The HPI Switch is our latest True Ten design, featuring the first-ever front-wheel drive (FWD) chassis from our engineers! FWD makes the Switch easy to drive, even with smaller wheels and a short wheelbase, and a car that's easy to drive means that it's FUN to push to the limit!

Racing around a carpark with your friends was never this much fun! With the realistic, officially licensed bodies and easy handling, the Switch is an absolute blast to race with your buddies - why not try it out for yourself!

The Switch is able to fit bodyshells designed for all M-chassis cars, making it a great addition to any hobbyist's RC garage.

Talking to Hpi today about these cars and have out some good info:
motor fitted will be 35turn
wheelbase is adjustable between 210mm and 225mm
they will come rtr with a battery and overnight charger
tub chassis
retail prices still to be confirmed but have suggested roughly 130 - 150
its ready built and its based on the true ten cars so parts readily available...

which i think is a good contender to race with the Tamiya Mini

another thing to note tamiya no.50794 is out of stock from tamiya until the back end of April ish....:cry: so look after your gearboxes....
