Fully Tunable chassis and suspension The Sprint 2 Sport is the ideal club racer and is a great entry into RC racing fun! Its chassis is almost indestructible and easy to drive, the electronics and drivetrain are virtually maintenance- and worry-free, and it also has all the race tuning features you need for a good set up on almost every racetrack. 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.
The stock settings right out of the box will give you great handling on almost every surface, and with the fully adjustable suspension you'll have control over all important settings including camber, toe-, ride height, Ackerman, springs and more – enough settings to fine-tune your car for low lap times! 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.
HPI Quality Electronics
The reliable and sturdy HPI TF-1 radio controls the RTR Sprint 2 Sport, giving you ultimate control in a realistically designed radio! The steering wheel design makes you feel as if you're actually driving the car, and the trigger-style throttle and brake controls provide you with finger-sensitive action when accelerating and stopping! 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!
15-Turn Firebolt Motor Giving the RTR Sprint 2 Sport the ability to get around the track fast is a 15-turn motor, the HPI Firebolt! This fixed-endbell motor has the grunt and power to give the RTR Sprint 2 Sport plenty of acceleration and high top speeds! With standard ‘bullet' connectors, the Firebolt can work with any electronic speed controller or can be replaced by a faster motor to give you even more speed and torque.
Choose Your Own Battery and Charger The Sport versions of the Sprint 2 feature all the electronics necessary to get running, except the car battery and charger. This allows you to choose the right batteries for your purposes: get a handful of packs for car park bashing, or arm yourself with high-voltage racing packs for top-speed lap attacks! You can also gear yourself up with a simple peak charger or a computerized fast charger, it's your choice! Ask at your hobby shop dealer for the best battery and charger for your needs.
Standard Electronics 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 RTR Sprint 2 Sport will accept any standard 540-size brushed or brushless motor, plus any type of 6-cell 7.2v RC battery pack, of either stick pack or side-by-side design, will fit in the chassis.
