That seems to be the running theme. I used to race HPI cars back in the day and I was very happy with them. Most every hobby shop I went into had a wall full of parts for them. Now nothing.

This looks like a nice car, but doesn't look like HPI wants anyone in the US to have one.

Even if you could get the car, parts availibility will keep you from driving it...

You will have to find somebody in Asia or Europe to answer that question. Nobody here in the USA has driven a Pro 5.

The car is amazing. I have 2. The fit and finish is too notch.
Box stock setup was instantly faster than my updated TCXX's

I'm on the infantry team, but some have made it to hobby shops. The demand has been stronger than supply.

Hopefully tower gets theirs online soon. They are the main supplier.

That's great. I searched tower and found nothing related to the Pro 5. However they are stocking the new HPI RS4 Sport 3.

So how does somebody go about getting on the infantry team?

And how would one do that? Isn't that like a sponsorship thing? Don't they have to ask you to join?

So, you've gotta join the infantry to get a Pro 5.

I think so.

That's why I was asking when the general public could get one. Those of us who aren't sponsored.

I mean, if HPI wants to sponsor me, then sure, but I don't see that happening...
