Can someone PLEASE explain to me why this car has 7 different prices , ranging from 269 Great British Pounds to 1800 Canadian Dollars which is CRAZY because 269 GBP does NOT = 1800 Canadian Dollars .

I also found the same car selling for 300 , 400 , 500 , 600 USD on Ebay for example !

What in the bloody HELL is going on , lol ?

Can someone please help out , this is confusing !!!

Additionally , if anyone knows ANYTHING about HPI , can someone please explain to me why the HPI website here claims to show the fastest SPRINT 2 FLUX http://www.hpiracing.com/en/kit/106168 , which is MUCH cheaper than the more expensive BMW M3 GTS shown here http://www.hpiracing.com/en/kit/112862 ? 

How could the cheaper car be faster/better ? 

Which one is older ?

Why doesn't HPI date products so we know what came out first , which could possibly help explain how a cheaper car model is better/faster than a more expensive car model ?

Finally , can anyone PLEASE tell me how any of the two mentioned HPI BMWs would compare to say the Sakura D4 or equivalent from other brands ?


Thank You for your time ...
Well... first of all, both of those hpi's you mentioned are 50/50 not red like the Sakura. What are you looking for Rwd or 50/50? It would make it much easier to put this all on one thread instead of five.

Forgive my ignorance on this subject before anything , my bad , I understand the HPI is NOT a RWD ; hence , my question .

I would like to know if the mentioned HPI cars could outperform the Sakura D4 if they were modified to RWD ; would they outperform the Sakura , Yes or No and why ?

Hope you got an answer , thanks for your time , its greatly appreciated .

P.S

Any clue why the HPI GTS has 7 different prices ranging in hundreds of dollars in difference ? Thanks , u missed that 1 :-)
I have no idea about the price difference. The Sakura D4 is made for Rwd and gets decent angle out of the box. The hpi is not made for Rwd so many modifications a upgrades will be needed to get it as good as the D4. If I were u I would by the D4, a purpose built Rwd drift car and have to do no modifications. Buy the car that's made for Rwd! I would get a yd2 if I had the money.
Thanks for the advice .
