Andy I was wondering if more "Body mod" pieces were in the works. It would be great to get some Veilside kits recreated for the lexan. I guess HPI could even make new designs for them and not need a license from a third party.

Default R32, R34?

Thought I was getting an R34 (like that Pennzoil-liveried job a few pages back), but this R32 showed up. Decided to keep it as a spare and threw some paint on it. The R34 is on order and I have plenty of yellow paint (Kaybo take note). Why don't you paint one Lofton Lime and we can have at it.? I have a TC5R on order for the outdoor season. This is sitting on the old 200mm TC3. Pardon the Jaco Blues -- could only get one set of T37s in white.

for the beginning of the season, at least, I'll be running my orange Elise that I ran for the HPI Challenge not as lime colored as Barry's, but an interesting color nonetheless

Andyh, What happened to the Lamborghini bodies that HPI used to carry? I loved those things and was looking forward to getting a few more when I realized that I could no longer find them.

We could not come to an agreement in regards to licensing and licensing fees with Lamborghini for 2010.

Lower part of the nose and lower rear ends needs to be cut.

The body kit projects turned out to be a lot more involved than we originally thought they would be. So we would most likely just make new complete bodies in the future.

Well that's unfortunate. Not cool Lamborghini! Here are a few pics of my Lambo

Thats sad to hear, I really like the undercuts you get with the separate piece. Will HPI continue to produce the pieces for which you already made molds.

What happens to the molds for shells that are discontinued due to licensing problems? Like the Lamborghinis and the Beetle Cup Racer? Are they destroyed or parked incase a new license works out?
