    Incase I flip the car the zip ties take most of the damage, which has already happend 3 times.
    And I won't be able to find a replacement head for that engine.

    Sway bars:

    Ok the way they work, when you come to a turn, no matter how sharp our car will lean to the opposite side that you are turning. Right? With the sway bars it pushed down on both wheels so when you come to a turn the other tire will not lose contact to the ground and will be pushed down ward too.

    If you put I. The sway bars and remove the shocks you will be able to see how it works. So there I do believe that the stiffer one goes to the front scence the front tire is the one that goes up in the air. You will be able to tell if you take a pic will the car is speeding at a turn.

    Zip ties are to protect the engine if the car were to flip upside down.

    Fdjizm. Where do you get those wheels?

    They are RC4LESS dirt oval foams in 45 shore.

    I cut them down to 24mm, though.
    You just take off the hexes and drill out the hole with a reamer just a bit and they slide right on the pin.

    ^video of my rs4 at "idle" [:@]

    Sup guys, I'm having problems getting my car to actually idle. I have the idle screw set pretty much as low as it can be. Back the screw out any more the engine cuts out. Today was the second day that I ran the car since rebuilding it, so the clutch (HPI A885) is pretty fresh. Initially, I was having the same idle problem yesterday and I was thinking that maybe the clutch was engaging early. I did not cut any clutch material off when I installed. I asked for some input on another forum it was suggested that if I felt the idle was set correctly, that I should just go ahead and run the car to allow the clutch to break in some rather than cutting any material off. I've put the car through about 3-4 tanks now and you can see pretty clearly how high it's still idling, lol.

    Another suggestion was made to me that I should lean the low-end a bit, anyone else have some input as to what can remedy this? Thanks

    Does anyone have problems stripping their front axles? I was running mine today any it popped out and locked the whole system i thought i broke something major but it ended up being one of the front axle. I was just wondering if anyone had problems stripping that?  I put another o ring in the diff and it fixed it.

    Limeaway510,

    Can you take a picture of the carb barrel when the engine is running at idle? It sounds like the engine is running to
    fast for an idle. The clutch is engaged as a result. You might need to adjust the low end needle to get it to slow down.

    RE: OFFICIAL RS4 RTR 3 thread!!!!!!!Also type SS and others

    @jamesc43 I've fixed the problem since that post! The servo horn was set in a position that pushed the throttle linkage just a little bit too far forward, thus giving me that false idle as the carb opening was bigger than 1mm. Just needed to rotate the horn a bit and problem solved. Appreciate the help though!

    @rx7devil210 I think that's a problem with all rs4s (dogbones popping out). It's happened to me a couple times, and you're correct in adding another o-ring to fix the problem. It may be different for you, but I found that adding two o-rings to both of the diff outdrives caused the dogbones to be too tight. You do want a LITTLE bit of play, but as you've discovered too much play leads to the bones popping out.

    Instead of two o-rings on each side, I used one on each side, then I sliced up some thinner 'o-rings' using some extra fuel line. This removed a majority of the dogbone slop, but didn't cause any binding and also prevented the bones from popping out.

    Alright i was bashing today and for some reason the car wouldnt roll forward when i gave it throttle. So i turned it off and checked it at my work table to see that the servo wasnt working and was frozen. Luckily it wasnt at full throttle when it froze or i would of had some major damage. I called hpi and they are sending me a free replacement. Anyone had any problems with there stock servo going out??

    RE: OFFICIAL RS4 RTR 3 thread!!!!!!!Also type SS and others

    Alright guys im waiting for my throttle servo to come in and had a couple questions.  Ive never installed a servo before so i was wondering how to install it to make it perfect? I dunno what to do? How to install where the servo is striaght? Meaning that it wont have the carb open when i install it so it does have a perfect idle. Basically i thought about turning on the reicever and controller and making that the install point where the carb has enough opening so it will idle good. You guys get it??

    I am looking for a different pipe for my RS4.

    I am running an OS18 CV-RX with a Vantage pipe now. What is another pipe that will perform nicely with the OS engine?

    I used the carbon fiber vintage pipe before and I didn't like it. Now I use O.S pipe on my 18tz.

    Carboy, do you have a link to the OS pipe?

    Jacked, i had the THS pipe in my MT2 and i didnt really like it. The stinger is kind of small and i think that restricts air flow and power.

    Any other suggestions? How is the HPI pipe?
