Arrow PRETTY SLICK!!!!!!

I didn't think I was going to like the new HB at first, but now after seeing these body off shots I must say I'm quite interested now!

You're right, it looks great. It is definitely one of a kind too, none of the other buggies come with an aluminum chassis and carbon fiber shock towers stock. I would definitely be looking into one if I wasn't already happy with my B4.

Try to make them bigger yourself then. I ALWAYS choose
640x480 in Image Shack but some pictures do not show as that size. Thats why I put the >>>>>>LINK<<<<<< to Oople so you could see them FULL SIZE! Get it? Click on the link thingy and you can see nice big full size detailed pics.

Oople smartly copy protects their exclusive pics so people like us dont go copping their stuff all over the internet. Thats why theyre thumbnail size in case you cant put 2 & 2 together?

I was thinking the same myself. I swear that the early proto's I saw of that car were all plastic. I'm just glad a company's finally making something slightly different and not just the same old same just different brand. I'm curious as to the cost? You would think its going to be the most $$$$ considering the materials used.

Looks beef, I bet it holds up great. I can't wait to see how much they go for.

The first pics i saw had a natural finish aluminum instead of the hard anodized, the hard anodized looks better IMO. I am wondering the same thing about the price, Hopefully the price is competitive with the other buggies out because the car sure looks competitive.

Yeah they talk about that in THIS thread. Check out the body on pic at the top. SWEET! It looks VERY similar to the D4. I have to say these HB's are really growing on me. I vowed long ago to never own an r/c car with purple on it, but I might have to make an exception for these.

Oh yeah, I forgot someone bumped the original thread for this car. Maybe we should pick it up over there?
