Whether you choose the new bright blue or searing orange design, it's sure to grab the attention of your friends at the local track! The bodyshell comes completely trimmed, decaled and mounted for the ultimate in ease. The intricate paint design features an extreme sports-inspired layout for a concours-quality appearance. You can always customize your truck with any of the clear or pre-painted polycarbonate body shells from the huge assortment of HPI bodies and other manufacturers as well! To set off the new paint schemes, the Firestorm 10T is topped off with a set of chrome-plated wheels for the final word in style.

VENTURE CRAWLER TOYOTA FJ CRUISER SANDSTORM 1/10 4WD ELECTRIC CRAWLER
VENTURE CRAWLER TOYOTA FJ CRUISER SANDSTORM 1/10 4WD ELECTRIC CRAWLER
Venture... Into the Outdoors The Venture FJ Cruiser is the ultimate adventure-ready scale RC trail truck. Developed from the ground up to be the most advanced and driver-friendly scaler truck available, the HPI Venture is ready for trail driving across mountains, streams and more. It's the perfect trail companion for anyone from weekend ramblers to globe-trotting adventure heroes! The Venture combines a realistic front-motor position and formed steel chassis rails with a realistic suspension and drivetrain. The Venture chassis is finished with the fabulous look of the celebrated Toyota FJ Cruiser for a fantastic scale off-road experience only HPI can deliver! With a fully licensed replica body that includes front and rear bumpers, mirrors, functional roof rack and swing-away spare tire mount, the Venture brings total scale realism to crawler fans right out of the box. Underneath the body, the steel C-channel chassis rails support a front-mounted motor, transmission and servo, plus a central transfer case that sends power to telescoping driveshafts and solid axles with metal diff covers. Authentically scaled oil-filled shock absorbers and full-time locked differentials work with the realistically treaded tires for confident driving in all off-road situations. Official Replica of the Toyota FJ Cruiser The Toyota FJ Cruiser body included with the Venture RTR kit is completely outfitted with a range of fabulous scale items that would be extras on many other scaler trucks. In addition to the officially licensed replica FJ Cruiser body on its own, you'll find a pair of side mirrors, a functional roof rack ready for a range of scale accessories, a working swing-away spare tire mount on the back bumper, working D-ring shackles on the front and rear bumpers, tubular brush guard and mounts for LED lights on the front bumper, and adjustable-width rock rails that help the truck glide over tough obstacles. Scale Chassis Design and Layout The Venture FJ Cruiser features a formed steel C-channel chassis and cross braces as the foundation for a realistic truck chassis. To make sure the truck has a front weight bias that improves its climbing ability, the 35-turn crawler-spec motor and the transmission are mounted right up front - just like in a real truck! For additional weight up front, the steering servo is also mounted to the chassis next to the motor. Aluminum Diff Covers The Venture FJ Cruiser is packed with awesome scale details - and real metal diff covers are just one of them! Known as the "pumpkin" by most off-roaders, the differentials on each axle on the Venture feature aluminum covers for an instant custom look. You can also customize the diff covers yourself by polishing them or painting them your favorite color! Swing-Away Tailgate With a functional swing-away spare tire mount on the back bumper, the Venture adds a super cool feature that is a unique feature among all stock scaler trucks! Fitted with a real, ready to use spare tire (the all-new Rockthorn off-road tire on a black CR-10 wheel!), the spare tire mount also helps hold the back of the replica Toyota FJ Cruiser body in place. Front & Rear Bumpers The Venture FJ Cruiser features sturdy front and rear bumpers to protect the replica body and the chassis from the inevitable scrapes and incidents that come with off-road trail driving. The front bumper is fitted with tubular brush guards and holes where you can mount LED lights for night driving. Both bumpers feature functional D-ring shackles so you can use ropes and bungees to strap down scale gear or attach winch cables. Functional Roof Rack No trail run is complete without a full set of scale overland accessories like a rolled-up tent, sleeping bags and more, and the roof is the perfect place to store that while driving from campsite to campsite. Side and rear rails let you use bungees to hold down your gear for extra scaler points - or use a cargo net for ultimate scale realism! Rock Rail Sliders Robust side bars, known as rock sliders or rock rails, allow the Venture to slide over obstacles that are just a bit too tall for it to completely clear. Stretching from the front to rear wheel openings, they serve to aid off-road performance as well as protect the body from scratches by ground obstacles like rocks and boulders. Although they are the perfect fit for the replica Toyota FJ Cruiser body, they can be adjusted in width to fit other scaler bodies. Rockthorn Off-Road Tires on CR-10 Wheels Venture FJ Cruiser features all-new Rockthorn tires with thick, self-cleaning tread blocks for driving on hard-packed dirt, gravel, wet or dry rocks, loose dirt, mud