I would love to know where to find a nice Mercedes body like that. I have not found a website that does not list them as sold out

Last 2 of 3 200mm bodies that I will be doing for a while. Just sharing before I place them in the classifieds.

Here is a list of my upgrades:
-Vantage pipe
-Jaco foam tires
-Threaded aluminum shocks
-Pull start
-Racing fuel tank
-Battery pack
-Carbon fiber front tower
-Carbon fiber rear tower
-Carbon fiber upper deck
-Carbon fiber bumper plate

And here are some pictures:

Hey SerpentCT4S, where did you get your HPI RS4 3 and all the upgrades? I am seriously looking into buying one of these and upgrade it for racing.

I got the RS4 and all the upgrades from my local shop. I used to work there and got everything there on discount. I tried to get you on AIM, but you arent on. IM me there if you want to chat.

I tried to find the vantage tuned pipe, but the only place I could find it was the manufacture, but they they are asking 80.00. If I can find it for around 60.00 or under, I might pull the trigger.
