For the love of god dude... Resize those.
On the plus side though... Once again, we've beat the front page to new stuff...

Yes there is a slipper. Looks great. Doesn't make me go woes though :p Nice tranny though.

This it the first time in ages I've said "wow" out loud looking at tranny gear pics.

Tranny= Awesome.

Looks like a raceable "tank".:D I like it!

I was going to comment that it looks great, but is a few clicks away from being a competetive racer... needs a ball diff, some weight-loss.But after thinking about it for a while, a sealed gear diff would be an asset with the power today's brushless motors and LiPo batteries are putting out, and chunkier suspension and chassis components would only make it more durable. Maybe HPI will release a kit version with a few goodies added - CF shock towers, hard-anodized shocks, titanium turnbuckles.
I'm tempted to set my T4 aside and give this thing a try. I see no reason why this wouldn't work well on the club level. Does HPI use a proprietary wheel?

HPI makes some nice Hard anodized 7075 parts for it like hinge pin holders, rear carriers and bulkhead, TiNi shock shafts and hinge pins. They also make some nice shocks for it.

I've got one ordered from my LHS. $170 plus tax, should arrive in a week or two. ;)

HPI's Europe page has a nice breakdown on the features of the truck, and a lot of pictures: http://www.hpieurope.com/kit-info.php?lang=en&partNo=10551
