    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...

However I'm trying to mount a G3.0 engine, using a 21mm brace, but I find that the nut on the carb is wedged against...

    Hello! I've recently unearthed a relatives RS4 from roughly 2002-4, however it is in a state of repair and needs some TLC.

    HPI RS4 Exhaust System

    I need to "upgrade" or change the exhaust system in my RS4. The reason being, the body covers the exhaust tube. I have noticed with this being an old RS4, the original exhaust system is not something that is very popular today. What kind of system should I be replacing this with? Does the...
