I like it. Start production already.

We should start taking bets now on what car people are gonna say HPI copied because those people aren't capable of generating enough brain power to say something constructive.

This could be the turning point for HPI. The car looks awesome and doesnt really resemble any other car apart from the usual couple of features that look the same on them all.

I am glad they went away from the TC style high mounting supports. I am very tempted to place an order straightaway to be sure to get one. I am getting the same feeling I got when Mugen first appeared with the 1:8th scale Sting.

And look what happened to them WC's and more.

The car looks great. Finally they have a car that is for racing,and racing alone.

Its always good to have new cars on the market, another choice for us racers.

this new HPI touring car was made to compete with the likes of the serpent 705, where as the rs4 is more of a parking lot basher

It looks nice, but I want to see a pre-production mode or something before I really start to think about HPI's new car.


The wait continues.
