HPI has updated the Bullet ST Flux to make it more water resistant with a waterproof receiver and battery compartment along with waterproof servos. Read the official press release below for more info:
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 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 aluminum 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 flavor of off-road performance you want with the HPI Bullet!
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.
2.4GHz Radio System
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!
The HPI Flux system installed in the updated Bullet Flux kits features the same mind-bending brushless technology that makes the Savage XS, Savage Flux HP and Vorza Flux HP kits so absolutely insane – truly awesome power packed into a compact and tidy package!
The incredible power from the Flux Shot motor gives the lightweight Bullet Flux trucks an immense power-to-weight ratio for ripping acceleration and blinding top speed!
The Flux Shot motor features modern brushless inner workings wrapped with a cool black-anodized heatsink case, while the updated waterproof Flux Reload speed controller features bullet connectors for the motor, Dean’s plug battery connector and even a cooling fan right on top to keep things ice-cold! The power switch and setting button are both completely waterproof, and the electric connections are surrounded with a waterproof compound that lets you bomb through mud and puddles without a worry!
The Bullet can handle up to 7 NiMH cells or 3S LiPo batteries to give the truck insane top speeds and amazing acceleration! Do you want on-demand wheelies? Go on, give it a try – you know you want to!
Finally, the Flux Reload V2 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!
Formed from 6061 aluminum for a combination of strength and light weight, the Bullet Flux chassis is durable, looks great and forms the ideal backbone for all the various components that make the Bullet trucks so tough!
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 D8 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 standard 2-gear diffs. 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 tires.
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!
For extra efficiency, all the components of the drivetrain, from the spur gear to the wheel axles, spin on 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 MT 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. Both shocks on each arm are ‘captured’, meaning the mounting screw attaches on both sides of the shock end for extra durability in any type of conditions.
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.
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. 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!
The shock absorbers are factory-fitted just like everything else on the Bullet MT 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! Optional 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 hubs, steering knuckles, and rear uprights, are made of tough nylon plastic for enduring any sort of punishment. The front hubs have an oversized rock guard to keep pebbles and stones away from the dogbone/axle joint.
