Here is my other Micro RS4. Strictly "Show Car". The only thing that is stock is the belt. But it was sold a long time ago... It featured all GPM Alloy Hopups and a IPD Racing 140mm graphite chassis.

Well, since you've started up & thread & I haven't shared this pic of my newest body, here's one of mine, it's still the stock chassis(with only the micro servo/steering linkage kit, some appropriate tires & rear ball diff installed, works like a charm since we just run the stock motors & 6 cell batteries. Oh, & I also have one of ProMatch's blasted Micro packs, & it rocks..)

Sweet rides guys!
Here's mine. I ran it all winter on carpet with a Peak Chubby motor and 6 2/3 cells saddle pack, rear HPI ball diff, Hitec HS81MG servo, optionnal steering links and TRC foams. All this is mounted on a 1.5 mm carbon fiber home made chassis with home made aluminum shocks. It ran like it was on rails and at one time, this guy with his Losi XXXS with a 19T Cameleon and me with my micro were having fun on the track and he couldn't shake me. I managed to pass him and he couldn't catch up. We were all impressed with the little Micro. I'm waiting for a sheet of blue carbon fiber from Art's Hobby to make another chassis. This summer, I plan to put back the stock motor and rubber tires to run on asphalt.

I had a micro about 2 years ago when they were brand new, and it was a fun car back then, but I had no idea it would turn into this craze! Cool lookin car man.

These cars have jumped and are on a whole other level. We are racing at Socal now on a monthly basis. We have been consistently faster than the intermediate stock drivers.
