Default Looking for advice on this car. What is it

i got a guy on craigslist that wants to sell me this RC yes to me also it looks beat i just want to know what it is first. hes only asking 75 but not sure if its worth it.


to me it looks like a super nitro. Ive talked to the guy and he said there is 2 gallons of fuel through it and will show that it runs great. I know some sites still sell the super nitro so would parts be hard to find?

right i figured out what it was. its an old Super nitro but this guy said its only had 2 gallons through it but it looks like its been through hell. so i decided not to get it from him.

I do know there are a couple of places that still sell the Super Nitro such as http://www.hobbyfever.com/product_in...roducts_id=293 and they still carry parts for it.

It is an RS4-2, not a super nitro. Why? It is because they never made X-pattern tires for the Super Nitro, only slicks. The X-pattern tires are true 1/10th scale only and would not fit Super Nitro rims.

I would hold out and try to find an HPI Racer 2 instead.....It had better parts and ioptions as standard eqiupment and would make a perfect car for the HPI challenge in the vintage nitro class....

I still own 3 fully optioned racer 2 chassis, and I am converting them all to vintage cars...you can see them on my site under pics...
visit fastharry.com We are always updating the site with new cars and cool rc stuff.

If you are into restoration of RC cars or just building a shelf queen, This site seems to still have parts for that car...in all its glorious purple aluminum.
