There was one out years ago every place but NA that flopped... Well wouldn't be the 1st time the US got the stock that didn't move shipped to em just look at the Brama 10b...

All joking aside I seriously have doubts in HPI as they can't get anything right it seems anymore

Thumbs down

If a little Italian company (Compagnucci) could do this 15 years ago with a .39 spark engine, I don't see why a big company like HPI can't get it together and release this thing.

I was going to say the same about the link not working. I looked at hpi's site and they have nothing about it being released. None the less I am looking forward to your recieving yours and a quick review of it.

Good luck

Knowing tower they probably had an employee training exercise, and forgot to remove the entry. Its happened before

Dunno about anyone else, but I gave up hope with HPI
I mean didn't the release date slip 2X already, then all info just vanish on it. Seems more like those revolutionary vaporware programs companies were always promising that never materialized in the early 2000's

I've always loved the savages...had the first Savage 21 and many others. But something about it doesn't look right. Maybe it's the body proportion to the rest of the truck...hmm. Sure looks fun though.
