The Vortex is a racing spec RC buggy from HSP. This buggy has a powerful 540 motor and 7.4V 2000 mAh battery. The high grade bucket style chassis and upper deck help to reduce weight and lower the centre of gravity resulting in faster cornering and protection for the electronics from dust and dirt, while the 4WD system with front and rear differentials evenly distributes the power to the wheels making this buggy excellent both on-road and off.
The Vortex RC buggy is a great all rounder so perfect for people who want to race on all different surfaces. The radio controlled buggy comes fully built with everything you need to get going apart from eight normal AA batteries for the radio handset. Features include 2.4Ghz radio equipment, a strong aluminium centre drive shaft and oil filled aluminium capped shocks that give excellent suspension.
WATERPROOF SERVO, ESC AND RECEIVER
Waterproof electronics make the model more splash proof for driving in wet conditions or if you hit a puddle.
ALUMINIUM CENTRAL DRIVE SHAFT
At the centre of the 4WD system is a strong aluminium drive shaft that transfers the power from the rear to the front diff for even power distribution and excellent off road ability.
POWERFUL MOTOR SYSTEM
A speedy motor that that gives lots of power and acceleration. Comes with a heat sink to keep it cool ensuring that it is performing at its best at all times.
POWERFUL SUSPENSION & OIL FILLED SHOCKS
Strong suspension system with pivot ball mounts can withstand rough terrains. The shock angle is adjustable to suit the terrain and your driving preference.
A cool looking wing spoiler at the rear of the model gives good downforce to stop it slipping at speed.
4WD SYSTEM WITH FRONT AND REAR DIFFERENTIALS
This model is 4 wheel drive which gives better grip and handling. There are working differentials at the front and rear like on a real car to give much better cornering ability and further improves the handling.
The dimensions of this model measure in at 360mm x 160mm x 255mm

Please could you advise what the approximate running time is for this using the supplied 7.2V 2000mah battery?
- Posted byon Wednesday, 24 October 2018Hello - thank you for your question. This model will approximately last up to 10-15 minutes depending on the terrain the model is being driven on and the users driving style.
How fast will it go
- Posted byon Wednesday, 13 December 2017
Depending on the surface, this model has a top speed of approx 20-25mph
I need a new charger for the 7.2V battery, which on do i need to buy?
- Posted byon Wednesday, 2 March 2016Hi, Thank you for your question. You can find the required charger here on our site: http://www.nitrotek.co.uk/rc-accessories/chargers-adapters/ni-mh-charger.html
Hi; just to confirm does this come as a complete kit ie car, charger and control (transmitter) and as you say above just needs batteries? Also are these suitable for using in wet grass/mud or only for dry days?
- Posted byon Thursday, 12 November 2015
Hi, yes it comes with everything including charger etc. It is ok on wet grass. It is splash proof. Of course if you drove it into a pond or something it would probably break.
Hi, If I purchase this (or another buggy) and want to buy a spare battery for longer play life do I need to purchase another charger or do the 7.2V batteries just plug into the already supplied charger?
- Posted byon Monday, 19 October 2015
The recommended additional battery will just plug in the the supplied charger.
Roughly, what is the top speed of this car? Thanks
- Posted byon Tuesday, 11 August 2015Hi Dan the top speed is about 15mph
im thinking of buying this and i just want to ask does this rc come with the battery to run the model if so then brill if not then i will have to buy a separate battery
- Posted byon Tuesday, 3 June 2014This item comes with everything necessary to run the item apart from battery's for the transmitter.

Vortex rc buggyBy Rc mania August 21, 2013
I've had a lot of fun out of it but all the parts are plastic I've had to replace the front suspension pad. But over all a pretty good car
overall this car is brilliantBy gsxrdave1974 January 05, 2013
my first opinion of this car when i opened the box was excellent, the build quality of the car is very good, i like the idea of it coming with a fully charged battery, the car is fast with precise steering and throttle action, it's fun to drive and is very good on and off road, it has good suspension, which does what it's suppose to, it's a very good car for the money and is worth every penny.
it's the ideal rc buggy for a beginner or for some one on a budget looking for a proper rc buggy and not a toy all the parts on the buggy are replaceable if damaged unlike the toys which break and can't be replaced, if you choose to you can upgrade the parts and replacement parts are easy to come by and you can also upgrade the motor, speed controller and battery to make it faster.
my opinion is go out and buy one to see the greatness for yourself. i received the buggy as a birthday present from my girlfriend and i am very pleased to say the least thanks nitrotek for such a great product
Excellent Rc carBy Blondie June 12, 2012
Had a lot of fun with this rc model although as with all rc things it is very flimsy. But overall a very good product and at such a low price!
