Or at the very least they're trying to earn some revenue by drumming-up sales for a vehicle they already have available.
Either way, it's better than finding out the company has gone wheels-up.
True! They recently started replying to the community on their Facebook page. Someone asked about the V2 Savage Xl trucks that were announced a while back and I made a comment about them being removed from the HPI website and probably cancelled.
Hpi responded and said they are not cancelled, just not ready for release. Cool stuff.
