Last week HPI released this teaser of a new 1/8 vehicle that will run on gasoline instead of the traditional RC nitro fuel. Previously you only saw this technology used in their 1/5 line of Baja vehicles.
Electric is huge right now thanks to LiPo batteries, brushless motors, short course trucks, and new race platforms from companies like TLR, etc. For nitro to take the lead again something new has to be released to get people’s attention. So could a gas powered 1/8 truck from HPI do the trick? What are your thoughts?
