I saw this Subaru commercial and part of it i saw an RC, it looked like a RS4 Rally but with a stick transmitter with a little kid holding it. Has anyone else seen it?

I'm pretty sure it was a Tamiya: They are the only ones that make a Lexan version of the current body style.

It most likely a HPI.....that is because they (HPI) are currently sponoring a race team in the JTCC (If I am not wrong) using the WRX

That HPI body is not the current body style, it's the 2001/02 style.

This is likely the car they used:

I didnt really notice it like that, the rs4 rally just came to mind. HPI is sponsoring some real life WRX its this orange one you can check it out on HPI's website.

the pic of the one that SteveK posted is identical to the one in the commercial....spoiler, opaque windows...grill its all identical....thats the car they used.

the car they used in the commercial is the Impreza STI....the HPI one is just the WRX.

Regardless of the spec they used in the commercial, it's the wrong model year, and they already ran the wrong car when they debuted the WRX in the US (Switching from the 'old' WRC power-sliding to the 'new' WRX in the same corner: They changed it later to reflect the '01-'02 rally car).

I used to run a WRX body on a TC3 for touring racing when the track was super tight. It worked quite well.

wow that 1/5 scale really makes the 1/10 look like a 1/24
