my brother in law has the HPI RS4 racer that he has been slowly restoring/upgrading, at this point he is stuck with a bad tank though.
he is rebuilding the 15FE engine, to be original but has a Thunder Tiger .12 evo in for general bashing around.
he did upgrade to the Robinson Racing Products disk brake. has not yet run it with that yet as thats when he discovered the issue with the tank.
Those tensions (A960, and A907) are getting really really hard to find nowadays, as well as spurs for the single speeds.

The RS4 racers had all the upgrades correct? As for A960 & A907, Iím hoping I can find new original bearings for them. If not Iím going to have to take the out and find a set that is the same size and just use them.
Ps would love to see pics of your brothers Racer. What body is he using?

D3MON 02-17-2020 10:28 PM

had most of them yes, did not come with the A907 and A960, and the rear upper chassis plate was plastic from what i can tell, he purchased it off of ebay. Initially his came with some sort of older BMW M3 body, but had an HPI dodge charger body from a previous venture. iirc it was black with green chameleon accents, but will have to doouble check that next time i see it, and will take pictures then.
at the moment we have about 6" of snow so probably wont be getting ran any time soon.
