Default RS4 - Porsche 911 Turbo - Rebuild

Hello Out There,

I am getting back into the hobby after an unmentioned number of years (let's just say mah's were the only battery discussion and LIPO was a medical procedure). I decided to jump in with both feet and bought an old RS4 off eBay for about $100 bucks.

I know its older, but I felt it was a good place to start. I am hoping that it has all accessories (radio, starter,...) in working order. Then I can focus on bodies and hop-ups. If you have any ideas of where to find the replacement parts, that would be great. When I get the items in hand I will continue this thread and share my build.

Oh yeah, I also work in a shop with laser cutters and water jets. I can get scrap pieces of the fun materials (Al, Composite, Ti). So I will be making my own parts as well.

... Best place for parts for RS4
Is probably eBay itself... I've never had an RS4 but cars and parts
seem to be readily available and can be had for cheap... Sending you a PM
