HPI's most popular Nitro RTR car gets even faster!
We've updated the amazing Nitro RS4 RTR 3 Evo with some new bodyshells and an even faster engine, for maximum fun and excitement! The Nitro RS4 line of cars has historically been aimed directly at the beginner - to intermediate-level RC hobbyist, the driver who wants a fast car with great handling that's ready-made to go out and thrash the pavement!
With this latest version, we've added the hot new T3.0 engine to the Nitro 3 RTR + to give it a huge boost in power! The T3.0 is based on the potent G3.0 from the Firestorm 10T stadium racing truck, so you know it's going to be fast!
All of the latest HPI kits are now fitted with a comfortable and feature-packed HPI 2.4GHz radio system for supreme control and confidence! The radio features a pistol-grip design with drop-down steering wheel, 3 channel functionality, easy carry handle, fold-down aerial, end point adjustments, servo reversing and steering dual rate. It's also extremely lightweight due to it requiring only four AA batteries.
You won't have to worry about radio crystals or what channel other RC racers are using with our 2.4GHz technology - the radio does all that work for you! The radio prevents frequency conflicts automatically and changes channels if there is any interference. Finally, if you ever lose radio signal or battery power, an electronic failsafe will bring it to a safe and controlled stop. You'll have professional-level control in one easy RTR package!
To help get your new RTR Nitro RS4 3 Evo+ running as quickly as possible, a rechargeable 7.2V Plazma 2000mAh battery pack and AC wall charger are now included to power the Roto-Start electronic starting system, along with Plazma AA's for your transmitter and receiver. We've also included a glow igniter, spare glow plug, multi-purpose wrench, and a fuel bottle so all you need to get is fuel from your local hobby shop and you're ready to start racing. It doesn't get any easier than that!
Nitro Star T3.0 engine
The Nitro Star T3.0 engine is the powerhouse behind the impressive speed of the RTR Nitro RS4 3 Evo+ car. With 2.2 horsepower on tap combined with the Nitro 3's 2-speed transmission, you can get off the starting line fast and reach immense top speeds in no time! The engine is started by a simple pullstarter system and is protected by the included 2-stage air filter for extra protection, and the two-needle carburretor allows you to fine-tune the performance of the engine for any kind of weather or fuel.

FULLY ASSEMBLED AND PREPARED CHASSIS
We make things extra easy for you to get driving quick. The car is completely assembled by professionals and ready to go right out of the box, so all you have to do is add fuel and batteries to get running!
TWO SPEED TRANSMISSION
The standard two-speed transmission gives you a killer combination of fast acceleration and massive top speed! It's also easily adjustable so you can tune it for maximum speed attacks or for short, twisty circuits.
ALUMINIUM TUNED PIPE
To give the engine as much power as possible, a tuned exhaust system is installed to give the car as much low-end torque as possible, while allowing it to breathe as much as it needs to to get maximum revs for huge top speed!
SUPER TOUGH SHAFT DRIVE
The Nitro RS4 3's reliable shaft drive powers the wheels through a system of ball-bearing supported shafts and axles, so you get the maximum power available from the T3.0 engine. You won't have to worry about fragile belt drive systems getting stuck with rocks or pebbles!
STRONG DISC BRAKE
A powerful disc brake system gives the car efficient and strong braking power for quick turns and avoiding danger. It's easily adjustable to make the braking more or less intense, so you can dial in the braking force for the traction conditions you're racing in.
REMOVEABLE SEALED RADIO BOX
The easily removeable radio tray contains all the electronics for simple cleaning of the chassis, and keeps fuel and dirt away from the electronics. Body clips hold the tray securel in place and there's plenty of room in the main compartment for the standard 4 AA battery holder or the optional #2012
rechargeable 5-cell 'hump' battery pack.
INDEPENDENT DUAL WISHBONE SUSPENSION
Just like a real racing car, the Nitro RS4 3 features dual wishbones to provide all the suspension action, with a large lower A-arm and solid upper camber links. Oil-filled shocks with racing progressive springs control the movement of the arms, and are easily tunable - just like a full-size racer!
An easy-to-use RotoStart is included for fast and easy engine starting. Simply prime the engine, attach the glow plug igniter, then give the RotoStart button a push to get running fast!
A strong 2-speed transmission system spins the durable and proven shaft drivetrain. Using a 2-speed tranny assures you of quick acceleration and corner exits as well as maximum top speed! Sealed ball bearings keep everything running efficiently so you get as much runtime as possible.
A thick countersunk aluminum chassis provides a solid backbone to the car, and the removable radio tray makes it easy to give everything a quick wipe after you're done at the track. To keep things under control, the Nitro RS4 RTR 3 Evo + uses real oil-filled shocks, just like the high-end racing cars!
The Nitro RS4 RTR 3 Evo + is the latest chapter in the HPI nitro story - it continues the HPI tradition of tough, easy to use and dependable cars that are fun to run and a joy to own!
A full range of option parts, ranging from woven graphite shock towers and upper deck to aluminum-body shocks, is available to pimp out the car and make it the most unique at your club!
HPI makes it as easy as possible to get into RC racing action. The RTR Nitro RS4 3 Evo+ is completely pre-built and ready to go right out of the box!
