Sport 3 1969 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 Custom
The Sport 3 goes vintage
with the 1969 Camaro Z28
When it comes to the world of muscle cars, one name consistently tops the list of 'most iconic brands': the Chevrolet Camaro! The 1969 Z28 Custom would surely top the list of most recognizable of the original Camaro, and with a huge range of factory and dealer options to customize the street-based Trans Am racer, it would dominate road racing around the world for many years!
From its very start, the Chevrolet Camaro was a performance-based street car destined for the track - and it could (and did!) win: at road circuits and drag strips from the West Coast of the USA all the way to Europe and beyond.
This 1/10th scale version is an officially licensed replica equipped with the latest HPI Racing Touring Car chassis, the track-based Sport 3! With full-time 4WD and a fully sealed shaft drivetrain, waterproof 2.4 GHz electronics and radio gear, fully independent double wishbone suspension and adjustable oil-filled shocks, it’s ready to race on any circuit - or just cruise the street in style!
The 1969 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 Custom is an icon of the road and the track, and it's ready for you to take just about anywhere for high-revving fun!
DEEP BLACK 7-SPOKE WHEELS
The Sport 3 rolls on extra-cool 7-spoke wheels to bring the overall look just a bit into the modern age. The deep black finish means the wheels are well hidden at first glance, and in fact, you may have to look very close to get the full effect - now that's what we call a multi-layered design! We love the mix of instantly recognizable vintage look of the car with the more contemporary wheels, and we're sure you will, too!
HPI SPEC-GRIP TIRES FOR MAX TRACTION
Each wheel is wrapped in our tried and tested 26mm SPEC-GRIP rubber tires complete with multi condition tread and high traction rubber "K" compound for maximum grip on just about every paved surface. You'll get great acceleration, braking and cornering performance from this semi-slick, grippy rubber tires! The tires are molded in a durable, long-wearing rubber compound that will give you a long life for hours of fun and enjoyment.
Replica 1969 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 Custom Body
Debuting in 1967, Chevrolet positioned the Camaro to be a performance vehicle from the very outset. By 1969, Chevrolet had won the American Trans-Am title (and would win again later in the year) and the track-focused Camaro Z28 street-racer proved to be a huge sales success, tripling sales from 1968, thanks to its standard 302 cubic inch V-8 with 4-barrel carburetor and Hurst close-ratio four-speed gearbox, plus a huge range of factory and dealer options such as dual 4-barrel carbs, chambered exhaust pipes and front or four-wheel disc brakes.
The functional front splitter and rear spoiler took the track pedigree to the road, boosting aerodynamics and grip at top speeds. This example features the popular Super Scoop option to draw in cool air from the base of the windshield, plus the body-color front bumper option, adding an extra dimension of cool to the profile of the Z28!
One-Piece Molded Chassis
The main chassis is formed from a single piece of reinforced plastic and features the drivetrain tunnel molded right down the middle, just like a real car. It's a step beyond any plastic tub chassis car available today.
Low Profile Layout Design
One of the ways we gave the Sport 3 the best possible handling was to make sure all the components fit as low as possible in the chassis. This gives the car an amazingly low center of gravity for optimum cornering capabilities.
2S LiPo CAPABLE
The Sport 3 features a versatile electronic speed controller that can be used with modern lithium-polymer (LiPo) or nickel-metal hydride (NiMH) batteries. Please note a LiPo adapter plug is not included, your model shop will be able to provide one.
Fits a Wide Variety of Batteries
The Sport 3 chassis can fit lithium-polymer (LiPo) and nickel-metal hydride (NiMH) packs of various sizes, including the extra-long 7-cell NiMH packs. Whatever your power requirements, it can hold it all! A thick hook-and-loop strap holds the pack securely in place, and a simple battery block screws into place to allow you to adjust the weight distribution forward or backward for extra steering or acceleration.
ALL-NEW RADIO GEAR
Like all HPI cars, the Sport 3 is easy to drive with the included steering wheel controller.
The All-New 2.4Ghz FHSS TF-50 Transmitter features:
- Drop down steering position for a natural control position
- Foam covered wheel for extra comfort and grip
- Swappable steering wheel design for left handers!
- Rubber finger and thumb handle grips
- Rubber bumpers on all corners for the highest protection.
- Magnetic area on the base for body clips or screws while you work!
- Digital on and off switch
- Audible warnings if you leave the TF-50 switched on, and if the batteries are low on power!
- Servo Reverse, EPA, Trims and Dual Rate switches.
The NEW RF-50 receiver features a waterproof silicone inner jacket for use in any weather and a built-in failsafe - Signal on the RF-50 for electric cars, and signal and battery life for the RF-50N on the Nitro!
You can fit any 1/10th scale touring car body from HPI Racing onto the Sport 3, from hot hatches to supercars, pick-up trucks to supertouring racers. All you need to do is adjust the body mounts front and rear to allow the wheels to fit underneath the body properly. A simple system using body pins hold the mounts in place, and you can fine-tune the fit to get the exact ride height you want.
