The HPI E10 Michele Abbate Grrracing Touring Car is a neon yellow and black replica of the full size race car campaigned by US Touring Car racer, GrrRacing’s US 3 time SCCA Road Racing Champion, Michele Abbate. Coming straight out of Vegas and competing in multiple road racing championship series, this car celebrates the success of the team and is a perfect match for the HPI E10 platform.

The RTR E10 includes a high-performance electric motor, plus a waterproof electronic speed controller that features proportional throttle, powerful brakes and convenient reverse functions, allowing it to drive and maneuver just like real cars. An intuitive steering wheel style transmitter with real steering wheel and trigger style throttle/brake controls takes care of the controller duties.

EASY TO DRIVE WITH A REAL STEERING WHEEL CONTROLLER!
The HPI Racing E10 touring car is super-easy to drive and get familiar with – all you have to do is plug in the included battery and switch on the radio, then the car. It’s that easy! To drive the car, simply pick up the controller with your left hand, put your left index finger into the trigger area, and then put your right hand on the steering wheel – it’s as natural as driving a real car! Turn the wheel to go left and right, and gently pull on the trigger with your left index finger to go forwards. To stop the car, gently push away from you with your left index finger – hold it there to go into reverse. It takes seconds to get used to this easy operation, and pretty soon you’ll be racing with your friends!
REAL RUBBER TIRES AND COMPETITION WHEELS
The HPI Racing E10 features a set of treaded rubber tires for maximum grip on just about every paved surface. You’ll get great acceleration, braking and cornering performance from these semi-slick, grippy rubber tires! The tires are molded in a durable, long-wearing rubber compound that will give you a long life for hours of fun and enjoyment. Each tire is securely glued to a cool-looking competition style wheel, molded from flexible yet firm plastic. The wheels are each coated in a shiny metallic finish to look great on the shelf or on the track! If you want to customize your E10, you can always swap out or replace the wheels and the tires mounted to them, just like a real car!
DISC BRAKES AND CALIPERS!
Along with a great-looking racer body and competition wheels, a complete set of replica disc brakes and calipers complete the amazing look of this HPI Racing E10 touring car. The calipers are mounted to the hubs and uprights, just like on a real car, and the discs turn with the wheels for total realism! (Note: these are not functional brakes! The electric motor does the actual braking.)
REAL WORKING SUSPENSION!
The HPI Racing E10 touring car is fitted with extra-long double wishbone suspension at all four corners for great control in the corners. Spring-loaded shock absorbers absorb the bumps and dips in the road and the thick upper and lower suspension arms are fitted to durable uprights fitted with ball bearings for maximum runtime and drivetrain longevity.
The HPI Racing E10 is fitted with a strong and reliable steering system and a tough and durable water-resistant servo, taking the steering commands from the handheld controller and turning the wheels left and right through a double bellcrank, giving you complete control! The steering parts are durable yet flexible, allowing them to bounce back after minor crashes so you can keep driving for hours!
4WD SHAFT DRIVETRAIN
With a 4WD shaft drivetrain, the HPI Racing E10 can be driven on just about any paved surface. Thanks to the spur gear and motor pinion cover, debris such as pebbles and stones can’t get caught in the gears to slow you down! A central driveshaft takes the power down the middle of the car, and enclosed gear diffs front and rear transmit the power from the motor to each tire through ball bearing-supported driveshafts at each corner of the car.
