Default 18th scale bodies?

I am vaguely considering blowing my xmas overtime money on a HPI Micro RS4 - just for fun, and to give my mamba 6800 something to do because I am sick of rebuilding my Mini-T all the time and I think I am more likely to go easy on an on-road rc than an offroad one.

But there just doesnt seem to be any 18th bodies around. I thought with the re-release of the RS4 HPI might be releasing some new ones, but there just doesnt seem to be any around. - there used to be quite a selection, but now there is barely anything.

is "the industry" trying to kill of 18th scale?

There are some still out just hard to find now. Proline might still make some. Look at you Local Hobby Shop they most likely have some bodies maybe even some really old ones that are nice. Check out www.one18th.com at the store there they should have some. If you cant find anything just post back here for more help.
