We have a local Corvette Challenge class that we have been running for several years , 1/10 pan car,1cell lipo,21.5, fixed gearing and HPI Z06 Corvette body with signed numbers and scale race livery.

Needless to say , we have ben running the same style Vette since 2010 , and are ready for the new ones!!

To bad they did not do a C6 Corvette. While not really a Corvette kind of guy I do think the C6 is pretty car.....the C7 not so much so.

Cheers,
Jim

The C7 is an 8th scale body.

i feel, well felt, the same way. I didn't like the C7 one bit, but then it grew on me.

now after the weekend, when i got to drive a 2017 C7, i have a new love for it - i drove a ragtop, but the hardtop is pretty kick arse too

I'll get one of these as soon as I can

The HPI c6 was good looking but didn't handle that well for me in usgt. I'm hoping the new c7 has great balance and handling all around. I need to update my garage!
