Dec 10, 2012 1 Comment by

This cars comes with a Flux Vektor Pro ESC and 4000kv brushless motor, TF-40 2.4GHz radio system, waterproof servos, and more. Check out all the goods in the press release below:

Starting with drivetrain from the Bullet Flux-powered truck, our designers had the perfect starting point to make an all-new electric rally car, and with improvements to the suspension and wheelbase, the WR8 Flux chassis was born! The WR8 Flux keeps the tough bevel gear differentials, 4WD shaft drivetrain and fully ball bearing-supported drivetrain of the Bullet Flux truck, but adds new suspension geometry, thick sway bars, plus scale WRC-style tarmac tyres and wheels to make it a true rally contender! The all-new 2012 Ford World Rally Team livery brings the WR8 Flux up to speed with the latest World Rally Championship styling!

FEATURES:

Authentic WRC SCALE LOOKS AND PERFORMANCE

To make it a complete scale package, our bodyshell designers got to work replicating the 2012 Ford Fiesta RS WRC used by the Ford World Rally Team, the official Ford works rally team. This car saw action all around the world, from New Zealand to Norway, Great Britain to Germany! The shape and decals of this championship contender are absolutely spot-on, and when you add the officially licensed Abu Dhabi/Castrol livery, scale tarmac tyres and OZ wheels, it’s impossible to distinguish it from the real thing!

HPI FLUX VEKTOR 4000Kv MOTOR

The Flux VEKTOR 4000Kv motor delivers massive power – plenty of juice for instant acceleration and enough power to pull out of just about any sideways drift. Option pinion gears are available to fine-tune the speed and torque delivery! The brushless design assures maximum performance with nearly no maintenance required.

FLUX VAPOR PRO SPEED CONTROLLER

With the capacity to handle 2S and 3S LiPo power, the Flux VAPOR Pro electronic speed control can take anything you can possibly throw at it and keep coming back for more! The VAPOR Pro features an integrated cooling fan to keep it cool in tough conditions. The Flux VAPOR Pro ESC is reversible so you can back out of jams with ease. For maximum adjustability it’s fully programmable with our optional #100573 USB Programming Ki.

HPI TF-40 2.4GHz RADIO SYSTEM

Controlling the Ken Block WR8 FLUX with Ford Fiesta H.F.H.V. is easy with the HPI TF-40 2.4GHz radio system. No need to worry about changing crystals, the radio prevents frequency conflicts automatically. The TF-40 pistol grip transmitter features adjustments for steering trim, throttle trim, steering dual rate, end points, servo reversing switches, low battery indicator and a 3rd channel for optional accessories.

WATERPROOF SF-10W SERVO

Sealed waterproof HPI SF-10W steering servo.

ADJUSTABLE GEAR DIFFERENTIALS

Sealed adjustable front, center and rear gear differentials and silicone oil-filed center differential for high traction and drivetrain protection.

RALLY TUNED SUSPENSION ARMS

Fully adjustable suspension arms features droop screw, multiple shock mounting positions and structural reinforcement for increased durability. New mudguards are held securely in place via two button head screws while the mud guards themselves protect the shock shafts from debris in order to promote increased seal longevity.

TUNABLE SILICONE OIL FILLED SHOCKS

Fully adjustable silicone oil filled shocks dampen the bumps and is completely tunable for on road or off road terrain.

3MM COUNTERSUNK ALUMINUM CHASSIS

The 3mm aluminum chassis is the foundation of a tough and durable racing machine, and features composite braces front and rear, cool silver anodizing and countersunk screws on the bottom for zero interference going over obstacles. The dirt guards keep the worst mud and dirt from getting into the chassis and protect the chassis as well.

HIGH EFFICIENCY SHAFT FULL TIME 4WD DRIVETRAIN

The WR8 FLUX is equipped with a shaft drivetrain. It also includes three oil-filled gear diffs with bevel gears, a full-time 4WD drivetrain supported by rubber-sealed ball bearings, high-strength steel driveshafts, axles and much more!
