Default CAN SOMEONE POSSIBLY HELP WITH IDENTIFING A ON ROAD NITRO BY CHASIS NOT THE BOX

GO TO FOR SALE OR TRADE, HIT SEARCH FORUM, TYPE IN RS4 AND A LIST WILL COME UP, I BOUGHT THE ITEMS UNDER SCREEN NAME SEDATIVE, BUT I BOUGHT THEM THINKING I WAS BUYING AN RS4 2 OR ANY RS4 NITRO FOR THAT MATTER.

THING IS I GOT TO LOOKING CLOSER AT IT AND I DON'T BELIEVE I BOUGHT WHAT I THOUGHT I DID. IT WAS NOT FROM THE SELLER, HE DIDNT DO ANYTHNG WRONG, HE LISTED HE DIDNT KNOW EITHER IN HIS ADVERT. BUT HE SEEMS WILLING TO WORK WITH ME IF ITS NOT AN RS4. I KNOW THE RS4'S ARE ANCIENT.

but i like them there easy to work on, great parking lot cars, so with that if you could scroll over to that sceen for me and help me identify that car, and pay attention to the servo mounted on the top plate upside down, and the front a arms, i don't remember any rs4's have cups on there a arms. and i surely dont remember them having servo's for steering mounted upside down on the top plate.

SO CAN SOMEONE HELP ME WITH THIS, THIS IS DUE TO SHIP TOMORROW AND I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW BEFORE SO ME AND SELLER CAN WORK SOMETHING OUT ON THIS.

37 people have looked at my posting, and i cant get one fellow to browse my advert and see if they could be of help, i was under the impression the guys on here helped out in certain occasion's, hey i know im some what new, but ive been a member now for a couple years, and really never hav asked anyone for anything like this. this is a unique situation in which a mistake may have been made, and i know with the collective exsperience of the guys on this site, someone could possibly reconize this car. its in for sale for trade, click thread search, type rs4 and look at sedative screen name, the car listed under his advert is the car im trying to identify. any help would be appreciated, i think it is a serpent of some sort, cant be for sure i dont know much about serpent those have been out of my price range for years. i was hoping it to be the back yard rs4 version of on road nitro parking lot car. can someone take a look please

Sedative didnt seem to be co-operative. Did you use paypal ?

i think Wing Racer is correct. i just looked at all previous RS4 Nitro cars, and all of them run C Hub front suspension. some are also shaft driven too.
a picture of the OFNA OB4 and it just looks like the car pictured in the for sale section. but when i ran Pull start Class, there were Many parts that were interchangable from Various cars, seemed the plat Form was all the same, so i then went completely different direction and Got a hold of a Yokomo GT-4. Awesome car. even though this car may be part Ofna and Part HPI, i dont think it represents what is on the Box and exactly what you are going to Buy... an RS4 !

THATS ALL THEIR IS TO IT. I FEEL.
