The Sprint 2 has been a consistently popular car kit at the club and hobbyist level, and the new Sport version takes it up another notch! With the Sprint Sport cars, HPI aims to make the kit even more popular with a few changes to the electronics package. The RTR Sprint 2 Sport features a completely pre-assembled chassis with all the major electronics installed. You get a full set of high quality HPI electronics, from the 15-turn Firebolt motor to the SC-15 electronic speed control and TF-1 radio gear. All you have to supply are the 8 AA batteries for the transmitter, plus the battery and charger for the car. Supplying the Sprint 2 in this form allows you to pick and choose the exact battery/charger setup you want, so you can be ready for full throttle racing or hours of car park fun! This road version adds specially designed D compound, treaded X-Pattern tyres, pre-mounted on officially licensed replicas of the famous Volk TE37 wheels. Top it off with your choice of two different pre-painted bodyshells, the sleek HPI Toureza or the hulking HPI Fujitsoba Subaru Impreza, both supplied with vinyl decals and flashy, eye-popping graphics already applied. The chassis is factory assembled right out of the box, making the Sprint 2 Sport the quick and easy way to practice your mad racing skills. The RTR Sprint 2 Sport is a complete machine that looks and drives just like the real thing!
The Sprint 2 is the perfect club racer and is the ideal entry into RC racing fun! Its chassis is almost indestructible and easy to drive, but also has all the racing features you need for a perfect set up on almost every racetrack. The stock settings right out of the box will give you great handling on almost every surface, and with the fully adjustable suspension you'll have control over all important settings including camber, toe-, ride height, Ackerman, springs and more – enough settings to fine-tune your car for low lap times! What's different about the Sprint 2 Sport is that you get the new HPI SC-15 electronic speed control and the Firebolt 15-turn 540-size motor for high top speeds and fast acceleration! You get to choose the battery to use in the car – any stick-pack style 7.2 volt RC battery fitted with a standard battery connector will fit in the chassis. Use any RC fast charger to top up the batteries, and you can keep running and ticking off laps for hours!
The design of the Sprint 2 chassis with its controlled flexibility gives the car great handling. A belt driven 4 wheel drive system guarantees smooth power transfer and excellent traction on all surfaces. Plus, the race proven suspension with real oil filled shock absorbers offer lots of racing features you wouldn't expect from a beginners car: adjustable camber and toe-in links, extra long upper links with new multiple mounting positions, adjustable Ackerman settings, adjustable droop, different caster and toe in blocks included in the kit... to name but a few. All features are listed below in great detail.
With a big foam front bumper, a reinforced chassis, upper deck and shock towers you'll see that the Sprint 2 can take the abuse of racing on the track and on the street! All important chassis and suspension parts are made from high quality, high impact nylon which makes the Sprint 2 almost indestructible! The fully ball raced, dual belt, 4 wheel drive transmission with only one geared step (48dpi motor pinion to spur gear) is very efficient and capable of high power modified electric motors.
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.
