The Sprint 2 Flux is the perfect entry into RC racing fun! Its chassis is almost indestructible and easy to drive, but it also has all of the racing features you need for a perfect set-up on most racetracks. The "out of the box" settings include fully adjustable suspension with control over important settings like camber, caster, toe in, ride height, Ackerman, springs etc. to fine tune your car for faster lap times! The RTR Sprint 2 Flux takes full advantage of all of the benefits of electric power; it's quiet, clean, powerful, and truly plug-and-play! Blazing power comes from a Flux Warp brushless motor, controlled by a Flux Motiv electronic speed control for complete control over throttle, brakes, and reverse. HPI Flux brushless technology delivers extremely high efficiency and power, for longer run time and faster speeds. The constant maintenance and short lifespan of normal electric motors are virtually eliminated by the HPI Flux brushless technology, making electric racing easier and more fun than ever. The Sprint 2 Flux chassis delivers excellent handling. A belt driven 4WD system guarantees smooth power transfer and high grip on a wide variety of paved surfaces. Plus, the race-proven suspension with oil filled shock absorbers offers racing features you wouldn't expect from a club-level touring car: adjustable camber and toe-in links, extra long upper links with new multiple mounting positions, adjustable Ackerman settings, adjustable droop, different caster and toe in blocks included in the kit... to name but a few. With a big foam front bumper, a reinforced chassis, upper deck and shock towers you'll see that the Sprint 2 Flux can take the abuse of racing on the track and on the street! All of the important chassis and suspension parts are made from high quality, high impact nylon which makes the Sprint 2 Flux extra tough! The fully ball bearing equipped, dual belt, 4 wheel drive transmission with only one geared step (48dpi motor pinion to spur gear) is very efficient and capable of handling high power brushless electric motors.
With sealed gear differentials front and rear, you never have to worry about time-intensive diff rebuilds on your Sprint 2 Flux. 8 rubber sealed ball bearings at the wheel axles and 6 more ball bearings at all other axles don't wear out like metal or plastic bushings and provide lower friction and more speed. The strong and flexible HPI polycarbonate body shell resists cracking and other damage! It comes straight out of the box ready to go? painted, trimmed, mounted, with all of the realistic decals are pre-applied, it can't get easier than that!

The radio transmitter features interchangeable frequency crystals, servo reverse switches, a retractable aerial with sliding cover, easy access to radio adjustments and simple battery replacement. Taking the signals from the transmitter, the HPI RF-1 receiver uses standard RC connectors to send your control signals to the SF-1 steering servo, which controls the steering, and the forward/reverse SC-15 speed controller, which handles the throttle, brake and reverse commands to the Firebolt 15-turn motor. You get long-range, reliable connections between your transmitter and car with the RF-1 and dependable control from the SF-1 and SC-15! Choose Your Own Battery and Charger The Sprint 2 Flux features all the electronics necessary to get running, except the car battery and charger.
