HPI has announced a new version of their popular stadium truck model, the Jumpshot ST 2.0. With a refreshed look and upgraded internal components, this brushed-powered machine should make for an excellent basher and all-around fun R/C model.
Among the highlights of this upcoming release are an enhanced, 12-turn 550-size brushed motor, beefier drivetrain and suspension parts, and a battery box that’s easier to access.
The chassis design remains the same, with twin metal plates acting as bread for an electronic and mechanical sandwich. The internal component layout is well thought-out and should make for easy maintenance when the need arises.
Most batteries with t-plug connectors can be used, including NiMh and LiPo packs. No price has been announced for this model, but I’d expect it to cost between $200 and $250 when it’s released.
