    A lot might be moving on, but a few, like me are getting back to the hobby after many years.

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

    Its about every thread on rcu anymore is quite dead. A stragler hear and there but it almost seems the overall hobby is dieing out. The tracks are closing the doors not just for the winter and there is more train and helicopter than anything in the hobby shop. I can't even go and get a matching front and rear set of rims for a st let alone any wheels for a car. Its getting pretty sad and I just don't understand how people can put so much time and money into this then walk away.

    In reality this is chump change compared to actually building a real race car. I have seen a lot of peoe jump onto the hobby cus they see my car and think its a cool hobby, but a month after they have purchased their toy they are trying to sell it. But it's not people like this here who are dropping the hobby, it's people who have been into it for years.

    Its mostly just a certain class of people that stay a die hard I guess. I got a quad that's done from the ground up to race but got hurt before it got finished. Its done now and looks nice going around the yard giving the kids scare rides. And also in to works of restoring a 88 Monte SS with a 406 and have a 84 Bonneville sleeper as a daily driver.

    I have front arms on all four corners of my RS4, makes it a bit longer and also needed some exhaust header clearance with the big block in there.
    I'll post some pics later.

    Here are a pair of front arms fitted to the rear ( i had to modify them with a dremel to fit).

    If I didn't do this my exhaust manifold would rub the rear tire with the big block engine in there and my very high gearing.
    So the wheelbase is just a tad longer than the standard RS4-3, this is my 100mph car

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

    I've aways wanted an Nitro RC car. Looked back into it in 06/07 - totally forgot about till Nov. 12' when my nephews got their cars. 

    So... HPI's last release of new kits were in 2007 (18ss+ and the Evo+). I really like the idea of building a car -  but they discontinued the last kit, 18ss+ in 2008.

    It seems as if they've been on a hiatus for over 5 years already on releasing a new nitro touring kit. Does anyone know if they would be possibly releasing new nitro kits in 2013? It would be great to build - instead of buying a RTR kit that was released 5 years ago.

    And if possibly - just with a little bit of hope - do you think they're are still new 18ss+ floating around from legit hobby stores online?

    Thanks!

    Thanks Car-Tune,
    Yea - I seen the new Hot Bodies R10 kit car, but I don't think it includes an engine or exhaust. I guess with Hot Bodies joining w/ HPI, do you think they will release new unassembled kits under HPI?
    Hopefully they're working on a new RS4 model. That would be awesome.
