Default Where can I get some RS4 Pro 2 parts???

Thats right.......its the old school/new school thread redux....

For real though, I need Pro 2 parts, mainly body post parts and anything to make it a bit more bullet-proof. I haven't broken anything on it (yet) but with the introduction of the Novak GTB esc and Velocity 3.5R brushless motor, I have been ripping it up; I can drive courses and keep the car dialed, but I can crank down on the throttle and initiate some insane drifts...on regular tires!!!

I need to know where to find RS4 Pro 2 parts, I am aware that the Sprint 2 can pretty much supply most of my needs but I want to get some aftermarket gear for it too.

Can you guys guide me in the right direction?

BTW I can't wait to show off the Seibon Carbon/ Endless Imprezza Drift Car I am working on....you guys are going to flip!!!

Check out Tower Hobbies. I am assuming you need front body posts - these should work for you:

I'd also suggest a wider front bumper and nerf wings:

Thanks for the quick response....

I went through Tower Hobbies with a fine tooth comb... I am straight with the front post but the back post is the main issue. Also the chassis is nearly CF complete; only the front and rear bulkheads are still plastic. That is why I am looking to replace them with aluminum. I am also looking to replace the upper and lower A arms as well.

I am going to post pics up later today of the car and what I have done so far on the body...

Integy has some purple aluminum parts for it but they are not as dark purle as HPI's stuff. I have a few spare aluminum parts from integy. Also if you know exactly what spare parts you may want I can check my manual to see if I have what you may need.

This is my RS4 PRO2 but it isn't for sale though.

I had some good club racing with mine many years ago, solid cars.

Maybe keep your eyes peeled on ebay as they do pop up occasionally

I am looking for parts for this as well. I cracked the front of the rear-left lower arm. It still drives though--but I am only drifting so that there isn't too much stress on the part of the arm that didn't crack.

Tower still has some stuff

http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...I=HPIC0274&P=Z

Stratus if you have any extra parts for this I would be interested...



How do you guys keep the motor cool with the tight setup? I don't like how I can't put a heatsink on it...

I am running a Novak GTB with a Velociti 3.5R Brushless motor, with a 116 spur and a 37 or 38 pinion. Stays pretty cool, but the pack gets warm after a couple of runs, but thats natural...

I have a RS4 and some few parts laying around....I will check to see if I have a spare.
