HPI Apache C1 - RTR 4WD Brushless Desert Buggy Excitement!
The HPI APACHE C1 4WD FLUX BRUSHLESS BUGGY is the ultimate in 1/8th scale desert and all-terrain fun! With HB RACE DNA suspension system from the World Championship Winning HB D8 buggy and FLUX Brushless power to all 4 wheels, it's ready for competition straight out of the box.

Rounding off the package are scale replica Yokohama Geolandar off-road tyres and a detailed, pre-painted realistic desert buggy cage-style body, complete with spare tyre and driver and co-driver figures!
The Apache C1 is modelled on the full-size 'Class 1' desert racing buggies that run in the actual Baja 1000 long-distance races. This scale version is based on the HB D8 buggy and the HPI Vorza, which are both legends in their own right: the D8 is a World Champion and the Vorza is a Guinness World Record holder! The unique monocoque suspension arms, race-winning suspension with Big Bore shocks and super-durable shaft 4WD drivetrain all combine to make a durable and versatile chassis that can handle whatever you and the track can throw at it!
The Q-Base ESC and Alphastar 2350Kv brushless motor can handle twin 2S LiPo battery packs to let the Apache C1 really stretch its legs on any on-road or off-road surface, thanks to the scale all-terrain tyres. With dual batteries fitted into the adjustable battery box, you can pack up to 14.8 volts of power into the car to experience wild acceleration, huge rooster tails of dirt and awesome top speeds!
When you're ready to get a step up on the competition, the Apache C1 is ready to be fitted with the full range of Hara Edition D8 option parts from Team HB to give you even more tuning options!
