What car is this???

Does anyone here know what version/generation of the RS4 this is? Check out the pics and please let me know. I got it in a big package deal and I want to sell it because I have no interest in onroad, but I donít know how much to ask for it if I donít know what it is! Also, any guesses as to how much itís worth? Thanks so much!

Looks like a sport 2 to me. I could be wrong though.

That's an original RS4. I used to own one aswell. It came out before the RS4 PRO.

It's the original RS4. Put it on Ebay. If it was New In Box it would go for couple of hundred. As it is,,, who knows.

In all reality, do not buy it. You will enjoy bashing or racing a lot more with a more modern car. Look for a gently used TC3. If you love HPI like I do, look for a used Pro2 or a Pro 4 if you can fin one.

Thanks for all your help guys! The consensus on this forum and another is that it is the original RS4 with some hopups. And just for clarification, Iím not buying it, I own it and want to sell it. Picked it up in a big package deal I bought because I was interested in the other stuff in the deal. I just wanted to find out what exactly it is before I try to sell it, and you guys have been very helpful.

In terms of electronics, it has a JR Z250 steering servo, Tekin G-12c speed controller (if my memory is correct), Duratrax mini receiver (smallest Rx Iíve ever seen!), and an unknown motor (looks good and nice, but donít know what it is.) It's also got some spare parts. I think for now Iíd like to sell it as a roller with the servo and spare parts. Some people have told me itís worth $50 to $75 as a roller. Any other estimates?

i have owned every rs4 sedan including this one there first! Notice it has a slipper? There was all kinds of speculation of offroad buggy version because of the slipper and 3 gear tranny.

IT was a nice car in its day. :

Yeal man !

I started off with a HPI centerline battery hopup chassis for the TA02, which lead to an original RS4 followed by one RS4 Pro followed by two RS4 Pro2 followed by three RS4 Pro3. (Still have all these 8 cars !)

However, it ended there. ....there won't be any 4 Pro4 !
