PRE-ASSEMBLED 1/8TH SCALE 4WD NITRO POWERED RALLY CAR WITH 3.0 HO ENGINE, 2.4GHZ RADIO SYSTEM, SF-10W WATERPROOF SERVOS, PAINTED & FINISHED BODY.
For 2014, Ken Block is getting NITRO POWER!!
The Ken Block WR8 is now available with awesome HPI 3.0 Nitro power! Now you can grab yourself the only officially licensed nitro-powered replica of Ken Block's Global Rallycross Ford Fiesta H.F.H.V. in his eye-catching blue and black GRC livery! The powerful and fast WR8 3.0 from HPI is fitted with a fire-breathing, smoke-spewing, high-revving HPI Nitro Star G3.0 HO engine that makes this 4WD rally car the ultimate Ken Block-approved replica. Get yourself behind the wheel for fantastic top speed runs and jaw-dropping rally or gymkhana-style Hoonigan action!
Underneath the replica Ken Block Ford Fiesta H.F.H.V. body, the WR8 3.0 chassis is based on the Bullet 3.0 nitro monster truck, which means it's massively tough and can take a real beating on or off the road! The WR8 3.0 uses the same tough bevel gear differentials, twin disc brakes and fully ball bearing-supported 4WD shaft drivetrain of the Bullet nitro truck, but adds the Nitro Star G3.0 High Output engine, a racing-style clutch, WR8 rally-style suspension geometry, custom-designed shock towers and dampers and extra-thick sway bars for extra control! Top it off with tarmac rally tires and bright blue Speedline wheels and you've got an instant head-turner in your hands!
The WR8 3.0 kit is completely pre-built, just like all RTR (Ready To Run) kits from HPI Racing. There are a few supplies you'll need, which your HPI retailer will be happy to provide: fuel, a fuel bottle and a glow plug igniter with battery. Enough AA alkaline HPI Plazma batteries are included with the kit to power the hassle-free 2.4GHz radio system.
REPLICA SPEEDLINE WHEELS AND GRC TIRES
For the ultimate in replica looks and fantastic performance, every HPI WR8 with Ken Block's Global Rallycross Ford Fiesta H.F.H.V. body is fitted with replica 11-spoke Speedline GRC wheels in Ken's signature bright blue. The wheels really help the car stand out as a scale replica, and for extreme performance, the wheels are wrapped with semi-slick HPI tires made from real rubber. The rubber compound helps the car stick to asphalt or tarmac, and the treads increase traction on dusty surfaces and dirt for real GRC action!
