well you can always buy hopups from online if you cant find them at your LHS. i just think that the gt4 is better. it has better suspension than the hpi and if you plan to race, the gt4 is better than the hpi, from what i heard, cuz im still new to this too. lol. well, its really up to you.

If you have no plans of racing it for a while, and just want to drivearound in the parking lots, I would go for the HPI. While the Yokomo will handle better, there's only about a 5mph difference between the two, with the yokomo edging the RS4 SS out. All I would reccomend is that right off the bat, you spend the extra money for a racing clutch (stock one sucks)part #A885, and a better exheust. The RS4 SS comes with a header, but it's still restrictive. I would reccomend the Traxxes T-maxx header, part #4940, and the tuned pipe of your choice. Spend this extra $50. or so, and you'll have a Yokomo covered with ease. The HPI cars are a whole lot easier to find parts for, and hopups are cheaper, and more available. That'smy 2 cents
