Instant 60+ mph
Awesome and Powerful
Ken Block Action!
You´ve seen it in Gymkhana 8, you´ve seen it in Terrakhana, and you´ve seen it racing in Gymkhana GRiD - Ken Block´s jaw-droppingly cool color-shift Ford Fiesta ST RX43 racer is now available for you to drive away in a sweet 1/8th scale WR8 FLUX version! HPI FLUX power is able to propel this 485mm (19") long replica car from a standing start into wild racing action and 60+ mph (100+km/h) with just a single pull of the trigger, so it´s the perfect way to copy Ken´s epic performances with your friends!
Underneath the replica Ken Block Ford Fiesta ST RX43 body, the WR8 FLUX chassis is based on the HPI Bullet RC monster truck, which means it´s massively tough and can take a real beating on- or off-road! The WR8 FLUX is powered by a massive 4000KV brushless motor and waterproof 3S-capable speed controller, delivering power through tough metal gear differentials and the fully ball bearing-supported 4WD shaft drivetrain of the Bullet monster truck. Combine this with WR8 rally-style suspension geometry, custom-designed shock towers and dampers, plus extra-thick sway bars for extra control! Top it off with semi-slick tarmac tires and replica fifteen52 TurboMac wheels and you´ve got an instant head-turner in your hands!
The HPI Racing WR8 is crammed with awesome features that enhance its durability anywhere you want to take it, including a high ground clearance, skidplate, foam front bumper, optimized rally-style suspension geometry, shock debris guards, mud deflectors on the chassis and much more. It´s the ideal machine to race your friends on Gymkhana-style courses and multi-surface tracks, or anywhere you like!
Like all HPI Racing RTR (Ready-To-Run) cars, the WR8 FLUX is completely pre-built: all you have to do is open the box, install the batteries and you are ready for awesome stunt action! 4 AA alkaline HPI Plazma batteries are included for the transmitter, all you have to provide is a 2S or 3S LiPo battery for the car, plus a LiPo charger.
