The HPI Blitz, the Short Course truck that took the scene by storm by combining the best in durability, performance, looks, style and innovation all into one ready-to-run package, is back and better than ever! The Blitz has received a makeover packed full of exciting new additions to once again set the precedent as the best Short Course truck on the market! The new Blitz RTR is now equipped with a high quality 2.4GHz radio system for crystal free driving, along with an all-new waterproof SC-3sWP2 ESC and enclosed receiver box for all-weather excitement. Topping everything off is a fresh new Skorpion body and graphics that has as much function as it does form.
The new Blitz is now waterproof equipped, and ready to tackle all of those wet conditions like rain, snow, and mud. The new 2.4GHz receiver is safely stored in an enclosed receiver box, protecting it from the elements and ensuring glitch-free operation. The SF-20W waterproof steering servo and SC-3sWP2 waterproof electronic speed controller complete the package.
All of the latest HPI kits are now fitted with a comfortable and feature-packed HPI 2.4GHz radio system for supreme control and confidence! The radio features a pistol-grip design with steering wheel for ease of use and realistic control, compact size, servo reversing and a light weight due to it requiring only four AA batteries. You won't have to worry about radio crystals or what channel other RC racers are using with our 2.4GHz technology - the radio does all that work for you! The radio prevents frequency conflicts automatically and changes channels if there is any interference. Finally, if you ever lose radio signal or battery power, an electronic failsafe will bring it to a safe and controlled stop. You'll have professional-level control in one easy RTR package!
The Blitz is topped off with an all-new Skorpion body that was designed to not only look great with a wide and aggressive stance, but to also perform as well as it looks. The Skorpion body has received treatments in various areas to aid in the overall handling and feeling of the truck, both while driving it, and also while airborne. The body comes in two slick new color offerings, pre-cut and ready to go.
PROVEN HPI DURABILITY THROUGHOUT
The HPI Blitz uses nothing but the finest grade, high-impact nylon plastic on the most critical areas of the truck - from the bumpers to the super beefy arms and everything in between. HPI's industry known strength and durability makes the Blitz friendly for all - be it an R/C newcomer, or the skilled competitor.
The Blitz features a long wheelbase main chassis based on the E-Firestorm - lengthened to deliver the most stable feel a short-course truck can offer.
HIGH PERFORMANCE THREADED SHOCKS
The threaded shock bodies feature super smooth shock action , as well as quick, on-the-fly adjustability.
The unique and proven pivoting skid-plates have been adapted from the unmatched Baja 5T platform, which are able to truly absorb impacts.
Factory installed quick-change 3-degree rear toe block provides you with plenty of traction, and making changes is easy.
ALL METAL GEAR TRANSMISSION
A bulletproof, brushless ready, full-metal gear transmission comes stock in the truck, and is made to handle all the power you can throw at it. Silicone oil is also pre-filled in the diff for an enjoyable, easy-to-drive experience.
WATERPROOF SPEEDO with LiPo CUT-OFF
The waterproof SC-3sWP2 electronic speed controller features a LiPo battery cut-off to make your driving time safe as well as fun! You can use a 6- or 7-cell NiMH battery, OR a 2S Lithium-Polymer battery for extra speed and power! The safety cut-off makes sure any LiPo battery isn't discharged too much, extending its lifetime while protecting your batteries!
The Firebolt 15T motor provides plenty of power for competing at your local track to just plain fun bashing and jumps.
A complete set of rubber sealed ball bearings are included for super smooth drivetrain operation.
12mm hexes will keep your wheels secure under extreme power, and will keep them from stripping out. 12mm hex hubs are the short-course industry standard allowing you to customize your truck with a wide variety of aftermarket parts.
E-clip-less captured hinge pins make maintenance quick and hassle free, and also keep the suspension extremely smooth and snug.
A simple flip of the rear battery mount will allow you to secure the Ni-MH/Ni-Cd or Li-Po battery pack of your choice with an easy to use thumbscrew hold down strap.
