Default HPI Q32?????

Why is there no thread for this thing! It looks DOPE! You guys have been slipping in the micro section!

Anyone have any feedback, tips, etc on this thing? I want something smaller than my losi micro SCT.

The Q32 is fun!
Steering is much better compared to tip-steering other 1:32 cars have, the transmitter is a bit small for large hands but feels good.
So far only the long charging time is a bit annoying.

I have 2 of them. Bought a second to get more drive time. Been surprised how much I like. Been running it on my hobby stores MiniZ track on the weekend. Getting better but hot long way to go.

I had fairly low expectations for it but got it anyway and am glad I did! I am actually having more fun with this simple R/C than my Losi Micro SCT indoors due to the smaller size. Drives good, turns good, has plenty of speed , and jumps flat and sticks the landings. Well steering can seem overly sensitive at times depending on speed and traction. I actually like the transmitter. Just like they shrunk down a regular hobby grade RTR transmitter. Keeps the entire package compact for storage.

I can recommend the firm tire set (#114262) for slippery surfaces like parquet - Q32 is not that twitchy anymore...

For me handling on slippery surfaces also improves when turning the rear tire inside out.

Btw: a small polycarbonate rollbar (like e. g. the Xcite 1:32) can help as you donít have to get up from your sofa with every roll-overÖ Not very nice but convenient.

I keep holding one of these every time I go to the hobby shop longing for one... Just not sure on pulling the trigger yet, and always end up buying stuff for my race truck instead.

Honestly I found it very disappointing. The steering is very imprecise. No pleasure at all. It went back in the box after less than 10 minutes of use.

I really like mine, just looking for quicker charging and longer run times. Better than toy grade, but not 100% hobby grade, but still damn fun. made a course on the living room floor with random household crap and had a blast...
