Well I guess let's just say it started out as your old car.i replaced certain things on it that I had new because I restore these cars and wanted that one shelf queen car. The chassis is from Wolfpack radicals it was his SUPER chassis conversion...but only half of it I didnt have the rest of the conversion.

Amazing work! I just can’t believe that was the same car... It looks great. Now I’m wondering what body are you going to use?

I'm going to use the Lamborghini body I got from you because it's in excellent shape!... I have 1 BMW LMR body I bought from team blue groove that is my beater body ..since the Lamborghini body is original I dont want to ruin it...if anyone has some spare parts laying around I would be interested..looking for a front bumper,lower spring cup for the shocks. The "swivel ball" that sits in side at the end of the shock. 2 speed parts.

Default Hello

Hello all,
Being locked down at home has gotten me digging through the garage. I pulled out my old RS4 Racer and Super Nitro racer. All Aluminum upgrades. 2 speed transmissions. Nova rossi C12 engines. I want to get them back on the road.

Hello again all, we hope everyone is in good health! I wanted to share our updates. Wife tried to recreate her Suzuka Blue 02 S2000 with one of our HPI S2000 shells (190mm-AP1) our HPI S2000 body (200mm-AP2) is to recreate my old Grand Prix White 05 S2000. She was not able to recreate that color but to me it came out looking more like the Apexi Blue 08 S2000 CR color? Guess we should of talked to someone who really knows paint. Definitely gonna need to find someone who really knows how to paint these bodyís to get correct replicas next time. Hopefully someone could guide us in the right direction for the next one?
Here goes a few updated photos

And yes, still no pictures of the RSX type s 😔
Ps for the people who have cars that rarely get driven and are garaged! Check out Hagerty Insurance! We just found out it’s a better option!!!

I forgot all about this thread till you commented today and I got the notification.

I guess to burn this post I will post my Savages, I only have 2 but they are probably the ones I am most sentimental about for various reasons, one reason is the Savage 21 is what brought me back to the hobby in 2003. I had some Tyco Bandits, and Tamiya's as a kid, a Blackfoot around 87'-88', a TA-01 Skyline in 92', and a used Losi Jr-T in the mid 90's. In 2003 a buddy always wanted a R/C and talked me back into the hobby, he bought a T-Maxx, and I bought the Savage 21.

The Savage 21 has most of the mods/fix's of the time. The four spider gear diffs, Kyosho diff cups, throttle/brake linkage mod, black springs, alloy brake hub and carbon disk (then the dual disk HPI kit), Orion Wasp .26, that thing was my baby so any updated HPI parts that came along it got them. Its a bit of a time capsule, even a set of Losi Zonbie Maxx tires.

My other Savage is a bit of a kit bash, I started with the Savage Flux Conversion (102534) then pieced it together from eBay and my local shop. It was after the Super 5SC-Flux so I used the radio box from that and the parts for the center diff. The conversion had most of the HD parts for the drivetrain, so I bought all the internal trans parts, anything that said HD or lightweight, gears, shafts, I just went through and completely pimped it for speed and durability. No alloy bling, not my thing, and not usually the best idea.

So I guess technically my Savage XS is also a Savage, I have had that little thing since they launched and it has been consistently one of my favorite bashers, other than having to replace the factory Deans connector because of a random power loss issue, it has been a tank. Now that HPI parts are starting to trickle back in I actually bought some hop-ups for the thing.

That should do for this round, I will try not to forget this time so I can keep working on my post count.
