HPI NITRO RS4 3 DRIFT
HPI NITRO RS4 3 EVO
I would post the links but I can't because I'm apparently not good enough for ya'll.
I think I like the drift cars much more but I hear they are slower and wear out easier? Also the page says the EVO comes with an electric starter am I right? This would be very useful would it not?
Look forward to your input.
Hi, yes the evo kit does come with an electric power starter, so there is no pull starting. You still will need a glow ignitor. You would need a 7.2v stick pack with a tamiya connector for the electric start.
My pops has the evo (not the drift), I bashed it in a parking lot last weekend. Its pretty fast, the engine makes plenty of power, and its still relatively controllable. ( it will power drift plenty on dusty concrete) It was fun until a header screw backed out and the pipe came separated from the engine.
