|Drift events like D1 Grand Prix are becoming extremely popular in Japan and America, and have made full scale drifting one of the most exciting and fastest growing motor sports in the world.
The thrill of sideways drift action has been captured in the new Sprint 2 Stage-D drift kit, available in two cool drift style versions with a Nissan Silvia S15 or Mazda RX-8 body shell.
The new Sprint 2 Stage-D drift kit is based on HPI’s very popular electric powered Sprint 2 club racer.
Its sandwich chassis with reinforced base plate and upper deck molded from crash resistant high impact nylon make the Sprint 2 almost indestructible. The design of the chassis with its controlled flexibility gives the Sprint 2 great handling.
The fully ball raced, dual belt, 4 wheel drive transmission with only one geared step is very efficient and capable of high power modified electric motors (up to 10 turns).
|Equipped with Drift wheels and tyres for maximum drifting! ||Better handling and great tunability on the race track! |
|Realistic damping characteristic - better handling ||Handles the heat even of hot modified motors! |
|Made of high quality glass fibre reinforced high impact nylon. ||Additional protection against front impacts! |
|Capable of high power tuning motors up to 10-turns! ||Free transmission and a lot better durability than plastic bearings! |
|Low maintenance and excellent durability! ||Quick and easy battery exchange for all battery configurations |
Special #34501 STAGE-D 04S drift tyres are included. Molded from hard compound rubber these tyres have been developed purely for drifting. The HPI Japan drift team did extensive testing to find a hard compound that allows high revving drifting on paved surfaces, with extreme durability for hours and hours of drift action.
For the realistic drift look the Sprint 2 Stage-D drift car is available with two different JDM-style tuner car bodies including cool "art factory graphics decals" - Mazda RX-8 and the Nissian Sylvia.
Shiny chrome #3827 deep rim 5 spoke wheels make the look perfect
Tough and durable!
With a big foam front bumper, a reinforced chassis, upper deck and toughened shock towers, the Sprint 2 can take the abuse of racing on the track and on the street! All important chassis and suspension parts are made from high quality, high impact nylon which makes the Sprint 2 almost indestructible!
With sealed gear differentials front and rear, you never have to worry about time-intensive diff rebuilds on your Sprint 2. The strong and flexible HPI polycarbonate body shell resists cracking and other damages! 8 rubber sealed ball bearings at the wheel axels and 6 more ball bearings at all the other axels don't wear out like metal or plastic bushings, providing lower friction and more speed.
Upgradeable, customisable, tuneable!
The Sprint 2 Stage-D drift kit also has got all the racing features you need for a perfect set up on almost every surface or race track.
The "out of the box" settings will give you a great handling for drift action but with the fully adjustable suspension, you have control over all important settings if you wish to fine tune your car - including camber, toe in, ride height, Ackerman, springs etc.
