Default "The champ arrives! Fujitsubo & HPI Super Taikyu Subarus together again on US soil."



HPI and Hot Bodies Sponsored Fujitsubo Race Car Arrives on US soil for the first time.

HPI Racing / Hot Bodies USA based out of Foothill Ranch, Ca has taken delivery of the FUJITSUBO Subaru Impreza STi race car that competed in the Super Taikyu Endurance Race Series in Japan, winning the overall class title in 2005. This turbocharged 4WD racing wears HPI Racing and Hot Bodies sponsor logos, along with Fujitsubo livery and bright yellow and orange paint, making it one of the most recognizable cars in the Super Taikyu series.

The Fujitsubo Subaru will not be alone here in the US as it will join the HPI Racing Subaru at the HPI Racing USA headquarters. Look for appearances and events coming up in 2007 to show off the car.

In the mean time HPI has released this teaser video of delivery of this one of a kind racing Impreza:

Be sure to stay glued to your seats as The Monkey's Trunk brings an exclusive and indepth first look to our readers of both the Fujitsubo and HPI Impreza in our next issue.

I drive past hpi (near oakley) all the time...i'll have to look a little harder tomorrow and maybe i'll get a better glimpse. I also just found out i live in the same apartment complex as one of their employees...so maybe i can talk with him into getting me a closer look!

We will know more about the events the car will be running in soon. The HPI Super Taikyu car has been here for over a year and now we have it's stable mate joining it. I know there is an event planned here soon in So Cal that will be an opprotunity to see the cars (not racing though). More details to come.

As for the wing there will be a full breakdown for both cars in our upcoming issue. The car was apparently packed up during the rain in Japan and was quite dirty and in need of a bath upon it's arrival.

How did an MY06 car win a series in the 2005 season? that just seems odd

But other then that, sick looking car indeed.

enkei RC-T4!!
they're sick but it's all about the whole flow of the car with the rims, I don't think it'll look nice with stock bodykit IMO.

KEEP US UPDATED TmT

The engine in these cars looks stock but they're crazy fastt

Japan usually gets refreshed body cars before we do and a lot of times they will just update the looks if it's just cosmetic changes.

We will get as much information and detailed pictures as we possibly can without compromising their "secrets" to any competitors.

HPI doesn't sell to the public out of their offices as far as I know but I will have details about this event in So. Cal shortly.
