New from HPI Racing is the powerful Nitro RS4 MT-2 18SS 1/10 scale truck. More power, more speed, and improved durabilitymake it one of the fastest 1/10 scale 4WD trucks available. We've loaded the Nitro MT 2 18SS with a long list of our most popular high performance option parts, making it our highest performance stadium truck ever.
|When I first started the design of the MT2 RTR, I wanted to
improve the quality and strength of the truck. As we progressed we
developed the suspension to improve the handling and make sure the
truck could perform well in all situations. When it came to
designing the SS, I wanted to take it even a step further
- a truck that could compete at the race track.
The heart of the truck is the powerful Nitro Star 18SS engine. Rated at 1.5 horsepower, the 18SS is a high torque, powerful engine with features that include aggressive porting, durable ABC construction, a large heat sink head, dual needle 6mm carburettor and a lightweight aluminium connecting rod. The large .18 cubic inch size gives it the punch and power that gives the Nitro MT 2 188SS a top speed in excess of 46 mph, with plenty of torque to easily handle the most extreme off-road conditions! But it’s not all about power, the 18SS engine is designed to be easy to start, easy to tune, and rock-steady reliable. It’s equipped with an easy to use recoil pullstarter and, for racing applications, can be bump started. A high flow tube header and dual chamber tuned pipe are mated to revised gearing, making the Nitro MT 2 18SS one of the most powerful 1/10 scale production trucks ever!
To handle the power, we've taken the proven long-stroke suspension and 4WD shaft drive system of the Nitro MT 2 and beefed it up with parts that are expensive hop-up parts on most trucks: heavy duty outdrives, heat treated differential gears, adjustable slipper clutch, heavy duty drive cups, universal joints, heavy duty axles and metal wheel hex hubs. Everywhere you look there are subtle changes that make the Nitro MT 2 18SS a serious machine. Adjustable stainless steel turnbuckles and steering joints are now standard equipment, as are high strength stainless steel hinge pins and alloy hinge pin braces. The unique universal joints found on the NMT 2 18SS feature an all-new “captured design” system that eliminates the set screw found on most universal dogbones, making them more reliable, easier to build, and making routine maintenance quick and easy. Our high grip “Dirt Bonz Jr.” tyres and high density foam inserts are included for excellent grip on dirt surfaces, mounted on race-inspired black wheels for a stealth “SS” look.
At the request of our customers, a larger 100cc fuel tank has been added. With nearly 35% more capacity than the previous 75cc tank, the new 100cc tank delivers extended run time. And, the new tank has been designed with a low profile, reducing the CG of the truck for excellent handling and jumping capabilities. For tuning consistency it's a primer-less design with a rubber o-ring sealed cap, internal fuel baffle, and a built-in ceramic fuel filter to help keep dirt and debris out of the carburettor. The Nitro MT 2 18SS is offered in kit form, making it a popular choice for hobbyists that enjoy the experience and satisfaction of building the truck themselves. It's provided with a clear Nitro MT-1 body that's pre-trimmed for easy mounting. Pre-cut vinyl decals and window masks are included, with all of the lights, grills and logos needed to make the truck look great. No radio or electronics are included, giving the owner the opportunity to add the high performance radio equipment of their choice. The Nitro MT 2 18SS takes the 1/10 scale 4WD stadium truck to the next level, give one a try! For a closer look at the features of the Nitro MT 2 18SS, check out it's features page!
