While other short course trucks, such as the Traxxas Slash, had waterproof electronics and a 2.4Ghz radio first – HPI Racing has finally updated their VERY popular short course truck, the HPI Blitz with the same and then some!

A Plazma 7.2v stick pack, a set of Plazma AA batteries, and charger make running quicker and easier than ever.

The new SF-10W waterproof steering servo and SC-15WP waterproof electronic speed controller complete the package.
2.4GHz RADIO SYSTEM
The new and improved Blitz now features a high quality HPI 2.4GHz radio system. This provides you with the confidence and comfort of crystal free driving, making frequency conflicts a thing of the past. A built-in failsafe is also standard, bringing the truck to a safe and controlled stop if it somehow loses radio signal or battery power.
Bonus Accessories Included
To get your brand new HPI Blitz shredding up the local track, driveway or backyard as soon as possible; all of the necessary running items are included in the box! A rechargeable 7.2V Plazma battery pack, AC wall charger, and even a set of Plazma AA batteries for your transmitter are all there. Just charge the battery and you’re ready to go!
Eye Catching Looks
The Blitz is topped off with an all-new Skorpion body that was designed to not only look great with a wide and aggressive stance, but to also perform as well as it looks. The Skorpion body has received treatments in various areas to aid in the overall handling and feeling of the truck, both while driving it, and also while airborne. The body comes in two slick new color offerings, pre-cut and ready to go.
The Blitz carries on the legendary durability that the HPI lineup is known for, and takes many of its nearly indestructible cues from the E-Firestorm line. Features that are options for many other trucks out there, these are standard equipment here. Such as the tough, all metal gear bulletproof transmission, aluminum hex hubs, Baja inspired skid-plates, high performance threaded shocks, high-impact nylon absorbing short course bumpers, just to name a few.
