HPI Jumpshot SC R/C Short Course Truck

HPI Jumpshot SC R/C Short Course Truck

My first taste of hobby-grade radio-controlled fun came in the form of a short course truck. While I’ve moved away from this type of vehicle, I still look back on my experiences fondly. Short course trucks are versatile machines, perfect for ripping around your back yard, tearing up and down the road, or blasting around a local track.

With a number of SCTs on the market, HPI has thrown their hat into the ring with their Jumpshot SC. Part of their Jumpshot line, this short course truck is a two-wheel drive truck featuring waterproof/water-resistant electronics, adjustable chassis and suspension components, and a unique chassis design.

That chassis uses HPI’s TVP (Twin Vertical Plate) design that differs from the designs that you’ll see on other popular SCT models.  Rather than using a tub-style layout, two aluminum plates sandwich the internal components, reducing areas for debris and dirt to catch and rest when you’re out for a day of fun.

Adjustability is at the heart of the Jumpshot SC from the modular chassis design to the suspension and handling components. The shocks are oil-filled and feature turning adjustment rings for right height and spring tension.

Powering this truck is a 15-turn brushed motor and an included NiMh battery (7.2v, 2000mAh). The HPI SC-3SWP2 electronic speed control (ESC) will handle both NiMh and LiPo batteries, allowing you to step up the power as your needs and skills change.
