The NRS4 has been sitting on the shelf for a while and I cannot allow that anymore. It must run again! I'll be taking it to the LHS here shortly to make that happen.

Edit: It's alive!!! It fired up with minimal effort and ran great. Cost a bit though. Needed fuel, tubing, filter, new glow driver, receiver and 6V pack.
Love the pagani - I did the silver version

That looks great! The wheels look perfect on it. I've also got a silver Zonda and a Murcielago. Lambo bodies are kinda rare these days so I don't run it. The Zonda is more stable anyway. I wish HPI would make an Aventador body.

I fired up the ol' NRS4 this morning and ran it around the parking lot at work. Within minutes, the belt driven drivetrain was locked up with tiny pebbles stuck in three different gears. This was always the one major problem with the NRS4 and it's a problem I will no longer have with my new shaft driven WR8. I hate to do it but it may be time to retire the NRS4 to a nice display case. In 10 or so more years, it will be an antique!
