HPI E10 Drift Fail Crew Nissan Skyline R34 GT-R RTR
From HPI Racing:
The fan favourite E10 Drift platform gets an amazing look with a real-life livery from the amazing Fail Crew!
The full-size version is driven by Russian Fail Crew member and FIA drifting champion Arkady Tsaregradtsev, and now YOU have the opportunity to take the champion’s ride for a spin! Fail Crew is an international crew of pilots that has secured its top rating position at the most prestigious drifting competitions. If you’re up against anyone from Fail Crew on the track, be prepared to – yes, fail! Every crew member’s automobile is an object of modern art on wheels designed by famous Russian artist Ciay
The E10 was designed so anyone can take the wheel and go for a spin! Arriving right out of the box in Ready-To-Run (RTR) form with a fully painted body and a preassembled chassis, it’s a simple matter of “charge and go” for hours of fun!
The RTR E10 includes a high-performance electric motor, plus a waterproof electronic speed controller that features proportional throttle, powerful brakes and convenient reverse functions, allowing it to drive and maneuver just like real cars. An intuitive steering wheel style transmitter with real steering wheel and trigger style throttle/brake controls takes care of the controller duties.
Features, looks, performance and price: the RTR E10 Drift is one of the easiest ways ever to experience the fun and excitement of driving an RC drift car!
HPI RACING WELCOMES ARKADY TSAREGRADTSEV!
We’re super excited to announce our new partnership with Fail Crew’s Arkady Tsaregradtsev! A former street drag racer, Arkady learned how to drift watching videos online! Although he organized Russia’s first drift championships he didn’t have a chance to set up his own drift car until a local tire dealer let him use a Nissan Skyline they couldn’t sell. And the rest is history! In 2017, at the FIA drift championships in Japan, Arkady took the fight to the very drivers that popularized drifting around the world – and won!
Fail Crew members take part in all major world drifting series, such as Drift Allstars, Russian Drift Series, Eastern Europe Drift Series, and make it to the podiums, or at least prizes, most of the time. Check out Arkady on Instagram!
EASY TO DRIVE WITH A REAL STEERING WHEEL CONTROLLER!
The HPI Racing E10 Drift car is super-easy to drive and get familiar with – all you have to do is plug in the included battery and switch on the radio, then the car. It’s that easy! To drive the car, simply pick up the controller with your left hand, put your left index finger into the trigger area, and then put your right hand on the steering wheel – it’s as natural as driving a real car! Turn the wheel to go left and right, and gently pull on the trigger with your left index finger to go forwards. To stop the car, gently push away from you with your left index finger – push again to go into reverse. It takes seconds to get used to this easy operation, and pretty soon you’ll be racing with your friends!
HARD COMPOUND DRIFT TIRES AND COMPETITION WHEELS
The HPI Racing E10 features a set of treaded drift tires for easy drifting on just about every paved surface. You’ll get great acceleration, braking and cornering performance from these slick, hard 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. Each tire is securely glued to a cool-looking competition style wheel, molded from flexible yet firm plastic. The wheels are each coated in a shiny metallic finish to look great on the shelf or on the track! If you want to customize your E10, you can always swap out or replace the wheels and the tires mounted to them, just like a real car!
DISC BRAKES AND CALIPERS!
Along with a great-looking GT-R body and competition wheels, a complete set of replica disc brakes and calipers complete the amazing look of this HPI Racing E10 Drift car. The calipers are mounted to the hubs and uprights, just like on a real car, and the discs turn with the wheels for total realism! (Note: these are not functional brakes! The electric motor does the actual braking.)
REAL WORKING SUSPENSION!
The HPI Racing E10 Drift car is fitted with extra-long double wishbone suspension at all four corners for great control in the corners. Spring-loaded shock absorbers absorb the bumps and dips in the road and the thick upper and lower suspension arms are fitted to durable uprights fitted with ball bearings for maximum runtime and drivetrain longevity.
The HPI Racing E10 is fitted with a strong and reliable steering system and a tough and durable water-resistant servo, taking the steering commands from the handheld controller and turning the wheels left and right through a double bellcrank, giving you complete control! The steering parts are durable yet flexible, allowing them to bounce back after minor crashes so you can keep driving for hours!
4WD SHAFT DRIVETRAIN
With a 4WD shaft drivetrain, the HPI Racing E10 can be driven on just about any paved surface. Thanks to the spur gear and motor pinion cover, debris such as pebbles and stones can’t get caught in the gears to slow you down! A central driveshaft takes the power down the middle of the car, and enclosed gear diffs front and rear transmit the power from the motor to each tire through ball bearing-supported driveshafts at each corner of the car.
