Introducing the new, fantastic HPI E10 street car! The E10 is the latest RTR-spec touring and drift machine from HPI, and will dazzle you with its ease of use and great looks!
The E10 is a four-wheel drive, factory-assembled, fully prepared 1/10th scale
street car from the same world-renowned HPI design team that is famous for user friendliness, racer appeal and usability. Aimed squarely at the new or casual RC car hobbyist, the E10 will delight and amaze everyone who drives it!
The first thing that will strike you about the E10 is how great it looks. Amazing quality bodyshells, crafted to perfection by HPI’s in-house craftsmen, are a trademark of HPI’s commitment to quality. Unique wheels in today’s latest styles and realistic-looking tyres in long-lasting rubber compounds are also items that HPI customers have come to expect.
Each bodyshell supplied with the E10 is painted in bright colours that you can see a mile away. These are the same bodyshells that concours winners around the world have used to win trophies and medals! Applied carefully to the outside of the bodyshell are fully detailed decals of headlights, tail lights, vents, scoops and grilles for a totally really look that will truly impress your friends. The body post holes and aerial opening are pre-drilled, meaning there is nothing for you to prepare after opening the box!
Rolling on shiny, fashionable chrome wheels, each E10 rolls on realistic treaded rubber tyres wrapped around bright chromed wheels that look fantastic rolling down the street!
Looking inside the wheels, you will see brake discs that rotate with the wheel, and separate brake calipers that stay in place – details not included on any other RTR car! This final touch helps set the E10 apart from all the other contenders!
All HPI RTR kits feature easy-to-use radio gear and electronics, and the E10 cars are no different. Right out of the box you will get great performance and superb reliability from HPI electronics!
Every HPI E10 car is equipped with a narrowband high frequency dual channel AM pistol grip radio. The realistic steering wheel feel of this type of radio encourages the RC beginner to think of the E10 as a real car driving around a race course, and the feel of pulling back on the throttle trigger is just like stomping on the accelerator of a real car!
Because all of the electronics are standard-size RC components with standardized connectors, any or all of the components can be upgraded at any time, or moved into a different RC vehicle in the future. The E10 will accept any standard 540-size motor in the E10, and also any RC battery pack, of either stick pack or side-by-side design.
The HPI TF-1 radio transmitter features interchangeable frequency crystals, a retractable aerial, easy access to radio adjustments and simple battery replacement. The transmitter features servo reversing and easy access trim adjustment, plus a compact size to make it easy for you to get straight to driving your car. The comfortable pistol-shape controller fits easily in the hand and the steering wheel replicates the controls of a full-size car.
The RF-1 receiver and SF-1 servo have been used in many HPI RTR kits over the past several years and have proven their reliability and endurance many times over! You will get reliable long-range connections between your transmitter and car with the RF-1.
With the HPI SF-1 steering servo you will have dependable control with a strong unit that can last the lifetime of the car. You can also easily upgrade to a stronger servo if you want faster action; for the RC newcomer the SF-1 is the ideal solution.
The EN-1 is our latest electronic speed controller and features fully proportional throttle control as well as reverse. This means you have fine control over the acceleration and braking of your car. With the reversing function you'll also be able to back your way out of trouble!
Providing the electrical power to the car is a 1500mAh stick-type battery pack with a standard battery connector. This will give you plenty of run time for driving around an RC track, racing your friends or drifting in a car park! An overnight charger is also included which will safely and easily charge the battery to full capacity.
Powering the E10 is the sturdy and reliable Saturn 27T motor with standard ‘bullet’ type connectors. A 27-turn motor is powerful enough to provide any RC beginner with good acceleration and top speeds, but not so fast as to damage parts in a crash or cause you to lose control.
Beyond its great looks and dependable equipment, the next important function of any entry-level RTR car is to be tough! The E10 does this very well, absorbing all the abuse and damage you can throw its way. HPI designers have many years of experience in designing the best Ready-To-Run cars and trucks in the RC hobby. From the drivetrain and chassis to suspension and bodyshell, the E10 is strong, durable and long-lasting!
The E10 uses a tough shaft drivetrain to put the power to all four wheels, giving it permanent four-wheel drive! Sealed motor gears spin the centre shaft and the front and rear differentials, which give the E10 great cornering ability. With full-time 4WD, you can tackle just about anything the road can throw at you!
The lightweight drivetrain features oversized driveshafts, efficient lubricated bushings and strong plastic parts to make it long-lasting and efficient. The motor is mounted on a unique cam motor mount that is marked for easy gear mesh alignment. A large cover protects the spur gear, and a snap-on cover keeps rocks away from the pinion and spur gear. The central driveshaft has longitudinal ribs to prevent excess flex, and is lightweight to provide maximum acceleration. The central driveshaft turns the front and rear sealed gear differentials. From the diffs, oversize outdrives spin thick dogbones to each wheel, providing power and grip for maximum four-wheel drive action!
Fully enclosed gearbox
Fine pitch gears (0.6 module)
Cam type motor mount for easy gear mesh
Oversized outdrives and dogbones
Large low-friction lubricated bushings
Tough steering linkage
The suspension parts (wishbones, shock towers, uprights and hubs) are all made from thick, long-wearing durable plastic so you don’t have to worry about making a few mistakes from time to time. A tough servo saver does the vital task of keeping the servo’s internal gears intact, and thick steering arms connect the servo to the front steering knuckles to protect the many moving parts of the steering system.
An extra-wide, tough foam front bumper protects the car's front end and bodyshell during crashes and impacts. Protecting the rear of the car is a cool venturi-style bumper that looks like it came right off a GT racing car!
The E10 uses a simple system of threaded hinge pins for the suspension, making repairs easy to complete. Every hinge pin on the car uses this system, meaning there are no e-clips to worry about - something that experienced RC hobbyists will be very happy about!
Overall, the E10 is super-strong and extra-durable to withstand the rigours of driving on any kind of paved surface by RC drivers of any ability level!
With great looks, excellent electronics package and sturdy build, you might think that’s all the E10 has to offer, however this car is a joy to drive! The E10 takes performance cues from previous HPI championship-winning cars and durable design elements and bring them all together for a total package that is fun to drive, tough and featuring great performance!
The underside of the chassis is fully countersunk, which means it’s completely flat for driving over smooth or rough tarmac, and no screws stick out to catch on any debris that might be on your driving surface.
The strong tub shape helps keep rocks and other debris out of the chassis, keeping the car cleaner for easy maintenance.
Giving you the widest range of power options, you can fit any standard 540-size motor in the E10 - these are the hobby motors you can find at any model shop. You can also fit any 5-cell or 6-cell battery in the car, of either hobby stick pack design or the racing side-by-side design.
Racing around on the street or in a car park with your friends has never been so much fun! Dual wishbone suspension means you get handling that is similar the top RC touring cars, giving you cornering and performance that will bring a grin to drivers of all ages and experience levels. Full-time 4WD means you have the grip and power to get yourself out of any kind of trouble on the track. With the unique T-Grip tyres on the E10 your car will stick to the road in nearly all conditions - small rocks and dust won't affect your driving enjoyment!
The E10 is a blast to drive and race, and even better when your friends join in!
If you want to get into the fun and exciting drift driving style, it's easy to convert your road car into a performance drifting machine! Simply remove the motor from the rear of the car, shift the electronics back and re-install the motor in the front of the chassis! Add a set of #4739
Mounted T-Drift tyres and you're ready to get drifting! Full instructions to perform the conversion are included with every E10 kit.
