Super Scale World Rally Championship Excitement with Flux Power!
Partnering the #106950 nitro-powered WR8 3.0 WRC replica is the HPI WR8 Flux, an all-out assault on rally tarmac stages and time trials! The WR8 Flux has all of the tough drivetrain components of the nitro version, however it's powered by a 4000Kv Flux Vektor motor and your choice of 2S or 3S LiPo battery. It's ready to fly over jumps and blast down the street right out of the box! Starting with drivetrain from the Bullet Flux-powered truck, our designers had the perfect starting point to make an all-new electric rally car, and with improvements to the suspension and wheelbase, the WR8 Flux chassis was born! The WR8 Flux keeps the tough bevel gear differentials, 4WD shaft drivetrain and fully ball bearing-supported drivetrain of the Bullet Flux truck, but adds new suspension geometry, thick sway bars, plus scale WRC-style tarmac tyres and wheels to make it a true rally contender!
Authentic WRC Scale Looks and Performance
To make it a complete scale package, our bodyshell designers got to work replicating the 2011 Ford Fiesta RS WRC used by the Ford Abu Dhabi World Rally Team, the offical Ford works rally team. This car saw action all around the world, from New Zealand to Norway, Great Britain to Germany! The shape and decals of this championship contender are absolutely spot-on, and when you add the officially licensed Abu Dhabi/Castrol livery, scale tarmac tyres and OZ wheels, it's impossible to distinguish it from the real thing!

With the capacity to handle 2S and 3S LiPo power, the Flux VAPOR Pro electronic speed control is able to handle the latest, most powerful batteries you can fit in the WR8 Flux. The VAPOR Pro features an integrated cooling fan to keep it cool in warm conditions, reverse so you can back out of jams with ease, and for maximum adjustability it's fully programmable with our optional #100573 USB Programming Kit.
The Flux VEKTOR 4000 motor delivers massive power - plenty of juice for instant acceleration and enough power to pull out of just about any sideways drift. Option pinion gears are available to fine-tune the speed and torque delivery! The brushless design assures maximum performance with nearly no maintenance required.
The 3mm aluminium chassis is the foundation of a tough and durable racing machine, and features composite braces front and rear, cool silver anodizing and countersunk screws on the bottom for zero interference going over obstacles. The moulded dirt guards keep the worst mud and dirt from getting into the chassis and protect the chassis as well.
A rally car has to cope with a range of conditions and road types that most cars or SUVs will never see - this is why the ride height is adjustable for off-road and on-road conditions using simple clips on the dampers.
Choose the amount of power you put through the WR8 Flux! The Flux Vapor Pro speed controller is able to handle 2S or 3S power, and the adjustable battery tray fits batteries of different sizes, as well as allowing you to make adjustments to the weight distribution!
The WR8 Flux is equipped with the shaft drivetrain straight out of the Bullet nitro and Flux truck. Three oil-filled gear diffs with bevel gears, a full-time 4WD drivetrain supported by rubber-sealed ball bearings, high-strength steel driveshafts and axles and much more!
The extra-strong & waterproof SF-10W servo is ideal for bashers and racers looking for a strong and durable servo for absolutely any kind of condition, and it's the perfect fit to handle the steering and throttle/brake duties in the WR8 Rally. The servos are mounted to an orange-anodized aluminium plate for extra durability and control.
Splashproof receiver box fits the 2.4Ghz receiver plus the aerial mount.
The front bumper protects the front end of the chassis and suspension, and prevents the body from taking too much damage over jumps. A raised skid plate made from tough plastic allows the car to slide over objects in the road, and the high density foam bumper is sandwiched between a high angle skid plate and an upper bumper brace that doubles as a front body mount.
The suspension of the WR8 is entirely new, with durable lower arms to fit the scale size of the Ford Fiesta RS WRC body, solid upper links for simple adjustment and shocks that are the perfect length for off-road use.
These tires are true-to-scale Michelin 'N' style tarmac rally tyres, replicating the semi-slick patterns used by full-size rally teams! Rally tyres must work in a wide range of conditions, and this scale version works great on all types of hard paved surfaces. Of course, you can also fit our replica #107881 OZ gravel wheels and #107870 Michelin Latitude Cross S1 gravel tyres from the WR8 3.0 Nitro!
Thick front and rear sway bars are fitted for precise handling on all kinds of surfaces.
Keeping mud and dirt off the shocks is a key in preventing excessive maintenance time to rebuild the shocks, and the shock guards fitted on the rear suspension arms do a fantastic job in keeping dirt, mud and more off the rear shocks!
Nothing can beat scale realism when you're talking about model cars, and we're proud to feature the official vehicle and livery design of the Ford Abu Dhabi World Rally Team on the WR8 Rally! Every feature of the real car is replicated in perfect scale miniature!
