New HPI Calsonic R32 GTR R/C Car Available!

10 Feb

The chassis is a marvel in space efficiency, packing in features rarely found on small scale RC cars. High tech electronics are used to combine the 2.4GHz receiver and the fully proportional electronic speed control into a compact single control unit. A dedicated SH-34 steering servo delivers precise proportional steering for realistic steering and handling. All of the electronics are sandwiched securely in the chassis, but they can be individually removed for maintenance or performance upgrades.
For stable handling the RS32 uses a proven T-bar rear suspension and a reliable gear differential on the rear axle, perfect for maneuvering the tight turns found on indoor race tracks. Up front is a swing-arm suspension with adjustments for spring rate and suspension travel. The molded rubber tires deliver high grip and long tire life on surfaces ranging from concrete to wood to short-pile carpet.

Topping it all off is a super scale reproduction of the legendary #1 Calsonic sponsored Nissan Skyline R32 from the 1991 JTC series. The body has incredible details normally only found on the finest scale models. It’s all there: mirrors, light buckets, rear wing, tinted windows, rear window defroster, windshield wipers. And of course, the shape, colors, and decals are all spot-on and fully licensed by Nissan. Ultra realistic RC at its finest, from HPI Racing!

Just an awesome machine

I had the pleasure to see it up close and personal at the 2004 GT Live Event in Fontana, CA.   We flew across the country for a weekend just for the chance to see some of the most insane race cars on the planet.  We had an absolutely amazing time!
