HPI, an Irvine based manufacturer of radio controlled cars, just announced their HPI Team Van. As of yet, they don't have a mini 1/10 version.

Here's a couple of pics:

Thanks FuryNSX. Man that's a pretty handsome lookin' Odyssey. But since when did Eibach start making springs for the Odyssey? Maybe I need to cancel my order on the H&Rs.
It's taking to dang long. Looks like we got some more research to do on this one. Thanks again.

Info from Axis website shows the wheels to be 19x8.0 with +40 offset, I think the tires are 235x45 or 235x40. Real nice....

If it's really using Eibach springs, looks like Eibach is continuing its' support to produce springs for the Odyssey. I am using their springs on my Camry and the ride and handling is excellent. Let's hope their R&D is better than H&R.

Both "H" and "R" use to work for Eibach or so the story goes. Both companies have good reputations. I'd personally love to have some coilovers using the Eibach RS springs.

Yeah H&R and Eibach are often compared to each other and both are very good brands. I too would like see coilovers from either company. I sent an email to HPI inviting them to share with us more details on that van. Man...I want my springs now!

Hmm...Eibach don't even advertise those springs. But H&R do?...there's something definitely wrong with this picture. I wonder if they're using springs made for another vehicle instead. Hmmm...it might be possible.

I think its one of the nicest looking Odys yet! I really like the contrast in colors on the body.

PS I hit Axis' website and did not see the exact wheels this van has listed. Could anyone else find them?

..not that I'm already considering new wheels & tires before I even get the van! No no no! Bad nyvram! Sit! SIT!

Without the graphics that van looks very much like another van I've seen.

The pic is kinda on the dark side so can't really see the tire and the gap between the body.
