Default HPI RS4 ver 2.

I had this car nd it was great for getting into on road racing. HPI dose not make it anymore so find some used ones on e-bay for parts. They should be pretty easy to find.

For driving it I would always get rocks in the back belts, so just make sure the surface is clean before running...

That car looks pretty well maintained. It is a pretty old design though and belt drive is not really the best for bashing around with but it'll make a decent track car , they even had a racer version of it.

Only things I can see missing in that pic are the body posts. I'd consider it if the price was good , again it's a pretty old model - even HPI lists it on their site as "Heritage" , shop around and see if it's worth it for you. If you bash a lot , consider getting a shaftie too.

also, is this 190mm or 200mm? i want to buy a body and im not sure which to get cause im puzzled on what size it is.

and is there anyway i can make it 2wd? i wan a simple a setup as i can get, i was thinking of taking the pully off the front side and the belts off the front and taking the cvd's out and the diff from the front. would that work??

Its 200mm for all nitro touring cars. You can convert to 2wd, but it won't be nearly as fun to drive. 4wd is so much easier to drive and control.
