Jan 08, 2014 No Comments by

You may recall HPI’s Vaughn Gittin Jr. signature-edition Sprint 2 Sport from our June 2013 issue; now you can get the same look on HPI’s fuel-burning Nitro RS4 3 Evo+ platform. The full scoop is at, and as you can see here, it’s an impressive-looking machine–body-on and body-off. Expect the RTR-X to top 50mph without brathing heavy, thanks to its 3cc engine, 2-speed transmission, and claimed 2.2 horsepower output. You’ll see a full review in RCCA as soon as we lay our hands on one.
