Introducing the all-new Formula Ten!
We are extremely proud to debut the fantastic new Formula Ten kit, designed to replicate the thrills and excitement of the fastest formula car racing series in the world! Since the release of the original HPI Super F1 (our first-ever car kit) we’ve been waiting for the ideal opportunity to release an all-new chassis designed around the most exciting racing cars the world has ever seen! With the full-size formula cars piloted by determined racers, managed by flamboyant team principals and driven around glamorous tracks in exotic locales, we couldn’t think of a better type of car kit to challenge our chassis and body designers!
The Formula Ten is an easy to drive, simple to build replica of the cars that millions of racing fans around the world love to watch in action, and it’s the ideal starting point for motorsports fan of any age or ability level, whether it’s your first car or your twentieth.
Fantastic Scale Looks
The Formula Ten features realistically scaled dimensions such as wheelbase, width, tyre size and more, allowing you to faithfully re-create your favorite team’s livery and do battle with rivals out on the track. There is truly nothing like the excitement of seeing a full grid of formula cars painted in replica colors, waiting for the lights to go out!
The first things you’ll notice are the realistic front and rear wings with all of the fantastic shapes and curves of the real cars. These injection-molded, high-impact plastic pieces work as bumpers and as functional aerodynamic devices. They definitely won’t come off as easily as the wings on the real cars! Optional nose pieces and wings will be available that will allow you to replicate a variety of past and future formula cars.
The tyres included with the Formula Ten kit will be molded slick tyres in a real rubber compound, at the right size and proportion. HPI will also offer a variety of optional tyre compounds and types, for tuning and high performance racing applications.
Completing the amazing scale detail is the awesome 5-piece polycarbonate body, which features a variety of scoops, winglets and barge boards that allow you to re-create your favorite racing team from the ‘winglet and chimney’ era! A scale helmet is included, allowing you to copy the helmet design of your favorite driver or make your own design.
The look and feel of the Formula Ten is enhanced by its authentic scale size – the Formula Ten is almost exactly 1/10th the size of the real thing!
Easy to Tune and Upgrade
The Formula Ten is a ‘T-bar’ style ‘pan car’, which makes it very easy to set up and highly resistant to damage, so it’s perfect for beginners, club racers and fun running. It’s rear wheel drive just like a real formula car, making it less complicated than a 4WD car.
A selection of standard parts are included in the Formula Ten kit to make it easy to set up for all drivers, regardless of skill or experience level. Precision aluminum rear hubs are included for minimal rear axle vibration, and they’re both anodized in bright HPI orange for cool looks. A strong steel axle adds strength to the rear end and makes it extra-durable. The front suspension uses a simple ball-connect and coil spring design for easy tuning – just use softer springs to add more front grip, or stiffer springs for less grip. The rear suspension is designed around the FRP T-bar and friction shock for simple and rugged operation, and the 3-gear bevel rear differential makes basic rear grip tuning an easy matter.
The durable construction and simple design doesn’t mean you won’t be able to hop up the Formula Ten and add options. If you’re an advanced driver or dedicated racer you’ll be able to fine-tune the handling of the chassis, just like a real formula team! Whether you want to add corning grip, more speed, faster acceleration or just a bit of style to the chassis, we’ll have an array of options that will turn a back-of-the-grid car into a pole-sitting beast! Graphite chassis parts add chassis stiffness, option tuning springs allow you to add grip, a tuned center shock will enhance rear grip, an aluminum motor mount will keep your motor cool, a ball differential will enhance rear grip, and many more option parts will be available to totally customize and tune your own formula racing car.
Build It Yourself
The Formula Ten will be available in kit form with a clear body. The simplicity of the design makes it an easy way to get into the RC hobby and learn about assembly, mechanics, electronics and chassis tuning. A complete assembly manual is included. Add your own radio transmitter, steering servo, receiver, electronic speed controller (ESC), standard-size 540 motor, 4-cell 4.8v stick-pack battery with charger, and finally your choice of paint color. Standard-size electronic components will fit easily in the chassis, so no expensive micro electronics are needed.
