HPI Racing True Ten – Classic Datsun 510 update

This bodyshell from HPI is a sure fire hit with Drifters.  It’s old school, and that means flared wheel arches with some crazy off set wheels to complete the look.

Here’s the code and description to help your search;

#100598 – CUP RACER 1M KIT WITH DATSUN 510 BODY

Let me know if you’ve got this shell on your Drift car and post it in the Gallery  section.

The other shells in the True Ten series are shown above as well, and these are;

#100597 – CUP RACER 1M KIT WITH DATSUN 240Z BODY
#100599 – CUP RACER 1M DRIFT KIT WITH TOYOTA LEVIN AE86 BODY

The chassis itself looks awesome, as it looks like you can change the camber angles.  I haven’t found a proper test review yet, and I’m not going to cut ‘n’ paste from HPI’s website – that’s just lazy.  I will hunt one down and get it tested myself if I can!

If you want just this bodyshell on it’s own, it is available, however you will need to mod your car unless you’re already running with a 1/10 mini car (ABC Hobby, HPI etc…) more details as you keep reading.

For the chassis conversion, if you have a Tamiya TT-01 and REALLY want this shell, you’ll need the TT-01 to MA-03 conversion set. It’s a 3Racing Conversion so you can be sure it’s a good quality one.

Once you’ve done that put your work in the Gallery section on this site!
