Thanks...I was hoping HPI was bringing this version in...



That design seems more solid....found the items on precisionrc or rcmodel....Jet Racing version is half the price of the HPI if anyone else is looking.

You may want to consider the graphite link mounts, those aluminum jobs look a bit heavy to place above the cg.

I had the Jet version... no significant difference to the HPI version.

the graphite version is just as good and alot lighter.

the Square heatsink motor mount is more pinion gear friendly than HPI's...

It doesn’t look like the carbon shaft is coming to the US any time soon. $too expensive$

The carbon shaft is 3 grams lighter.

So from your response we can assume that this in no way will replace the Pro4 since it is definitely a HB car.
So what was up with Hara Driving it and all the pro4 parts on it?
Also, you guys are sticking with shaft for future development of the pro4?
C'mon Thad, Throw us Bone over here!

Why would another manufactures car replace the Pro 4???

Hara WORKS for HB and is sponsored by both HB and HPI. The only reason he used the Pro 4 is because HB did not have a TC…until now.

Maybe they are just using the pro 4 parts to save on prototyping costs, I honestly don’t know.

Any word when HPI "hop-up" parts will be available in the US?
And please don't tell me that they are too expensive for the US market!!

Hey Thad nice avatar. Also I like the shaft cars, but not the HPI shaft car since I don't have one. I like my TC4.