and more. The Rockthorn tires have additional sidewall tread to help get the truck over extra-difficult obstacles like slippery rocks and tree roots. The tires are mounted on great-looking CR-10 1.9" beadlock-style multispoke wheels, which themselves feature center hub caps that hide the wheel nuts for maximum scale realism. Balanced Weight Distribution The chassis layout of the Venture FJ Cruiser, with the forward-mounted motor and transmission, plus the chassis-mounted servo (CMS), puts most of the weight at the front end, giving the Venture ultra-realistic driving performance and an advantage over most other scale trucks when hitting the trail. All-Metal Transmission The Venture FJ Cruiser is the first RTR scale truck to feature strong metal gears throughout its transmission. With a main gear set taken from the ultra-fast and ultra-strong Savage XS Flux, the Venture drivetrain can handle LiPo power up to 3S without any upgrades. Perfect Off-Road Trail Gearing With the transmission drive ratio of 1.53:1, the overall drivetrain ratio is 7.6:1 for a good all-around gearing and a final drive ratio of 30.4:1 out of the box. This will get you up or down most trails and get you started climbing difficult inclines. With pinion gears of 15-28 teeth, you can get final drive ratios of 30.4:1 to 16.2:1. You can easily alter the ratio with an optional 56-tooth spur and pinion gears from 19-32 teeth for final drive ratios of 22.4:1 to 13.3:1. Center Transfer Case In addition to the motor and transmission at the front, the Venture FJ Cruiser features a centrally mounted transfer case with a gear ratio of 1.5:1. In addition to putting the maximum amount of weight to the front of the chassis, the central location of the transfer case allows the drivetrain to sit low and down the centerline of the chassis so the driveshafts are perpendicular to the axles for maximum power transfer to the tires. Low Angle Driveshafts The low angle and central position of the driveshafts allows for maximum power transfer, so as much power as possible reaches the tires. The driveshafts are composite slider-style shafts with universal joints at each end, where they meet the transfer case and axle. At the axles, 13-tooth pinions and 43-tooth ring gears (axle ratio of 3.31:1) sit inside the "pumpkin" or center of the axles. Each differential is equipped with metal diff lockers for pure 4WD traction at all times. Adjustable Slipper Clutch An externally adjustable slipper lets you tackle slick rocks and loose surfaces without having to make big changes to the setup of the Venture. Correct adjustment gives you the perfect amount of power and grip by reducing wheelspin, which enhances grip - and the easy to reach adjustment nut lets you make quick adjustments on the trail. Advanced Truck Steering The steering system for scale RC trucks is very important - and that's why the Venture FJ Cruiser was designed with the latest advancements in steering and suspension for strength as well as realism. This makes the Venture the most versatile scaler truck on the trail! With a Chassis-Mounted Servo (CMS) and Behind The Axle (BTA) steering, plus a functional Panhard bar, you get perfect scale looks with realistic and ideal performance, no matter what terrain you're hitting. Aluminum mounts for the Panhard bar and aluminum steering plates add the strength and durability to give you total confidence on the trail. Panhard Bar A Panhard bar on aluminum mounts provides extra scale looks, because it's featured on most off-road trucks and vehicles. The purpose of the Panhard bar is to maintain zero bump steer as the axle rises over bumps and falls into holes and ruts. This helps the Venture FJ Cruiser go exactly where you want it with precise steering control! CMS (Chassis-Mounted Servo) The realistic steering for the Venture FJ Cruiser begins with a Chassis-Mounted Servo. With a strong SS-20WR servo firmly mounted at the front of the chassis, the weight of the servo aids the front weight bias of the Venture. The solid metal steering link also looks like it came out of a real truck, and connects to the tough steering knuckle. The high torque (6.5kg-cm/90 oz-in at 6V) SS-20WR servo is water-resistant so you can take it through water, snow and mud without fear of damage, and if you want to upgrade the steering it's easy to drop in an ultra-powerful servo for maximum off-road steering Zero Ackermann Steering For a super-tight turning radius, the Venture FJ Cruiser features zero Ackermann steering angle. This basically means you have equal steering angles for the front tires when they are steered all the way to the left or right - the maximum amount of steering for the best performance when tackling rugged off-road terrain. BTA (Behind The Axle) steering The Venture FJ Cruiser features Behind The Axle (BTA) steering linkage out of the box, so you don't have to do any complicated modifications to get maximum performance on the trail. A tough steel rod connects the two metal-reinforced steering knuckles together behind the front axle. With all of the steering linkage kept out of the way of potential obstacles such as rocks and roots, the truck has a much better approach angle than with standard crawler kit steering designs Maximized Clearance Angles The Venture chassis is loaded with potential, making it extremely versatile on the trail and up tough climbing routes. Its capability