Hang onto your hats, HPI has just announced a new Sprint 2 RTR! This new ride is the Vaughn Gittin Jr. 1969 Mustang Edition electric RTR on-road, and is ready for some serious drifting action.

Here are some of the important details:
4 Wheel Drive, Waterproof electronics, 2.4GHz Radio System, Firebolt 15T Motor, RTR out of the box, comes with TWO sets of tires, on-road and drift tires, and is dual belt drive. Looks like the price will come in around $250-$300

I know Wrench will be drooling all over the body of this one.

HPI Racing have just released a couple of shiny new hopups for the Sprint 2 and the Savage XS

HPI Sprint 2 suspension pin braces


Add some color to your ride with these orange anodised suspension pin braces. They will fit all Sprint 2 chassis’, and four screwsto fit them are included.





HPI Savage XS universal drive shaft


If you’re after faster corner speeds and smoother power delivery from your Savage XS, you’ll want a set of these machined steel Universal drive shafts. HPI claim that they’re tougher than the stock dogbones, so they should be perfect for running high powered motors and doing triple backflips wild stunts too!





Check out the HPI Website for details.

It is a well known fact around the office that I’m fighting a serious craving to get into RC drifting. HPI Racing is making it nearly impossible for me to hold off much longer. In April they showed off their new officially licensed E10 drift cars and now they have released a new and improved Sprint 2 Drift car! The Sprint 2 Drift is known as a pretty solid drift vehicle, but now HPI has raised the bar. It will ship with all the standard features like a 15T Firebolt brushed motor, drift tires and full time 4WD. However, it will now come with a 2.4GHz radio system, waterproof and lipo-ready ESC, waterproof servo, and two new fully painted bodies; the 2010 Camaro and Nissian 350Z. Of course, they come completely RTR with batteries and a charger for the included NiMH pack.

Now I’m officially very conflicted. Sprint 2 Drift or E10 Drift…or…both :) HPI’s website isn’t updated just yet, but I’m sure you’ll find all the information there soon.
