The Cup Racer combines amazing features and racing spec in true-to-scale one-tenth size, 'True Ten' design! With the HPI True Ten performance chassis, you have the opportunity to experience the joy of owning a super-realistic representation of some of the most legendary sports cars ever made.

Ultimate Scale Realism

The concept behind the Cup Racer and True Ten scale is simple, to make the best-looking, most realistic car models available. To do this, the HPI body production department teamed up with their top car designers to put together  the True Ten look, which authentically reproduces actual cars in a way that makes them look exactly like the real thing. These aren't slammed and lowered version look-alikes. Designed for ultimate performance, the True Ten idea is to replicate the real cars as they are in real life - in width, height, length and detail, with details so precise that real car fans wouldn't be able to tell the difference at first glance.

Authentic Detailing

The True Ten series features the most painstaking attention to detail that HPI designers have ever tackled. Every body line and curve from the real car is represented in the crash-resistant bodyshell. Every door line, bootlid and side skirt is represented exactly as it appears on the real car. There are even reproductions of the actual windscreen wipers, bumpers, exhaust systems and mirrors, allowing the HPI True Ten series to deliver the utmost in scale car driving.

HPI graphic designers are already legendary for producing the most accurate bodyshell graphics you can find.  When you combine that with the uniquely crystal-clear bodyshells from their body production department and the new ultra-scale accessories, you get pure scale magic.

To complete the True Ten concept, the challenge of the design team was to put the scale bodies on a chassis that is truly deserving of the ultimate scale looks. This involved a complete re-think of how scale RC cars are designed and used by today's RC hobbyists. Scale modelers want something that just works; however, experienced RC hobbyists and racers want something that can be tuned to perform. HPI nailed it.

Ready to Perform

Experienced RC racers will be able to take one look at the Cup Racer chassis and see for themselves the performance potential of this all-new chassis. A huge array of tuning adjustments is possible using the standard kit parts.

The Cup Racer features full-time 4WD, a super-stiff chassis, oil-filled shocks and inboard front shocks. Plus it has the ability to independently adjust suspension settings such as caster, camber, track width, roll center, wheelbase, anti-dive, anti-squat, droop and much more. If you like your cars to drive as well as they look, the Cup Racer is for you!

Designed for Excellence

From the very start, the True Ten Scale Cup Racer was engineered for top-level performance at a reasonable cost - while still maintaining the true-to-scale look that scale modelers desire. To accomplish this, HPI designers have taken it upon themselves to perfect concepts that long-time HPI owners may recognize, but haven't seen in their ultimate, final form.
