  1. I have said this a few times before in HPIGuy's defense, but once again, he is not, nor is he purporting to be, a master builder. His videos are not about that. There are a lot of other videos on YouTube specifically about building models, of all kinds, at incredible levels. He is giving you a "What's in the box" and a quick build so you can see it together and he can comment on how it goes together. I will give you that he is usually very "tactful" about saying something is bad, but he is also in the business of review and needs the companies on his side. I watch his videos and know by the end if I am buying or not. It's kind of like the hobby shop display models of old, only in a contemporary video format.😉

    The chassis and suspensions look primitive at best. They look like something a hot rodder would build in his garage.


    That's because they kind of were...  Cobras were not high tech, driving a 427 Cobra was brutal. Tremendous power in a package that barely can contain it. That was the whole point and why they are legendary today. The ex Monogram kit is older, not sure why it is being marketed as new, but a pretty nice and accurate model.
