This is the HPI Ken Block WR8 Flux Ford Fiesta 1/8 Scale WRC RTR Electric Rally Car with a TF-40 radio system. HPI is proud to introduce the action-packed partnership with famed international super star, Ken Block, and his Gymkhana Five edition Ford Fiesta H.F.H.V.. To kick off this partnership, HPI is releasing an exact scale replica of Ken Block's 650hp Gymkhana Five Ford Fiesta H.F.H.V. which was recently unleashed on the quiet streets of San Francisco in the latest edition of the widely popular Gymkhana video series. The 4WD 1/8th scale RC platform for this asphalt shredding monster is HPI's recently launched WR8 Flux with brushless motor technology, capable of reaching speeds of up to 60 mph! This Ready to Run kit features a highly detailed scale replica Ken Block Gymkhana Five Ford Fiesta H.F.H.V. body, replica tarmac Gymkhana tires and replica fifteen52 Tarmac wheels.
The HPI WR8 Flux is powered by a 4000Kv HPI Flux VEKTOR motor, 2S/3S LiPo capable HPI Flux VAPOR Pro electronic speed control, full time 4WD shaft drive technology and sealed super tough adjustable gear differentials. It's ready to fly over jumps and blast down the road just like Ken Block's full sized Ford Fiesta H.F.H.V. from Gymkhana Five.
- True to Scale Ford Fiesta: Highly detailed scale replica Ken Block Gymhkana Five Ford Fiesta H.F.H.V. body.
- Flux VAPOR Pro Speed Controller: With the capacity to handle 2S and 3S LiPo battery power, the Flux VAPOR Pro electronic speed control is able to handle the latest, most powerful batteries you can fit in the WR8 Flux. The VAPOR Pro features an integrated cooling fan to keep it cool in warm conditions, reverse so you can back out of jams with ease, and for maximum adjustability it's fully programmable with the optional USB Programming Kit (HPI100573).
- Flux VECTOR 4000kV Motor: The Flux VEKTOR 4000 motor delivers massive power - plenty of juice for instant acceleration and enough power to pull out of just about any sideways drift. Option pinion gears are available to fine-tune the speed and torque delivery. The brushless design assures maximum performance with nearly no maintenance required.
- HPI TF-40 2.4GHz Radio System: Controlling the Ken Block WR8 FLUX with Ford Fiesta H.F.H.V. is easy with the HPI TF-40 2.4GHz radio system. No need to worry about changing crystals, the radio prevents frequency conflicts automatically. The TF-40 pistol grip transmitter features adjustments for steering trim, throttle trim, steering dual rate, end points, servo reversing switches, low battery indicator and a 3rd channel for optional accessories.
- Waterproof SF-10W Servo: Sealed waterproof HPI SF-10W steering servo.
- Adjustable Gear Differentials: Sealed adjustable front, center and rear gear differentials and silicone oil-filled center differential for high traction and drivetrain protection.
- Rally Tuned Suspension Arms: Fully adjustable suspension arms features droop screw, multiple shock mounting positions and structural reinforcement for increased durability. Mudguards are held securely in place via two button head screws while the mud guards themselves protect the shock shafts from debris in order to promote increased seal longevity.
- Tunable Silicone Oil Filled Shocks: Fully adjustable silicone oil filled shocks dampen the bumps and are completely tunable for on road or off road terrain.
- 3mm Countersunk Aluminum Chassis: The 3mm aluminum chassis is the foundation of a tough and durable racing machine, and features composite braces front and rear, cool silver anodizing and countersunk screws on the bottom for zero interference going over obstacles. The dirt guards keep the worst mud and dirt from getting into the chassis and protect the chassis as well.
- High Efficiency Shaft 4WD Drivetrain: The WR8 Flux is equipped with the shaft drivetrain straight out of the Bullet nitro and Flux truck. Three oil-filled gear differentials with bevel gears, a full-time 4WD drivetrain supported by rubber-sealed ball bearings, high-strength steel driveshafts and axles, and much more deliver the power to the ground.
- Replica Tarmac Gymkhana Tires: Officially licensed by Pirelli - these tires are the ultimate in scale realism!
- Fully Licensed Replica fifteen52 Tarmac Wheels: True-to-scale tarmac fifteen52 wheels!
