So you know you want to get into 1/8th off-road buggy racing, but you're not sure where to start? Here's the perfect solution! The Lightning 2 Sport has everything you need to get started, from a prebuilt racing chassis with pre-installed power factory engine to high quality electronics. A beefy 4mm thick 6061-series shock tower keeps things in control up front. Something this massive gives out the ‘I mean business' vibe! Front CVA axles improve effi ciency and the suspension action, while long-stroke coil-over shocks soak up the bumps and jumps. 22 degree hub carriers are set at the optimum angle for perfect off-road performance. Benefiting from the Lightning 2 Pro's ancestry, the Sport version features a low-profi le upper deck and fuel tank. The main chassis is kept stiff by an aluminium steering brace and front and rear chassis braces. The redesigned battery box keeps the receiver pack mounted lower in the chassis than previous designs. A bash guard on the exhaust stinger tip keeps mud out of the tip, preventing fl ameouts and damage to your tuned pipe. Our own tough 4.3cm3 (.26in3) engine is started by a simple and reliable pull start system, and breathes through a burly aluminium tuned pipe for maximum torque and top speed! The power is distributed to the front and rear diffs through a sealed centre differential. Everything spins on a set of ball bearings for optimal effi ciency. For maximum stopping power, you get a set of adjustable front and rear brakes! Keeping stones and dirt off everything is a custom-painted blue Lightning body shell, perfect for making a statement out on the track! A sway bar in the rear keeps things planted for improved grip in the turns. All this is wrapped up in a cool RTR package. With tough servos and proven HPI TF-3 narrowband AM radio gear installed, this is the ultimate off-road racing starter package!
