This is the HPI Racing Vorza Flux 1/8 scale 4WD Buggy with 2.4GHZ radio, flux system and painted body. With the World Championship-winning HB D8 buggy as its foundation, the Vorza takes the race-winning design of the D8 and mixes it up with HPI Flux HP tech from the Savage Flux HP to give you awe-inspiring speed! This is a ready to run (RTR) buggy that you can take to BMX jumps for hair-raising big-air thrills, and then you can take it straight to any buggy track for top-level racing action - it will turn heads and amaze your friends! The Vorza has everything that backyard bashers and racers want!
The Vorza Flux HP is our FASTEST buggy, able to reach speeds up to 73 mph*! Can you imagine an electric buggy going that fast? The Flux Blur speedo takes 2 batteries, allowing you to fit in up to 6S of LiPo power for utterly insane top speeds and mind-boggling take-off power!
World Championship Suspension Design
With many parts taken directly from the World Champion HB D8 racing buggy, the Vorza is ready to hit the track any time, any place! Equal-length 16mm HB Big Bore shocks smooth out the ride and provide plenty of adjustment, while the D8's solid suspension arms, knuckles and uprights take the pounding of jumps, dips and landings. Sturdy aluminum suspension mounts securely hold the suspension arms to the chassis with a steel screw and washer.
Top-Level Race Buggy Adjustability
At both ends of the car, the Vorza has everything you'd expect from an all-out competition kit, including HB's Inverse Steering Block Design, thick anodized aluminum steering link, optional hinge pin holes for the rear uprights, adjustable roll center, thick turnbuckle links, aligned king pin and universal joint pivots, sway bar, steel turnbuckles and HB's own counter-rotating shock mount screws.
Rock-Solid Reliable Drivetrain
Continuing the rugged reliability of HB nitro buggies and truggies, the Vorza uses the D8 spiral-cut 'worm gear' diffs to get the power from the driveshafts to the wheels. A spiral cut is more reliable and much stronger than standard straight-cut gears, giving you extra confidence and fewer maintenance headaches. You can adjust the diff action with thicker or thinner oils because all three diffs are sealed against leakage, giving you a fantastic boost of tuning ability.
2.4GHz RADIO SYSTEM
All of the latest HPI kits are now fitted with a comfortable and feature-packed HPI 2.4GHz radio system for supreme control and confidence! The radio features a pistol-grip design with drop-down steering wheel, 3 channel functionality, easy carry handle, fold-down aerial, end point adjustments, servo reversing and steering dual rate. It's also extremely lightweight due to it requiring only four AA batteries.
You won't have to worry about radio crystals or what channel other RC racers are using with our 2.4GHz technology - the radio does all that work for you! The radio prevents frequency conflicts automatically and changes channels if there is any interference. Finally, if you ever lose radio signal or battery power, an electronic failsafe will bring it to a safe and controlled stop. You'll have professional-level control in one easy RTR package!
4 AA Batteries - HPI recommend #101938 Rechargeable AA Batteries!

Battery Charger - #101972 or #101971 HPI Reactor 500 Charger recommended!
Great buggy! Very quick on 6s without gearing up but I will be sometime soon just to see how much crazier this thing is on the road. Any bashers out there do yourself a favour and get 2 pairs of proline 3.8 badlands you won't be dissapointed raises the car up a fair bit and gives it tons more traction and just looks bad ass! :) you should probably stay at the stock gearing with those bad boys tho to save your diffs, etc.
Out of the box this thing is killer. If you go with 6S make sure you go easy on the throttle till you get used it it. Otherwise you break parts like I did.
I just bought from http://www.rctophobby.com for 2 days and find the price here is lower
Very good service and prompt delivery.
The Vorza exceeded my expectations. Working with RCPLANET as always was a great experience.
