- True to Scale Ford Fiesta: Highly detailed scale replica Ken Block 2013 Global Rallycross Ford Fiesta 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.
- 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 Global Rallycross Wheels & Gymkhana Tires: This wheel and tire combo is the ultimate in scale realism!
HPI makes it as easy as possible to get into RC off-road action.
