BASH-A-PALOOZA 2011 – HPI Booth
As part of our BASH-A-PALOOZA 2011 coverage, we will be posting a few pics of each booth around the hall, or at least as many booths as we can get to. Just check out the gallery at the bottom of each post and it will be like you’re right here with us!
HPI is outside in the parking lot this year. Right next them is the a Monster Energy hauler and Vaughn Gitten Jr.’s full size Ford Mustang drift car! It’s the same one that one of the E10 Drift cars from HPI is based on. Gitten Jr. was out all day yesterday doing test runs during the show setup. His Mustang sounds absolutely menacing and the drift lines he was running were sick! We’ll try to get some video of Vaughn bashing around the lot and get it up as soon as we can.
We spoke to HPI about a number of topics. Most importantly was when my soul would be collected in trade for the Savage XS Flux… Sadly, it doesn’t sound like it will be anytime too soon. HPI told us they don’t even have more than a couple finished vehicles at their offices! Bummer. At least they had one at the show!
Stay tuned throughout the day as we continue our coverage of
RCX Chicago 2011 BASH-A-PALOOZA 2011!
