RS4 Sport 3 goes Classic with this Replica
BMW Warsteiner Touring Car

We're delighted to announce this new edition RS4 Sport 3 BMW M3 E30 draped in the famous BMW Warsteiner livery and a tribute to the Schnitzer Motorsport machine piloted by Roberto Ravaglia to many years of success - Notably the World Touring Car Championship win in 1987!

With so many fantastic machines running the illustrious BMW livery, it didn't take us long to settle on which version to replicate, as every true Touring Car fan will know the name Roberto Ravaglia, winner of Spa 24hr, DTM and many others.

Under the hood, this 1/10th scale classic BMW is built on the fan favourite HPI Racing Touring Car chassis, the RS4 Sport 3. With 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, you'll be ready to shred in any condition.

Completing the car is a set of BBS RS Mesh wheels, each wrapped in our tried and tested 26mm SPEC-GRIP rubber tires for fantastic acceleration, braking and cornering performance on any surface



2.4Ghz Radio System

Easy to Drive with a Real Steering Wheel Controller!

The HPI Racing RS4 Sport 3 is super-easy to drive and get familiar with all you have to do is plug in the included battery and switch on the radio, then the car. Its 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 its 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 - hold it there to go into reverse. It takes seconds to get used to this easy operation, and pretty soon you'll be racing with your friends!



STUNNING REPLICA BBS WHEELS
The RS4 SPORT 3 Warsteiner BMW E30 runs on stunning replica, BBS RS Mesh wheels, synonymous with the early 80's BMW M series cars. Our 1/10 versions feature highly detailed and strong mesh spokes with details of the originals iconic two piece design completed by a painted finish in Gold and Silver.

HPI SPEC-GRIP TIRES FOR MAX TRACTION
Each wheel is wrapped in our tried and tested 26mm SPEC-GRIP rubber tires complete with multi condition tread and high traction rubber "K" compound 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.



Replica Classic BMW M3 E30 Warsteiner Body
The famous three stripe racing liveries have donned BMW's race cars since the 1970s have become iconic to the M
brand through today. The blue stands for BMW, red for motorsport and violet for the unique combination of
the two. Piloting this Warsteiner branded car, Roberto Ravaglia is one of the most successful racing drivers of this era and winner of seven titles in four different championships
and every detail of his World beating 1987 car has been replicated for this special edition of the 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.


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.


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.
Bottom-Access Driveshaft

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.



Option Parts
:
Carbon Fiber Driveshaft Cover
You can easily replace the stock driveshaft cover on the bottom of the chassis with a carbon fiber cover that provides extra stiffness and extra-cool looks.


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. Youll 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


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 fully 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.




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.






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.



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 1/10th 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.


Body Choices

You can fit any 1/10th scale touring car body from HPI Racing onto the RS4 Sport 3, from hot hatches to supercars, pick-up trucks to supertouring 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.


Comprehensive Instruction Manual

All HPI Racing kits include a detailed multi-language instruction manual. Exploded diagrams and extensive information about your RS4 Sport 3 ensures that you have the know how when it comes to maintaining and upgrading your kit.
