Ken Block's Global RallyCross Livery with Awesome FLUX Power!
Ken Block’s eye-catching blue and black Global RallyCross livery is now available on the HPI WR8 FLUX chassis for mind-boggling action and screamingly fast top speeds of 97+ km/h (60+ mph)! The HPI FLUX power launches the HPI Ford Fiesta H.F.H.V. from a standing start to instant wild GRC action with a simple pull of the trigger!
Underneath the replica Ken Block Ford Fiesta H.F.H.V. body, the WR8 FLUX chassis is based on the Bullet monster truck, which means it's massively tough and can take a real beating on or off the road! The WR8 FLUX is powered by a 4000KV brushless motor and waterproof 3S-capable speed controller, delivering power through the same tough bevel gear differentials and fully ball bearing-supported 4WD shaft drivetrain of the Bullet monster truck. It also features rally-style suspension geometry, custom-designed shock towers, coil over dampers and extra-thick sway bars for extra control! The replica RallyCross spec tires and Speedline wheels complete the awesome HPI WR8 FLUX Ken Block Global RallyCross package for instant RallyCross fun!
Like all HPI Racing RTR (Ready-To-Run) cars, the WR8 FLUX is completely pre-built: all you have to do is open the box, install the batteries and you are ready for awesome stunt action! 4 AA alkaline HPI Plazma batteries are included for the transmitter.
Easy To Drive!
The HPI WR8 FLUX is super-easy to drive and get familiar with – all you have to do is install a battery, plug it in and switch on the radio and 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 in no time at all you’ll be ripping off jaw-dropping moves, just like Ken Block in his GRC races!
Replica Speedline Wheels and GRC Tires
For the ultimate in replica looks and fantastic performance, every HPI WR8 with Ken Block’s Global RallyCross Ford Fiesta H.F.H.V. body is fitted with replica 11-spoke Speedline GRC wheels in Ken’s signature blue color. The wheels really help the car stand out as a scale replica, and for extreme performance, the wheels are wrapped with semi-slick HPI tires made from real rubber. The rubber compound helps the car stick to asphalt or tarmac, and the treads increase traction on dusty surfaces and dirt for real GRC action!
Suspension Just Like Ken’s GRC Car!
Fans of racing cars, from real ones to little ones, know that to get the best out of your car you need to have a sturdy, tuneable suspension system. That’s why the HPI WR8 uses double wishbone suspension at all four corners, fitted with real coil over oil-filled shock absorbers and thick sway bars front and rear, just like real Global RallyCross cars! Thick main suspension arms are mated to durable uprights fitted with a pair of rubber-sealed ball bearings for performance that matches Ken’s Global RallyCross Ford Fiesta H.F.H.V.
Full Adjustability Just Like The Real Thing!
All this function is nothing if you can’t customize the car to your liking. Although we’ve set the car to be just about perfect right out of the box, you can easily adjust loads of settings, exactly like a real racing car! Ride height, shock angle and more are simple to adjust if you want to dive under the hood – HPI make it easy to be your own GRC mechanic AND driver! Drive like Ken, or work on his car: it’s easy to do both with the Ken Block WR8 FLUX!
FLUX VEKTOR 4000KV MOTOR
The FLUX VEKTOR 4000KV motor delivers massive power - plenty of juice for instant acceleration and enough power to pull out of just about any sideways drift. Option pinion gears are available to fine-tune the speed and torque delivery! The brushless design assures maximum performance with nearly no maintenance required.
FLUX VAPOR PRO SPEED CONTROLLER
With the capacity to handle 2S and 3S LiPo power, the FLUX VAPOR Pro electronic speed control is able to handle the latest, most powerful batteries you can fit in the WR8 FLUX. The VAPOR Pro features an integrated cooling fan to keep it cool in warm conditions, reverse so you can back out of jams with ease, and for maximum adjustability it's fully programmable with our optional #100573 USB Programming Kit.
Super-High Detailed Replica
There's no getting around it: this is an amazingly detailed replica of Ken Block's Global RallyCross Ford Fiesta H.F.H.V.!

Every detail of Ken’s real GRC car is replicated in 1/8th scale, from the grilles and headlights to the double-level rear wing and spoiler. Even the 11-spoke bright blue Speedline wheels are represented in miniature! If you want to drive like Ken, you’ve got to have his car, and HPI have the only authorized replica of Ken’s Global RallyCross car on the planet!
