I do agree with you to a certain extent on your statement. HB has never really been hardcore into the offroad racing scene until the past year or so. However, HB has recruited some of the best offroad racers and designers in the world to help launch a new super competitive nitro offroad racing line. So just keep an eye out for the new buggy. You will be pleased with what you see.

i highly Doubt it ....Look at the LSP...How many editions of that POS did they make....and Hatari or W/e they wnna call him could'nt even make the A-main at most big races with it.....I kno they have a LSP 2 Pro edition...but its still the same ol POS LSP.

Hmm thats oddly interesting that you haven't heeded any attention to this year's race results with Hara putting his buggy and truggy in the A's at Silverstate. On that note, Hot Bodies has had atleast one vehicle in an A-main at every major event this year. Which isn't to bad for a team with 4 traveling racers. But it must all be a fluke since Hara, Amezcua nor Robbers can wheel.

I would also like to add......

When you have Hara, Travis and Jesse working on a new design it will be right.

And when your 4 traveling drivers include Hara, Amezcua, and Robbers, ANY car will be in the A Main.


But, it'll be nice to see what new designs they bring to the table.

Hi guys,

Just wanted to give you some updates on the new car. I'd like to start off by saying this car will be completely different from the "Lightning" line of cars currently on the market. It has been re-designed from the ground up by our race engineer here in the states. The pictures posted above are of one of the early prototypes that went back to Japan with Hara awhile ago.

I don't disagree with the statements regarding HB's previous race releases, but the company is stepping up their game in a huge way.

Also, I see that A LOT of the credit is being given to our drivers; and they are all awesome, but keep in mind that Hara didn't make either main at the Silverstate last year, but qualified straight into the mains this year without bumping. Perhaps a sign of things to come.

Thanks to everyone for taking interest. As the release becomes closer we will have more info released throughout the media.

Good to see HB stepping up their game. Also , see the raving review of the Evo 2 buggy in the new issue R/C Driver. So much for a POS! can't wait to check out the new buggy. Ron

I claimed the LSP was a POS.....NOT this new buggy they are releasing.
