Interesting... although, they should have made a scale to compete with either the Dnano or the Mini-Z... another single make race series... I would love to see a bottom shot. Dont know about the battery choice.

Hello, HPI 2.4GHz integrated PCB/ESC! Definitely want to look into that...

And I want to take a look at the front suspension too, if it's a real dynamic strut system (NOT likely, but who knows) I will be impressed. The tierods at the very least are worth looking at, anything that small and short has a multitude of uses, not the least as tierods for 1/28 pan cars.

The battery and motor choice is fail... WWS and CRT used to have 1/32 pan cars that used AAA batts and 130 motors, those things were quite the rockets (if twitchy ones).


However, HPI has done at least one thing right so far, setting up the "theme" of the line. 1) very nice-looking bodies available for the chassis, 2) RTR goodness, 3) display stand with what looks to be an integrated charge plug (think Mini-Z LIT). Given HPI's standing with the big US distributors, I wouldn't be surprised if these Racing32 cars catch on really well over here.

I think I'll be saving up for at least a set of electronics from this car.

HPI makes/made the x mods too so they definitely have the technology....
wish they were closer to 1/27th just to give Kyosho some healthy competition...

Wow, look's great! I had the feeling this would come along eventually after their 1/18 scale Micro car. I like that carbon-fiber optional chassis?
I'm also curious as to price and release date. I'm also very curious with how adjustable their chassis are and if they can actually accomidate a wide range of 1/32 scale slot-car bodies.
Still have my RCP track even though I's got no more RC cars. This look's like it'll be fun!

HPI didn't manufacture the Xmods, they only distributed them overseas. The HPI Xmods come out of the same factory that RadioShack uses to make their Xmods.

very nice! i've always liked that scale and it's very unfortunate that this did not happen years ago when 1/32 carpet racers were available. i don't even have mine anymore.

was thier a price given? release date?

i must admit that i will likely get one of these if affordable and available here.

Looks like that H01 is built like a tank. I think that if anything, that chassis could be a nice outdoor "Z". If either are/can become AWD- outdoor drifters.
