Default HPI E10 Drift Monster Energy edition

This is the new HPI E10 Drift Monster Energy edition. That thing looks real sharp for sure. What do you guys think of it?



Some says it's definitely a badass. What do you think of this one?

HPI Racing is proud to announce the new, officially licensed, Monster Energy/Falken Tire and Falken Tire Ford Mustang GT RTRs. The Monster Energy version is a replica of pro drifting champion Vaughn Gittin Jr's ride and then there is the Falken Tire car of Justin Pawlak. Both designs are perfect 1:10 versions with Falken's trademark livery perfectly replicated onto the E10 Drift.

Would you buy this car?

The E10 is an Begginer/enrty level drifter and its very limited from the get go! So No for me!

What Josh said "Begginers car"
thats doesnt say its total garbage car
it does come with 2.4 radio
they are coming out with handful of hop ups
-ballbearings -1way front dif -lock rear dif

had a bud that had a e10 and it seems to drift all right
but the bushings burntout and took out his dif, so get bearings right away
looks like hpi are going to be pushing this car

Sorry I wasnt bashing on the E10, I have Team Mates that have them And I find my self Drifting one often cuz im kinda the Team Gear Head that loves to tweek! and when my Team mates have problems wuth their E10's I normally take the controll and inspect the problems! My Team Mate Ricky had one and has a but load of hop ups on it, with a 3300kv brushless set up! and lets just say I can Drift that B*%$H like no one bizz! its jost not me! Im into the whole CS stuff and its kinda slow on the switch backs and tends to lose its angle at low speeds! But at High speed enrties and Sweepers I can Drift the Dog S%*T out of it!

But dont let my Rants steer you away from your desitions!

Here is my current drifter!

Talking You don't need to have a PRO RC car to compete/won a DRIFT BATTLE.

Actually in drifting you don't need a nice RC (PRO 4 or Sprint2 or whatever) if you dont have the "SKILLS" what's the use of your beautiful RC performance if you don't have a skill. i think 35 percent on the car performace and the rest is your DRIFTING SKILL.. . peace man. that's on my mind.


DRIFTING IS NOT ONLY BASED IN YOUR CAR PERFORMANCE, YOU NEED TO HAVE THE "SKILLS".

Drifting is the freestyle ski-jumping of motorsports. Kinda silly and I can't believe people still watch it.

Yup, drifting is all about skills and some drift tires. I only drift my "for show" ones indoor.
