    What happened to all the bodies??

    Picking up a 4-tec after the holidays and I'm looking around kinda building a shopping cart for when I go to buy the vehicle. I noticed like every single 200mm hpi body is discontinued.. anyone know why this is? Been digging deeper and there really isnt a whole lot of stuff for touring cars... unless I'm looking in the wrong places.

    Any help getting a location on a Hawkeye subaru body would be great.

    HPI has had financial troubles for awhile now. Parts including bodies are almost impossible to find, yet some parts are starting to come back in. I know Tamiya makes a few WRX bodies for touring cars if that is any help.

    I've had a few HPI bodies in the past so I'm sad to see them difficult/impossible to find nowadays. Still, the Tamiya bodies are a good option. I have to use wheels with a greater offset in the rear to balance it out, but am happy with the results.

    Look other places. My LHS has 10 different 200mm bodies. Traxxas has some but $$$, other ideas - https://www.amainhobbies.com/1-10-20...s-trucks/c1300
