It looks good and it would be good to see Hot Bodies/HPI make a return to 200mm on-road gas racing.

Interesting they have gone same approach as Mugen with the lay down throttle servo. Team Magic has done with for the last 12 years or so and they are looking at going "Main Stream" and change too an upright position.

Hope it comes to life and we see it at club meets soon!

Well, lets hope that it is lighter than the almost 1900g R40 that was offered by their other division a few years ago. See some Xray styling queues in it. Since the NT1 is the top of the 200mm pyramid, you copy from the best!!!

Uuuuuummmmhhhh, what do you mean by top of the 200mm pyramid?

You are not thinking that because J.Hudy said so, right?
