Default Soft Suspension Arms

These stock Suspension Arms arm Soft. (the Rear Suspension Arms are Very soft)

The Rear Suspension Arms are bending.

I want to install Pro 4 Suspension Arms on the chassis; but they're Hard to get.
I'll try another stiffer suspension arm option for this chassis. . . . .if any(?)

Cyclone TC, TCX or TCXX... I'm quite sure you can also go for HPI Pro5...

oh sweet jesus cuda!
That body is is a looker, but ever more, I need those foams!!!!!!!!
Glad i dropped in for a look.
Mines been in the box since cannibalizing the electronics to another car. But just dug it out after finding a brand new Flux MMH-4000 motor and EMH-3S speed controller on ebay for less then $85.
I'm still surprised at the lack of part availability. Pulled the Hoonicorn body off to more or less save it from wear and tear since you can only find them on ebay for over $100 and have been running TC bodies with foams, would love to run a Flux body with those wide foams, especially since it's almost impossible to find the wheels and tires for it. Hell, if any one knows of good offset foams that fit something like the spec 5 body that would be great too.

Which castle fan is that?

I've heard HPI E10 Sway-Bars can fit the RS4 Sport 3.(?)

If anyone has those Sway-Bars installed on their RS4 Sport 3 chassis; please take a picture and post it on this thread.

Thank You

shocks from a sprint 2 (take offs can be found cheap on eBay) and some shock spacers or longer springs

Anything more than that and the a arms will hit the chassis.

I think I understand. You should look for Yeah Racing shocks. They exist in 50mm, 55mm and 60mm. Measure yours and add 5mm :-)

Default Will this work?


I built a tiny third channel module holder


NOTE: itís not glued so i still have room to edit it.


Please let me know if aluminum would work better.


Drive safely
