While you may not ever be able to get behind the wheel of Vaughn Gittin Jr’s one-off 1969 RTR-X Mustang, HPI Racing is offering the next best thing. The company recently announced the Sprint 2 Sport RTR, a 1/10th scale radio-controlled version of the custom built muscle car. While a 5.0L V8 powers the real life car, a Firebolt 15T motor powers the scale model, mated to a 4-wheel drive transmission. The car also features two sets of Work Meister S1 wheels, two sets of tires with different tread patterns and an adjustable suspension system.


Controlling the Sprint 2 Sport RTR is easy with the HPI TF-40 2.4GHz radio system. No need to worry about changing crystals, the radio prevents frequency conflicts automatically. The TF-40 pistol grip transmitter features adjustments for steering trim, throttle trim, steering dual rate, end points, servo reversing switches, low battery indicator and a 3rd channel for optional accessories. The 3 channel receiver is equipped with a failsafe system for maximum safety.


The Sprint 2 Sport RTR now has a waterproof receiver box to keep the 2.4GHz receiver protected from the elements for glitch-free operation. A new SF-10W waterproof steering servo and a waterproof SC-15WP speed control mean your Sprint 2 Sport RTR won’t be stopped by wet conditions.


To help get your new Sprint 2 Sport RTR running as quickly as possible, a rechargeable 7.2V Plazma 2000mAh battery pack and AC wall charger are now included, along with Plazma AA’s for your transmitter. Just charge the battery and you’re ready to start driving!