lies in several factors, including off-road friendly clearance angles from the tire contact points to the bumpers and chassis, as well as good ground clearance thanks to its minimal diff case size. Break-over angle: 44.5 degrees Approach angle: 55 deg Departure angle: 45.5 deg Max climb angle: 49 deg Max tilt angle: 28 deg Axle articulation: 30 deg Ground clearance 68mm capable: (2.7") Ground clearance at standard ride height 60mm: (2.4") Axle ground clearance 32mm: (1.3") Trail-Ready Suspension Good suspension is at the heart of every off-road vehicle, and this principle is evident everywhere you look on the Venture chassis. From the aluminum mounts on the axles to the dual-stage shock absorbers, the Venture FJ Cruiser is packed with advanced features unseen on other scale crawlers - without purchasing optional parts! The Venture can perform on any trail, thanks to adjustable oil-filled shock absorbers and standard-sized 12mm hex hubs to fit a huge range of scale wheels and tires. Rugged Aluminum Parts Enhancing the look and style of the Venture chassis are aluminum suspension parts that are a fantastic throwback to truck kits from RC's retro golden age. From the axle covers which have the HPI hex logo on them, to the thick shock and rod link mounts, the real metal parts add a great look to the Venture that other scale trucks can't match! Both Panhard bar mounts are also aluminum, as well as all four hex hubs for the wheels. Each hex hub is also held in place on the axles by steel setscrews for additional security. 3-Link Suspension The Venture features a sturdy and reliable 3-link suspension front and rear. Two composite fixed links form the lower suspension links front and rear. The upper links consist of an alloy single link for the front, and a Y-shaped composite link at the rear. If you prefer, the rear suspension links can be easily swapped to 4-link suspension with the #117079 Option 4-Link Set. Dual Stage Coil-Over Shocks For ultimate trail tuning, the alloy shock absorbers feature dual-stage shock springs. This means the short spring softens the gentle bumps and dips you encounter while driving, and the longer firm spring catches the harder hits, such as when the Venture is descending a steep embankment. HPI designers have found the perfect combination of springs and oils for all-around driving, but you can fine-tune the ride of your truck with different shock oils and springs to make the Venture perform at its best on the trail. Adjustable Wheelbase The Venture chassis lets you change the wheelbase from 290mm to 315mm (11.4 to 12.2 inches) by modifying the length of the linkage, which can change the look and driving of the truck. If you fit a different body to customize your Venture, adjusting the wheelbase lets the tires fit in the wheel openings, which helps the truck look perfectly scale. SC-3SWP3 Crawler Edition ESC The Venture FJ is equipped with a highly versatile and fully waterproof HPI SC-3SWP3 Crawler Edition electronic speed controller, which is packed with a full range of adjustments and capabilities. In addition to being able to take power from the included 2000mAh NiMH (nickel metal-hydride) rechargeable battery pack, you can swap the battery for a 2S or 3S LiPo (lithium-polymer) battery for extra power and runtime. The Venture on 3S is a beast on the trail! The SC-3SWP3 Crawler Edition also features our HDC Hill Descent Control adjustable electronic drag brake system to make driving down steep declines more controllable at all angles - just like modern luxury off-roaders! High Torque SS-20WR Steering Servo The water-resistant HPI SS-20WR steering servo is the ideal companion for the Venture electronics package. This is a high torque servo with up to 6.5kg-cm/90 oz-in holding power at 6V, plus it's water-resistant so it can easily handle splashes and water drops when driving through puddles, snow and mud. Mounted directly to the chassis next to motor, it provides extra weight over the front axle to enhance the front weight bias of the Venture. Operating Voltage: 4.8-6V 4.8V: Speed: 0.14 sec/60 degrees, Torque: 4.2kg-cm/58 oz-in 6V: Speed: 0.11 sec/60 degrees, Torque: 6.5kg-cm/90 oz-in Servo Spline: 25T TF-41 2.4GHz Radio System with Waterproof Receiver The popular steering wheel & pistol grip HPI TF-41 radio system controls the Venture on its travels, giving you total control of the steering and throttle/brake. The carry handle makes it convenient to take on your trail walks, and the shape of the controller lets you set it on the ground for easy picking it up by the grip. The folding antenna allows it to take up the minimum amount of space in your backpack on the way to the trail. The RF-41WP receiver is fully waterproof, so you don't have to think about what you're driving through. For extra protection, the receiver is encased in a secure receiver box which also allows you to install your own radio set. 35-turn Crawler Spec Motor A sealed, brushed motor with 35 turns provides the perfect mix of speed on the trail and crawling torque for climbing steep embankments and obstacles. It's a standard 540-size motor, so it's easy to change the motor for something else you've got in your collection. Thanks to the all-metal gears in the transmission and standard electronics sizing, you can easily upgrade to a brushless motor and 3S battery for extra speed and wheelspin to get over anything.

