hpi rs4 3 evo+ (.18 2 speed) vs Schumacher Fusion(.21 3 speed)
Just wanted people thoughts on this battle, I am looking for a really good street basher that has great acceleration and an amazing top speed with as good durability as possible.
My thoughts are, The fusion has a lot more speed/power (2.85hp especialy with a 3 speed, although its not as adjustable) but has a bit less technology in the components but makes up for it by using very durable thicker pieces but has less support from neighbouring hobby stores for replacement parts.
Whereas, the rs4 3 evo+ has a bit less power (2.2hp with 2 speed but more adjustabiilty in the transmission) has more technology, parts are pretty durable but not as durable as the fusion stock for stock but has great support from hobby stores if it ever breaks down.
My biggest question is, is it possible to drop in a bigger engine into the evo+ ?? I have been even thinking about getting the 18ss then dropping in something bigger as well (as well comes with beefed up stock parts and 2 speed). I also want to hear which one you guys would get and why you think its better for street bashing?
What I had in mind was at least an .21 engine or even a .28? There are a lot of guys already with the fusion running a .28 engine (No not the new fusion that came out by the previous .21 versions with upgraded .28 engines). How difficicult is this, and what would be needed to do this on the rs4? I need at least a modified .21 to be satisfied.
The speed is where the fun factor is at for me, but no I would not go with a pure "dragster" drag car want to keep it a touring 1/10th onroad car.
