ive owned many RC cars in my day. is this a HPI electric kit?
i tend to stay more with the nitro trucks. my dad had a HPI nitro RS4 that could do 65 mph easy. all wheel drive system was awesome in that thing.

That is pretty sick looking, I love it. Ive always wanted to build one of those, however they cost so damn much!!!

this one is a tamita TT01 kit, they don't cost that much, but it's just basic stuff.

the body is also a tamiya body, it's no longer in production, but i saw some on ebay UK.

i can't wait until i got my avant body.

that's how mine used to look like.

it's nearly impossible to find a clear original saloon body. HPI used to make them too but not anymore.

hey whipped, on your old b5, did you relocate the s4 bar in the girll lower? If that is what you did, the stock a4 fogs fit right?

yes those...i shouldn't have said they don't make them anymore...they're made by HPI europe, HPI usa doesn't have them.
should be an easy score for you.
i honestly think the tamiya body has more better details on the body, and this one just seemed a little out of proportion.

but however, i just ordered my avant body, shopping for it was a PITA because most european HPI dealers just won't ship to the US, or my credit card was not acceptable.
but hopefully i'll have mine comin in soon.

yes that's what i did, i moved the center bar of the grill inserts.
and i don't see why stock fogs won't fit, BUT i wouldn't know because i have PIAAs fogs.

You only need to ask me and if they are in London I could collect and send it on.

i thought about that, but i got mine from benracing.co.uk. and they said that it's been shipped out.
so maybe for future reference...[up]

I would sort the fogs out before you paint it if I was you.

LOL, that's badass. I'd love to get into that hobby but my real car takes all my money. And whatever the car doesn't get, the wife/house/life gets the rest (the majority).

This is my RC A4 STW B5 quattro, original Tamiya Kit (TA03F 4WD Chassis).
Fast engine, different gear, made for drifting..

Bought me an extra body ($20) and a set of black wheels..
Want to make it look like my own car..
