Hey guys, long time reader first time poster(I think)

Took my rs4 3 Evo (T-15 engine) off the shelves and decided to do some work on it. The mods I had on it before are ofna failsafe, THS tuned pipe, adjustable turnbuckles and motorsavers air filter. 

Just received a few other mods this week and I'm in the process of installing. I got the woven graphite upper deck with 5cell Ni-MH battery pack and the GPM woven graphite brake disc. <div>
</div><div>Future mods will be:</div><div>Front and rear graphite shock towers
Threaded aluminum shocks</div><div>Aluminum Steering rack</div><div>
</div><div>I have a question though. I am doing my shopping on Amazon.com as I live in Trinidad &amp; Tobago in the Caribbean. Most of the parts that I am seeing are made by GPM racing and sold by Asiatees which is based somewhere in Japan or China (not sure) The shipping takes quite a while and costs as much as the part in some cases. Can anyone point me to a reliable source of parts such as the ones I mentioned. </div><div>
</div>

The thread isn't dead, just in 250 pages, everything has been said almost, so it has slowed down. lol

As for speed, I have seen RS4's do over 100mph.

Heat is not a problem it runs super rich, has to with all the load..
It's a pig down low but after maybe 40 feet it start rocketing off.

The only thing is I can just bash it around or the clutch will melt/wear to nothing (I use aluminum clutches too).
Can't drive around slowly or anything for any extended amount of time have to just run fast passes back and forth.
But I have other cars for that purpose

You still need to mod the chassis and get sliding engine mounts for the .21 in there.

So, this is my story, I am new to on road. I saw some really cool drifting videos(and people) doing it so I wanted to try if I could get a car for under 150, so luckily I came by one on ebay. It is a HPI Rs4-2(got it for a little under 140) RTR. It comes with a .16 engine, and from what I read stock it should come with a .15, so could someone tell me what engine this is?What parts should i get/use for it?Could you please help with links? I know parts are rare as they are discontinued. Can I use RS4-3 parts? Other then the shafts and stuff. What other upgrades do you recommend RS4 users?I also heard you can change belt pullies on the RS4-2? What will this do?(Never had a belt driven car) Sorry for all the questions I am a newbie to on road and just want to get it done right the first time. Also last question, I have never been a good painter, so does anyone on the forum paint/shell bodies? I maybe in the market for an Evo 5/6(preferably) or even 8/9 body soon(painted white, with possible fiber hood 200mm) Thanks for all the help. PS these are the only pics I have, still waiting on it in the mail. Haha, i am just to excited.

I couldnt really tell what engine it is by these pictures but once you get it can you post some pictures of the side view so we can see it. Also ive been in this hobby a long time and never really heard of a .16 size engine, usless its a off brand and there coping one of the big guy.

I found out it was a VX .16. If you dont mind would you mind taking a look over my other thread and possibly help answer some of my questions? Thanks

Sup guys
Well I have been a long time lurker of this thread and might have posted a few times here and there. Was doing some hobby room cleaning and realized I am up to almost 12 Hpi Rs4 3's at this point. I have 2 almost complete cars but I need a few more odds and ends. I think I am going to convert one over to with a .21 and the other I think I am going to drop one of the OS 26c's I have into.. I also have almost 8 Hpi R40's that I need to do something with.. DANG I just don't know how I went from 1 or 2 to all that I have now.. I guess I went a bit crazy with the shopping!! LOL
Well I am going to do some reading through older threads and figure out exactly what all I need to do to the chassis to get a .21 to fit and I am sure i'll need some help figuring out how to drop that OS 26c 4 stroke in there too!
