Looks very good. Very standard design but obvious high HPI/HB quality!!

Looks as though it has adjustable KPI as well as caster?! Would that be right?

what you see i what you get id say.. all your industry class standard adjustments and it sure is looking quality other wise design.. theres only so far you can get before enough intermingling of designs happens that new features/designs come through.. ie the use of a difuser is pretty neat(not new as the pan class has had them) ..

I'm wandering if the diffuser would actually be illegal in the class. Certainly in the UK any under body / under chassis aerodynamic aids are not allowed. As our rules are based on EFRA/IFMAR rules then it probably applies in most places too. Hopefully it is a removable piece and not moulded into the rear mount or anything!

Other than that the car looks sweet!

By the way there was already a thread on this discussion here:
HOTBODIES "R8" All new 1/8 On Road car

Red rc had also covered the car development for the last 6 months with 2 or 3 articles on it.

Car looks good but where do you buy it from??? I asked Amain if they will sell it and they said no. It seems France is the only country that sells them.

FYI. The rear diffuser is attached with 2 screws to the lower rear suspension block, so can be easily removed for sanctioned races.

at this time i havent seen any US based shop bring it in.. as the car was publicly released in nov. 2014 so its early days for it to be picked up.. but im sure you can order it into your local who either allready deals with HB/HPI or other wise they can bring it in.. lovely looking car..

other wise as you may be aware.. there are a few italian shops stocking this car.. its a option..

Id take issue with what you say about diffusers being illegal ? If you go through the 2015 BRCA construction rules there is nothing relating to under body/chassis in there that would exclude this. In fact in the wet all sorts of guards start appearing on chassis anyway and usually only questionable if the technical inspection deems them unsafe under ruling below.

1.1.2 The Designated Officials may disqualify any car that, in their opinion, would be a hazard to spectators or other cars.

Surely HB anyway would have already ensured these parts are of a material and size that wouldn't fall foul of all EFRA and IFMAR construction regs ?
