The massively popular HPI Bullet ST 3.0 has been updated with an all-new look, and this super tough off-road fun machine is ready for action at your command!
The Bullet ST 3.0 can blast through any type of terrain thanks to the immense power of its HPI Nitro Star G3.0 engine and a durable 4WD drivetrain. Getting to awesome speeds and catching massive air has never been more fun! The durable, robust design of the Bullet means it can take hard landings and rough action so you can enjoy big air, hard-hitting action whenever and wherever you want!
The Bullet 3.0 trucks feature a protected receiver compartment for the truck's battery pack and receiver, plus waterproof steering and throttle servos that allow you to keep running your Bullet in extreme conditions that would kill just about any other vehicle! Want to tackle that muddy bog? How about that stream crossing? A bit of rain about to fall? It's all good for the Bullet trucks!p>
Please note: This HPI vehicle is designed to provide water protection so it can be driven in wet conditions (e.g. rain, snow, puddles). Not for submersion. Nitro engines are splash protected and require extra care when running in wet conditions. See manual for details.
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!
The Bullet trucks use a 3mm aluminium plate-style chassis as the backbone, providing an extremely tough foundation for the suspension and drivetrain. The aluminium used in the chassis is the very strong 7075-T6 alloy, which is the same aluminium available in top-spec radio-controlled vehicles, making it the ideal material for something like the Bullet! For extra stiffness, the sides of the chassis are upturned and the aluminium radio plate also acts as an extra stiffening support.
The drivetrain used in all Bullet trucks is a full-time four-wheel drive shaft-type drivetrain, just like the one used in 1/8th scale buggies like the World Champion D8 buggy. A shaft drivetrain is the best option for a kit that's expected to encounter every possible driving condition and track surface, so whether you're blasting through mud, water, dirt, grass, snow or gravel, this is exactly what you what you want!
A strong plastic 54-tooth spur gear takes the power from the engine and transmits it front and rear through an adjustable dual pad slipper clutch. A dual pad slipper provides more protection to the drivetrain than a standard single pad design, and we've included it as standard to make sure you get the best out of the Bullet.
The centre dogbones drive the front and rear bevel differentials, which use 4 internal gears for increased durability and lifetime over standard 2-gear diffs. The diff outdrives turn tough steel outdrives and axles, and 14mm hex adapters spin the cool styled wheels wrapped with unique all-terrain rubber tyres.
A single drilled steel disc brake is used for extreme stopping power. Brake pads shod with material used in full-size trucks clamp down when the brakes are applied, bringing this beast to a quick yet controllable stop! All the brake linkage is fully adjustable, but you can leave it as set from the factory or it can be adjusted for prime operation on any surface.
For extra efficiency, all the components of the drivetrain, from the spur gear to the wheel axles, spin on rubber-sealed ball bearings. With these bearings you get long runtimes and long engine life while the rubber seals keep out dust and grime!
