Well, at least the official name just roll’s off the tongue for when you are asking for one at the local hobby shop! After posting the teaser pic then minutes later posting the details (sorry HPI, our bad). The official press release is out!
The new HPI Racing vehicle is the HPI RTR WR8 3.0 Ford Fiesta Abu Dhabi Castrol WRC Nitro Rally Car. I think we will stick with WR8 around here.
Here are some more details, they started with the Bullet 3.0 nitro-truck. It has an extended aluminum chassis, nice big dirt all around, 4WD Shaft driven with twin disc brakes, a new Nitro Start G3.0 engine, sway bars, and scale Michelin gravel tires and wheels. You can adjust the height depending on your needed ground clearance and conditions, waterproof servos, a skid-plate front bumper, all under a Ford Fiesta RS WRC body.
Enjoy the pics!
