The Meteor is a 1:16 scale nitro ready to run RC Buggy from HSP. This car is quite a gem, with only handful of manufacturers offering Nitro RC cars in this scale. HSP Racing has taken on the challenge and created a really great mini radio controlled buggy!
This is an upgraded version with 2.4Ghz radio equipment and .07 nitro engine. The Meteor has all the features of a full sized model packed into a super mini chassis. As with full scale models, this buggy features oil filled shocks, waterproof electronics, anodised aluminium chassis, both shock towers and a radio tray. Off-road tyres, front and rear working differentials for better grip and faster cornering, disc brakes to slow this model from the top speed of 40mph in just a few meters, are just a few of many features of this model. The heart of the Meteor RC buggy is the compact modern 07 size engine; reliability and massive power output are its main characteristics.
The HSP Meteor radio controlled buggy is very practical. Due to its size, it's easy to store and transport. You can easily take it on a weekend trip with family or friends, but don't forget to bring your starter kit and nitro fuel! It wouldn't take too much space in your car but will deliver an unforgettable experience and memories from that weekend away!
In summary, if you are looking for great looking model for beginners and best quality is on your must have list as well as powerful nitro engine - the Meteor Buggy is the perfect choice.
Solid aluminium chassis with countersunk screws is light but strong. Splash guard sides will keep the inside nice and dry.
4WD WITH FRONT AND REAR DIFFERENTIALS
The four wheel drive improves grip when cornering. The power is transferred to the wheels via front and rear differentials that further improve handling.
2.4GHz RADIO TRANSMITTER
All new 2.4GHz radio technology is used. This is more reliable than the old FM equipment and allows multiple RC cars to be used in the same area without interference.
This nifty 1:16 scale Buggy is ready for on and off-road terrain!
POWERFUL SH .07 ENGINE
A brand new .07 nitro engine made in Taiwan gives lots of power making the buggy very fast.
38cc FUEL TANK
A decent sized fuel tank so you can spend more time racing and less time refueling.
SEALED RADIO BOX PROTECTS ELECTRONICS
Helps keep the electronics protected against dust and water.
Adjustable aluminium capped oil-filled shocks are mounted to aluminium towers that allow you to adjust the angle and tension.

What is the top speed and can I make it go faster
