Default Any news for HPI and Associated new Cars?

I'm wondering does anyone know when HPI's prototype shaft-driven car would come out and how much it would cost? Also when the B4 and the Tc4 would come out and how much would both of them costs?

Spring may be for the Pro4

Maybe... but before summer ( fingers Crossed )

HAHA well I guess that's helpful! I hope HPI would make the prototype a better car the the Tc3. Or the Tc4 better then the Prototype!

Rumor is AE is working on an update to the TC3 chassis that incorporates many of the mods Josh Cyrul did to his TC3. If you've seen his car, it's a Frankenstein of AE and Losi parts and some serious milling. Batteries are moved closer to the center for one. I'd like to see AE switch to the nitro TC3 steering system.

Yes I'd like to see it too! I hope the Tc4 would be better. Because I want to get into shaft cars but don't want to get the tc3 because then "IF" the Tc4 comes out this year or next year, I will then want to get a Tc4. Which cars woud you guys prefer even if you don't know the specs and stats?

I'm a bit partial to HPI but I would think that the TC4 if it does come out would be good also...

BTW shaft is the way to go heheeh


but then again 80% of my cars have shafts

All the cars I have ever had was all belt. So I'm waiting for either the Tc4 or the new HPI car to be my first SHaft-driven car! HEre's my past cars:Hpi sport 2, HPI pro 3, Tamiya Ta04,X-ray which i had possesion of for 1 day and sold it the next, and now my only car left is the Losi xxx-s. I'm going to get a MICRO which will add to my belt collection
