I bought one to match my 2011 Fiesta.

That looks fantastic!

I'm seriously looking at these things but I'm torn between the Fiesta and something like the Raptor because having the off road capability of the Raptor gives a lot more options for running it.

Plus it looks amazing,

Too bad it's the old body style.

If they made a nitro one based on the Jato I'd be a lot more interested.

I have the Raptor and it is one of the best RC things I have in my collection! I run it in the snow, rain, dirt, gravel, sand, grass, woods, ice, and once dumped it into my pond. It is just a tank of a RC truck.

I keep waiting on HPI to make a 1/10 scale Fiesta since I have a number of 1/10 scale chassis'. I would get the Micro RS4 or WR8 Fiesta from HPI if I wasn't into RC planes. With rally cars, sports cars, street cars, helicopter, boat, and a few planes, the Raptor remains one of my favorite RC toys. I was never into RC trucks, but love my Raptor from Traxxas.

They also make some really nice RC dragsters, including the one driven by ex-Fiesta Movement Agent, Courtney Force.

Hey Bryan, that pretty much seals the deal. When I get one it's going to be the Raptor.

As for Courtneys dragster, Tasca and Force actually work really closely with each other so I'm guessing that may have had something to do with us carrying the Traxxas line.

That makes sense about Courtney and Tasca.

Steve, you can't go wrong with the Raptor. I have a number of cars and they need a perfectly smooth surface to run on. I built a rally car, and that still needs a well groomed dirt surface (baseball diamond). The Raptor goes thru anything! I was actually in the process of buying the HPI Toyota Pre-Runner Baja truck when I saw the Raptor coming out. I pre-ordered it months in advance and got it in the fall. I am very glad I did not get the Toyota truck and could get a Raptor instead. The quality was outstanding, so I bought a Traxxas boat to use on my pond. Now I just need a trailer to tow my boat behind my Raptor. If you click the links under the pictures, there are more Raptor action pictures on my Flickr site.

I have the rustler, but its unfortunately been collecting dust this past year. I need to redo the suspension, but haven't had the time. Traxxas is Awesome.
