      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

Suzuki Escudo Pikes Peak

Has there ever been a kit offered for this monster?

Even if not has any ever attempted to scratch build it or any other hill climb car? I did see some Escudo kits on eBay but not the race car.

I have had a slight obsession with this car since Gran Tourismo 3 (what can I say, I am only 30 and a part of the "Nintendo" generation)

The only Escudo's I'm aware of were the HPI 1/10 and "Super" Escudo bodies for their 1/10 Touring cars and their RS4 MT based "Super Nitro Rally" rally car. Unfortunately that no longer appears to be offered by HPI any more

Here's the 1/10 car.

and the "Super".

And yes, those are actually two different cars :)

Are they R/C cars?

Sorry, I am not familiar with HPI.

Either way they look awesome!

Yes, they are radio control, and I think they offered the body with the kits based off their electric 1/10 RS4 "touring sedan" and their "truck" based "Super" as well as selling them as service parts to anybody who wanted them are replacements for the above vehicles or their own non HPI vehicles that were of a similar size.
