Default HPI steps up to the plate with new RS4

Front page of HPI's site has a new kit. RS4 3 SS. 12R motor, 2spd. Based off the shaft drive RTR3. Now if they can do it in RTR trim. About time, of course.

Default RS4 3

It`s not that good of a car, it could be alot better! It`s got a cheap feel to it,
they should of taken a bit more time on it. But thats just me.

Too little. too late as far as I'm concerned. Everybody else had a 2spd & tuned pipe a year ago.
They say they went to shaft drive because of the rocks getting into the belts, , HUH?
I have an Ob4 and a Colt 10 onroad, both belts, & have no problem with either.
My Racer 2 has tore up 1 rear belt. Must be the HPI design? Take dremel to the chassis, or put some duct tape over that
hole, at least thats what folks on the web have told me. Even RCCA mag says the shaft drive Rs4 has torque steer, DUH>
So yeah, I have to kind of agree with you, LOL.
