Nitro RS4 3 EVO RTR 1967 Chevrolet Corvette, HPI Racing

The popular Nitro RS4 3 Evo+ nitro touring car is now available with the 1967 Chevrolet Corvette body. This scale replica features all of the striping and graphics found on the real car.

The “Plus” means more option parts have been added as standard equipment. What’s new? An aluminum tuned pipe is now included for blistering speed, improved heat dissipation, and extra strength. The black alloy pipe matches the header and engine head perfectly for a stealth look that warns your buddies that the G3.0 is serious about laying down massive power.

A new Two Stage air filter has also been added, similar to the proven design found on the Savage truck. It’s bigger than the old filter so you can run longer between routine maintenance intervals. The internal pre-oiled foam element is protected by an outer foam layer, providing optimal air filtration for longer engine life. To help put this new found horsepower to the ground, hardened metal final drive gears from the Evo SS have been added, with a higher gear ratio for more top speed and extra toughness.

To top everything off we offer six body styles… The 1967 Chevrolet Corvette (10054) the Fujitsubo HPI Racing Impreza (10075), 1966 Ford Mustang GT (10052), 1970 Plymouth AAR Cuda (10053), Acura NSX (10050), and the Greddy Nissan 350Z (10051). Of course the bodies are completely painted with pre-applied graphics and they’re exact fully licensed replicas of the real cars.

Our brand new powerful G3.0 engine is included. Rated for 2.2 horsepower at a screaming 31,000 RPM, the G3.0 is a high torque engine with features that include aggressive porting, durable ABC construction, a large heat sink head, dual needle 6.5mm carburetor and a lightweight aluminum connecting rod. The large .18 cubic inch size propels the Nitro RS4 3 Evo+ to a top speed in excess of 50 mph! And, the G3.0 engine is designed to be easy to start, easy to tune, and rock-steady reliable.

Nitro RS4 MT2 G3.0 RTR, HPI Racing

How do you make the next generation Nitro MT 2 truck even better? Add more power, more speed, and extra durability! We added the powerful and exciting G3.0 engine which has already been setting things alight in the Firestorm 10T. The G3.0 has .18 cubic inches of displacement (versus .15 cubic inches on the T-15 engine) that helps it crank out more torque and higher top speed, propelling the Nitro MT 2 G3.0 to over 45mph! Now that’s FAST!

For maximum power we optimized the gear ratios for the G3.0 engine and added a new aluminum dual chamber tuned pipe and aluminum tube header to help the engine breathe freely and efficiently, and a new high flow dual-stage air filter that helps keep out dust and dirt for extended engine life! A new 100cc fuel tank is 50% larger than the original Nitro MT 2 fuel tank for extended run time between pit stops.

To handle the extra power, the chassis and suspension have been upgraded with redesigned front suspension parts for improved strength, a heavy-duty clutch bell, and tougher diff gear material for extra durability. The combination is tough to beat… tougher and faster, all in a ready-to-run 4WD 1/10th scale truck platform that has extensive parts support and tuning options.

The all-new Dirt Force body is pre-painted with bold graphics, and comes pre-trimmed and mounted to the chassis with the decals pre-applied for the ultimate in ease and good looks. It doesn’t get easier than that! And now you have the choice of two different body colors, deep metallic blue with silver and black stripes, or bright red with orange and black stripes. To top everything off we added shiny chrome 6-spoke “Scorch” off-road wheels, realistic Yokohama Geolander tires, and a stealthy grey anodized chassis!
