Default will will hot bodies ever make another 1/12 pan car?

I guess I might just be wishing out loud in this thread, but I am a fan of Hot Bodies cars and would love to see them put out another 1/12 pan car to once again become competitive in that class. I know at the worlds, a number of Hot Bodies team drivers ran the CRC due to a lack of an up to date car under the Hot Bodies brand. It would be good to see them fill the void in their lineup for that class with something designed for racing! I was just wondering if I'm the only one that would like to see this happen, or if there are plans for maybe someday putting something out. I know it's probably a long shot, but I just thought I'd put some feelers out there.

I asked, and was told yes but it's not a priority at the moment.

If you want to race 1/12th anytime soon, buy something else :-)

I run the CRC Xi and will be picking up an Xti in short order, I'm just waiting for the conversion kit. Wonderful car, no doubt about that. I'll never stop running 1/12 I'll be happy when it is a priority.

As 12th scale has returned to popularity, the market is saturated with a lot of new cars, so I can understand how a new HB 12th is a low priority

But given the quality of HB cars, it would be nice to see what they would come up with
It would no doubt be a sweet ride
