Vaughn Gittin Jr. 1969 Ford Mustang
RS4 Sport 3: Featuring the One of a Kind RTR-X!
World Champion Drifter Vaughn Gittin Jr. and the Need for Speed crew teamed up to build this one-of-a-kind, fully-functional Street, Track and Drift machine, and this is the official, authorized RC replica, only from HPI! Balancing 5.0 litres of tire-shredding American horsepower with vintage American, Japanese, European and Drift culture inspired design influences, Vaughn has incorporated state-of-the-art technology while retaining a nostalgic feel into his vision for the 1969 Ford Mustang's timeless body. The RTR-X was designed and built from the ground up to be driven hard; the RTR-X is NOT a trailer queen. While Vaughn will be the only one behind the wheel thrashing it, the entire world will be able to enjoy driving the HPI 1/10th scale RTR-X. The RS4 Sport 3 is a fun, easy to drive and simple to maintain street car, featuring a completely pre-assembled race car chassis for amazing fun and loads of action! We've packed in all the latest features like 2.4GHz control and complete waterproof protection! The chassis is factory assembled right out of the box, making the RS4 Sport 3 a quick and easy way to get straight into driving, racing and honing your skills! This is a complete racing machine that looks and drives just like the real thing!
Underneath the detailed replica body is the RS4 Sport 3 chassis, the latest scale touring car chassis from HPI Racing! The HPI RS4 Sport 3 chassis features full-time 4WD, a completely sealed and highly efficient shaft drivetrain, coil-over shock absorbers, plus waterproof electronics. The fully contained drivetrain means there are no exposed gears, belts or drivetrain parts to get stuck with rocks or dirt. The car is completely assembled and fitted with the 1969 Ford Mustang RTR-X body and 5-spoke deep dish wheels right out of the box, so all you have to do is PLUG IN AND DRIVE!
Official Replica of the Amazing RTR-X
The RS4 Sport 3 features a pre-painted 1969 Ford Mustang RTR-X muscle car body with authentic detailing and decals. The body comes completely trimmed and mounted for the ultimate in ease, and a functional racing wing is fitted for supreme control at all speeds. You'll have concours quality appearance, and you can always customize your car with any of the clear or pre-painted polycarbonate body shells from the huge assortment of HPI bodies and other manufacturers as well! This kit is supplied with a set of awesome wheels fitted with HPI Spec-Grip tyres, AND you get another complete set of wheels fitted with HPI drift tyres, too! You can enjoy grip and drift driving with one kit!
Pre-Mounted Drift & Grip Tyres Included
The RS4 Sport 3 1969 Ford Mustang RTR-X is fitted with a set of HPI Spec-Grip treaded rubber tyres for maximum grip on just about every paved surface. You'll get great acceleration, braking and cornering performance from these semi-slick, grippy rubber tyres! The tyres are moulded in a durable, long-wearing rubber compound that will give you a long life for hours of fun and enjoyment. If going sideways is more your style, we also include a second set of wheels fitted with HPI T-Drift tyres. These low-profile drift-specific tyres are made for high-performance, realistic drift action at 1/10th scale! Just make a quick pit stop to change them over, and you’ll be ready to show off your drift skills in no time.
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 allow Ackermann angle adjustments.
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 centre front and rear with the racing-style vertical ball stud 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.
Adjustable Height Body Mounts
The adjustable height body mounts let you fit any 1/10th scale touring car body from HPI Racing 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.
Tunable Rear Suspension
The rear hub is fitted with a vertical ball stud style adjustment that allows easy rear roll centre adjustment. 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 three different shock mounting holes for easy shock angle adjustment.
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 centre of gravity for enhanced cornering capabilities.