Realistic Aerodynamic Body Details The HPI Racing 1/10th scale Falken Tire Porsche 911 GT3 RSR authentically replicates the extensive aerodynamic details of it's full scale counterpart with the adjustable replica rear wing, multi piece rear diffuser and side body aero pieces behind the front wheels. The car not only looks fantastic when standing still, but really works to add downforce to the rear of the car while it moves at speed. One-Piece Molded Chassis The main chassis is formed from a single piece of reinforced plastic and features the drivetrain tunnel molded right down the middle, just like a real car. It's a step beyond any plastic tub chassis car available today. Low Profile Layout Design One of the ways we gave the RS4 Sport 3 the best possible handling was to make sure all the components fit as low as possible in the chassis. This gives the car an amazingly low center of gravity for enhanced cornering capabilities. 3S LiPo Capable The RS4 Sport 3 features a versatile electronic speed controller that can be used with modern lithium-polymer (LiPo) or nickel-metal hydride (NiMH) batteries. The speed controller is fitted with an official high-current Dean's Plug, which means you can use use 2S or 3S lithium-polymer batteries, including any of the range of HPI Plazma batteries. Fits a Wide Variety of Batteries The RS4 Sport 3 chassis can fit lithium-polymer and nickel-cadmium packs of various sizes, including the extra-long 7-cell Ni-MH packs. Whatever your power requirements, it can hold it all! A thick hook-and-loop strap holds the pack securely in place, and a simple battery block screws into place to allow you to adjust the weight distribution forward or backward for extra steering or acceleration. HPI Flux Technology for Ultra-Fast Speeds What sets apart the RS4 Sport 3 Flux from our other offerings is the HPI Flux brushless power installed in every Flux-powered machine. The RS4 Sport 3 Flux is fitted with the awesome Flux MMH-4000 motor, one of our most powerful motors for 1/10th scale cars. Thanks to the robust Flux EMH-3S speed controller, you can strap in your choice of 2S or 3S LiPo power (or a 7.2v-8.4v NiMH battery with a Dean's plug) to give the car an unbelievable power out of the turns and speeds of up to 70mph (124km/h) on the straight, when using optional gearing! *To achieve 70mph you will need the 114569 - HIGH SPEED GEAR SET and 106401 - PLAZMA 11.1V 3200mAh 35C LiPo Battery Pack Full-Time Four-Wheel Drive The RS4 Sport 3 features full-time four-wheel drive to give you the most control and precision on the road or track. All four wheels are driven by heavy duty gear differentials at the front and rear, just like a real car. The extra traction gives you increased acceleration and cornering control for maximum confidence and fun. Sealed Shaft Drivetrain The drivetrain of all the RS4 Sport 3 models features the motor mounted longitudinally in the molded chassis, next to the long driveshaft that goes down the center of the car. The entire drivetrain, including the central driveshaft and gear diffs, is completely sealed to prevent dirt, rocks and debris from damaging or binding the drivetrain. The driveshaft, diffs and axles spin on ball bearings to maximize drivetrain efficiency. Bottom-Access Driveshaft The central driveshaft that connects the front and rear differentials is easily accessed from underneath the chassis. This allows the drivetrain to be completely sealed to protect it from rocks and debris no matter where you may want to drive your car. Easy Access Differentials Getting to the differentials for quick adjustments is a matter of removing just 4 screws - this allows you to pop out the diff and change the grease, check the gears or just give it a general service. 