of how it's changed over the years. HPI has given up on this buggy but I haven't and I bet there's not another like this one! I'm working on fixing the Toe and Camber this weekend so I can put tires to dirt soon.
