Default NWSD Chassis for HPI

In case some folks don't follow Social Media, I wanted to share a project I was fortunate to assist with on R&D and testing.
Working with NWSD to create the first aftermarket frameset for the HPI VENTURE.

NWSD (NorthWest Scaler Designs) Based in Washington State has taken the popular Scattergun chassis and adapted it to be a Bolt-On aftermarket chassis for the HPI VENTURE.

HPI | Northwest Scaler Designs


If you are looking at options and alternatives for the HPI, Check out the Scattergun by NWSD.

Benefits?

Because that's really expensive for a set of frame rails. Like I actually laughed out loud when I first saw the price tag expensive.

So more shock position options, upper link mount options for better link geometry and overall chassis geometry is of no benefit? Not to mention a company showing some love to the "underdog". Your entitled to your opinion, but I would rather pay $75 for an improved chassis design before I would pay $32 for just a couple of stock rails. If you compare what you get over buying a stock chassis, the price is really on point.

Stock chassis rails from eBay......
