Our first order shipment will not be big as we are having this as a quick delivery parts should arrive a week later, so far so good on the cars strength so parts will be something of replacing as wear and tear rather than back-up parts.

Ok so the car has been doing well and is pretty durable as our driver had a few servo issues and having the car bounce off some track rails pretty hard but no broken parts and that's on 13.5 so far. The car will be here soon but a limited amount will arrive on the first shippment. Nitrohouse is taking pre-orders if you want to lock one up.

It's actually a really nice looking kit, with what looks to be a large effort put into the design, quite a surprise, but also a wonder coming into an already saturated electric RC market right now.

The car is definitely on par with the other kits out there. Its just getting faster and faster. I know there is an optional chassis on the way as well, 2.2 or 2.25mm I'm not sure, that will make the car better on low to medium grip asphalt.

If this was available a couple of months back, would you have given it a serious thought or would you still have bought the Xray?

When I saw the pics I kind of recalled but after reading the posts I am sure this is the car I saw being tested at the local carpet track. It was fast. It was smooth. It looked very competitive. I think it is a solid car.

No, as much as I like and admire features on so many of the different cars around, when it comes around to it, buying one of the 'major' players has it's advantages, usually in support and car development, this is also related to some of the big names who work and fine tune the cars design, the smaller players can lack much of that, which can give you something that comes up a little short of what you sometimes need.

I physically saw this chassis at TQ racing last Thursday and all I can say is amazing. HoBao took their time with this one. the bulkheads only need two screws to take out and some sort of a locking pin and the upper bulkhead flips for easy of adjusting, replacing or whatever you want to do with the diff. the chubs is something that I haven't seen for onroad. HoBao's team driver was driving the car and its like riding on rails. If I only knew this car was coming out then would of chosen this car instead of my Capricorn TE01.

I have never been a big OFNA fan but this offering from them has peaked my interest. Might pick one of these up once it is "official" out. Since I live in Xray country (Texas), like to see what another offering will do against the competition.

This car was the topic of discussion in our pits this weekend, too. The only on-road Ofna/Ho Bao car I had was the JL10e (shaft-driven version). Glad to see Ho Bao step things up with this design. Nitrohouse always had parts for my JL10e. Hopefully there will be good U.S. distribution for the H4e as well.
