Choose Your Favorite Replica Body!
When you’re customizing your RS4 Sport 3 Creator Edition, a crucial step in getting the right look is deciding on the right body! It doesn’t matter if you’re going to build up a muscle car, import, drift or racing car, HPI Racing has a massive selection of amazing replica bodies to choose from!
Add a Set of Custom Wheels
Next, you'll want to choose the right wheel and tire combination – and HPI Racing has a huge selection to choose from! From vintage to modern, shiny chrome to bright green, we’ve got you covered with an amazing array of awesome wheels!
Wrap the Wheels with Performance Tires
With the perfect set of wheels fitted, you'll want to get tires to match what you plan to do! Are you going to drift, race or just show off? It doesn't matter where you're driving, HPI Racing has all types of tires for all types of cars!
Add Your Own Electronics!
Getting your RS4 Sport 3 Creator Edition moving is super easy, since it just a few things to start driving. For complete control, install the HPI #120042 TF-41 radio set and your choice of HPI servo - we suggest the #120019 HPI SS-30MGWR or the #110650 HPI SS-40WP servos for their high power rating and protection from water. You can also fit any standard-size RC electronics in the chassis, including low-profile racing servos!
Choose How Much Power to Strap In!
You have plenty of options when it comes to power, also! If you're just starting out with RC, you won't need tons of power, so an HPI motor combination like the #114712 SC-3SWP2 speed controller is ideal for brushed motors like the #1144 Saturn 27T or #1146 Firebolt 15T, which get the car moving quick enough to have some fun.
If you're a total speed freak and are ready for the extreme power of 3S brushless power, the RS4 Sport 3 is ready for just about anything that you can fit! If you're an experienced RC driver, we suggest the #112850 HPI Flux MMH-4000KV motor with the waterproof #112851 HPI Flux EMH-3S - this option will easily get the car over 60mph (100km/h)! ...can YOU handle the power!?
The unique RS4 Sport 3 Creator Edition features a fully pre-built RS4 Sport 3 chassis, which is the latest on-road car design from the minds at HPI Racing! The factory-assembled chassis features a huge amount of high-end features that make it the best on-road car choice for anyone new to RC, coming back to the hobby after a break, or RC experts looking to add a new car to their collection.
With full-time 4WD and heavy-duty gear differentials front and rear for excellent traction and control, a completely sealed and highly efficient shaft drivetrain, coil-over shock absorbers and racing suspension, the RS4 Sport 3 has tons of features to make it the ideal platform to get your creativity on the road! Just check out all the fantastic features that come with every RS4 Sport 3!
One-Piece Molded Chassis
The RS4 Sport 3 main chassis is formed from a single piece of reinforced plastic and features the drivetrain tunnel molded right down the middle, just like a real car. It's a step beyond any plastic tub chassis car available today.
Low Profile Layout Design
One of the ways we gave the RS4 Sport 3 the best possible handling was to make sure all the components fit as low as possible in the chassis. This gives the car an amazingly low center of gravity for enhanced cornering capabilities.
The drivetrain of the RS4 Sport 3 features extra-strong metal gears in both front and rear differentials, ball bearings and metal driveshaft and axle parts. This means it can hold up to the power of super-powerful brushless systems using up to 3S LiPo power! Talk to your hobby shop service people to help decide what electronic speed controller would be best for you!
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.
Full-Time Four-Wheel Drive
The RS4 Sport 3 features full-time four-wheel drive to give you the most control and precision on the road or track. All four wheels are driven by heavy duty gear differentials at the front and rear, just like a real car. The extra traction gives you increased acceleration and cornering control for maximum confidence and fun.
Sealed Shaft Drivetrain
The drivetrain of all the RS4 Sport 3 models features the motor mounted longitudinally in the molded chassis, next to the long driveshaft that goes down the center of the car. The entire drivetrain, including the central driveshaft and gear diffs, is completely sealed to prevent dirt, rocks and debris from damaging or binding the drivetrain. The driveshaft, diffs and axles spin on ball bearings to maximize drivetrain efficiency.
The central driveshaft that connects the front and rear differentials is easily accessed from underneath the chassis. This allows the drivetrain to be completely sealed to protect it from rocks and debris no matter where you may want to drive your car.
Easy Access Differentials
Getting to the differentials for quick adjustments is a matter of removing just 4 screws - this allows you to pop out the diff and change the grease, check the gears or just give it a general service.
4-Gear Metal Diffs
Bevel gear differentials at each end of the car transfer power from the driveshaft to the dogbones and axles that drive each wheel. The all-metal construction allows the drivetrain to withstand powerful brushless motors for easy upgrading in the future. Rubber-sealed ball bearings support the differentials and each diff can be tuned independently by changing the diff grease.
Option: Diff Spool
The optional diff spool removes all diff action for direct traction and braking action from your trigger finger straight to the wheels.
