Default HPI RS4 Rally: Where to find one?

Anyone know where to get one? I really have been looking hard for one. Ebay never has them, at most they have the super nitro version but I want the electric. This was my dream car as a kid.

Let me know if you have one or know where I could find one! Thanks!

In case it's not clear, I'm looking for the electric version not the Super Nitro.

I know someone that has one that may be willing to part with it. I'll check with them and let you know.

I found one about a year ago on the forums here. If you search eBay, you will find one once in awhile.

I'd actually go with a Tamiya rally car. The HPI one is old and some parts might be hard to find.

I have had a HPI rally car and a Tamiya rally car. I liked them both, but as far as upgrades, the Tamiya has ALOT of upgrades out there. The HPI was nice, I really liked the inner and under chassis covers. When I had my Tamiya, I used a DF03 buggy body under my rally body to keep the chassis covered.

There is a Tamiya rally car in the FS forums now. $145 for a slightly upgraded roller. Not a bad deal if you want to take that route instead.

Thanks for your help sir, but I really only want the HPI Rally. I want it mainly as a nostalgia piece shelf-queen and some light running. Add to the collection.

Nice, thats what my intention was. I ran it a few times and had it on the shelf the majority of the time.

Unfortunately, I had to sell it. I guess I'll hunt for another one too!

Nice. I am talking to someone who has a NIB kit and wants to sell it. Hopefully I can land the deal!

Boo! He won't sell the NIB kit! What's the point of keeping it if you won't even build it!
