Default HPI Mini Trophy 1/12 Scale 4WD Desert Truck

Looks pretty good, I think.

Sweet, thanks for sharing! Looks like it could be a lot of fun. Should be interesting as more specs are unvieled.

Theres a real picture of it on tsa's website in the sponsor section window. I was going to upload the screen shot but got sick of trying to get it under 97.7kb's, and don't have access to photobucket or any personal hosting sites at work

So click here and you can see it, it almost looks like it has an interior?

Now their ad I've seen in some magazines makes sense "There Is A Finish Line Out There".

I don't think it will have a solid rear axle...
From HPI: http://www.hpiracing.com/kitinfo/103034/
"PROJECT MINI-TROPHY 4WD DESERT TRUCK
With TSA and HPI working on parallel Mini-Trophy desert projects, the highlight is TSA utilizing an independent suspension design base for their new 1:1 desert truck. Ito was thinking independent suspension as well and while normal for R/C, independent suspension is not so normal in the 1:1 off road race vehicles, especially with trucks."


It looks like it will be a cool truck to have nonetheless

I know there's a thread on it at rcshortcourse.com, but figured id post the link to the press release here. Looks pretty cool, i was hoping it would be a hair bigger, and a solid rear axle. An upside, it uses 1.9's. This equals a new super scale geo's, and for those who buy them, you should be able to mount up your fave scale tire/wheel combo.

i like it. i think it would be a good platform to make a scale desert buggy off of!!!

i also like how they made the hub carrier/knuckle one piece!!!





i'd also like to see it without the cage on it. i wonder what car they borrowed the driveline from???

$240 too spendy for you?

I really hope this will be close to final pricing, but then again Tower has been known to adjust pricing as final release draws near.

Oh, shoot... I thought I read somewhere it was gonna be closer to 400... but if it really is close to 250, I might have to get rid of the slash!
