Hmm... good to know there is another RWD tourer... Any update on the fast gear in M04 handling? With lower torque(higher speed...), more controllable?!

Urr... not really good in composing these datas in my mind into actual...

Pictures...?! Please?!

Thanks in advance...

The best thing you could do is to try to lock up the differential a bit. This will transfer power to the outside wheel.

Just slapped together my M-05 and the friction dampers really suck Ballzz. Ordered a set of TRF's. With the stock shocks you might as well stick a po-go stick under it

OK, we all know the HPI Switch turned out to be a real dud of a car
(Hence the expression - "My car is a real bucket of Switch")

But...if nothing else they've provided something decent in the way of new bodyshells.

Check out this latest 210mm release from HPI, the stunning Alfa Mito. Oh man do I want one of these.



(Only in complete form at the moment but the bodyshell by itself shouldn't be too far off.)

Can someone tell me what the bearing sizes are for a m-05 non pro with plastic rear uprights? I was checking out Avid and they have some nice stuff and cheap. 1 dollar bearings.

I didn't even realize they continued to make the Switch after the first week or two of crap reviews. Never seen one here and it's not even listed on HPI's N. American website. One other thing about HPI, is it just me or when they were designing the E10, did they completely rip off the TT-01 or what?
