Original HPI RS4 Pro - Brushless Beast

Post by Mendoza » Sun Sep 06, 2015 6:50 am

Found one of my old favourites. About 12 years old. It's an HPI twin carbon fibre plate road car - the chassis alone cost me $600 back then..Belt driven 4WD. I dug it out of my parents garage whilst on Father's Day. Heck I'm taking her home.. This was pulling about 60MPh before I left the hobby for a while and before Lipo existed, I put in a Novak 3.5 velocity motor and esc when brushless first hit the scene... I'm going to grab some lipos and run it... This thing was uncontrollable on nimh!! I had to put on 1/10 scale HPI stadium truck wheels and ground the tyres down to rubber slicks to try and get traction. Check out the photos an absolute classic. I was running a 911 turbo shell and remember repainting the lotus before I got married and it went into storage. BEAST

Do any members have any parts for sale or know where to get them from in the U.S.? It's an extremely rare model these days .... I have had a quick look and now thinking maybe I should just shelf this legend if I can't buy parts.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated
