We’ve been slowly seeing more and more product start rolling back in from HPI, great news since the companies future was up in the air some months ago. Recently the company has announced the re-release of 4 of their classis bodies – the 2001 Subaru Impreza WRC, the Hummer H2, Ford Focus WRC and Cadillac Escalade – all great releases in their day. The bodies have been unchanged over the years and include overspray film, window masks and a detailed decal sheet. Looking forward to more releases from this great company!
What We Like:
I’ve got a soft-spot in us for HPI – they were one of the first companies to sponsor me back in the early Touring Car days (Pro2 baby!). I took the Pro2 to a TQ and 2nd place finish at the Reedy Race (Stock class) held up at Speedworld in Ripon, California – such a great ride. Since then, I’ve run almost their entire line of vehicles in some fashion, so it’s great to see the company holding on and clawing back into the RC world.
What We’re Not Sure About:
Nothing, really, other than the fact that they don’t really have a US location anymore. This could result in some delayed shipping for parts or new products.
