Does anybody uses this kit? I still use this in our club race and still kicks some ass. I have two of them. Will post pictures soon.

I just bought a couple of pan cars, but before I bought them I was looking to purchase a RS4 Rally but couldn't find any anywhere. Not even used of EBay.

This thing is a gem to keep and use. Its very durable, nothing really breaks. I have this for about 5 years now. In Japan they still uses this kit. Ive watch a rally race in snow in you tube and its really entertaining.

I still have mine and use it for bashing around. I may try and run it in the 4wd open class at my offraod track. The thing is still a blast to drive around.

I wish I still had mine with the Schumacher mini pin tires. What a fun car!

Great car, I still race it with some friends with the rs4 and converted tc3, of course, the hpi is better. Almost indestructible, never breaks. We race 9 primes in a day, only one car at the time, as real rally. Really fun.

I couldn't find one when I was looking. I took one of my HPI Pro2s and reworked the suspension and turn front shock tower upside down. Works great as a rally car. Only problem is the speedo comes loose from the dirt finding its way under the double sided tape.
