The Sprint 2 has been a consistently
popular car kit at the club and hobbyist level, and the new Sport
version takes it up another notch! With the Sprint Sport cars, HPI
aims to make the kit even more popular with a few changes to the
electronics package. The RTR Sprint 2 Sport features a completely
pre-assembled chassis with all the major electronics installed. You
get a full set of high quality HPI electronics, from the 15-turn
Firebolt motor to the SC-15 electronic speed control and TF-1 radio
gear. All you have to supply are the 8 AA batteries for the
transmitter, plus the battery and charger for the car. Supplying
the Sprint 2 in this form allows you to pick and choose the exact
battery/charger setup you want, so you can be ready for full
throttle racing or hours of car park fun! This road version adds
specially designed D compound, treaded X-Pattern tyres, pre-mounted
on officially licensed replicas of the famous Volk TE37 wheels. Top
it off with your choice of two different pre-painted bodyshells,
the sleek HPI Toureza or the hulking HPI Fujitsoba Subaru Impreza,
both supplied with vinyl decals and flashy, eye-popping graphics
already applied. The chassis is factory assembled right out of the
box, making the Sprint 2 Sport the quick and easy way to practice
your mad racing skills. The RTR Sprint 2 Sport is a complete
machine that looks and drives just like the real thing!
The Sprint 2 is the perfect club racer and
is the ideal entry into RC racing fun! Its chassis is almost
indestructible and easy to drive, but also has all the racing
features you need for a perfect set up on almost every racetrack.
The stock settings right out of the box will give you great
handling on almost every surface, and with the fully adjustable
suspension you'll have control over all important settings
including camber, toe-, ride height, Ackerman, springs and more
– enough settings to fine-tune your car for low lap times!
What's different about the Sprint 2 Sport is that you get the new
HPI SC-15 electronic speed control and the Firebolt 15-turn
540-size motor for high top speeds and fast acceleration! You get
to choose the battery to use in the car – any stick-pack
style 7.2 volt RC battery fitted with a standard battery connector
will fit in the chassis. Use any RC fast charger to top up the
batteries, and you can keep running and ticking off laps for
The design of the Sprint 2 chassis with its
controlled flexibility gives the car great handling. A belt driven
4 wheel drive system guarantees smooth power transfer and excellent
traction on all surfaces. Plus, the race proven suspension with
real oil filled shock absorbers offer lots of racing features you
wouldn't expect from a beginners car: adjustable camber and toe-in
links, extra long upper links with new multiple mounting positions,
adjustable Ackerman settings, adjustable droop, different caster
and toe in blocks included in the kit... to name but a few. All
features are listed below in great detail.
With a big foam front bumper, a reinforced
chassis, upper deck and shock towers you'll see that 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!
The fully ball raced, dual belt, 4 wheel drive transmission with
only one geared step (48dpi motor pinion to spur gear) is very
efficient and capable of high power modified electric motors.
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 bodyshell resists cracking
and other damage! 8 rubber sealed ball bearings at the wheel axles
and 6 more ball bearings at all other axles don't wear out like
metal or plastic bushings and provide lower friction and more
reliable and sturdy HPI TF-1 radio controls the RTR Sprint 2 Sport,
giving you ultimate control in a realistically designed radio! The
steering wheel design makes you feel as if you're actually driving
the car, and the trigger-style throttle and brake controls provide
you with finger-sensitive action when accelerating and stopping!The
radio transmitter features interchangeable frequency crystals,
servo reverse switches, a retractable aerial with sliding cover,
easy access to radio adjustments and simple battery
Taking the signals from the transmitter,
the HPI RF-1 receiver uses standard RC connectors to send your
control signals to the SF-1 steering servo, which controls the
steering, and the forward/reverse SC-15 speed controller, which
handles the throttle, brake and reverse commands to the Firebolt
15-turn motor. You get long-range, reliable connections between
your transmitter and car with the RF-1 and dependable control from
the SF-1 and SC-15!
15-Turn Firebolt Motor
Giving the RTR
Sprint 2 Sport the ability to get around the track fast is a
15-turn motor, the HPI Firebolt! This fixed-endbell motor has the
grunt and power to give the RTR Sprint 2 Sport plenty of
acceleration and high top speeds! With standard ‘bullet'
connectors, the Firebolt can work with any electronic speed
controller or can be replaced by a faster motor to give you even
more speed and torque.
Choose Your Own Battery and
Charger The Sport versions of the Sprint 2 feature
all the electronics necessary to get running, except the car
battery and charger. This allows you to choose the right batteries
for your purposes: get a handful of packs for car park bashing, or
arm yourself with high-voltage racing packs for top-speed lap
attacks! You can also gear yourself up with a simple peak charger
or a computerized fast charger, it's your choice! Ask at your hobby
shop dealer for the best battery and charger for your needs.
Electronics Because all of the electronics are
standard-size RC components with standardized connectors, any or
all of the components can be upgraded at any time, or moved into a
different RC vehicle in the future. The RTR Sprint 2 Sport will
accept any standard 540-size brushed or brushless motor, plus any
type of 6-cell 7.2v RC battery pack, of either stick pack or
side-by-side design, will fit in the chassis.
When you're ready, it will be very easy to hop up your Sprint 2.
