If you had your eye on that sweet HPI 1969 Ford Mustang RTR-X we posted about back in 2012, but wanted something a little more noisy then you’re going to want to check out the new HPI RS4 EVO+ nitro version! With a stiff aluminum chassis, shaft driven 4WD and adjustable oil filled shocks, the Nitro RS4 3 Evo+ is a scaled-down race car for the street, the perfect foundation for a tire smoking muscle car like the real 1969 Mustang RTR-X!
This car is loaded with goodies: a 2.2hp HPI T3.0 engine fitted with an adjustable 2-speed transmission for ground-stomping acceleration and superfast top speeds, full-time 4WD for supreme control and acceleration, steel shaft drivetrain that lets you shrug off road debris that would halt a belt-drive car in its tracks, waterproof electronics so you don’t have to worry about wet conditions and a 2.4GHz radio system that lets you have worry-free fun!
Nitro Star T3.0 engine
The Nitro Star T3.0 engine is the powerhouse behind the impressive speed of the RTR Nitro RS4 3 Evo+ car. With 2.2 horsepower on tap combined with the adjustable 2-speed transmission, you can get off the starting line fast and reach immense top speeds in no time! The engine is started by a simple pullstarter system and is protected by the included 2-stage air filter, and the two-needle carburetor allows you to fine-tune the performance of the engine for variable weather conditions or different types of fuel.
Aluminum Tuned Pipe
To give the engine as much power as possible, a tuned exhaust system is installed to give the car as much low-end torque as possible, while allowing it to breathe as much as it needs to to get maximum revs for huge top speed!
Two Speed Transmission
The standard two-speed transmission gives you a killer combination of fast acceleration and massive top speed! It’s also easily adjustable so you can tune it for maximum speed attacks or for short, twisty circuits.
Tough Shaft Drive
The Nitro RS4 3’s reliable shaft drive powers the wheels through a system of ball-bearing supported shafts and axles, so you get the maximum power available from the T3.0 engine. You won’t have to worry about fragile belt drive systems getting stuck with rocks or pebbles!
A powerful disc brake system gives the car efficient and strong braking power for quick turns and avoiding danger. It’s easily adjustable to make the braking more or less intense, so you can dial in the braking force for the traction conditions you’re racing in.
Independent Dual Wishbone Suspension
Just like a real racing car, the Nitro RS4 3 features dual wishbones to provide all the suspension action, with a large lower A-arm and solid upper camber links. Oil-filled shocks with racing progressive springs control the movement of the arms, and are easily tunable – just like a full-size racer!
We make things extra easy for you to get driving quick. The car is completely assembled by professionals and ready to go right out of the box, so all you have to do is add fuel and batteries to get running!
2.4Ghz Radio System
HPI Ready-To-Run kits feature an easy to use, lightweight and robust 2.4GHz radio system to make the car as simple and fun to drive as possible. You can drive with all your friends with no interference and there’s even an electronic failsafe that stops the car if it ever loses radio signal!
Sealed Radio Box
The easily removable radio tray contains all the electronics for simple cleaning of the chassis, and keeps fuel and dirt away from the electronics. Body clips hold the tray securel in place and there’s plenty of room in the main compartment for the standard 4 AA battery holder or the optional #101936 rechargeable 5-cell ‘hump’ battery pack. Note: picture shows optional wheels and tires.
Performance Straight From The Box
HPI makes it as easy as possible to get into RC racing action. The RTR Nitro RS4 3 Evo+ is completely pre-built and ready to go right out of the box! Everything is assembled and tuned for you by professionals – diffs, shocks, suspension and more are perfect before you even open the package. You don’t have to do a thing to get going fast! HPI Ready-To-Run vehicles bring you the same high performance and quality that you’d expect from a high end RC kit but with the added convenience of being factory pre-assembled to the highest standards – giving you a high performance RC car straight from the box!
