I have a genuine HPI upper deck here.
I had it copied in regular and twill weave CF so could be persuaded to sell the original

Is that the one you bought from me off eBay? Will it be back up for sale? I regretted selling it.

Default Hoi chassis

Here is a page with a competition to win a chassis set from radio race car magazine Feb 93.
The top deck looks just like the hpi item.

I don't remember where I bought it from or what I paid it would have been a few years ago.
I'd be happy to sell it again, are you sure you sold yours to me?

Interesting because the HPI upper deck is for the ZX/MK1 chassis but the chassis in that pic has six cell cutouts like a MKII chassis and the motor brace looks like the MKII piece.
The front shock tower looks interesting

Ive seen an hpi chassis and it stands out like a sore thumb, there was a chassis or two around like mine where the seventh hole was removed as it wasnt needed plus could put other things there. I think and memory is letting me down but didnt the mk1 chassis have six holes

On team graphite cars, possibly makes more sense. I didnt use the top deck and dont recal anyone using it in the team either, theirs were standard kit cars or with proto bits, but teamline was used by some so some used the front tower or castor blocks. Chassis looks like a mk1 zxr.
