Blast Away with the Updated, Waterproof Bullet MT Flux!
Introducing the refreshed HPI Bullet MT Flux, the ready-built off-road vehicle that's ideal for all off-road bashers and enthusiasts! Now featuring a waterproof receiver and battery compartment and waterproof servos, the Bullet MT Flux is truly a go-anywhere machine! This Bullet is a 1/10th scale monster truck fitted with a powerful 4WD drivetrain and a super-powerful HPI Flux Brushless System featuring waterproof electronics, 3S capability and Li-Po cutoff, so it can power through all sorts of terrain and fly over any obstacles! Now fitted with a versatile and comfortable HPI 2.4GHz radio system, it's easier than ever to control the speed of the Bullet! The Bullet MT Flux is just one member of a family of HPI vehicles which are based around a durable 4WD shaft drivetrain, 2 shocks per wheel and double-deck aluminium chassis. The Bullet off-road trucks feature either the silent Flux brushless system or Nitro Star 3.0 engine, and are available in different off-road truck varieties. In short, you can get the precise flavour of off-road performance you want with the HPI Bullet!
2.4GHz Radio System
All HPI kits are 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 a realistic steering wheel, 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!
The Bullet Flux trucks now feature a cool waterproof electronics compartment for the battery and receiver, a sealed waterproof switch, waterproof steering servo and finally a waterproof speedo that allows you to keep running your Bullet in extreme conditions that would kill almost just about any other vehicle! Want to tackle that muddy bug? How about that stream crossing? A bit of rain about to fall? It's all good for the Bullet MT Flux! Please note: This HPI vehicle is designed to provide water protection so it can be driven in wet conditions (e.g. rain, snow, puddles). Not for submersion. See manual for details.
Formed from 6061 aluminium for a combination of strength and light weight, the Bullet Flux chassis is durable and looks great! Thick sheet aluminium is stamped into shape to form the ideal backbone for all the various components that make the Bullet trucks so tough! The front kick-up provides extra control at all speed, essential for a go-anywhere, do-anything vehicle like the Bullet. The sides are also bent upwards to give extra ground clearance in tight turns, but also vastly increased longitudinal stiffness - perfect for all your off-road adventures!
The drivetrain used in all Bullet trucks is a full-time four-wheel drive shaft-type drivetrain, just like the one used in 1/8th scale buggies like the World Champion D812 buggy. A shaft drivetrain is the best option for a kit that's expected to encounter every possible driving condition and track surface, so whether you're blasting through mud, water, dirt, grass, snow or gravel, this is exactly what you what you want!
A strong plastic 54-tooth spur gear takes the power from the engine and transmits it front and rear through an adjustable dual pad slipper clutch. A dual pad slipper provides more protection to the drivetrain than a standard single pad design, and we've included it as standard to make sure you get the best out of the Bullet. The center dogbones drive the front and rear bevel differentials, which use 4 internal gears for increased durability and lifetime over weaker 2-gear diffs. Braking power is provided by the HPI Flux brushless motor, giving just as much stopping strength as the steel disc brake supplied on nitro versions of the Bullet! Just push the controller trigger forward for immense brakes and the ability to stop whenever you want!
The diff outdrives turn tough steel outdrives and axles, and 14mm hex adapters spin the cool styled wheels wrapped with all-terrain tractor-tread rubber tyres. For extra efficiency, all the components of the drivetrain, from the spur gear to the wheel axles, spin on long-life, rubber-sealed ball bearings. With these bearings you get long runtimes and long engine life while the rubber seals keep out dust and grime!
Suspension and Steering
The Bullet ST Flux uses a tough suspension design derived from larger racing trucks, but with a few extra bits for increased durability! Long suspension arms are damped by 2 oil-filled shock absorbers each, and tough front and rear bumpers combined with skid plates protect both ends of the truck in just about every collision.
Extra-long suspension arms provide stability, and thick suspension pins give you extra insurance against crash damage. The suspension arms feature a solid construction for extra-tough construction and extreme durability. Multiple shock mounting locations let you fine-tune the handling for whatever you plan to be doing. Go ahead and try it - even though it's perfectly set at the factory for neutral handling, we don't mind if you try something new!
8 extra-long shock absorbers control the damping on the Bullet ST Flux, and are precisely filled with oil for exceptional handling in turns and cushioning when landing big jumps. With big coil-over springs they are the perfect match to the long suspension arms! The shocks are customizable with HPI oils and springs, as well as different shock mount locations.
Tough nylon suspension parts include the hubs, steering knuckles, and rear uprights, which are designed to endure any sort of punishment. The front hubs have an oversized rock guard to keep pebbles and stones away from the dogbone/axle joint. Optional shock mounting points are provided on the suspension arms for lowering the stance of the truck slightly (great for running on-road) and stiffening up the suspension at the same time, without using option parts.
The waterproof SF-10W steering servo is powerful and reliable, and is more than strong enough to steer the front wheels when the truck is stopped, and can take the hits of jumps and crashes thanks to a strong spring-loaded servo saver.
Strong steel turnbuckles link connects the servo to the steering hubs through a reliable bellcrank steering system. The turnbuckles are light yet strong, and allow you to tune the Bullet with different toe settings. For advanced tuning, turnbuckle links let you make quick adjustments, and even the steering links use turnbuckles so you can change the front toe setting if you wanted.
Do you want on-demand wheelies? Go on, give it a try - you know you want to! Finally, the Flux EMH-3S speedo can be fully customized with the amazing #101280 2 in 1 Professional Program Card! Turn your forward/brake/reverse speed controller into a forward/brake only controller for racing, or a forward/reverse controller for rock crawling! Fine tune things like initial punch, braking power, drag brake and more, with just the push of a button!
