Last time I heard was Q2 of 2015. Let's hope they don't pull off the tradition of making it out of unobtanium.

It would be great if HPI/HB were not so quiet about what is happening with the car. They made a big fuss at the worlds and are now silent....

We live in hope I guess!!

Seems it will always be the case with HB/HPI with great product, poor execution.

The other issue for them will be that everyone else will have their cars out first, Yokomo BD7'15, Tamiya 419, Xray T4 2015, VBC Wildfire 07, and ARC 2015 to name a few significant ones that are out or almost out. Not sure folks will wait for this car, wish it was going to be released earlier.

I had a chance to see the Pro 5 in action yesterday at Cal Raceway in mod. It looked very impressive. It rotated nicely and looked very smooth, fast, stable and easy to drive. Hiro won the A main with it and was racing against one of the best mod racers in Cali. I was very impressed.
