如果你打算用WR8和朋友来一场竞速较量，来自BLITZ的铝合金避震足以让你获得明显的圈速提升，当然，最好配上WR8碳纤避震架。SB5舵机也是理想的升级选择，因为具有更高的扭矩和速度。别忘了用Castle Link USB设定线来充分设置电调。最后，D-BOX作为秘密武器提供稳定的漂移路线——它可不只是为专业漂移而设计的！
Of course, to get the most out of any car, RC or full-size, you need the right tires. The Gymkhana replica tires on the WR8 are really soft and provide great grip on paved surfaces (just like the WR8 rally-style tarmac tires), but HPI also have M compound slick tires available, as well as 2 varieties of off-road tires! Choose your weapon wisely - tire choice really makes a difference when you're up against the clock!
Of course you want speed - who doesn't? For the WR8 Flux, the only choice here is the Plazma 11.1V battery pack from HPI. It's already fitted with a Dean's plug for no performance loss at the connection, and it fits straight into the adjustable battery holder on the WR8 chassis. You've already told your friends your WR8 can go faster than 60mph, now it's time to show them! (in a safe place, of course!)

Looks & Styling
It goes without saying that the Ken Block replica bodies look amazing - there's no denying that! However, you might want to change things up a bit now and then and paint up a custom rally, gymkhana or Hoonigan-style paint scheme for your car. OR, you can replace your beat-up rally or Ken Block body with a fresh new one that's exactly the same! HPI have a clear body for your own customization or a variety of Ford Fiesta WRC bodies in Ford Abu Dhabi and Ken Block liveries, in both nitro (with windshield cooling hole cut-out) and electric (no cut-out) versions!

Now, of course you can't discuss car styling without talking about WHEELS! Alloys, rims, dubz, whatever you want to call them, the choices for RC cars are almost as numerous as for full-size cars, and HPI offer a pretty good selection of wheels for on-road and off-road use! Because of the scale replica origins of the WR8 , HPI uses 2 different wheel diameters for on-road wheels (2.2 inch or 57mm) and off-road wheels (1.9 inch or 48mm), so make sure when you get a set of wheels and tires that the rim sizes match!

WR8 3.0 owners will be happy to know there is a way to fit the HPI Roto-Start system to their car, which works great if you have the Roto-Start or Roto-Start 2 system! Just install the Roto-Start Back Plate set for the Bullet and you can use any Roto-Start system, or you can use also the Starter Shaft in a power drill to get the engine going (just don't hold the drill trigger for more than a few seconds at a time). If you want the convenience of a smaller starting package, the Roto-Start 2 system is also listed below.
...and you're ready for ACTION!
Does that give you a few ideas for the future of your WR8? Do you have your own project WR8 in the works? Post photos of your custom WR8 on the HPI Facebook page!
