Yeah hasn't moved lately so that's good. Used to be mid June, then late June, then mid July and now late July. Just better not be anything August or getting the other gold colored car on the market and giving up on HB/HPI.

I would wait, I just received my Pro5 and the build was awesome. You will not be disappointed, I have built a lot of kits, from the material to how everything interfaces, this kit is professional and the real deal.

Very very nice kit, it's worth the wait!

Too late, was seeing kit was due this week then got pushed out again. Got a Xray instead, so now figuring out if like it more than my Awesomatix.

HB needs to get this stuff together, been driving HB for 10 plus years but frustrated me a few years back with part support and getting kits. Good cars but need to get it figured out.

They are losing a lot of long time customers. I had only ran hpi/hot bodies, but the lack of parts, and slow to market products lead me to change over to Xray.

I admit that I was excited when I saw the PRO 5 in person at the 2014 IIC in Las Vegas. But I am afraid that is the only sighting I will ever get of the PRO 5 in the USA. I have already bought my new TC for this year. It is a Serpent Eryx 3.0. I live in the same neighborhood as the local Serpent distributor, so getting Eryx parts is no problem.

+1 Until my house in VA sells, I have time to wait. But as a long time HB/HPI racer, that Xray T4-15 is looking very tempting. The main thing that holds me back is the huge HB/HPI parts collection that I have, which won't fit the Xray. At least some of those will fit the PRO 5 and nearly all fit my TCXXs and my and SpidarX's Cyclone TCs.

I've been trying to use up your parts so it will be easier for you to come over to Xray.

IF you are going to use up my HB spare parts, at least you could crash earlier in the race so I have a chance to catch up before you limp across the finish line.

That gets expensive if you keep breaking left front hubs, $500 per crash, lol.

If you really want to make your life difficult you could get a Kyosho TF7

Well guess I'm back to waiting for this kit. Picked up Xray T4'15, tried everything to get it to my liking and not the car for me at all. Just felt numb pretty much everywhere. Best I could do was almost a lap off my Awesomatix.
