Is a funny World sometimes, just look at the people complaining because Xray and Serpent haven't released new cars in the time period they want. Lets face it Europe has been in snow so what testing have then been able to do during this period?

Bigger question is why release a complete new car the year of a Worlds event? Should have been last year giving longer time to find a setup sweet spot or wait till next year. Sorry my bad I forgot they are marketing companies and will do anything to make a sale.

Just throwing this out there to see if there are any potential buyers.
I have an HB R10 that is fully assembled yet has never been run. Completely pristine! Original box, instruction manual and a lipo receiver battery that I'll let go for $350 usd. 350 includes shipping to anywhere in the world. I'll provide pictures if you are interested. Takers?


I'd love to keep it and run it but there is no product support in south korea from their HPI distributor so I'd have to order parts from the UK. Just seems like a headache in the making.

Those who are complaining about xray not coming out with a new car often must be blind, they came out with a new car every year, even sooner, since 2012.

I have 3, It is a great car, but support is ZERO, parts are a pain in the neck to get, and nobody from factory or team ever write any thing about it.

What.... Xray have released updated versions each year, but the basic car has stayed the same since its release in 2009.

This doesn't mean you are forced to upgrade and nor doesn't it mean you will be quicker with the latest version either. In fact Hagberg seemed to struggle with 2014 model at last weekends ENS round in Germany.

Capricorn pullies on custom shafts and Mugen titanium pivot balls fit. Hasn't been a option part released for car since it was released end of 2012. Would be good if HPI Supported car better and you heard more and got some feedback from team drivers though.

I've been running a 2010 wc since it came out.
I just think its better to make a good car better instead of coming out with a whole new car

Support for the car definitely sucks. I really dont care about the pros posting here since, IMHO what works for them might not work for you or me. I've tried so many times to use other drivers setups just to go back to mine. It is good for the other stuff like how to solve a leaky diff or something to that extent.
If there was a good parts dealer for this car, I would give it a shot 100%. My first car was a kyosho RRR, the designer of that designed this so I cant see it being any worse than the rrr. You can see some similarities when you look at the 2

My R10 is doing my head in, I cant solve my radio gremlins for more than a few race meets. Anyone know of a plug or a switch that wont fail? I'm running my receiver in the stock position and i've tried it with swiches or by having a plug glued on top of the receiver box.
