HPI recently announced a new RC drifting body for 2012, the Nissan S13/240SX Dai Yoshihara Discount Tires/Falken Formula Drift unpainted 1/10 RC body. The new 200mm polycarbonate body is officially licensed by Nissan and will feature the full decal set for the ultimate replica . This body is molded from clear polycarbonate plastic for toughness and resilience in the roughest of conditions. All HPI bodies feature clear overspray film to keep paint and marks off the outside of the body, molded markings for easy body post drilling, pre-cut vinyl window masks, true-to-life decals and a full set of official Dai Yoshihara Discount Tires Falken 240SX! We are hoping to see this body come with light buckets, or atleast have the option available to purchase them separately. This body is expected to go on sale in the next 2-3 weeks along with a HPI Racing E10 RTR version. More pictures and information after the jump!

Daijiro Yoshihara (commonly known as Dai, born December 24, 1978, Tokyo, Japan) is one of the world’s best drifters in the motor sports of Drifting. With 10 years of competition under his belt, Dai has always been a thrill seeker and it was only natural for him to get into drifting. At the age of 11, Dai discovered the excitement of throwing his bicycle around corners at high speeds and skidding along the curbs in tight turns. At age 16, Dai got motorized and took to nearby mountains on his 400cc motorcycle. Finally at age 18, Dai got into his first car, a 1985 Toyota Corolla Levin. He soon fell in love and gained the passion for driving on windy roads in the local mountains of Japan. – Wikipedia
