2017 the focus will be on the Encino Velodrome (and dirt oval racing)

I ran my Pro 2 on friday in a club race. I thought it did pretty good for being 18+ years old. Just have a little tweeking left to do and it should be right up there. Last time i ran it was on foam tires. Just a wee bit different on rubber...

I had this car when I was a teenager. At the time it was the best equipped car for the money with the graphite chassis with alloy shocks. Love the layout and design.

I can't seem to remember if this car came out in the spring of 1998 or 1999. I recall the previous car the RS4 Pro winning rc car action's car of the year award in '98 so I assume it came out that April of '99.

Here is my Pro2. Purple aluminum ontop of the stock includes rear diff halves, steering knuckles, hub carriers, body mounts, bulk head braces, lower arms, and a few other items. I still have a new decal sheet. Pictures do this car no justice.

h t t p : / / w w w .ebay.com/itm/Vintage-HPI-RS4-Diff-Hub-Kose-K-6054-Made-Japan-/181656931602?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2a4b98 cd12

the old Rs4 diff and the Pro/Pro 2 diff outdrives are the same. Good luck. Not sure if this kit comes wif diff rings though. Better txt and ask.

And btw I really really need A352 and A371 parts trees. I have a old Pro1 i am trying to restore-mod. Ended up using Pro2 front arms and Nitro3 hubs and carriers. And i wanna do the front upper arm mods. So if anyone have any new spares pls sell them to me, or appreciate it if you can point me in the right direction!

*i am not allowed to post URLS so i had to split it up. Just copy, paste and put them together*

Man miss having that Pro 2, it was a blast when I started in 1999 at my local club race track in Glen Burnie, MD.

Just found a pro 2 and a nitro rs4 racer 2 at an estate sale. 50 bucks for everything. Going to have to start the full rebuild on these.
