HPIs official Literature:
The RTR E10 Drift from HPI Racing is an entry level 1/10th scale electric drift car designed for fun driving with realistic looks and performance, all at a low price. The E10 was designed so anyone can take the wheel and give drifting a try! Arriving right out of the box in ready-to-run (RTR) form with a fully painted body and a preassembled chassis, it’s a simple matter of ‘charge and go’ for hours of fun.
The E10 uses true full-time 4WD and independent suspension and specially designed Falken Azenis RT-615K drift tires, making it easy to drift on paved parking lot surfaces. The slick and hard T-Drift tires make drifting easy, holding a smooth line and maximum drift angle just like full size drift cars. An enclosed drivetrain keeps dirt and dust out of the gears for low maintenance and reliability. A large foam bumper protects the car from crash damage, and the chassis and suspension have been strategically engineered for entry level performance and durability.
The RTR E10 includes a high-performance SC-15WP electronic speed control that has throttle, brakes and reverse, allowing it to drive and maneuver just like real cars. Providing the horsepower is a powerful Saturn 27T electric motor for reliable power and performance with low maintenance.
The E10 uses standard body mounting points so owners can fit a wide variety of HPI Racing bodies to customize the look of their car. Most popular wheel and tires bolt right on for extra tuning and styling options. It’s super-easy to choose from an extensive range of touring car, muscle car and drift car accessories to customize the E10!
For extra excitement, the E10 is designed so that it can be easily converted from drift driving to street/touring without adding any new parts. The motor and radio equipment can be moved to optimize the weight balance for smooth drifting or high grip cornering. Complete instructions are included in the box for owners looking for a change of pace in driving styles.
Features… looks… performance… price… the RTR E10 Drift is one of the easiest ways ever to experience the fun and excitement of driving an RC drift car!
