2 x HPI RS4 Mini Pros, 1 x Tamiya Mini Cooper (the original chassis, forgot the number now), Tamiya Stadium Blitzer, Tamiya Stadium Thunder, spare parts to rebuild every car, batteries, chargers, tyres etc etc. All adds up.

Re: (Langers)

i have one tuned HPI Rs4-3 .12 nitro.
its pretty sik but needs a new front diff, youll be driving full throttle and all of a sudden the crown will slip from the pinion and it becomes rear wheel drive oversteers and rolls 16 times ripping the extractor off the head/block...
happen once and almost wrote the wjole thing off...
i think my car does just over 100kmph...
spent bout 1900 all up, exhaust, aftermarket nova piston, i boared the carb, pimped supension, carbon brake, slicks, hightorque ball bearing servos, hardcore temperature glowie/s.
wish i wasnt so strapped for cash and id get it up and running again.....
damn my mk1..
if anyone can be bothered hosting ill send pics http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
