HSP XSTR Electric Radio Controlled Buggy – Pro Brushless Version

If you are looking for an award winning electric RC car then take a good look at the HSP XSTR Electric Radio Controlled Buggy. This car was named the Auto Express Best Buy RC Car for 2016. It is a 1:10 scale four-wheel drive electrically powered car that can reach ridiculous speeds even off road. There is a lot to go through so let us begin.

The first thing to really talk about when looking at this car is to make sure that you know this is an upgraded car with a FSD 3300KV brushless motor, Lipo battery and Lipo charger. This shouldn’t be confused with the less powerful version which is powered with the NiMh battery. This is a tiny yet very important difference.

So, what does HSP XSTR Electric RC Buggy offer you?

One of the things we have heard mentioned time and time again is how fast the HSP XSTR Electric Radio Controlled Buggy is. There is a good reason for this – It is true. This car is really fast especially if you upgrade it from the 7.4 volt battery up to the 11.1 volt. In fact, it is important to understand that although quick it is also well built which is of course important for an off-road buggy. It will be going over jumps fast and will leave the ground. Impacts can take their toll so it needs to be strong and this model definitely has what it takes to survive the bumps.

A smaller consideration is the look of the car. You can see from the picture that it is black and blue. This can be changed to a blue and orange. This is particularly good if you are for example buying the same car for a brother and sister. Changing the colour could potentially stop arguments making it a consideration worth thinking about. I can see myself doing this in the future with my children.

The HSP XSTR Electric Radio Controlled Buggy In Summary

We feel that as off-road electric cars go this has got to be considered right up there with the best. It is fast, robust and has already won an award. We think it looks good in whatever colour you wish to get it in and just a look at the car you can see that it is top quality. If you turn up at the tracks with this car your friends will want to know more. It should also be pointed out that as hobby grade models go this does have everything that a hobbyist could ever want. Did we mention that it is fast?

Note: Remember that off-road cars can also be used on-road although this is a waste. We plan to do a blog post about how to get the most out of your off-road car if you do not have a track nearby but until then why not just check it out up and down curbs or in your garden.
