I'm sure the actual street price in Japan will be quite less. for Sure Champ HObbies will sell it well below retail...but watch out..they charge taxes, fees, and shipping...sometimes it's not worth it getting it from Champ Hobbies especially when you only save a few bucks...
That is true with the tax and retail and stuff but Im glad because at my Local Hobby Shop If you race you get 10 percent off which isnt that much but I also know the owner so I get it good

Because HPI does'nt care.

Where are all the HPI factory drivers at largest
indoor races such as ,
Snowbirds,
ROAR National indoor championship.


I honestly don't care about races halfway around the globe., seems that's all HPI cares about.

Don't get me wrong I love my HPI, but it's getting fitted for asphalt only. And I'll probably buy the Cyclone car when it comes out.


But for indoor. my new RDX suites me just fine, plus the support is unbelivable It's amazing how much you can learn talking to top level team drivers.

HPI has a larger market overseas. That's why.

90% of the world races on rubber tires. On carpet, asphalt, indoor and outdoor it's all rubber tires. Why make special changes to the car regarding foam tires when the foam tire market is so small?
