The newest member of the HPI x Vaughn Gittin Jr. collection is here, and it's the perfect little brother to the 1/10th scale HPI Mustang RTR-X Sprint 2 Sport and Nitro RS4 3 Evo+! This Micro RS4 is a scaled-down, 1/18th version of Vaughn's iconic 1969 Ford Mustang RTR-X, which was designed by Vaughn in partnership with the Need For Speed crew! Vaughn is the only one who can drive the real thing, but if you want an RC replica that can fit in the palm of your hand, this is the only version you'll be able to find!
The Micro Mustang RTR-X is perfect for shredding tires inside and outside, with a high-powered motor driving all four wheels and coil-over shocks providing smooth power and excellent control. This Ready To Run Micro RS4 kit features a highly detailed and scale 1969 Ford Mustang RTR-X replica body for an awesome scale look any place you drive! Just like the 1/10th scale replica, we even include TWO SETS of wheels and tires, one for drifting and one for racing!
The HPI Micro RS4 is powered by an HPI 180-size motor, electronic speed control, full time 4WD belt drive and waterproof steering servo. It's ready to drive or drift straight out of the box, just like Vaughn Gittin Jr.'s full-size Ford Mustang!
The Micro RS4 is super-easy to drive and get familiar with – all you have to do is install the batteries, plug it in and switch on the radio and car. It’s that easy! To drive the car, simply pick up the controller with your left hand, put your left index finger into the trigger area, and then put your right hand on the steering wheel – it’s as natural as driving a real car! Turn the wheel to go left and right, and gently pull on the trigger with your left index finger to go forwards. To stop the car, gently push away from you with your left index finger - hold it there to go into reverse. It takes only seconds to get used to this easy operation, and in no time at all you’ll be ripping off jaw-dropping moves, just like Vaughn Gitten Jr. in Formula Drift competitions!
This car features true-to-scale replica wheels, taken directly off Vaughn Gittin Jr.'s one-of-a-kind 1969 Ford Mustang RTR-X! These are exact replicas of the wheels used on Vaughn's full-size car, even down to the awesome two-tone metallic green color! TWO sets of wheels and tires are included with each kit, and it's super-easy to change between them. You get one full set of grippy race tires for all-out performance, and you get another set of high-performance drifting tires for sideways fun!
The Micro RS4 features a smooth 4WD system to give you the best handling any place you drive. The belt drive runs down the length of the chassis from the direct-drive rear axle to the front differential for an efficient and elegant drive system that gives you the perfect amount of grip at the front and rear!.
Unique F1-style front shock absorbers provide a smooth steering response for great control. Independent front suspension is the ideal solution for a car this size, allowing your steering inputs to directly affect the direction and control of the car. You'll feel as if you're actually in the car, steering it around corners!
With its 4WD belt-drive system and grippy real rubber tires, the Micro RS4 is easy to drive on any smooth surface! Concrete, short carpet and even tarmac or asphalt are all ideal racing surfaces that were made for your car - you'll feel like a real racing driver with the Micro RS4!
Tuning the car is simple with HPI option parts - not only can you change the body style and wheels for a whole new look, you can also change the tires and width of the car for different traction characteristics. If you want to get sideways, you can even install our #73419 drift-specific differentials for real Formula D style action!
