Default HPI's new F1

HPI's New F1





Quote from Redrc.net
"Spotted and snapped by one of our readers at the Radio Control Motorsport Experience, which is taking place this weekend during the Long Beach Indycar race in California, is this new Formula 10 chassis from HPI Racing. We don’t know much else other than what we see here in the pictures. Its a 2wd electric chassis and looks to be a faithful replica of the Formula 1 chassis’ from last year with the exception of the slick tires."

The designers at HPI are on a roll right now! In the past few months we've seen the Savage Flux, Baja 8T, Cup Racer, Cyber 10B, HB D8e, and now this Formula 10?
What's next? Baja 10T for the short course class? 200mm nitro sedan (please!!!)? Isn't there an all new 1/18 micro due out this year?

Anyways it'll be a toss up between this and the new 104 but it's much easier for my LHS to get HPI parts.

Looks like they took the HB 1/12th scale and modified it to be an F1 car. It's nice to see they finally are using a scale sized rim and tire on this car instead of the 1/10th pan car rims and tires the old HPI F1 used.

I can't tell anything based on the photo. Hopefully there will be more coverage this weekend.

I have the old 1/10 pan car based Super F1, and it is awesome, but if the new car uses the same rim as the Tamiya car that would be the best of all possibilities.
