It is strange. Maybe they got together to block slash from being the kleenex or i pod. I really hope something is coming from OFNA in this category. Love their wares.

i love the maxxis theme... but how much stff did they steal from the sc10? i mean losi almost cloned the slash and now hpi almost cloned the sc10.

who wants to bet they didnt get promission to use the maxxis stuff.. itll be just like there old copy bodies of the fords and stuff..

The Slash chassis looks a bit better for this style of racing/bashing. I guess time will tell though.

Also, the Slash looks 1,000,000,000x better than the HPI.

Dang, I was expecting something revolutionary coming from HPI. Oh well, I like the wheels/tires though.

I must say the tires/wheels are pretty sweet. I hope that isn't going to be the actual body though. One would think they can do a bit better than that. Some Baja tech in there should be sweet as well.

The SC10 is a sharp truck as well. So is the Strike. This body just rubs me the wrong way. Should be an interesting few months for short course tracks.
