KEN BLOCK WR8 FLUX
WITH FORD FIESTA H.F.H.V. BODY
HPI is proud to introduce the action-packed partnership with famed international super star, Ken Block, and his Gymkhana Five edition Ford Fiesta H.F.H.V.. To kick off this partnership, HPI is releasing an exact scale replica of Ken Block's 650hp Gymkhana Five Ford Fiesta H.F.H.V. which was recently unleashed on the quiet streets of San Francisco in the latest edition of the widely popular Gymkhana video series. The 4WD1/8th scale RC platform for this asphalt shredding monster is HPI's recently launched WR8 Flux with brushless motor technology, capable of reaching speeds of up to 60 mph! The Ready To Run kit features a highly detailed scale replica Ken Block Gymkhana Five Ford Fiesta H.F.H.V. body, replica tarmac Gymkhana tires and replica fifteen52 Tarmac wheels.
The HPI WR8 Flux is powered by a 4000Kv HPI Flux Vektor motor, 2S/3S LiPo capable HPI Flux VAPOR Pro electronic speed control, full time 4WD shaft drive technology and sealed super tough adjustable gear differentials. It's ready to fly over jumps and blast down the road just like Ken Block's full sized Ford Fiesta H.F.H.V. from Gymkhana Five.
HPI TF-40 2.4GHZ RADIO SYSTEM
Controlling the Ken Block WR8 FLUX with Ford Fiesta H.F.H.V. is easy with the HPI TF-40 2.4GHz radio system. There's 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.
FULLY LICENSED REPLICA fifteen52 TARMAC WHEELS
The Ken Block WR8 FLUX with Ford Fiesta H.F.H.V. features true-to-scale tarmac fifteen52 wheels! These are exact replicas of the fifteen52 wheels used on Ken's full-size car, and even feature color-matched DC decals on every wheel! Three black wheels and one bright yellow wheel are fitted to every car, just like the real thing!
FLUX VAPOR PRO SPEED CONTROLLER
With the capacity to handle 2S and 3S LiPo power, the Flux VAPOR Pro electronic speed control is able to handle the latest, most powerful batteries you can fit in the WR8 Flux. The VAPOR Pro features an integrated cooling fan to keep it cool in warm conditions, reverse so you can back out of jams with ease, and for maximum adjustability it's fully programmable with our optional USB Programming Kit.
FLUX VECTOR 4000KV MOTOR
The Flux VEKTOR 4000 motor delivers massive power - plenty of juice for instant acceleration and enough power to pull out of just about any sideways drift. Option pinion gears are available to fine-tune the speed and torque delivery! The brushless design assures maximum performance with nearly no maintenance required.
