HPI’s revised Sprint 2 Drift hit the pages of our March 2012 issue. The new version has exciting features such as waterproof electronics, vibrant orange anodized aluminum components and comes as a complete ready to run package with battery, charger and even AA batteries for the radio. The car is topped off with a killer factory finished Nissan 350z body with sweet Volk style gold wheels on all four corners. The car gets easily sideways in smooth parkinglots; we had a blast getting crossed up in wide sweeping corners and getting the bumpers within millimeters of curbs. A few curb swipes were not to graceful and sent the car spinning, but the Sprint is built so tough, it walked away without damage and just left a few battle scars on the body.
