Dec 07, 2012 No Comments by

This Blitz comes loaded with a 4300KV brushless motor, 2.4GHz radio system, and Megabite racing tires. Check out all the features in the press release below:

The HPI Blitz is now available with a super-fast Flux brushless system for extreme speed and power! The Blitz took the Short Course scene by storm by combining the best in durability, performance, looks, style and innovation all into one ready-to-run package, and now it has more power than ever! With 4300KV on tap from the Flux Shot 4300 motor, controlled by the powerful Flux Reload V2 speed controller, the Blitz Flux is ready for anything!

The Blitz Flux RTR is also equipped with a high quality 2.4GHz radio system for crystal free driving, along with a waterproof Flux speed controller and receiver box for wet weather excitement. Topping everything off is a fresh new Skorpion body and graphics that has as much function as it does form.

Waterproof!

The Blitz is fully waterproof and ready to tackle all wet conditions like rain, snow, and mud. The 2.4GHz receiver is safely stored in a waterproof receiver box, protecting it from the elements and ensuring glitch-free operation. A waterproof steering servo and Flux ESC complete the package for total confidence in all weather conditions.

2.4GHz 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!

Flux Shot Motor and Flux Reload V2 Speedo

The HPI Flux system installed in the Blitz Flux kits features mind-bending brushless technology similar to what makes the Savage Flux HP and Vorza Flux HP kits so absolutely insane – truly awesome power packed into a compact and tidy package!

The Flux Shot 4300KV motor features modern brushless inner workings wrapped with a cool black-anodized heatsink case, while the Flux Reload speedo 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 Blitz Flux will be able to handle up to 3S LiPo batteries to give the truck insane speeds and acceleration! Go on, give it a try – you know you want to!

FEATURES

EYE CATCHING LOOKS

The Blitz is topped off with the awesome Skorpion body in an all-new matte black and carbon design to give it aggressive racing looks and make it stand out on the track! The Skorpion body has received treatments in various areas to aid in the overall handling and feeling of the truck, both while driving it, and also while airborne. The body comes in two slick new color offerings, pre-cut and ready to go.

HB Megabite SC Racing tires

To give the Blitz Flux all the traction you need to get around the track in record time, we’ve installed a full set of racing Megabite tires from HB on our latest racing wheels. You’ll have plenty of grip for getting past the other drivers and loads of steering in the corners!

High Performance Shocks

For extra traction and performance, the Bliz Flux is fitted with high performance racing shocks that are tunable and perfect for off-road racing abuse. These long-stroke, oil-filled, coilover units are just the thing the Blitz Flux can use to help you outwit the other racers at your local track!

HPI FLUX SHOT 4300KV MOTOR

The Flux Shot 4300KV motor is equivalent to a 9-turn motor, giving the Blitz Flux a huge increase in power from before! It’s the ideal powerplant for anyone wanting to dominate the race track or do insane speed runs! With its black anodized, machine aluminum heatsink casing, it looks extra-cool too!

HPI FLUX RELOAD V2 SPEED CONTROLLER

If you’re looking for a electronic speed control that is totally waterproof and protected from the elements as well as being fully programmable, and suitable for 3S LiPo power, look no further than the Flux Reload V2 Brushless ESC! This speedo has everything you could want for fun running and bashing – and if you want to take it to the track that’s great too! It can handle up to 60 continuous amps, 3S batteries, is completely waterproof and includes a built-in fan for total confidence in all conditions. You can also completely customize the programming with the #101280 Flux 2 in 1 Pro Program Box!
