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.
