All of my pictures are on a cell phone. I don't know how to post pictures on this site(I've tried).

It's my son's HPI RS4 Sport 3 chassis.
I took old 64-pitch gears from my HPI Pro 4 and installed them on the RS4 Sport 3.

Photobucket app. Took me 3 years to figure out how simple it was. Only bad part is getting around 15 emails a week from them. Not worst thing.

Thanks for the info Billy Kelly.

My daughter told me to keep the app downloads to a minimum.

But; I really want to show my R.C. Car pictures.

Is there another company besides Tamiya that makes a 46mm outer-drive shaft that fit?
(The Hot Bodies 46mm outer-drive shaft pins can't fit in the Outdrives.)

SpecR was what most owners used back when it was first released. I can't remember part number. You would have to check back to the early pages. Think it's was SpecR Tamiya cvds. 46mm. With them you can just skip the stock dog bones.

Thanks for the info Billy Kelly.

I think item # 51092 - Tamiya 46mm Swing Shafts; will be a better fit in the Front. . .(how weird; Tamiya parts installed on an HPI chassis)

Welcome. It's was on page 4

These are what most of us early owners used.

@cudacharger what trailing arms are you using? Also are those Yeah racing springs?

At this point mine is stock and I have the SpecR shafts waiting to be installed and have been debating with where to go next, the car is sloppy so I just want to make her a little more stable. From my research it seems like the Yeah racing set up is the way to go.