Double-Wishbone Fully Adjustable Suspension
The suspension of the RS4 Sport 3 uses the race-proven double-wishbone suspension design, similar to a full scale modern race car. You’ll be able to control the anti-squat and anti-dive of the front and rear arms using the standard pivot blocks, and the option parts allow you to adjust the sweep and toe angles. You'll also be able to easily change the roll center front and rear with the racing-style vertical ballstud mounting on both the inner and outer camber link mounts. Multiple shock mounting positions provide a full range of shock suspension angle adjustment to suit different road conditions.
MULTIPLE SHOCK POSITIONS
Option: Carbon Fiber Shock Towers
The option pair of carbon fiber shock towers not only look amazing, but also adds extra stiffness to the suspension for optimal performance. The carbon fiber material is extra-lightweight which lowers the center of gravity on the RS4 Sport 3 as well.
Oil-Filled Threaded Shocks
The RS4 Sport 3 is fitted with a set composite coilover-style oil-filled shocks, just like what you'd see on a real race car. The fully adjustable shocks are tunable to provide the optimum chassis performance on a wide variety of road surfaces. The ride height is quickly adjustable by using the threaded shock collars. Further tuning adjustments are also possible by changing the springs and shock oil weight.
Option: Anodized Aluminum Threaded Shocks
For optimum performance, you'll want a set of anodized aluminum threaded shocks that are machined to perfection. The full anodized aluminum threaded shock body, aluminum shock collar, aluminum top and bottom caps will allow you to make the most precise tuning adjustments.
Tough Front End Suspension
The RS4 Sport front end uses the strong C-hub style suspension seen on the latest RC touring cars, with a vertical ball stud camber mount that lets you change the front end roll center – which is a critical racing adjustment that allows the RS4 Sport 3 to be a step above other sport-level RC touring cars. The suspension arm also features multiple shock mounting holes for easy shock angle adjustment.
Tunable Rear Suspension
The rear hub is fitted with a vertical ball stud style adjustment that allows easy adjustment of the rear roll center. Moving the ball stud up or down with the optional spacers changes the traction characteristics of the rear end as the car goes through the turns. The suspension arm also features 3 different shock mounting holes for easy shock angle adjustment.
Option: CVD Driveshafts
The optional all in one CVD drive shafts greatly increases the precision and efficiency of the entire driveline and steering for maximum driving performance.
Option: Adjustable Camber Link Turnbuckles
The option set of adjustable turnbuckles will allow you to quickly fine tune the camber setting of your RS4 Sport 3 for optimum performance.
Double Bellcrank Steering
The performance tested adjustable double bell crank system provides optimum steering precision at all speeds. A metal drag link plate connects the cranks for extra durability, the additional drag link mounting positions also allows for Ackermann angle adjustments.
Rugged Spring-Loaded Servo Saver
The RS4 Sport 3 includes an adjustable multipiece cam-style servo saver, which protects the servo from crash damage. In the event of a crash or collision, the front wheels usually take a big portion of the blow and transmits the impact directly to the steering servo. The strong spring-loaded cam action of the servo saver is designed to absorb this force and protect the servo gears from the impact!
Aluminum Motor Mount
The cast aluminum cam-style motor mount holds the motor in place for a secure pinion/spur connection. Two screws hold the cam firmly in position on the mount, and cooling fins on the lateral support aid heat dissipation to keep the motor running as efficiently as possible.
Rear End Chassis Diffuser
The built-in rear-end chassis diffuser element smooths out the airflow underneath the chassis for maximum aero efficiency.
Metal-Shielded Ball Bearings
The RS4 Sport 3 is fully fitted with a set of metal-shielded ball bearings for maximum efficiency. The metal shields keep the dust away from the internals while the smooth precision bearings provides for optimum power delivery from the power source out into the driveline.
Rugged Front Bumper
To protect the front suspension, chassis and body from impacts big and small, an extra thick foam bumper is securely fastened to the front of the RS4 Sport 3.
Customize Your Look
A huge variety of option bodies, wheels and tires from HPI lets you fully customize the style of your RS4 Sport 3 to suit your style.
Adjustable Height Body Mounts
The adjustable height body mounts let you fit any 1/10 scale touring car body from HPI Racing on to the RS4 Sport 3 chassis. All you need to do is adjust the front and rear body mounts to allow the wheels and chassis elements to fit properly underneath the body. Body pins hold the mounts in place, and the multiple mounting hole positions allow you to fine-tune the exact body fitment.
You can fit any 1/10th scale touring car body from HPI Racing onto the RS4 Sport 3, from hot hatches to super cars, pick-up trucks to super touring racers. All you need to do is adjust the body mounts front and rear to allow the wheels to fit underneath the body properly. A simple system using body pins hold the mounts in place, and you can fine-tune the fit to get the exact ride height you want.
