HPI RS4 Sport 3 Touring CarHPI Racing introduces the new RS4 Sport 3 RC touring car chassis! The RS4 Sport 3 features a fully enclosed shaft drive system, metal geared 4wd drivetrain, sealed tunable metal geared differentials, optimized double wishbone suspension, threaded adjustable oil filled coil over shocks and sealed ball bearings throughout. The HPI RS4 Sport 3 will first be released with three body options, in both brushless powered Flux and slip sliding Drift versions. The new bodies include the Falken Tire Porsche 911 GT3 RSR, Fatlace Subaru BRZ and the fifteen52 BMW M3 E30. Check out the pictures after the jump!

RS4 Sport 3
The RS4 Sport 3 features the classic BMW E30 M3, the BMW M-model that spawned a legion of imitators and launched BMW into the minds of sports car fans around the world. It’s also fitted with replica white fifteen52 Turbomac wheels wrapped with great-looking and grippy HPI street tires, so it’s ready to take to the streets right out of the box!

The HPI Firebolt 15-turn motor powers the RS4 Sport 3, and it’s controlled by a waterproof HPI speed controller for reliable and trustworthy operation. An enclosed box houses the 2.4GHz radio receiver, ensuring that you have constant control through the HPI pistol-grip steering wheel transmitter.

RS4 Sport 3 Drift
The first RS4 Sport 3 Drift features the amazing-looking Subaru BRZ, a super-popular sports car and phenomenal drift machine. Fitted with replica silver-colored Yoshihara Champion wheels wrapped with Falken Azenis RT615K HPI T-Drift tires, the hard compound tires means the RS4 Sport 3 Drift can get sideways extremely easy for instant drift action!

The HPI Firebolt 15-turn motor powers the RS4 Sport 3, and it’s controlled by a waterproof HPI speed controller for reliable and trustworthy operation. An enclosed box houses the 2.4GHz radio receiver, ensuring that you have constant control through the HPI pistol-grip steering wheel transmitter.

RS4 Sport 3 Flux
The first RS4 Sport 3 Flux features the #17 Porsche 911 GT3 RSR driven by Bryan Sellers, Wolf Henzler and Nick Tandy for the Falken Tire racing team, one of the top race teams in the GT Class of the legendary American Le Mans Series. The iconic shape of the Porsche 911 combined with the jaw-dropping ‘urban camo’ look and stylized shark-mouth make for the perfect head-turning look for the fastest version of the all-new RS4 Sport 3. Finishing the race car look are a set of our extra-wide (31mm and 35mm) replica BBS wheels fitted with matching replica slick Falken Azenis racing tires!

Propelling the RS4 Sport 3 to speeds over 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.

The drivetrain of all the HPI 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. Bevel gear diffs at each end of the car transfer power from the driveshaft to the dogbones and axles that drive each wheel. The entire drivetrain, including the pinion and spur gears, central driveshaft and gear diffs, is completely sealed to prevent dirt, rocks and debris from damaging or binding the drivetrain.

On the opposite side of the chassis to the motor, speed controller and servo, the battery box is large enough to fit any standard battery size, even nimh 7-cell batteries, held in place by a large hook-and-loop strap. The battery box is also adjustable, so you can decide if you want more traction and move the battery towards the rear of the car, or more steering by moving the battery towards the front.

The suspension of the HPI RS4 Sport 3 uses the race-proven double-wishbone suspension design that real racing cars use, so not only does it look realistic and cool, it’s also instantly familiar for racers to get used to. To control the bumps and gradients that the car will drive over, the RS4 Sport 3 is fitted with composite coil over style oil-filled shock absorbers, just like what you’d see on a real sports car. Tuning the suspension is made possible with alternate shock mounting locations, and many options such as springs, aluminum shocks and carbon fiber shock towers will be available for anyone wanting to make this into a formidable club racer.
