An enclosed box houses the 2.4GHz radio receiver, ensuring that you have constant control through the HPI pistol-grip steering wheel transmitter.
FORD GT HERITAGE EDITION
Designed to celebrate the Ford Motor Company's 100th year anniversary in 2003, the Ford GT brought back the look of the GT40 racer that dominated Le Mans from 1966 to 1969, including the legendary 1-2-3 finish in 1966. The Ford GT featured several innovative technologies for production cars of its time, and with a production run of just 4000 vehicles, it remains a collectible retro classic. The supercharged 5.4 liter V8 engine was capable of pushing the car to over 200 mph, and with the 6-speed manual transmission and helical limited-slip differential 0-60 times as low as 3.3 seconds were recorded. This is your chance to own and drive the Ford GT for yourself!
EASY TO DRIVE WITH A REAL STEERING WHEEL CONTROLLER!
The HPI Racing RS4 Sport 3 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 - then release and push away 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!
REAL RUBBER TIRES AND COMPETITION WHEELS
The HPI Racing RS4 Sport 3 features a set of treaded rubber tires 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. Each tire is securely glued to a cool-looking competition style wheel, molded from flexible yet firm plastic. The color is molded permanently into the plastic, so it'll still look great even after any crashes or scrapes! If you want to customize your RS4 Sport 3, you can always swap out or replace the wheels and the tires mounted to them, just like a real car!

Great value for the money. It even comes with AA batteries for the transmitter. What RC company does that for you? While it is an RTR, you will have to supply your own NiMh or LiPo battery but that is to be expected 99% of the time. HPI is making a comeback with optional racing parts and better support. The HPI flux system has globs of power. It's also easy to work on. Plus, the Ford GT Heritage body looks great on the track and the shelf next to my 4Tec Ford GT body
All around good quality RC... its not really a RTR if it doesn’t come with batteries & charger, so do your homework before purchasing. Not everyone has spare batteries laying around like us RC people. Car runs fast with Lipo & gear changes. Happy with my purchase, thank you.
