HPI Nitro RS4 Racer I built in around 1999 as a 12 year old.

My second proper RC after a Tamiya 911 GT1. It's in good shape but haven't run it in a long time after the pull start broke.

Used to run a blue Corvette body but fitted the Pantera after I recovered it from the attic 5 years ago. Chassis needs a good clean at some point. Some Tamiya parts, but not many!

Specs:

- OS Max CV15 nitro engine
- HPI Pantera shell
- Tamiya Lancia 037 mirrors and wipers
- Tamiya 3 piece wheels and Tamiya slick tyres
- Pretty much all-original otherwise!
- Acoms electronics (pulled from the Porsche).

Love a Pantera and feel this is one of the best looking RC bodies. HPI seemed to nail the proportions on this one unlike some of their others!

very nicely done! Excellent rim choice too, the wheel stance is just right.

Thank you all, luckily the impracticalities of nitro kept this one alive (I barely ran it)

Wish I could give it some more period correct rims with fatter meat but these are the closest to what I had in mind available. They fit beautifully with some camber dialled in.
