It was at the Toy Fair in Germany, so I'd imagine relatively soon!

Bigger question is, what is HPI doing with the Hot Bodies brand. it seems to me it is just to become HPI under the one name.

A couple of adopters of the r8 in singapore. Some rave reviews with the car being tested directly against the 802, 977 and mrx5wc. Supposed to be crazy stable. The Kit is in short supply here but spares look to be readily available. Will be going down to the track to see one of the r8s being shaken down tomorrow. Very keen as I have just placed my order in for one.

The 1/10 gas scene started with the 235mm cars - Impact 2wd, Picco Integra, Delta Fireball, and the likes before the Nitro RS-4.

Buts thats another story -

And he didn't finish first because he ran out of fuel just before a pitstop.

And for myself I finished second with the R8 also in the National class. The car was great and easy to drive.

What you can get?
All cars are using the Mugen rim today, also known as OS2 sold by many brands like Matrix, Enetti, ATS, Xceed etc.

If you are referring to the US, I have not seen any, nor do I think anyone is running the chassis here. Considering it has been in team drivers hands for quite some time, and it's available in Europe for purchase.
