I'm actually really excited over the cup car.
Finally, a manufacture has stepped up to the criticisms of current day Touring Car racing.
This release is a throw back to the fun days where anyone could pop open a kit, and go parking lot racing with nothing more than a few track dots and some companions. These cars are actually true to scale, look fun to drive, and dont appear to have a plethora of turn buckles to build/setup. Makes it easier for those entering into the hobby, but it is also refreshing/nostalgic for the ones currently in the hobby.
Sort of makes me remember the days of the Tamiya TA01/TA02.
Scale looking, fun to drive cars. Certainly, the hop up potential was there...but the key here is realism that does not bring with it the necessity to upgrade/constantly change a car's setup to have some sort of fun.
Kudos to hpi. And what a wonderful choice of bodyshells
Takes a page out of ABC's book!
