Nitro In My Veins! HPI Trophy Insight - Hobby Letter #9/22

20.6.2022

Hello from EuroRC! Heikki here how are you folks? It is time to let the gravel fly high and let the bittersweet aroma of nitro fuel waft over the tracks of glory. Summer is here and the heat is on!

You may have noticed that good old Off-road Racing Buggies are getting popular again! We have seen this at the track but also many RC enthusiast whose normally hobby something totally different are challenging their skills with a real off-road racing machine.

Buggy type of racer is hands down best choice when it comes to racing on loose and bumpy surface. It has always been. This in mind, I have good news for you! We snatched a batch of fabulous HPI Trophy 1:8 Buggies and Truggies in our shop and with a special low low price!

If you've ever wanted to try what it is to race with a bigger eight-scale off-road racer now is your time to shine - especially if you want it with a real combustion engine! Read on!

HPI Racing Trophy 1:8 Truggy and Buggy Special Offer Here!

Up in Smoke! HPI Trophy Truggy 4.6 is aggressive truck with a real combustion engine.

Smokestack Lightning

So what special in HPI Trophys? I am not sure if there has to be anything special or groundbreaking in it to be honest. They have all the basic things done right and it they have proven their capabilities in the competitions for many years already. Keep it simple, stupid that's what they say and level of Bang for The Buck is high with these ones!

HPI Trophy Truggy is a real, full sized 1:8 truggy and it is ready for rough bashing or true racing. Nitro engine version has true power in it as Big Block 4.6 Nitro Star engine kicks almost three horsepowers out of its shaft. Talk about power-weight ratio when HPI Trophy is only few kilograms!

Competition proven chassis is well balanced thanks to low center of gravity and racing suspension.

Buggy version is tad shorter but also more agile when it comes to racing on the track. Full competition ready HPI Trophy Buggy comes with spicy 3.5 Nitro Star engine.

If nitro is not your juice, both of these excellent racing trucks are also available with more-than-fast 1975kv Brushless 4S Flux electronics.

There has been rumors that these cars may be old stock but this is not true. Included electronics are brand new and made by one of the most popular RC electronic manufacturer.

Electronic version of HPI Trophies come with up-to-date power system. And it's fast!

Deal of the Lifetime

For many True Racer nitro is the only way to go. If you've ever wanted to try out how it is to race with combustion engine this is - once again - your Deal of the Lifetime!

Now take a deep breath and think it again. You can get a Factory New and Ready-To-Run Competition level 1:8-scale offroad racer with price tag of under 400€!

You know that kits like these are usually almost double in price and come without any electronics or engine.

Nitro models come full built and Ready-To-Run, just add fuel, pull the starter and follow the instructions for correct break in. Electronic versions need only a fully charged batteries and off you go!

Talented and good fellow Jani V. is our photographer. Here's his Lunch Box annoying the bigger trucks!

All right my friends, this for now! It really makes me happy to see that more and more people are expanding their Hobby Bubble with open minds.

For me the next new horizon to conquer are the Touring Cars. I have tested them and really liked it but never really raced with them. I think that I should fix this issue this summer. What is your next bubble to pop? This great hobby has so much to give, doesn't it!

Happy summer and thanks for reading!
