    Nitro rs4-2 build

    When i went out of town i found this neat hpi belt driven nitro which i believe is an rs4-2. The chassis is in nice shape but I'm sure with how i drive it won't stay that way. I also got a few goodies such as a thunder tiger 12 and aluminum rims. The tires are worn but i'll keep them on there...

    Thinking of home making a pan car

    IS making a pan car even possible? It seems easy to make. If you made one could you share some insight on the process and if you had a specific budget what was it and did you stay beneath it?

    Kyosho FW06 Crash run

    Slammed it into a parked car. Surprisingly, hardly any damage. no broken parts, just a little tear on the body and a bent body clip. Installed the foamies all the way around. Running 30mm as opposed to 24mm. Wider wheels and slightly rubbing on the steering turnbuckle. Also, black residue on exhaust

    TC4 rear differential issue

    Hi everyone, I'm returning to RC after many many years. I won't say how many, lol! A few years ago I built a TC4 FT kit. This is my first touring car, back in the day I had a Team Losi JRX (I think that was the name, I still have it actually). The build went smooth, I put in a brushless...