4-Gear Metal Diffs Bevel gear differentials at each end of the car transfer power from the driveshaft to the dogbones and axles that drive each wheel. The all-metal construction allows the drivetrain to withstand powerful brushless motors for easy upgrading in the future. Rubber-sealed ball bearings support the differentials and each diff can be tuned independently by changing the diff grease. Double-Wishbone Fully Adjustable Suspension The suspension of the RS4 Sport 3 uses the race-proven double-wishbone suspension design, similar to a full scale modern race car. You'll be able to control the anti-squat and anti-dive of the front and rear arms using the standard pivot blocks, and the option parts allow you to adjust the sweep and toe angles. You'll also be able to easily change the roll center front and rear with the racing-style vertical ballstud mounting on both the inner and outer camber link mounts. Multiple shock mounting positions provide a full range of shock suspension angle adjustment to suit different road conditions. Multiple Shock Positions Oil-Filled Threaded Shocks The RS4 Sport 3 is fitted with a set composite coilover-style oil-filled shocks, just like what you'd see on a real race car. The fully adjustable shocks are fully tunable to provide the optimum chassis performance on a wide variety of road surfaces. The ride height is quickly adjustable by using the threaded shock collars. Further tuning adjustments are also possible by changing the springs and shock oil weight. Tough Front End Suspension The RS4 Sport front end uses the strong C-hub style suspension seen on the latest RC touring cars, with a vertical ball stud camber mount that lets you change the front end roll center - which is a critical racing adjustment that allows the RS4 Sport 3 to be a step above other sport-level RC touring cars. The suspension arm also features multiple shock mounting holes for easy shock angle adjustment. Tunable Rear Suspension The rear hub is fitted with a vertical ball stud style adjustment that allows easy adjustment of the rear roll center. Moving the ball stud up or down with the optional spacers changes the traction characteristics of the rear end as the car goes through the turns. The suspension arm also features 3 different shock mounting holes for easy shock angle adjustment. Double Bellcrank Steering The performance tested adjustable double bell crank system provides optimum steering precision at all speeds. A metal drag link plate connects the cranks for extra durability, the additional drag link mounting positions also allows for Ackermann angle adjustments. Rugged Spring-Loaded Servo Saver Fitted to the HPI SF10W waterproof servo is an adjustable multipiece servo saver, which protects the servo from crash damage. In the event of a crash or collision, the front wheels usually take a big portion of the blow and transmits the impact directly to the steering servo. The strong spring-loaded cam action of the servo saver is designed to absorb this force and protect the servo internals from the impact! Aluminum Motor Mount The cast aluminum cam-style motor mount holds the motor in place for a secure pinion/spur connection. Two screws hold the cam firmly in position on the mount, and cooling fins on the lateral support aid heat dissipation to keep the motor running as efficiently as possible. Rear End Chassis Diffuser The built in rear end chassis diffuser element smooths out the air flow underneath the chassis for maximum aero efficiency. Rubber-Sealed Ball Bearings The RS4 Sport 3 is fully fitted with a set of rubber-sealed ball bearings for maximum efficiency. The rubber seals keeps the dust away from the internals while the smooth precision bearings provides for optimum power delivery from the power source out into the driveline. Rugged Front Bumper To protect the front suspension, chassis and body from impacts big and small, an extra thick foam bumper is securely fastened to the front of the RS4 Sport 3. Customize Your Look A huge variety of option bodies, wheels and tires from HPI lets you fully customize the style of your RS4 Sport 3 to suit your style. Adjustable Height Body Mounts The adjustable height body mounts let you fit any 1/10th scale touring car body from HPI Racing on to the RS4 Sport 3 chassis. All you need to do is adjust the front and rear body mounts to allow the wheels and chassis elements to fit properly underneath the body. Body pins hold the mounts in place, and the multiple mounting hole positions allow you to fine-tune the exact body fitment. Body Choices You can fit any 1/10th scale touring car body from HPI Racing onto the RS4 Sport 3, from hot hatches to supercars, pick-up trucks to supertouring racers.
