From HPI Racing:
THE ALL-ELECTRIC FORD MUSTANG MACH-E 1400 WITH HPI FLUX POWER!
This Sport 3 FLUX features the amazing 4WD, all-electric Ford Mustang Mach-E with styling tuned and tweaked by the Fun-Haver himself, professional drifting champion Vaughn Gittin Jr., to become the awesome Ford Mustang Mach-E 1400 prototype, a test bed for advanced materials and technologies. With SEVEN electric motors and super-high downforce levels, it’s not just a research vehicle – it’s also an all-out performer perfect for a variety of automotive tests, from the drag strip, drift course and race track! The full-size version took over 10,000 hours of development work between Ford Performance and RTR to make sure it bridges the gap between what an electric vehicle can do and what customers tend to believe it can do.
Under the hood, the 1/10th scale version Ford Mustang Mach-E 1400 is equipped with the latest HPI Racing Touring Car chassis, the Sport 3 FLUX! With a full-time shaft drive, fully sealed 4WD drivetrain, brushless motor and waterproof electronics and 2.4GHz radio gear, fully independent double wishbone suspension and adjustable oil filled shocks it’s Ready to Rock in any condition – and HPI FLUX power means it’s got plenty of power for 4-wheel drifts and jaw-dropping speeds at the pull of a trigger!
The officially licensed, super realistic Ford Mustang Mach-E 1400 replica features a custom Ford Performance livery to match the car’s one-off status, plus molded plastic dive planes, rear wing, side mirrors and diffuser to finish off the custom look!
RTR TECH 7 WHEELS
The RTR Tech 7 wheel combines the classic mesh wheel design with a modern, angular look that is both aggressive and functional, yet drenched with muscle car style. For full-size muscle car fans, this wheel is available ONLY for the Ford Mustang in a 20-inch size, however just for you they are perfectly replicated in 1/10th scale on this officially authorized scale replica Ford Mustang Mach-E 1400!
HPI SPEC-GRIP TIRES
Each wheel is wrapped in HPI’s tried and tested 26mm SPEC-GRIP rubber tires, complete with multi condition tread and high traction rubber “K” compound for maximum grip on just about every paved surface. You’ll get great acceleration, braking and cornering performance from these semi-slick, grippy rubber tires! The tires are molded in a durable, long-wearing rubber compound that will give you a long life for hours of fun and enjoyment.
DESIGNED WITH RTR AND THE FUN-HAVER HIMSELF!
The Mach-E 1400 was a collaboration between Ford and RTR, the design house of World Champion pro drifter and Ford Mustang icon, Vaughn Gittin Jr! It’s a spectacular mix of classic Mustang design and high-end motorsport performance that any car enthusiast will appreciate. Vaughn has been customizing Mustangs for years using his own RTR options, available from select Ford dealerships around the world.
ONE-PIECE MOLDED CHASSIS
The main chassis is formed from a single piece of reinforced plastic and features the drivetrain tunnel molded right down the middle, just like a real car. It’s a step beyond any plastic tub chassis car available today.
LOW PROFILE LAYOUT DESIGN
One of the ways we gave the Sport 3 FLUX the best possible handling was to make sure all the components fit as low as possible in the chassis. This gives the car an amazingly low center of gravity for optimum cornering capabilities.
3S LIPO CAPABLE
The Sport 3 FLUX features a versatile electronic speed controller that can be used with modern lithium-polymer (LiPo) or nickel-metal hydride (NiMH) batteries. Please note a LiPo adapter plug is not included, your model shop will be able to provide one.
FITS A WIDE VARIETY OF BATTERIES
The Sport 3 FLUX chassis can fit lithium-polymer (LiPo) and nickel-metal hydride (NiMH) packs of various sizes, including the extra-long 7-cell NiMH packs. Whatever your power requirements, it can hold it all! A thick hook-and-loop strap holds the pack securely in place, and a simple battery block screws into place to allow you to adjust the weight distribution forward or backward for extra steering or acceleration.
