Use Standard Electronics!
With the Micro RS4 kit, there is no need for specialized miniature electronics.
The Micro RS4 was designed from the beginning to use standard servos,
electronic speed controls and receivers. Everything is powered with standard
batteries, you decide whether you want long runtimes with AA batteries
(up to 40 minutes!), or lightweight performance with AAA batteries. The
ingenius battery holder design adjusts for either size battery!
The entire Micro RS4 drivetrain rides on a set of ball bearings for efficiency
and speed, and both ends of the car use gear differentials for great handling!
The suspension uses scaled-down cantilever coil-over shocks for precise
steering response and tuning ability. Steering is provided by a standard-size
servo connected directly to the steering hubs. The rear axle is supported
by a single shock, which can be tuned with optional springs. An impact-absorbing
bumper protects the front suspension parts from race damage.
In addition to the number of tuning changes which can be made on the Micro
RS4 (optional tires, front and rear spring changes and motor gearing options),
our designers have provided several more optional adjustments that racers
will love! The wheelbase is adjustable between 2 lengths, the width of
the car is adjustable (3 different widths in the front, 4 in the rear!),
plus the body mounts are adjustable front and rear! No cutting of the
body posts is required to fit different bodies. A wide selection of bodies
will be able to fit the car easily.
Scale R/C Realism
at its Finest!
Because of the groundbreaking wheelbase and width adjustability of the
Micro RS4, we will be able to make polycarbonate bodies that are true
to the scale of the real car, giving model car enthusiasts a real reason
to run their favorite race cars against each other! We've even provided
disc brake decals for the wheel hubs, as well as three different types
of wheels in each kit! Mesh style, 5-spoke and 6-spoke wheels will be
included with each kit, so Micro RS4 owners can choose the type of wheel
they like best for their car.
We offer a wide range of option parts for the Micro RS4, for racers who
must have the coolest and fastest Micro around! A rear ball differential
option is already available for improved handling, as well as a front
one-way differential for faster steering and cornering speeds. Soft compound
tires for racers on concrete and wood surfaces are out now to improve
rear traction and lessen steering. Rechargeable battery packs are on the
way to make charging and using the batteries simple and fun!
The Micro RS4 packs
a lot of fun in a small package!
The Micro RS4 is the R/C car for everyone! With features normally found
only on larger scale R/C cars and the driving enjoyment that comes from
playing with smaller cars, the Micro RS4 is a great mix of fun and performance!
Tuning options and hop-up parts will satisfy the racer, while the scale
looks and ease of driving will satisfy the scale enthusiast!
The HPI TX-2 radio system included with HPI RTR Micro kits is packed with
features! The super narrowband AM transmitter and receiver work together
to let you precisely control your car. Six different crystal choices let
you race with your friends!
The radio transmitter is comfortable to hold and features
a battery strength indicater, letting you know when the batteries need
to be replaced or charged. The transmitter also features a retractable
antenna, steering and throttle trim dials (for fine adjustments to center
the servos), plus a dual rate adjustment for the steering! Dual rate is
very important because it lets you adjust how far the steering servo turns
the front wheels left and right.
The strong steering servo and Micro Pro Control ESC are
also pre-installed in each HPI RTR Micro kit, already plugged into the
standard size super narrowband AM receiver. A convenient on/off switch
is also included!
If a warranty issue is ever encountered, Airtronics handles
all USA returns and repairs for the radio, HPI USA handles any issues
with the Micro Pro control. Upgrades are also available from your local
Eight AA batteries are needed to fit in the transmitter.
