Micro GT-R Drift Action with The Fail Crew!

The Micro RS4 Drift has always been one of HPI Racing's most fun and action-packed cars, and now it's available fitted with the always cool Nissan Skyline GT-R in jaw-dropping Fail Crew camo colors, as driven by 'Mad' Max Tvardovsky! This is a perfect 1/18 scale version of Max's own GT-R and is dripping with ultimate coolness, from the bright green front splitter to the huge rear wing! Completely wrapped in its green and brown camo-style Ciay designed livery covered with skulls this is the perfect car to make a statement on track!

The Micro Fail Crew Nissan Skyline GT-R is perfect for shredding tires inside and outside, with a high-powered motor driving all four wheels and coil-over shocks providing smooth power and excellent control. This Ready To Run Micro RS4 Drift kit features a highly detailed and scale Nissan Skyline R34 GT-R replica body for an awesome scale look wherever you drive! It's fitted with hard plastic tires out of the box, so it's ready for wild drift action on any surface!

The HPI Micro RS4 is powered by an HPI 180-size motor, electronic speed control, full time 4WD belt drive and water-resistant steering servo. It's ready to drift straight out of the box, just like Max's full-size Nissan Skyline GT-R!


We're super excited to announce our new partnership with Fail Crew's Max Tvardovsky! Max exploded into the drifting world with a round win at the European Drift Allstars in Hungary, and ever since he's been dominating the track and taking home trophies! Fail Crew is an international crew of pilots that has secured its top rating position at the most prestigious drifting competitions. If you’re up against anyone from Fail Crew on the track, be prepared to – yes, fail! Every crew member’s automobile is an object of modern art on wheels, attracting attention of both thousands of spectators and the media.

Fail Crew members take part in all major world drifting series, such as Drift Allstars, Russian Drift Series, Eastern Europe Drift Series, and make it to the podiums, or at least prizes, most of the time. Check out Max on Instagram!


2.4Ghz Radio System


The Micro RS4 is super-easy to drive and get familiar with – all you have to do is install the batteries, 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 - push it again to go into reverse. It takes only seconds to get used to this easy operation, and in no time at all you’ll be ripping off jaw-dropping moves, just like Max in full-size competitions!

Image of Wheels


This car features true-to-scale replica wheels, taken directly off Max's one-of-a-kind Nissan Skyline GT-R! These are exact replicas of the wheels used on the full-size car, even down to the awesome two-tone olive and silver! With the hard plastic compound, the tires are super-easy to slide and drift on any surface, indoors and out! All you have to do is stomp on the gas and yank the wheel and you're sideways!


Four Wheel Drive - Maximum traction on any surface

4WD System for Great Handling

The Micro RS4 Drift features a smooth 4WD system to give you the best handling anywhere you drive. The belt drive runs down the length of the chassis from the direct-drive rear axle to the front differential for an efficient and elegant drive system that gives you the perfect amount of grip at the front and rear!.

Cantilever Front Shocks

Unique F1-style front shock absorbers provide a smooth steering response for great control. Independent front suspension is the ideal solution for a car this size, allowing your steering inputs to directly affect the direction and control of the car. You'll feel as if you're actually in the car, steering it around corners!


Easy Driving Anywhere

With its 4WD belt-drive system and hard tires, the Micro RS4 Drift is easy to drift on any smooth surface! Concrete, short carpet and even tarmac or asphalt are all ideal sliding surfaces that were made for your car - you'll feel like a real drifter with the Micro RS4!

Tuning the car is simple with HPI option parts - not only can you change the body style and wheels for a whole new look, you can also change the tires and width of the car for different traction characteristics. Upgrade the efficiency of your Micro with these #72456 tough one-piece Universal Dogbones!
