I send and email to HPI asking about the R40, and what about the future car. This is their reply.
"Thank you for inquiring about the R40. We still carry spare parts for the R40 and still sell the Hara Edition of the R40.
We do have a gas on-road team. In fact, Atsushi Hara won the US Nationals 2 years in a row 2 years ago with this car. He could not attend this year because of scheduling conflicts.
Currently there is not a new car coming to replace the R40. HPI will continue to sell this car for anyone that wants to purchase it. Any future on-road racing cars will be developed by Hot Bodies though. Now that HPI and Hot Bodies have merged, Hot Bodies will develop any future racing cars and trucks such as the World Champion Cyclone."
It is quite interesting that they mention hara wining 2 years in a row. (2 YEARS AGO
I agree with you guys. It seems that the days for this car is over. Hot bodies does not even mention gas onroad on their site.
I think I should reply and ask them why the R40 car is not even mention on the hotbodies site.
Looks its time for a new car. Im considering the MTX-4 or the G4S (Good parts supply)
What do you guys think?
