You probably can't in the US. But I know that RC Champ in Japan already have them.

But in the meantime...

Finally, it's officially announced..

The HPI Switch FWD Mini!



RTR form only (at the moment) and a few specs as follows..

* length: 285mm
* width: 162mm
* height: 65mm
* Wheelbase: 210mm or 225mm
* weight: 1080g (rtr)

And before you ask, no official chassis pics yet. Delivery date just says 'March'

Default hilarious...

Tamiya announces a Fiat 500, so what is the newest offering from HPI? Another Fiat 500, lol. Couldn't they have switched at the to a Smart Car or something at the last minute? Or better yet, how about a Renault LeCar...FWD for the street version, RWD w/ wide rear axles for the R5 Turbo...

Cool... but they still haven't said anything about the 510... I know you guys already knew about the cup racer in general... but the 510 was new to me
