HPI’s hot new rally car chassis just got a little hotter. HPI is proud to announce the new Ken Block Edition WR8 Flux. The 4WD 1/8th scale radio controlled platform for this asphalt shredding monster is capable of reaching speeds of up to 60 mph! The Ready To Run kit features a highly detailed scale replica Ken Block Gymkhana Five Ford Fiesta body, replica Gymkhana tarmac tires and replica Fifteen52 wheels. It’s powered by a 4000Kv HPI Flux Vektor motor, 2S/3S LiPo capable HPI Flux Vapor Pro electronic speed control, full time 4WD shaft drive technology and sealed super tough adjustable gear differentials. It’s ready to fly over jumps and blast down the road just like Ken Block’s full sized car!
Flux Vektor 4000Kv Brushless Motor
The Flux Vektor 4000Kv motor delivers massive power with plenty of juice for instant acceleration and enough power to pull out of just about any sideways drift. Optional pinion gears are available to fine tune the speed and torque delivery! The brushless design assures maximum performance with nearly no maintenance required.
Flux Vapor Pro Speed Control
With the capacity to handle 2S and 3S LiPo power, the Flux Vapor Pro electronic speed control can take anything you can possibly throw at it and keep coming back for more! The Vapor Pro features an integrated cooling fan to keep it cool in the toughest of conditions and is reversible so you can back out of jams with ease.
TF-40 2.4 Ghz Radio System
Controlling the Ken Block WR8 Flux is easy with the HPI TF-40 2.4GHz radio system. No need to worry about changing crystals, the radio prevents frequency conflicts automatically. The TF-40 pistol grip transmitter features adjustments for steering trim, throttle trim, steering dual rate, end points, servo reversing switches, low battery indicator and a 3rd channel for optional accessories. A sealed waterproof SF-10W steering servo is included!
Adjustable Gear Diffs
Sealed adjustable front, center and rear gear differentials and silicone oil-filed center differential for high traction and drivetrain protection.
Rally Tuned Suspension Arms
Fully adjustable suspension arms features droop screw, multiple shock mounting positions and structural reinforcement for increased durability. New mudguards are held securely in place via two button head screws while the mud guards themselves protect the shock shafts from debris in order to promote increased seal longevity.
Fully adjustable silicone oil filled shocks dampen the bumps and is completely tunable for on road or off road terrain.
The 3mm aluminum chassis is the foundation of a tough and durable racing machine, and features composite braces front and rear, cool silver anodizing and countersunk screws on the bottom for zero interference going over obstacles. The dirt guards keep the worst mud and dirt from getting into the chassis and protect the chassis as well.
High Efficiency 4WD
The WR8 FLUX is equipped with a shaft drivetrain. It also includes three oil-filled gear diffs with bevel gears, a full-time 4WD drivetrain supported by rubber-sealed ball bearings, high-strength steel driveshafts, axles and much more!
Replica Tarmac Wheels and Tires
The Ken Block Edition HPI WR8 features a set of officially licensed Pirelli tarmac tires and Fifteen52 scale wheels.
