macky thats a good one, I thought it was from the first sighting. But I thought I was really nuts.........I don`t know what they are doing over there at HPI. But teasing the 12 year old kids with this new toy (The Pro4 or what ever they are going to call it) to forget the problem PR03 was the smartest thing Kent and company has done in a Long long long ;long long time..... The last was the release of the pro2.

sure HPI has to make a graphite chassis on the so called pro4, otherwise, it is just a TC3 + upper deck !

The Alex is already in production. It has received very good feedbacks from drivers. Why border this hpi prototype? No one knows when it will be in production or how much it costs. I like my tc3 but I've heard the Alex handles tight bends far better. You can even choose the color of anodised parts before you purchase the kit. There are orange, pink, blue...

The Baracuda" is the name of the "alex". it comes in red, blue, pink (Orange? i have not seen that color in the baracuda? thats the older call your refering too) . But one thing I don`t like about this car jenny is the vertical susp pivit ball susp system. Its a copy of ABC older cars that hand very bad. Why Alex used the system instead of a standard susp pin system being talked about out here.

The Alex baracuda is a great looking car but it doesn't exist in the US and probably Europe too and it probably never will.... That's why the PRO4 is the way of the future.

The baracuda is many for the Japanese market. If it does reach outside japan thats great. But most likely it wont. Does not matter because of the TC3. As for the Pro4 or what ever they are going to call it. I sre hope to god its as good as people say, because i don`t think HPI can take anymore bad new in the touring car div of their company.
