I won't add my name to a petition because I won't be buying one - however I do hope HPI seriously consider bringing back this style of car - now that LiPo and brushless are just on the edge of the mass market, a big machine like this is sure to have appeal to the customers who like the extra size and stability of a "superten" car, but don't want the hassle and lets face it, worse-than-electric performance of nitro.

The Super Electric RS4 was ahead of its time in many ways... I think maybe now its time has come! If HPI could package the car with, say, an 11.1V LiPO, an HV-size sensored brushless system and 2.4gHz it would be a lot of easy fun!

The graphite chassis looks much better than the stock chassis but we found the stock chassis being faster.
At the last touring wide nationals last year my winning Super RS4 was basically stock with just using front oneway and TRF shocks.

Did many of you compete in the HPI Challenge race a few years ago?

I always thought the SRS4 would make a great BL platform.

Here in Germany this weekend is the Final race for the HPI challenge. This means also itīs the last race for the super RS4 class.
The complete HPI Challenge is going Brushless now and they are cancelling the class where Brushless would make the most sense. Big shame.

Yes because of the big tires with high grip level brushless power is much easier to handle than with the narrow touring cars. Infact at the German Nationals last year on a big 1/8 gas track we used 4.5T brushless on 6cell batteries. Much fun.
Of course everybody was using the fast and highdownforce Toyota Gt1 body as always.
