I was told that HPI did not have a failsafe for this car and could not suggest one. They went on to tell me that if one was installed it would cause other tuning issues.
Can someone please help me out. I am a newb and would hate to see the first Nitro car I have ever owned(wanted one since I was a teen and now I am 38) fly out of control and shoot into a wall or road at 30+ MPH.
Your prayers have been answered my son
however as you add a failsafe it is highly recommened that you also upgrade to a nim batter pack such one like this.
Which then means you need a charge. So that is what HPI didn't want to tell you over the phone I guess
See if you can find a battery/wall-charger combo. Otherwise save up for a good dedicated charger. This one is pretty good, but not top of the line:
