this is a hpi nitro rs4 pro...2? i think...lol. i got it for about 100 bucks with a jr XR2i. it runs, needs some minor work(seal up the motor, new belts, driveshafst for the rear, some new screws) i've always wanted a touring car.(i also got a new camera so im not sure on how good the pics are) the body posts will get cut when i decide on a body.

fixed the rs4 to nitro rs4 :rofl:

I believe it is an original RS4 and not a pro2...nice little cars...I had one that was fully tricked out back in the day...even had the slide carb 15ss engine and the 2 speed. fast was an understatement.

I thought the RS4 Pro2 was electric only... ?, so its gotta be a nitro RS4....

yeah....i meant nitro rs4 :unsure: :rolling: but anyways a belt & a driveshaft seem to be missing in action :blink: last night i got it running and idling right without taking off on me and put new tires/rims on. now all im waiting on is the belts, driveshafts and a body..

i was going to put an os 18 in it and a 2 speed if i could find it :blink: but decided not to, anybody got any tips on keeping the car from bottoming out. its got like 2mm of shock travel :nono: in the front

is there any shock oil in? :blink:

it sounds silly but I've got a few RC's in trade or sales which appear to function but theres no oil left in the shocks....

other than that, pre-load spacers(usually used to set ride height as well as spring pre-tension) and possibly use of longer ball ends on the shocks may lift it up enough. if not longer shocks may be needed, but I'm sorry I am not familiar with that particular car, so I dunno if there are any major probs with such mods.... <_<
