RS4 Sport 3
Featuring the Amazing and Thrilling
The full-size Hoonicorn RTR is the amazing car featured in Ken Block's Gymkhana SEVEN video that sent the motorsport fans into a frenzy - and now YOU can have a 1/10th scale version to drive yourself! Replicating the chopped, slammed and massaged look of the real 1965 Ford Mustang the Hoonicorn RTR is based on, the official HPI Racing replica version features the same gigantic supercharger air scoop, same paint scheme and even the same wheels as the real thing! With a high-traction full-time shaft 4WD providing the go power, this electric-powered version will let you pull off the same wild action as Ken Block himself - in 1/10th the size!
There will only ever be one Hoonicorn RTR - but now YOU could be driving the official scale radio-control replica!
The full-size Hoonicorn RTR is a totally custom, all-out drift machine that was designed by Formula Drift champion Vaughn Gittin Jr.'s RTR design studio and built by ASD Motorsports over 2 years to exacting specifications. It's fitted with a monstrous 410 cubic inch V8 putting out nearly 850 horsepower at a screaming 9000RPM. The engine is mated to a 6-speed Dakar Rally-spec transmission and 4WD drivetrain, with a completely custom adjustable suspension, and 3-piece fifteen52 wheels wrapped with super-wide 18-inch tires made in a custom compound just for Ken Block himself. You can read about the inspiration and design of the one-of-a-kind Hoonicorn RTR in this Speedhunters special article by Vaughn Gittin Jr!
fifteen52 R43 Replica 3 Piece Wheels
Custom-forged and machined by the custom wheel experts at fifteen52, the amazing 3-piece R43 wheels are replicated in exacting 1/10th scale directly from the original CAD files, so each and every Hoonicorn RTR replica has the perfect look and street stance. The real 18" x 10.5" wheels are made from machined forged 6061 aluminum centers and forged stepped & polished lips, while the replica is molded in high-impact nylon in a custom gold color.
Replica Hoonicorn Tires
295/30/18 - magic numbers that give the technical side of Ken Block's full-size hoops that are fitted to all four corners of the Hoonicorn RTR. But numbers can't tell the whole story - especially when these tires are made in a custom compound especially for Ken Block himself! The replica tires look exactly like the real thing: extra-wide, semi-slick and super-cool! The scale tires are molded in a durable, long-wearing rubber compound that gives enough grip for awesome acceleration!
Official Replica of the Amazing, Custom
Taking the full-size Hoonicorn RTR with its handmade custom body and making it 1/10th scale was a major challenge for the HPI design team, but after months of hard work with scale drawings and hundreds of pictures of the real car, we're proud to call the 1/10th scale Hoonicorn RTR one of HPI's finest achievements. The replica wheels were even made with the help of the original fifteen52 CAD files to replicate their Ken Block special R43 wheels to complete the Hoonicorn's look, and each wheel is wrapped in a scale replica extra-wide semi-slick rubber tires.
Underneath all this detail and awesomeness is the RS4 Sport 3 chassis, the latest scale touring car chassis from HPI Racing! The HPI RS4 Sport 3 chassis features full-time 4WD, a completely sealed and highly efficient shaft drivetrain, coilover shock absorbers plus waterproof electronics. The fully contained drivetrain means there are no exposed gears, belts or drivetrain parts to get stuck with rocks or dirt. The car is completely assembled and fitted with the 1965 Ford Mustang Hoonicorn RTR body and fifteen52 wheels right out of the box, so all you have to do is PLUG IN AND DRIVE!
2S LiPo CAPABLE
The RS4 Sport 3 features a versatile electronic speed controller that can be used with modern lithium-polymer (LiPo) or nickel-metal hydride (NiMH) batteries. Please note a LiPo adapter plug is not included. If running a LiPo battery with a Deans (T-Plug) connector, you will need this adapter: RCE1600
Fits a Wide Variety of Batteries
The RS4 Sport 3 chassis can fit lithium-polymer and nickel-cadmium packs of various sizes, including the extra-long 7-cell Ni-MH packs. Whatever your power requirements, it can hold it all! A thick hook-and-loop strap holds the pack securely in place, and a simple battery block screws into place to allow you to adjust the weight distribution forward or backward for extra steering or acceleration.
Rear End Chassis Diffuser
The built in rear end chassis diffuser element smooths out the air flow underneath the chassis for maximum aero efficiency.
