The powerful Nitro Star G3.0 sits far forward in the all-new chassis, providing loads of horsepower and enhancing the balance of the car for perfect weight distribution and handling. With most of the weight on the front tyres just like full-size drift machines, the rear of the car smoothly rotates around corners for proper drift precision and grace. There is no better nitro drift car on the planet!
It's easy to transform the look of the Nitro 3 Drift: just drop on a high quality HPI officially licensed bodyshell from import legends like Honda, Toyota, Nissan and others, then bolt on a set of slick JDM (Japan Domestic Market) replica alloy wheels to complete the outrageous drift style! You can also add on a wide array of bright aluminium and extremely cool woven carbon fibre options to highlight the chassis.

Choose the Nissan Silvia S15 body or the muscular Toyota Soarer to suit your style, they’re both pre-painted, pre-trimmed, pre-applied decals, and both come with chrome Volk TE-37 wheels and drift tires for authentic JDM drift looks. Realistic ‘3-D’ wings and authentic drift company graphics complete the full drift maniac look!

Underneath the cool street style of any top drift machine is loads of power, and the Nitro 3 Drift is no different: the power of the mighty HPI Nitro Star G3.0 engine gives you all the horsepower you want for huge top speeds and long tyre-smoking power slides in every turn! The chassis layout has been completely revised by the HPI Japan design team for optimal drifting.
