hopefully this is a good change because maybe now if we wait another 7 years
we might finally get the 1/5th 4x4 we've all been waiting for and then pigs might actually fly .
Amen to that SPL. I was so excited when I got the call about the 4wd baja SC arriving at our shop to only find out that it was another pig with lipstick. Just an extended savage with an SC body. Can you say disappointment.
I know a way to help HPI get back on their feet. Re-release those belt driven RS4 we all know and love. I cant recall many cars that have been discontinued for almost 10 years be in so much demand. I check online all the time and see the Racer2 and SuperNitros go for prices that compare to what they were when new. I ran my racer2 a couple of weeks ago at a strip where some other people run and was offered 300 for a rolling chassis. Come on HPI, listen to the people and get those belt drivens and 4x4 Baja out. Or did KM beat you to it already?
i think they can keep the 4wd baja to themselves, the platform doesn't lend itself to 4wd well anyhow, and it's already been done....twice.
and as hpi, the manufacturer, haven't been affected by any of this hobbico business i'd have to assume more pigs wearing lipstick are to follow, who knows we may even get one wearing lipstick, and a dress
here's a novel idea for HPI to help with sales..."how about actually designing something new!!"
