Introducing the HPI E10 Drift! The E10 is the latest RTR-spec touring and drift machine from HPI, and will dazzle you with its ease of use and great looks! The E10 Drift is a four-wheel drive, factory-assembled, fully prepared 1/10th scale drift car from the same world-renowned HPI design team that is famous for user friendliness, racer appeal and usability. Aimed squarely at the new or casual RC car hobbyist, the E10 Drift will amaze you with its easy driving qualities and graceful drift driving! Stunning Looks The first thing that will strike you about the E10 Drift is how great it looks on the outside. Amazing quality bodyshells, crafted to perfection by HPI's in-house craftsmen, are a trademark of HPI's commitment to quality. Unique wheels in today's latest JDM styles and realistic-looking drift tyres in long-lasting rubber compounds are great additions to enhance the realism of the E10 Drift. Each bodyshell supplied with the E10 Drift is painted in bright colours that you can see a mile away. These are the same bodyshells that concours winners around the world have used to win trophies and medals! Applied carefully to the outside of the bodyshell are fully detailed decals of headlights, tail lights, vents, scoops and grilles for a totally really look that will truly impress your friends. The body post holes and aerial opening are pre-drilled, meaning there is nothing for you to prepare after opening the box! Rolling on shiny, fashionable chrome wheels, each E10 Drift rolls on realistic treaded rubber special drifting tyres wrapped around bright chromed wheels that look fantastic rolling down the street! Looking inside the wheels, you will see brake discs that rotate with the wheel, and separate brake calipers that stay in place - details not included on any other RTR car! This final style touch helps set the E10 Drift apart from all the other contenders! HPI Quality RTR Gear From the beginning of HPI's RTR dominance, the equipment included in each HPI RTR kit has been the best equipment that anyone could ask for. With the E10 we do not stop this trend of excellence. Every HPI E10 car is equipped standard with a narrowband high frequency dual channel AM pistol grip radio. The realistic steering wheel feel of this type of radio encourages the RC beginner to think of the E10 as a real car driving around a race course, and the feel of pulling back on the throttle trigger is just like stomping on the accelerator of a real car! The HPI TF-1 radio transmitter features interchangeable frequency crystals, 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 and EN-1 electronic speed controller. The RF-1 receiver and SF-1 servo have been used in many HPI RTR kits over the past several years and have proven their reliability and endurance many times over! You'll get long-range, reliable connections between your transmitter and car with the RF-1 and dependable steering action from the SF-1 servo. The EN-1 is our latest electronic speed controller and features fully proportional throttle control as well as reverse. This means you have fine control over the acceleration of your car, so you won't experience any sudden throttle changes. With the reversing function you'll be able to back your way out of trouble, such as if you spin or crash and are facing a wall. Providing the electrical power to the car is a 1500mAh stick-type battery pack with a standard battery connector. This will give you plenty of run time for driving around an RC track, racing your friends or drifting in a car park! An overnight charger is also included which will safely and easily charge the battery to full capacity. Powering the E10 is the sturdy and reliable Saturn 27T motor with standard ‘bullet' type connectors. A 27-turn motor is powerful enough to provide any RC beginner with good acceleration and top speeds, but not so fast as to damage parts in a crash or cause you to lose control. Finally, because all of the electronics are standard-size RC components with standardized connectors, any or all of the components can be upgraded at any time, or moved into a different RC vehicle in the future. The E10 will accept any standard 540-size motor in the E10, and also any RC battery pack, of either stick pack or side-by-side design. Amazing Durability Beyond its great looks and dependable equipment, the next important function of any entry-level RTR car is to be tough! The E10 does this very well, absorbing all the abuse and damage you can throw its way. From the drivetrain and chassis to suspension and bodyshell, the E10 is strong, durable and long-lasting! The lightweight drivetrain features oversized driveshafts, shielded ball bearings and strong plastic parts to make it long-lasting and efficient. The motor is mounted on a unique cam motor mount that is marked for easy gear mesh alignment. A large cover protects the spur gear, and a snap-on cover keeps rocks away from the pinion and spur gear. The central driveshaft has longitudinal ribs to prevent excess flex, and is lightweight to provide maximum acceleration. The central driveshaft turns the front and rear sealed gear differentials. From the diffs, oversize outdrives spin thick dogbones to each wheel, providing power and grip for maximum four-wheel drive action! The suspension parts (wishbones, shock towers, uprights and hubs) are all made from thick, long-wearing durable plastic so you don't have to worry about making a few mistakes from time to time. A tough servo saver does the vital task of keeping the servo's internal gears intact, and thick steering arms connect the servo to the front steering knuckles to protect the many moving parts of the steering system. An extra-wide solid front bumper protects the car from really hard crashes, and a closed-cell foam bumper keeps the front of the body intact during light impacts. Protecting the rear of the car is cool venturi-style bumper that looks like it came right off a GT racing car! Finally, making maintenance and rebuilding even easier, the E10 doesn't use e-clips anywhere in its suspension, because the car uses a ‘captive hinge pin' design! Overall, the E10 is super-strong and extra-durable to withstand the rigours of driving on any kind of paved surface by RC drivers of any ability level! Great Performance With great looks, excellent electronics package and sturdy build, you might think that's all the E10 has to offer, however this car is a joy to drive! The E10 takes performance cues from previous HPI championship-winning cars and durable design elements and bring them all together for a total package that is fun to drive, tough and featuring great performance! The underside of the chassis is fully countersunk, which means it's completely flat for driving over smooth or rough tarmac, and no screws stick out to catch on any debris that might be on your driving surface. The strong tub shape helps keep rocks and other debris out of the chassis, keeping the car cleaner for easy maintenance. Giving you the widest range of power options, you can fit any standard 540-size motor in the E10 - these are the hobby motors you can find at any model shop. You can also fit any 5-cell or 6-cell battery in the car, of either hobby stick pack design or the racing side-by-side design. Finally, the E10 Drift is set up right out of the box for easy handling, optimised for easy drifting and light handling. It's easy and fun to learn driving your model car when it's the HPI E10! Easy repairs With famous HPI quality and support, plus proven HPI electronics, you will get a fantastic RTR value from the E10. Spare parts and replacements will be easily available through the HPI distribution network for years to come - this is no toy store car! Every piece of the car is replaceable, and ordering any spares can be done through your local model shop. Requires: 8 AA batteries
