Default RS4 Evo+

I've been looking for a parts list to turn this car into a better parking lot racer. Suggestions? I am also in the process of ordering from 'RCBoyz' (comments?) as their prices reflect the reason. I am definitely changing the rotary to a slide carb os 18 cvrx, because I like the slide on my savage. Anyone have any past experiences with the RS4 to 'better' the p. lot racing aspect? I ran the car a few days ago with some m radials and they suck, can't stick, spun out 8 of 10 times, so I was going to put my d-compund on the back to see how it handled today.

If you upgrade your engine, you will have to upgrade the drive train to CVDs otherwise the excess power will just snap those joints easily.

I had an RS4 Evo a couple of years back, upgraded like hell, but still doesn't perform nearly as well as the higher end cars in the race track but great for parking lot bashing sessions. I spent $$$ for clutch, shocks, CVDs, heavy duty middle shafts, engine mounts, centax clutch conversion (from RCBoys) adjustable linkage, new chasis. It had a .12 Novarossi + centax clutch and that thing accelerated like a rocket.
