I like how you can experiment with different flex point with the upper 6-hole top plate. Bottom chassis looks sweet and seems to prevent scrubbing speed (no more chassis-ground contact) in the fast corners.

I would buy one just for the hell of it. Would there have to be some sorta down payment type thing for it or just order and pay when they say its ready? Who would u have to contact to order it? What about spare parts? Does the dad come with it too as a wrench?

So, an as yet unmade/untested car... its costing a fortune to build because it has no economies of scale and he wants you to pay some money up front coz he cant afford to take the risk that there arent enough mugs to pay $1400 when the car is finished....

If it ever breaks the only parts you can use are stock parts from the model its based on...

Why not just buy the car its based on????

Sheesh, I guess some people will buy anything, bet it ends up on ebay....

Unmade untested.... Its already done and for sale. Schumacher USA is the one who wants a downpayment before they order one.

Parts are guaranteed for 3 years

Know what you complain about before commenting.

The first Hirosaka assembled car will be designed and sold on subscription basis.
In case of subscription not reaching 10, this sales plan shall be cancelled.
In case of subscription exceeding 30, a lottery shall be held.
Scheduled completion: End of March
I am just reading the link which says they wont be made until after the subscription has reached 10 and the deadline is the 15th january...

I am not moaning, I am just laughing at you experts getting moist at an unsupported car (no spares except inferior bits from a different car and possibly 3 years of stock for other bits)

So thanks for your flame praps the "scheduled completion end of March" was not clear enough for my grasp of english

Sorry buts thats still pretty weak analogy again...........So your saying the Pro 4 is already a ferrari? Then every other kit out there is because the pro 4 isnt anything special compared to ALL the other latest "race" kits.......... Try again.

OK, Here we go.
The result of Daisuke Yoshioka, Atsushi Hara and Surikarn Chaidejsuriya with there HPI Pro 4īs seems to put that car way above "a Ford or a Chevy" in my opinion.

Same could be said about all the other cars out right now driven by their respected drivers(ie 415 Marc Rhienhard). Im not denying that the Pro 4 is a great car. Im just saying it is in no way a Ferrari while the other cars are "Fords and Chevys" . They're all equally as good.
