Last fall, Subaru opened up ordering for these 1/18th scale Micro RS4 RC replicas of the #81 Bucky Lasek and #11 Sverre Isachsen Subaru PUMA Global Rallycross Team Subaru Impreza WRX STI! Built by HPI Racing, these little cars are highly detailed and feature full time 4WD ready to run chassis and 2.4 GHz radio system. HPI used to offer a 2004 WRX STI sedan body for this size (which has been discontinued) so it's good to have a Subaru back in the lineup.
Popular driver/rival Ken Block also has his Hoonigan Rally Car already in the lineup in multiple formats, so it'd be neat to race the Subarus up against other Global RallyCross opponents! Ken's car is available to the public to purchase in both the Micro and Touring sizes whereas the PUMA Global Rallycross Team cars are only available in the Micro size through special order (for now).
