The latest Ken Block Ford Fiesta ST RX43, with its awesome iridescent "stars & stripes" design, is now available for the first time on the HPI Racing WR8 chassis! With the stunning performance of the brushless-powered WR8 FLUX and the fabulous realism of the engine-powered WR8 NITRO, Ken Block fans have their choice of amazing scale replicas of Ken Block's feature car from the Dubai Gymkhana 8 video, and the Terrakhana video, filmed in the desert of southern Utah! 

This FLUX-powered WR8 all-terrain rally-style car can easily hit speeds over 60 mph (100km/h) with the pull of a trigger, so get ready to have a blast and bust out some tricks as you drive the Ken Block Ford Fiesta ST RX43 from HPI Racing!

Custom Hoonigan Paint Featuring Color-Shifting Stars and Stripes!
The first thing to grab your attention with these cars are the amazing iridescent stars and stripes that cover the officially licensed Ford Fiesta ST RX43 body! As you watch, the color actually changes before your eyes! From purple, to gold, then finally to green - and back again! Of course, the car is covered in the official Hoonigan Racing Division logos, plus sponsor logos such as Toyo, Pennzoil, KB43 and more, AND replica fifteen52 wheels fitted with grippy semi-slick rubber tires for the complete Gymkhana look! 

The WR8 car is the perfect size for action anywhere, whether you're at a parking lot, BMX track or favorite RC bashing spot, and its all-metal drivetrain can handle everything from speed runs to jumps and more! The 4WD system is just like Ken's full-size Ford Fiesta ST RX43, and provides excellent traction on any off-road or on-road surface, from tarmac to gravel and dirt. And because the chassis is based on the Bullet monster truck off-road chassis, you get legendary HPI toughness so you spend more time driving and less time wrenching!

The Brushless WR8 FLUX: 60+ MPH Hoonigan Power!

The WR8 FLUX packs in a ridiculously powerful FLUX brushless powerplant to give you crazy acceleration combined with totally mental top speeds! Simply plug in a lithium-polymer (LiPo) HPI Plazma battery and you're ready for insane amounts of power! Water-resistant electronics mean you can get out and drive no matter what the weather is like, and with extra optional batteries you just have to swap in freshly-charged packs for all day fun!

Hi, What is the top Speed on 2s & run time from a 5000mah 7.4v battery?
Asked by Oliver Moore on 14th July 2019

Top speed on 3S is around 60mph, so top speed on 2S we'd expect to be around 40mph with high speed gearing.

Answered by: Ben @ Wheelspin Models

Interested in ordering one of these cars. What is the maximum discharge rate that they can handle?
Asked by Greg on 25th June 2021

There's no "max discharge rate" that any model can handle - it'll pull as much as it needs.  I'd stick to a minimum of say 30C though.
