Looks like the same line up from last year and the year before that and the year before that. Disappointed in HPI.

Stretching a 1/8 chassis and motor, throwing big tires on it and calling it 1/5 scale is where I have the problem. The Baja and savage are great platforms, but that so called SC isn't going to keep them in the market competitively. I'd have liked to stay hpi but I wanted 4wd- so unfortunately if they aren't going to put something on the shelf, I'm going to buy elsewhere.

Besides stretching a 8th scale to 5th scale. Lets not forget they also know how to shrink things too.... That 8th scale is made in 10th scale and 12th scale. God I hate you losi.

Down to Miami for a few times. I went out and saw the high speed runs last time I was there.
