Default hpi nitro Rs4 3 firebid transam

I love my .25 savage but in 1 or two years I am looking at a 2000-2002
pontiac firebird and want a r/c car that looks like the real fire bird .
So is the rs4 3 fast and reliable and a good car or is there another car that will fit the fire bird body.And will the .25 savage radio fit this car.





heres what Iam looking at

Any 200mm nitro body can fit any 1/10th nitro touring car. The good thing about the hpi firebird body and the rs4-3. Is it will be exact and has dimples already in place for easy cutting. Other touring cars might need the dimples marked for the body posts.

If you like your savage then I say stick with hpi. I tend to do this so things are familiar. Plus Im an HPI fan. Im the same with cars. I tend to stick with the honda / acura import breed. They are more familiar to me so I automatically like them more.

You can't get that car from tower hobbies. It might be on E-bay BUT you can get any 1/10 nitro car and then slap a firebird body on it. You might even be able to match the year. HPI makes tons of 200mm bodies.
