It's got all-wheel drive, an all-electric drive train, and it's at 1/10th scale. It's the HPI E10 R/C kit.
There's a lot of empty space beneath the E10's body shell.
The shell is held in place with four posts and pins.
The E10 chassis comes preassembled, but nearly every component is user-serviceable and upgradeable.
The included 1,500mAH battery is good for 30-45 minutes of use.
The radio box houses many of the sensitive electronics and the swappable frequency crystal.
The motor sends power to the wheels. It can be moved to the front of the vehicle for a "drift" configuration or the rear, readjusting the weight for a "touring" layout.
A central driveshaft and gearbox sends power to the front and rear axles.
At each end, the E10 features an open differential and a fully independent suspension.
The three-channel remote allows control of throttle and steering.
It takes 8 AA batteries to power the remote. These are not included.
Users can adjust steering trim, throttle trim, and change the remote's operating frequency with the purchase of additional radio crystals.
The E10 kit carries an MSRP of $299, but it could easily be found for much cheaper online.
