Default Mini Trophy Discontinued

On HPI's European site Mini Trophy is discountined. Why? This is a cool truck, why they stop the distribution in Europe? Is it means, that they stop the parts production? It would be suck for us.
On the USA site, i found this car as Desert Trophy, so may wont stop the truck, and the parts production.
I have known this is not a popular car, but i didn't expect that.

I'm not worried, HPI likes to discontinue a kit once a new version is out. Just like the MT2 RTR and MT2 18SS. They upgraded the RTR and discontinued the older version, and discontinued the 18SS to make the 18SS+. Since they have the Desert Trophy it makes sense that being HPI, they will discontinue the Mini Trophy. They do this all the time with the RS4 series and Savage series. Just go ahead and search on HPI's website at all the discontinued kits on there. Many of them are still technically produced, just with very small tweaks at a time.

They also just released a Flux version of the Mini Trophy as well, so I doubt its leaving for good anytime soon.

Yes, Wolf, you have a point there. I hope they start distributing of the new flux version soon.
