That's the funniest "prototype" I have ever seen in my life. Let's look at it closely...

Associated front end (Nice prototype there)
Associated damper plates (Nice prototype there)
Associated battery trays (Nice prototype there)
Associated T-Bar (Nice prototype there)
Standard 12th scale axle (Nice prototype there)
4 bolt rear end (Nice prototype there)

Way to think out of the box HPI on this prototype. And by "out of the box" I mean you pulled the parts out of someone else's box!

LMAO

Everybody talks about the lack of innovation in touring car design... just look at this "prototype" 12th scale! The only thing innovative is the purple anodizing, if you want to call that innovation.


I'm not trying to say that more innovation is necessary in 12th scale. The cars are very simple, and we've had many years to try other ideas. It just seems od that this car would be labeled as prototype.

Its a Hot Bodies 1/12th, not HPI. An evolution of the Hara Hammer.

Nothing interesting about that car at all. You could build that entire car right now with a 5-minute call to IRS and a new 12L4.









Calling that a prototype is anything but accurate.

Default hot bodies 1/12th car

hey all:maybe because it's hot bodies first 1/12th pan car so that's why they're calling it a prototype.besides if there is alot of associated parts on the car it's because they work.just my 0.02 cents worth

Are you thinking about the tweak plates under the T-Bar?
If so...
Sorry... Yokomo was faster... I think they released the plates 12 months ago...

Cheers
Chris

not quite, did you see the aluminum lower pod plate. I cannot see the front of the chassis well enough, but I believe it is based of of hpi's older 12th scale. Then again I think it uses the yokomo rear axle found on their L4 worlds car.

Are you talking about the aluminum piece screwed onto the bottom of the t-bar to get rid of the tweak screws? Because I see tweak screws in the t-bar.

Hi,

yes, exactly those tweak plates. I know for a fact that they were used at the Worlds by Hara... Andy Moore used tweak screws...

Cheers

I presonally would rather have tweak screws than the plate. Much easier and faster to use the screws than to true tires.

Then again at a big race where tires are used once, maybe twice, it may not make a difference
