horizon hobby has these listed with a March date which is in line with the normal 1 month lapse in anything hitting our shores.

$119 with transmitter

it could kill them or it could do nothing. it's not so much about price but more about what is done with them. if nothing, they will fade away. without a reason to use them, who's going to buy them, even at $120. take HT USA, they don't seem to know what to do with dnano for the most part. a few shops are doing well thanks to proactive leaders. the rest twiddle their thumbs watching it die a slow death.

there has to be a compelling reason to own these in my opinion. i'll have one or more for home fun but how long does that last for the average person?

HPI needs to do something with the line, or we the people need to do something with them or they too will end up a curiostity.

we still don't have a public form of hfay for dnano... leaving dnano to HT USA is a recepie for disaster that we all see coming. i doubt horizon is going to do anything with them.

even xmods had their own racing series there for awhile in which they did very well. almost all of us had an xmod at some point.

Is it necessary? I think cheaper and safer is better and if these aren't targeted solely at us hobbyists, regular nimhs are probably a better choice(or cheaper to manufacture?). I'm sure converting it might not be that hard, and perhaps converting it to AA/AAAs.

The fist production run arrived in the USA in March. Unfortunately they arrived with some small electronics issues.. The bugs should be worked out soon and hopefully we will be testing shortly.

That's what I'd like to know too...I hope they're on their way back to manufacturer for revisions, would hate to end up with one of the duds.

HPI is not going to sell the cars that have issues, until they are fixed.
