Default HPI Frankenstein

Here's a little something I am building by raiding the HPI parts bins

This started off life as a RS4 3,



I got a MT2 super chassis and graphite upper deck, super nitro arms and drive shafts, super nitro rally shock towers and bumper set, MT1/SNR single speed setup with slipper clutch and a MT2 100CC fuel tank. I used the shocks off my E-Firestorm as they are the same size as what a super nitro rally used. I also just got the lunsford turnbuckles and a RD pipe, I found some vintage Proline Road Hawgs that fit perfect on the HPI super nitro rimm too.. Here is what I have done so far.... how does it look?

So, my question is.......are you taking this on-road car and turing it into a rally car? Or, are you looking to make it into something differnt all-together?

Looks good so far, whatever you're doing
