The VORTEX NITRO WARHEAD is specifically designed by Hobby Warehouse and is not available from any other HSP dealer . With its striking blue cover that is highlighted by metallic ghost flames, matching blue wing and color coded blue aluminium parts that perfectly compliment the blue accent on the centers of the bright chrome wheels, this buggy performs as good as it looks.
The HSP Nitro Warhead offers outstanding value for money compared to other brands of nitro vehicles on the market and should be at the top of your list when considering this type of off road RC vehicle.
We also hit the HSP upgrade parts list and added an upgraded shock front tower that is manufactured from a much thicker and stronger grade of aluminium than previous models. The heavy duty construction of this component helps by keeping the shock absorbers aligned to to the correct geometry to provide maximum reaction over harsh terrain.
All 4 shock absorbers on the standard HSP models are adjustable and allow the operator to dial in the suspension to suit the type of terrain they want to operate on. HSP have a unique "c shaped clip" that fits around the shock body just above the spring giving 2 different suspension adjustment settings. Fit this "c clip" to the shock and you can apply more pre-load to the spring for a firmer rate when running on a smooth surface to reduce body roll or take the clip out for a softer rate when running on rugged off road environments where you need all the suspension travel you can get. Rear wheel camber is adjustable along with front wheel camber and toe in - toe out also being fully adjustable via a simple turnbuckle system on the steering arms. Your sure to find the set-up that is right for just about any operating surface.
Crack the throttle and hear the powerful VX18 .18cc Nitro Engine scream its way across your favorite patch of ground. The VX18 is mated to a 13.8g lightweight aluminium flywheel allows for quick engine response. The engine is also equipped high and low mixture settings, making tuning very straight forward and simple to suit the type of conditions you want to operate in. This engine is fitted with a pull start system to make starting very easy. The VX18 is also fitted with a heavy duty air-filter and quality HSP glow plug. The manifold is coupled to a composite material exhaust pipe that is light weight and provides the perfect amount of pressurization to the fuel tank to provide a trouble free supply of Nitro Fuel to the adjustable carburetor.
The VX18 engine is coupled to a reliable 2 speed gear box that offers exhilarating acceleration from a standing start along with a taller second gear to maximise top end speed. The gearbox is mid-mounted and transfers its power to the front and rear differentials by solid steel drive shafts providing a true all wheel drive system to power your way around just about any terrain.
Steering duties are commanded by a HSP 6001 6kg "High Torque" steering servo. The servo is also protected from heavy shock loads that can be amplified through the steering components while operating in harsh terrain by a unique "Servo Saver" system. A special spring loaded joint is incorporated into the steering system which helps dampen severe jarring to the servo and helps extend its longevity. The throttle and braking commands are also performed by the same model servo to make sure that you can stop exactly where you want and power away like a bullet every time.

The "Vortex Nitro Warhead" is supplied with a quality HSP 2.4GHz digital radio transmitter which means you can run other vehicles utilizing the same system without interference at the same time.
