Intense, Fuel-Powered
Ken Block Action!

You've seen it in Gymkhana 8, you've seen it in Terrakhana, and you've seen it racing in Gymkhana GRiD - Ken Block's jaw-droppingly cool color-shift Ford Fiesta ST RX43 racer is now available for you to drive away in a sweet 1/8th scale WR8 Nitro 3.0 version! HPI Nitro Star G3.0 power is able to propel this 485mm (19") long replica car from a standing start into wild racing action with a simple pull of the trigger, so it's the perfect way to copy Ken's epic performances with your friends!

Underneath the replica Ken Block Ford Fiesta ST RX43 body, the WR8 3.0 chassis is based on the HPI Bullet RC monster truck, which means it's massively tough and can take a real beating on- or off-road! The WR8 3.0 is powered by an easy-to-use and powerful Nitro Star G3.0 engine with all-aluminum construction and 32,000 max RPM, delivering power through the same tough bevel gear differentials and fully ball bearing-supported 4WD shaft drivetrain of the Bullet monster truck. With authentic rally suspension geometry, oil-filled dampers and extra-thick sway bars you'll have fabulous control on dirt or tarmac! Top it off with semi-slick tarmac tires and replica fifteen52 TurboMac and Turbo-Fan wheels and you've got an instant head-turner in your hands! 

The HPI Racing WR8 3.0 is crammed with features that enhance its durability anywhere you want to take it, including a high ground clearance, skidplate, foam front bumper, optimized rally-style suspension geometry, shock debris guards, mud deflectors on the chassis and much more. It's the ideal machine to race your friends on Gymkhana-style courses and multi-surface tracks, or anywhere you like!

Like all HPI Racing RTR (Ready-To-Run) cars, the WR8 3.0 is completely pre-built: all you have to do is open the box, install the batteries and add fuel and you're ready for awesome stunt action! HPI Plazma AA batteries are included for the transmitter and car, all you have to provide is RC nitro car fuel from your local RC model shop.

Custom Color-Shift Stars and Stripes Livery!

Sure to turn heads, the stunning stars and stripes on Ken's replica Ford Fiesta ST RX43 are achieved with actual custom paint! The paint is protected from scratches because it's applied at the factory on the inside of the body, allowing the amazing irridescent color-changing effect to shine through! 

 

2.4Ghz Radio System

Easy To Drive!
Just Pull The Trigger!

The HPI WR8 3.0 is super-easy to drive and get familiar with – all you have to do is install a battery, plug it in and switch on the radio and car. It’s that easy! To drive the car, simply pick up the controller with your left hand, put your left index finger into the trigger area, and then put your right hand on the steering wheel – it’s as natural as driving a real car! Turn the wheel to go left and right, and gently pull on the trigger with your left index finger to go forwards. To stop the car, gently push away from you with your left index finger to brake the car from insane top speeds to a gentle stop. It takes seconds to get used to this easy operation, and in no time at all you’ll be ripping off jaw-dropping moves, just like Ken Block in his nail-biting head-to-head races!

Image of wheels

Replica fifteen52 Wheels and Real Rubber Tires

For the ultimate in replica looks and fantastic performance, every HPI WR8 3.0 with Ken Block’s Ford Fiesta ST RX43 is fitted with replica fifteen52 Turbomac wheels in a matching color scheme. The wheels really help the car stand out as a scale replica, and for extreme performance, the wheels are wrapped with semi-slick HPI tires molded in real rubber. The grippy rubber compound helps the car stick to asphalt or tarmac for real racing action, and the treaded design gives you plenty of grip even on dusty paved surfaces!

 
 
 

Tunable suspension

Suspension Just Like Ken’s Full-Size Car!

Fans of racing cars, from real ones to little ones, know that to get the best out of your car you need to have a sturdy, tuneable suspension system. That’s why the HPI Racing WR8 3.0 uses double wishbone suspension at all four corners, fitted with real coil over oil-filled shock absorbers and thick sway bars front and rear, just like real racing cars! Thick main suspension arms are mated to durable uprights fitted with a pair of rubber-sealed ball bearings for performance that matches Ken’s Ford Fiesta ST RX43.

Fully Adjustable

Full Adjustability Just Like The Real Thing!

All this function is nothing if you can’t customize the car to your liking. Although we’ve set the car to be just about perfect right out of the box, you can easily adjust loads of settings, exactly like a real racing car! Ride height, shock angle and more are simple to adjust if you want to dive under the hood – HPI make it easy to be your own race car mechanic AND driver! Drive like Ken, or work on his car: it’s easy to do both with the Ken Block WR8 3.0!

 

G3.0 HIGH-OUTPUT NITRO ENGINE

The Nitro Star G3.0 H.O. engine is a super-powerful upgraded engine based on the already strong G3.0 used in the HPI Firestorm and Bullet 3.0 trucks. The engine is fitted with a steel flywheel for smooth idling and a racing-style 2-shoe clutch for excellent acceleration and throttle response. If you want instant wheelspin, you've got it! The power from the G3.0 H.O. engine is unbelievable, and with up to 32,000RPM you'll get screamingly fast speeds at the pull of a trigger! A 2-stage air filter protects the carburetor opening from dirt and dust, and the tall forged aluminum heat sink head allows the engine to keep its cool. An all-aluminum exhaust system unlocks the horsepower from the engine and throws out a real trail of engine exhaust at top speed! 

GO-FAST PARTS GALORE!

The HPI Racing WR8 3.0 is super easy to upgrade to make it faster, more responsive, even cooler-looking, tougher and more durable. Swap the wheels for different styles and colors, change the tires for gravel or other off-road surfaces, add alloy braces and suspension parts, lower the weight with woven graphite options and beef up the drivetrain with hardened steel parts - the choice is yours! 

 
 

SUPER-HIGH DETAILED REPLICA

There's no getting around it: this is an amazingly detailed replica of Ken Block's Ford Fiesta ST RX43! From the front splitter to the rear wing, all the way down to the amazing fifteen52 TurboFan and TurboMac wheels, this car looks JUST like the real thing! Every tiny detail of Ken’s real car is replicated in 1/8th scale: the grilles, headlights, the double-level rear wing and spoiler...even the American flag wrapped around the roof air intake! If you want to drive like Ken, you’ve GOT to have his car, and HPI have the only authorized RC replica of Ken’s Ford Fiesta ST RX43 car!
