HPI Racing introduce a new option part for the R10 200mm nitro on-road car in the form of an optional belt pulley. The part is designed to give another tuning option for the drivetrain as it will replace the standard 25T pulley with a slightly larger one, slowing down the front wheels in relation to the rear one in order to fine-tune the car. CNC-machined from high-quality aluminium the pulley comes laser-etched for easy identification.

The car that TQ’d the recent World Championships, the HB R10 is the latest kit from the minds at HB-HPI to enter the exciting and fast world of 1/10th scale on-road touring car racing. Top-level nitro touring cars are a completely different type of racing class compared to electric touring cars, you can’t just add an engine to any touring car design and be off to the races. Properly designing and testing a car takes months, even years plus the standard of materials and design has to be at the highest level. At over 60mph, even on smaller tracks, every component has to serve a purpose and be designed to perform. That’s why only the best materials went into the R10: titanium, aircraft aluminum, carbon graphite, top-grade composites and more. The R10 is built from the ground up to perform and to win.

This HPI/HB Hauler Bag is roomy enough for a 1/8 scale buggy or touring/drift car and all required accessories, it’s sturdy enough to withstand the rigors of international travel. Using high-impact, corrugated black plastic sheets to form the interior of the HPI/HB Hauler Bag means that it’s light and maneuverable, so it’s easy to get where you need to be. The bag features inline skate-type wheels and an extending carry handle so it’s easy to transport through crowded airports or even just across the parking lot and into your favorite RC track. Tough carry handles at each end and a long shoulder strap give you more carrying options. The zippered top shelf has loop-style tool holders or can easily fit a tool organizer. The selection of side pockets includes a huge side pocket that can hold an extra-large setup board, an end pocket for instruction manuals or magazines, and two pockets on the opposite end that can hold cleaning spray cans and diff or shock oils. The main body of the HPI/HB Hauler Bag features a full-side zippered opening that rolls up and is secured with hook-and-loop fasteners to stay out of the way of the 5 corrugated plastic drawers.