HPI FLUX TECHNOLOGY FOR ULTRA-FAST SPEEDS
What sets apart the Sport 3 FLUX from our other offerings is the HPI Flux brushless power installed in every Flux-powered machine. The Sport 3 FLUX is fitted with the awesome FLUX MMH-4000 motor, one of our most powerful motors for 1/10th scale cars. Thanks to the robust FLUX EMH-3S speed controller, you can strap in your choice of 2S or 3S LiPo power (or a 7.2v-8.4v NiMH battery with a suitable T-plug) to give the car an unbelievable power out of the turns and speeds of up to 70mph (124km/h) on the straight, when using optional gearing!
*To achieve 70mph you will need the 114569 – HIGH SPEED GEAR SET and 160162 – PLAZMA 11.1V 3200mAh 35C LiPo Battery Pack
ALL-NEW RADIO GEAR
Like all HPI cars, the Sport 3 is easy to drive with the included steering wheel controller.
The All-New 2.4Ghz FHSS TF-50 Transmitter features:
Drop down steering position for a natural control position
Foam covered wheel for extra comfort and grip
Swappable steering wheel design for left handers!
Rubber finger and thumb handle grips

The NEW RF-50 receiver features a waterproof silicone inner jacket for use in any weather and a built-in failsafe – Signal on the RF-50 for the FLUX cars and signal and battery life for the RF-50N on the Nitro!
FULL-TIME FOUR-WHEEL DRIVE
The Sport 3 FLUX features full-time four-wheel drive to give you the most control and precision on the road or track. All four wheels are driven by heavy duty gear differentials at the front and rear, just like a real car. The extra traction gives you increased acceleration and cornering control for maximum confidence and fun.
SEALED SHAFT DRIVETRAIN
The drivetrain of all the Sport 3 FLUX models features the motor mounted longitudinally in the molded chassis, next to the long driveshaft that goes down the center of the car. The entire drivetrain, including the central driveshaft and gear diffs, is completely sealed to prevent dirt, rocks and debris from damaging or binding the drivetrain. The driveshaft, diffs and axles spin on ball bearings to maximize drivetrain efficiency.
The central driveshaft that connects the front and rear differentials is easily accessed from underneath the chassis. This allows the drivetrain to be completely sealed to protect it from rocks and debris no matter where you may want to drive your car.
OPTION: CARBON FIBER DRIVESHAFT COVER
You can easily replace the stock driveshaft cover on the bottom of the chassis with a carbon fiber cover that provides extra stiffness and extra-cool looks.
EASY ACCESS DIFFERENTIALS
Getting to the differentials for quick adjustments is a matter of removing just 4 screws – this allows you to pop out the diff and change the grease, check the gears or just give it a general service.
4-GEAR METAL DIFFS
Bevel gear differentials at each end of the car transfer power from the driveshaft to the dogbones and axles that drive each wheel. The all-metal construction allows the drivetrain to withstand powerful brushless motors for easy upgrading in the future. Rubber-sealed ball bearings support the differentials and each diff can be tuned independently by changing the diff grease.
OPTION: DIFF SPOOL
The optional diff spool removes all diff action for direct traction and braking action from your trigger finger straight to the wheels.
DOUBLE-WISHBONE FULLY ADJUSTABLE SUSPENSION
The suspension of the Sport 3 FLUX uses the race-proven double-wishbone suspension design, similar to a full-scale modern race car. You’ll be able to control the anti-squat and anti-dive of the front and rear arms using the standard pivot blocks, and the option parts allow you to adjust the sweep and toe angles. You’ll also be able to easily change the roll center front and rear with the racing-style vertical ballstud mounting on both the inner and outer camber link mounts. Multiple shock mounting positions provide a full range of shock suspension angle adjustment to suit different road conditions.
MULTIPLE SHOCK POSITIONS
OPTION: CARBON FIBER SHOCK TOWERS
The option pair of carbon fiber shock towers not only look amazing, but also adds extra stiffness to the suspension for optimal performance. The carbon fiber material is extra-lightweight which lowers the center of gravity on the Sport 3 as well.
