its an hpi nitro rs4 2 rtr version. they were an alright car in their day but getting parts is going to be a little difficult being they stopped making them 8 or 9 years ago.

$250 is waaaay too much. Half of that and under would be more in line.

Beside that, parts are not that easy to find....

For 250 you can find much better.

The aftermarket made loads of hop-ups for the RS4 nitro back in the day. There's plenty left over. You should have no problem finding parts off E-bay for this. Eventhough they stopped making the RS4 belt drive, the parts from the current RS4 shaft drive should work (ie, CVD, arms, hubs, and knuckles). Have fun and don't worry.
