If the real Dodge Viper GTS-R GTR is your fantasy sports car, you will simply love the remote control version. The 1/10 HPI RS4 Evo 3 is a ready to run nitro powered radio control car that is capable of a top speed of 70 kph. The growling sound of the 2-stroke gas engine, the smell of nitro fuel and the shifting of the 2-speed transmission all add to the realism. Plus this nitro rc car is topped of with an accurate scale replica of the Dodge Viper GTS-R body kit.
The Dodge Viper (R/C) is powered by a 2-stroke engine producing 1.2 horsepower. With a top speed of 70+ kph (actual speed) this is more than just a toy. And not just performance, HPI's scale replica of the Dodge Viper GTS-R body series is simply awesome (see picture above). Bodies are made of clear lexan (polycarbonate) plastic, and are painted on the inside using lexan paints.
Performance wise, in a race from 0 - 60 kph, the R/C car would give the real 2000 Dodge Viper GTS-R a run for its money. Below is a picture of the performance tuned nitro rc car chassis. Note the 2-stroke engine, tuned pipe, oil-filled shock absorbers, rubber racing tires, 4WD, and a 2-speed transmission.
Dodge Viper Nitro RC Car Review
"The heart of the new and improved RTR Nitro RS4 3 Evo is the brand new T-15 engine, providing more mid-range power and top end speed! A tall cast aluminium heatsink head on the T-15 keeps it cool and running smoothly, and the 2-needle carb allows owners to tune the engine precisely for their conditions. The included HPI Roto Start System lets the engine start up with push-button convenience! The T-15 breathes through a large pre-oiled air filter and our aluminium header/composite tuned pipe combo - a great way to get tons of power to the ground!" - HPI Europe
"The Evo model propels the humble RTR 3 into the performance limelight, and it doesn’t shy away from the competition. The gains in speed and overall performance, plus the addition of the electric start system, make the Evo a viable purchase for not just the beginner, but the more advanced driver as well." - R/C Car Magazine
