Way better than any of the other RS4s. Are you racing or bashing around? Bashing, an Os .12TR or 5 port TR, RB X12 or V12, and MT12 are fine. You can use any of them as well for racing, unless its some HUGE track.

I've had both and the R-40 is the pro here. It has some many levels of tech compered to the RS4, but i guess you can make the RS4 competitive as well.
As for the engine, there are many, I race with a team orion .12 turbo engine, it handles well and its a fast engine, but there is also the RB engines, the OS engines and many others that work well depending on your needs.
As for the solid axle, i've tried the original one, the oneway and this weekend I' trying the solid axel that's designed for the rear in the front, to see how it handles. It's supposed to be the best of two worlds because you can break with all 4 tires instead of just the rear and you get 50-50 on the front tires and turn better.
good luck...

Most of it is gone, but we still have some ice and snow in some parts. Think I'll have room at the park to go bashing around a bit though.

Bashing should cost less than racing in all adspects. LOL. If the track is very large, the RB V12 3 port will do great. The Sirio is great for the price, though I don't see too many with em. Mainly RBs and Novarossi's.

The R-40's suspension is designed to use foam tires... I've tried rubbers, but foams work better...

LXFKK3 HPI Belt S3M 405 135T 5.0mm R40
LXFKK4 HPI Belt S3M 189 63T 5.5mm R40
LXFKE5 HPI Differential Pulley Set 46T/36T R40
LXFKH9 HPI Clutch Spring 1.6mm R40
LXFKE4 HPI Bumper Set R40
LXFKE1 HPI Pulley Set 23T/22T/19T/18T R40
HPIC3478 HPI Suspension Arm/Rear Hub Set R40

That's pretty much what I always have extras, but the belts usually go first, if the trac is dirty that the differential puleys can be destroyed, just get extra belts and pulleys and you'll be ok.
You can get all this parts at www.towerhobbies.com
good luck

You might not hit anything, but I sometimes get hit and that's how I got my pipe bent.
Nevertheless you should always be prepared, so I carry a box full of extras for the R-40 jejeje!
Mabe it's cause in Guatemala there are no LHS that carry anything for the R-40

Belts are fine as long as you stay outta the grass, dirt, and keep the tensioner on a medium setting.
