Featuring the Classic
Ford GT Heritage Edition!
The amazing Ford GT helped launch the "retro classics" era of modern supercars, and now you can get it on the superb HPI Racing RS4 Sport 3 chassis - and already painted in its ultimate classic racing livery colors! Fitted with color-matching wheels, this car is an immediate head-turner and is ready to hit amazing top speeds thanks to its HPI FLUX power!
The RS4 Sport 3 FLUX features full-time shaft driven 4WD, a fully sealed drivetrain, waterproof 2.4 GHz electronics/radio gear, fully independent double wishbone suspension and adjustable oil-filled shocks so itís Ready to Rock in any condition. Propelling the RS4 Sport 3 to speeds over 113km/h (70mph) is the Flux MMH-4000KV motor, controlled by the waterproof FLUX EMH-3S LiPo-ready speed controller. An enclosed box houses the 2.4GHz radio receiver, ensuring that you have constant control through the HPI pistol-grip steering wheel transmitter.
Underneath the detailed replica body 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, coil-over 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 ready to run, so all you have to do is PLUG IN AND DRIVE!
Easy to Drive with a Real Steering Wheel Controller!
The HPI Racing RS4 Sport 3 is super-easy to drive and get familiar with Ė all you have to do is plug in the included battery and switch on the radio, then the car. Itís that easy! To drive the car, simply pick up the controller with your left hand, put your left index finger into the trigger area, and then put your right hand on the steering wheel Ė itís as natural as driving a real car! Turn the wheel to go left and right, and gently pull on the trigger with your left index finger to go forwards. To stop the car, gently push away from you with your left index finger - then release and push away again to go into reverse. It takes seconds to get used to this easy operation, and pretty soon you'll be racing with your friends!
Real Rubber Tires and Competition Wheels
The HPI Racing RS4 Sport 3 features a set of treaded rubber tires for maximum grip on just about every paved surface. You'll get great acceleration, braking and cornering performance from these semi-slick, grippy rubber tires! The tires are molded in a durable, long-wearing rubber compound that will give you a long life for hours of fun and enjoyment. Each tire is securely glued to a cool-looking competition style wheel, molded from flexible yet firm plastic. The color is molded permanently into the plastic, so it'll still look great even after any crashes or scrapes! If you want to customize your RS4 Sport 3, you can always swap out or replace the wheels and the tires mounted to them, just like a real car!
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.
3S 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, your model shop will be able to provide one.
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.
HPI Flux Technology for Ultra-Fast Speeds
What sets apart the RS4 Sport 3 Flux from our other offerings is the HPI Flux brushless power installed in every Flux-powered machine. The RS4 Sport 3 Flux is fitted with the awesome Flux MMH-4000 motor, one of our most powerful motors for 1/10th scale cars. Thanks to the robust Flux EMH-3S speed controller, you can strap in your choice of 2S or 3S LiPo power (or a 7.2v-8.4v NiMH battery with a Dean's plug) to give the car an unbelievable power out of the turns and speeds of up to 70mph (124km/h) on the straight, when using optional gearing!
*To achieve 70mph you will need the 114569 - HIGH SPEED GEAR SET and 106401 - PLAZMA 11.1V 3200mAh 35C LiPo Battery Pack
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.
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.
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. Youíll 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.
