Which model RS4 to be exact? The 2, 3, SS, or Evo...the latter three are closer to similar than the first. The 2 has belts, the other three are shaft drive. I'm only asking since you said used and jsut to be clear.
All the cars are pretty sturdy however the earlier models lost front dogbones quite often. So, if you are jsut blasting away in parking losts, you should be ok. If you are actually doing club or parking lot racing, then you'll want to get some lower supension arms and front-drive knuckles. upgrad to the beefer ballcaps on the steering and throttle arms. Thos used to pop off alot on the older models.
Hope that helps...
