The HB R10 is the latest kit from the minds at HB-HPI to enter the exciting and fast world of 1/10th scale on-road touring car racing! This time, we’re diving into the nitro end of the racing arena, with a unique, high-spec nitro touring car kit that is sure to amaze nitro racing fans!

Top-level nitro touring cars are a completely different type of racing class compared to electric touring cars – you can’t just add an engine to any touring car design and be off to the races. Properly designing and testing a car takes months, even years plus the standard of materials and design has to be at the highest level. At over 60mph, even on smaller tracks, every componenent has to serve a purpose and be designed to perform! That’s why only the best materials went into the R10: titanium, aircraft aluminum, carbon graphite, top-grade composites and more.

The R10 is built from the ground up to perform and to win. Experience the thrill of nitro racing with a World Championship racing team!
