Default HPI Honda Bodies

I know Great Planes has taken over HPI America. Why have they discontinued all the Honda bodies? I have a Honda and would like to have a Honda bondy on mt RC car. The overseas/international HPI website still has Honda bodies.

Bodies are usually dropped because the licensing agreement has run out. Look around online (Amazon, Ebay) and you may find the body your looking for. Good Luck

Yes, the HPI Honda bodies are available everywhere but the USA. It seems strange that there would be a licensing restriction/limitation on the USA only. Well, I guess I will get something else.

Basically ebay is your only friend. Almost none of the shops have honda's bodyshells. Well, there is S2000 which is still in production. But, for ex. HPI made a Civic EJ (coupe 6gen) which is very very old school, and it's really hard to get one. If you're looking for an EG civic hatchback, Tamiya makes one, and still sells it. ABC Hobby makes EK civic type r and Integra type r bodyshells which are really detailed and very good quality lexan and you can find it in any shop which sells rc drift stuff (banzaihobby.com ; www.rc-race-and-drift-japan.com )
