All i could say is that right now the car looks very promising. Lets see what it comes out from the worlds for HB and Hpi.

The car looks to have better cornering speed than the rest but we dont know if teemus car is 100% a Hb car because the clutch looks like the capricorn.

Good suspension set-up = corner speed - not clutch. How come it has to be anything but a great car and great driving? Smh.

Quinn I agree! Oh and the fact that they tested that car at that track while it was being designed! that always helps! It's nice to see another nitro tourer on the market! Spice things up some more!
Now only is KM would get a US distributor!

So, are we really to think it wouldn't have worked as good, if, it was tested somewhere else??? To rephrase it: Its basically being called a one-track wonder, now??? Smh.

Thumbs up

G-mac. Not surprising, by the way - I found the same kind of talk over in the KM HK1 thread. Smh.

I would not jump ship based on one race with world class drivers at the wheel of the car. I am not knocking the car, I agree the it had a very strong showing at the worlds and is very impressive. I welcome more choices of platforms.

Default Brilliant Move!

Guys, I think waiting to release a new car, AFTER the world's was a stroke of genius on Hpi / Hotbodies' part. The racing community has been snubbing their collective noses at Hpi race cars for many years. They're consistently viewed as second tier. It's been: "Oh its HPI, its good for what it is", which means what, exactly??? Taking it straight to the world's kills all of that nonsense in one shot. You won't have people on the sidelines waiting to see , if, whether or not it will be a proven car (because some local fast guy says so. Just because he's faster than you, it doesn't make him the authority on which cars deserve your attention). A podium finish at the world's quiets ANY thoughts of doubt. If, a company is in position to do so, they should follow this model. Can't wait to see this car at the local tracks.

This why Hara gets paid the big bucks. He podiums at the Worlds and all of a sudden its the must have car to get? I'm sure Hara can podium with juat about any car you hand him. The real question is what LHS that currently stocks HPI parts for its RTRs will be willing to stock this car along with its parts?
