Wow, I was stuck between the Emaxx and Summit or Brushless Savage. Now all those are out of the question, this thing looks awesome! I'm gonna guess around $750?

No doubt. I wouldn't be surprised if it approaches the $1,000 mark knowing HPI.

That's.... a bit big of a motor!

Doubt you'd be able to fit this in anything BUT a monster-truck frame. No doubt it's progress though, at least to the consumer market. I'm sure there's people out there that've made their own gas powered 1/8th scale, or even 1/10 scale's already.

take a look at this, also fits in the d812, d8 and there will be a apache with this engine
same size as a nitro big block, no problem fitting it in any vehicle that can fit big block engines

I thought you could only turbocharge 4 strokes, 2strokes get supercharged...

This is a two stroke, at least I think so

I thought it was a 4 stroke. That's what the press release said way back when and that's what people say now. HPI doesn't say one way or the other though.

Someone will run it on alcohol and pop a blower on it too, then hopefully put it in a Traxxas Funny car.
Moo.

It surely is a 2 stroke, see how it looks like? compare that to the already existing engines from hpi, looks very similar doesn't it? I think they just made the design smaller

I dunno, haven't seen a 360* view of the engine to tell if there are valves or not.

I like 2 strokes better but if I don't know if I was misinformed or not.

I looks like the info on every website is a little bit different, but I am strongly convinced this is a two stroke by the looks of it
