Default For sale : Very unique HPI Mini RS4, MUST SEE

I'm selling my Mini RS4 I didn't get a chance to use since 1 year and a half.
I was really not sure about selling it but it kills me to see it taking dust.

This chassis have tons of very exotic option parts and all the CF parts you see here are unique (I did the design and Fibre Lyte in the UK cutted them using high grade carbon fibre)

It's design for 4 cells NimH but you can sure adapt Lipo on it (wish I had the time to try a 3,7V pack). Tried a small 7,4V pack, it was crazy fast with a 5.5 Novak system

The car is very light, motor barely gets warm, very easy to drive and very nimble.

All screws, nuts, shims, ball studs are purple anodized aluminium or titanium.

here is the list of option parts it includes :
MIP CVDs
HPI composite diff balls
Alex Racing shocks with Xenon short bodies
Tech Racing purple turnbucles
Hot bodies spur gear mount (from the Cyclone)
Purple aluminium servo posts (Alex Racing)
Team Atlas purple hex hubs
HPI purple posts
Xenon purple tape
HPI springs (all colors, one pair each)
Aluminium antenna mount
HPI custom painted Mini body (for show only, I cutted the front grill opening so it's a bit fragile)
HPI Miata body with a RC10B4 rear wing
HPI swing bars (2x3 stiffness)

Fibre Lyte parts are
Main chassis and upper deck (2,5mm)
Motor mount and shaft support (2,5mm)
Rear shock mount (3mm)
Front body mount (3mm)

The upper part of the front bulkhead is made of 2 aluminium servo mounts and a CF parts, allows to fit longer camber links, and shocks are mounted closer to the center, it's also lighter and adds a bit of stiffness to the bulkhead.


A just for show set of Kawada rims with tread pattern Tamiya tire
A used set of HPI tires : work wonderfully !

Spares :
A-arms, pulleys, gear diff, locked gear diff (spool), Alex racing shock bodies, ball bearings, dog bones and drive shafts, one rear universal, original front bulkhead/shock mount stand, upper ams...

I want US$500 for it shipped.(alone the CF parts cost something like 450)

Thanks for looking.
