LOL SuperFastSnail .... truth be told the majority of my Hpi cars have been in my collection for a long period of time dating back to the HPI Challenge Cup parking lot racing decades ago. Over a period of time a collection builds slowly. The Super Rs4 are still one of the best handling & fun driving on road cars when setup properly....for me anyway.

My Hpi RS4 Sport Shelf Queen
This car was mostly built from spare new parts that I had laying around.
The only hop ups are ball diff and turnbuckles to keep the original look of the car.

I got this un-driven HB cyclone TC Andy Moore , it's been built and put on a shelf buy the previous owner , picked this up for a cheap price the previous owner was getting out of the rc game and was selling up everything , I'm leaving this as an un-driven chassis as it's just to good to use

I got the HB cyclone tcx in a swap deal , this chassis now runs a brushless system with a 4.5 t motor and a 3s lipo , this car absolutely flys and handles so good , I've still got a little bit of fine tuning to do yet to get it the way I want it to handle but that should be done very soon

This is my 1/12 hpi switch which I have converted it from fwd to rwd, this car runs a brushless system with a 6.5 t motor , this little car is so much fun and turns heads everywhere it goes , the switch chassis is very basic and has minimal tuning so it really is a bit of a handful now it's rwd but it's very fun to drive and makes you drive it very different to the awd chassis's , you can't just give it full throttle like most cars , it takes me back to being a kid when I got my first rwd buggy but this thing has feels like it's got ten times the power of a stock 540 tamiya motor

Some lucky guy bought this off me seven years ago. I had forgotten about this thread. Enjoy the classics.
