HPI RTR SWITCH W/Scion XB Body (Classis Silver Metallic)

The HPI Switch is a fun front wheel drive (FWD) electric car that makes getting into R/C quick and easy. The Switch is completely Ready-To-Run with a factory-assembled chassis, painted/trimmed body with decals applied, and complete electronics that include the transmitter/receiver, reversible electronic speed control, battery pack and AC charger. The Switch can be adjusted for width and wheelbase to accept a wide variety of mini-size bodies and all of the latest HPI Cup Racer bodies.

The Switch, HPI’s first FWD car, comes with a simple but very rigid bathtub chassis. All heavy items are located low on the chassis so the car corners briskly with minimum roll. FWD and a front midship motor layout give the car stable handling that’s perfectly suited for parking lot racing for drivers of all levels. You don’t need to be an advanced driver to enjoy the Switch!
