HPI Racing is well known by RC enthusiasts around the world for their amazing design and performance. Founded in 1986 by Tatsuro Watanabe with a mere $100 investment, Hobby Products International (HPI) started out by offering only option parts like tires, wheels and motors. The Uno motor series were among their most successful products, helping Masami Hiroska win his first IFMAR World Championship.  With this success Tatsuro was able to hire on a team of top designers who were responsible for creating a popular line of graphite parts for pan cars as well as award-winning touring car motors, but it wasn’t until 1994 that HPI branched out with their first car kit, a Super F1 buggy, now considered an iconic classic.
