What other options would you look at? I'm also considering the TC4, Cyclone S, etc.
I have an RS4 Pro that I just brough out of storage. It had been boxed up for 10+ years.. I was able to find a hobby store that was clearing out all of their old HPI parts. I scooped up all of their RS4 parts @ 80% off of retail.
If you don't have one, I wouldn't suggest buying one. They were great cars in thier prime, but I think technology has past them by. I have upgraded mine to brushless only because I already had the car.
I have found myself having to make parts now, as this evening I hit a curb very hard and it actually broke the graphite upper deck. SInce parts are scarce I made a new upper deck from aluminum. Which is actually more rigid!! but a bit heavier.
I would buy something that is still in production, or at least something that has parts still being made. Keep in mind the RS4 Pro is well over 10 years old.
