Brand new and ready for some serious off-road action, the totally fresh Brama 10B is the first electric 4WD buggy from HPI! It’s made to be tough, ready for anything and easy to repair. It also looks great and can go just about anywhere! Based on the always-tough E10 chassis, the Brama 10B has full-time 4WD for maximum traction, longer arms and bigger shocks for top handling, plus a sweet racing buggy bodyshell and massive rear wing for cool custom looks and race-style handling! With a sealed shaft drivetrain and pinion/spur combo, you won’t have to deal with rocks or anything else getting stuck and slowing you down, ever! You can keep the hammer down and power out of any trouble you might get yourself into. The spiked tyres and coil-over shocks front and rear will just keep going and going, biting and clawing through dirt, grass or mud! Completely pre-built and painted, the Brama 10B is already fitted with reliable HPI radio gear, servo, electronic speed control and a powerful motor to get you up to speed in a hurry. Just charge up the stick pack battery, pop some AA's in the transmitter and you'll be getting airborne and dirty in no time! The Brama 10B is the perfect all-around, fun 'bash' car that everyone wishes they could have started out the RC hobby with. It's tough, looks great, fun to drive, can go anywhere, and is fully upgradeable to make it faster and even tougher. If you're looking for the ultimate fun off-roader, the Brama 10B is it!
A sleek, enclosed tub chassis keeps dirt and debris away from the electronics and drivetrain, plus the close-fitting bodyshell seals everything up nicely. The tall sides of the chassis do double duty by increasing chassis stiffness and keeping dirt out, making your off-road experience as clean as possible.
Tough and durable, shaft drive is the perfect choice for fun and wild off-road action. It's sealed against debris like rocks and pebbles and can take the power of high-strength motors, so it's ideal for RC drivers of any skill level. It's strong, reliable and great for running off-road!
The full range of available RC batteries can be used in the Brama 10B, including Ni-MH or the newer Li-Po packs. You can use stick or 'shotgun' packs or side-by-side Ni-MH packs or the boxy Li-Po battery packs (the type with curved sides), allowing you to choose the power source that fits your needs and budget the best!
The centerline transmission (shaft and differentials) is ball raced for accurate gear mesh, great run times and low stress on the motor.
Maintenance-free bevel gear diffs - so you can continue having fun without dealing with diff disassembly or messy oils and greases.
Changing the gearing of the motor is extremely easy, thanks to preset mounting positions based on the pinion gear attached to the motor. No more worries about setting gear mesh or replacing stripped-out spur gears!
Everything about the drivetrain is overbuilt for strength and longevity, even the one-piece steel dogbones, which fit precisely into the axles and outdrives for extra durability and a strong drivetrain.
Strong and thick diff outdrives help make sure that you won't have any issues with the drivetrain transmitting power to the dogbones and wheels. Oversize means extra tough for RC drivers of any skill level, plus you'll have the peace of mind that allows you to blast through any type of terrain!
These are standard-size hex hubs that are compatible with Hot Bodies D4 racing wheels, allowing you to change tires to suit the driving surface you're attacking. Change the stock Digger tyres to mini-pin or big blocky treads for running on hard-pack dirt or loose gravel!
Most RTR off-road RC cars come with extremely basic 'shocks' that are simply springs and are not damnped in any way with oil...but the Brama 10B uses racing-derived oil-filled dampers to keep the power on the ground and you fully in control! Great performance and durability in one shot!
The sturdy, reinforced design of the suspension arms and the extra-tough plastic material means you can play all day without breaking a thing. You'll experience more time playing and less time rebuilding, making for a fun and enjoyable time with your Brama.
To adjust ride height and damping, HPI designers provided the Brama 10B with 3 front and 2 rear shock positions, giving you a low-slung racing option or a powerful bashing machine with extra ground clearance.
To keep the Brama 10B pointing where you want it to go, it uses extra-strong steering knuckles made from the famously tough HPI nylon compound. It resists breaking even under the most ridiculous crashes and flips, letting you keep going and going!
HPI designers paid attention to the small details of the Brama 10B, including making sure that all the suspension components can take the abuse of off-road running! With experience from kits like the legendary Savage, Hellfire and racing kits like the D4 and D8, you can be sure of yourself with years of racing experience behind you!
Nothing says off-road like studded tires, and the hard compound Digger tires fitted to the Brama 10B are ideal for any type of off-road surface: grass, loose dirt, gravel, hard-pack and more!
When the inevitable happens and you touch an obstacle, the wide front bumper protects the suspension and drivetrain from damage and lets you carry on driving.
The Brama 10 shares many drivetrain parts with the E10 on-road car, so it can fit many of the E10's option parts, including the #88017 aluminium centre drive shaft and #88020-#88035 pinion gears, and many more to come! See the Options Parts list for all the ways you can tune the Brama 10B!
Looking great and fitting precisely over the chassis, the Brama 10B bodyshell looks like a pure racing machine! Sleek looks combine with custom assets/images, vents and high-downforce areas to make the Brama 10B look amazing!
The high-downforce wing supplied with the kit is made from extra-resilient high-impact nylon, so can absorb crash damage and keep coming back for more. It also is covered with custom assets/images to match the bodyshell so it looks fantastic!
HPI designers didn't stop at creating at just the bodyshell and wing when making the Brama 10B look amazing - the sleek 7-spoke wheels are a style statement unto themselves! You'll get head-turning good looks as well as reliable performance every time you're on the dirt!
The Brama 10B is supplied fully Ready-To-Run (RTR), meaning it's factory-assembled right out of the box, with all electronics installed, fully painted, tires glued to the wheels and even with all the bright and flashy decals applied. Simply open the box, install 8 AA batteries in the transmitter, charge up the 2000mAh car battery and you're off! A battery and wall charger are included to complete the RTR package - with 2000mAh of juice you'll be on the track for a long time!
The powerful EN-1 electronic speed controller (ESC) is factory-installed and can handle the Saturn motor easily, plus when you're ready to get a faster motor you don't need to upgrade anything, just plug it in and the EN-1 can handle the power! The EN-1 is ideal for handling brushed motors as powerful as 21 turns.
