HPI Blitz ESE
HPI Blitz ESE Build-it-yourself Kit
The Blitz ESE takes short-course rc to the next level with an all out, no compromise chassis that’s outfitted with a ton of premium upgrades, high grade mataerials and tined performance parts. This HPI Racing Blitz ESE is a build-it-yourself kit allowing you to customize your truck and top it off with your choice of electronics, high preformance wheels, tires, batteries, accessories.
BLITZ ESE FEATURES AND BENEFITS:
> High performance parts are color coded white, cool gray, and warm grey. Not only does this enhance the style of the truck, it lets you know at a glance which part is the high response performance part.
> Stiffer composite main chassis that quickens the overall response of the truck.
> Firm front arms give more precise steering feel while the rear arms help free up the truck in corners.
> Firm shock towers provide less flex, allowing the shocks to do more of the work. Much more responsive to oil and spring changes.
> Firmer skid plates: jump take-offs and landings are more aggressive. Less compliance means sharper response.
> Firmer bumpers offer more body protection.
> Composite front bulkhead: keeps the front end more rigid, allowing for a more precise and responsive front suspension.
> Aluminum front arm mount: much more precise front suspension action. Set screws keep the aluminum from wearing and also take full advantage of the firm front arms.
> Aluminum shock bodies provide more precise action for improved chassis response.
> Aluminum shock top caps provide more precision and response. They also have enhanced bleeding function when building shocks.
> Aluminum cartridge cap allows a delrin washer to be added between o-rings to reduce shaft deflection and friction.
> Pre-load lock collars allows locking of collars so preload adjustments don’t change.
> Firm suspension mounts: more precise alignment of suspension helps make adjustment more noticeable. Parts develop less play over time and take full advantage of the firm rear arms.
> Ball differential: ceramic diff balls mated to a ball race and a steel gear ensuring you get great ball diff action without compromising the strength of the all-metal drivetrain. High quality outdrives ensure long part life. The diff is easily adjusted with a 2.5mm driver so you can tune the feel to your driving style. The diff also shaves 20g of rotating weight from the gearbox.
> Universal drive shafts free up the drivetrain and allow more extreme suspension settings.
> Trailing vs. Inline: both types of steering blocks are included to help you tailor your truck to your driving style and performance requirements.
> Heat sink motor mount offers a more rigid mounting of the drivetrain to the motor and has improved cooling potential so you can run those hotter winds even faster.
> Lightweight slipper/ spur carriers decrease rotating weight in the gearbox and simplify installation.
> Titanium top shaft: the input shaft to the gearbox is now titanium to further reduce rotating weight and make the most of the powerplant.
> Aluminum locknuts are used throughout the chassis to lighten the chassis, especially in un-sprung assemblies making the chassis more responsive.
> 7075 aluminum ball studs further increase responsiveness of the entire suspension and steering systems and remove weight.
> Titanium turnbuckles greatly decrease the weight of the suspension and add style to your linkages.
> CNC serrated aluminum, large diameter wheel nuts used at each corner allow the fastest maintenance and offers the most wheel holding torque to prevent wheels from loosening.
> High impact firm ball cups: more suspension precision and more driver feedback.
> High quality class 10.9 and class 12.9 hardware used throughout for ease of maintenance and durability.
