HPI Racing Blitz lightweight options

HPI Racing have released a number of new items for their Short course truck, the Blitz. This heatsink motor plate is precision machined from high strength 4mm 7075S aircraft grade aluminium for extreme durability and anodized brown to match other Blitz aluminum option parts. The plate uses heat sink fins to draw heat away from the motor to keep it running cool, for longer run time and extended motor life. A new lightweight mud flap set helps you save critical weight and still keep the authentic short course look. There is also new aluminium step screws that are approximately 70% lighter than the stock steel screws. They are sold in sets of 10 and available in brown, orange and silver. Other lightweight parts include new aluminium thin lock nuts, a replacement parts for Z663 steel M3 lock nuts. Again sold in packs of 10 and available in orange and silver. Finally there are two new aluminium ball studs, 4.8×12mm and 4.8×15mm, which are sold in packs of 10 and offer 70% weight savings over the stock steel part. Most of these parts are also suitable for the E-Firestorm truck.