OIL-FILLED THREADED SHOCKS
The Sport 3 FLUX is fitted with a set composite coilover-style oil-filled shocks, just like what you’d see on a real race car! The fully adjustable shocks are fully tunable to provide the optimum chassis performance on a wide variety of road surfaces. The ride height is quickly adjustable by using the threaded shock collars. Further tuning adjustments are also possible by changing the springs and shock oil weight.
OPTION: ANODIZED ALUMINUM THREADED SHOCKS
For optimum performance, you’ll want a set of anodized aluminum threaded shocks that are machined to perfection. The full anodized aluminum threaded shock body, aluminum shock collar, aluminum top and bottom caps will allow you to make the most precise tuning adjustments.
TOUGH FRONT END SUSPENSION
The Sport 3 FLUX front end uses the strong C-hub style suspension seen on the latest RC touring cars, with a vertical ball stud camber mount that lets you change the front end roll center – which is a critical racing adjustment that allows the Sport 3 FLUX to be a step above other sport-level RC touring cars. The suspension arm also features multiple shock mounting holes for easy shock angle adjustment.
TUNABLE REAR SUSPENSION
The rear hub is fitted with a vertical ball stud style adjustment that allows easy adjustment of the rear roll center. Moving the ball stud up or down with the optional spacers changes the traction characteristics of the rear end as the car goes through the turns. The suspension arm also features 3 different shock mounting holes for easy shock angle adjustment.
OPTION: CVD DRIVESHAFTS
The optional all-in-one CVD drive shafts greatly increases the precision and efficiency of the entire driveline and steering for maximum driving performance.
OPTION: ADJUSTABLE CAMBER LINK TURNBUCKLES
The optional set of adjustable turnbuckles will allow you to quickly fine tune the camber setting of your Sport 3 FLUX for optimum performance.
DOUBLE BELLCRANK STEERING
The performance tested adjustable double bell crank system provides optimum steering precision at all speeds. A metal drag link plate connects the cranks for extra durability, the additional drag link mounting positions also allows for Ackermann angle adjustments.
RUGGED SPRING-LOADED SERVO SAVER
The Sport 3 includes an adjustable multipiece cam-style servo saver, which protects the servo from crash damage. In the event of a crash or collision, the front wheels usually take a big portion of the blow and transmits the impact directly to the steering servo. The strong spring-loaded cam action of the servo saver is designed to absorb this force and protect the servo gears from the impact!
ALUMINUM MOTOR MOUNT
The cast aluminum cam-style motor mount holds the motor in place for a secure pinion/spur connection. Two screws hold the cam firmly in position on the mount, and cooling fins on the lateral support aid heat dissipation to keep the motor running as efficiently as possible.
METAL-SHIELDED BALL BEARINGS
The Sport 3 is fully fitted with a set of metal-shielded ball bearings for maximum efficiency. The metal shields keep the dust away from the internals while the smooth precision bearings provides for optimum power delivery from the power source out into the driveline.
RUGGED FRONT BUMPER
To protect the front suspension, chassis and body from impacts big and small, an extra thick foam bumper is securely fastened to the front of the Sport 3 FLUX.
CUSTOMIZE YOUR LOOK
A huge variety of option bodies, wheels and tires from HPI lets you fully customize the style of your Sport 3 to suit your style.
ADJUSTABLE HEIGHT BODY MOUNTS
The adjustable height body mounts let you fit any 1/10th scale touring car body from HPI Racing on to the Sport 3 chassis. All you need to do is adjust the front and rear body mounts to allow the wheels and chassis elements to fit properly underneath the body. Body pins hold the mounts in place, and the multiple mounting hole positions allow you to fine-tune the exact body fitment.
You can fit any 1/10th scale touring car body from HPI Racing onto the Sport 3, from hot hatches to supercars, pick-up trucks to supertouring racers. All you need to do is adjust the body mounts front and rear to allow the wheels to fit underneath the body properly. A simple system using body pins hold the mounts in place, and you can fine-tune the fit to get the exact ride height you want.
