    HPI new front wheel drive car

    hpi just released a car called the "switch" and it is a front wheel drive electric on road car. that they say is geared for people that are just getting into the hobby so its cheap easy to work on and run. i think it being the first front wheel drive rc it would make a very interesting racing class and would take a lot of skill to run

    You can turn any 4wd touring car into front wheel drive just by removing the rear belt or driveshaft

    I did a quick [URL="http://www.rcnightmare.com/hpi-switch-fwd-rc-review.html"]review on the HPI Switch[/URL] so check it out! This thing has gotten a lot of flack and I'm not its biggest fan but I think it would be a good car for a beginner and that is really what it was made for.

    i saw that... well it seems a little pricey for a beginner 200$ you could get a blitz for 190$ which is better.. so i think HPI screwed up on this one

    Believe it or not the Switch isn't new-new, came out about 3 years ago I think else where, it had a Lupo body stock.

    As for Under steer, typical with FWD cars, it can be tuned to even have over steer. It's all about traction up front.

    I'd get one if they were more popular, I think they could make a good Spec class for racing
