Default Do you race it?

I'm assuming with all the goodies that you race? Don't have a RS4-3.
Current stable of R/C:

1) HPI Super Nitro /w Picco .15 SE & novarossi slide carb
2) Trinity Reflex n/t /w Picco .15 RE & novarossi slide carb
3) HPI Nitro2 RS4 .15FE /w Traxxas 6mm rotary carb non-pullstart
4) HPI Pro-3 /w P2K2 Stock motor, Car is mostly stock.
5) Trinity Reflex n/t /w RB .12SE slide carb (my Stepsons car)
6) Traxxas T-Maxx /w O.S. .15CVRX slide carb.
7) Tamiya TL01, mostly stock.
8) RC10GT Team Built / w O.S. .12 CV Hyper (Stepson's car)

The HPI Nitro2, T-Maxx and Tamiya TL01, all belong to my 7yr old son.

Default Since your local

Check out the Racing Forum and the RC Comp. thread.
I have posted the schedule for the rest of 2002.

I've kinda been boycoting Revelation since when they first canceled their Saturday sedan program. I don't like racing on the big layouts. I prefer a parkinglot size track better.

Default HPI Nitro RS4 3

I just saw that the HPI nitro rs4 3 is 209.99 RTR at ultimatehobbies.com. That price sounds like a steal, my question is is it worth it? does anyone run this car? this would be my first nitro so is it worth ir for a newbie?
Thanks!

Does sound like a good price for the rtr. I don't have an RS4-3 but I do have a nmt and the drive systems are the same. I would say go for it.

Default Good price for a decent car

rcracer123;

Definitely a great price. I seen quite a few out at the race tracks and they handle much better than the older cars. For bashing you just can't go wrong with an HPI. Ultimate Hobbies is a good place to shop also.

Default hpi rs4 3 ss bigblock

hello i was thinking of buying the wolfpack radicals converstion kit for my ss...i was wondering what big blocks will work in the car after i get it...cause im not sure what the crank type is in the ss to look for a bigblock..so any help would be great as i am allready looking at some engines...like will the ofna engines work,or the os 21,or even the hpi 21..and also is there one out there that i could use a pullstart on unstead of the starter box..

fastharry is right ... why bother and also why not just get an outlaw 5 port like a Rody or JP or Massimo Fantini? They will rip the track.

these cars dont really handle that bad if they are set up right..i just think it would be cool to have a big block because of the awesome tourqe you would have..and the ability to rocket out of turns..the big blocks i have seen run are just amazing...and i dont race yet so i would just be using the big block to play around with
