HPI RS4 Porsche Land Shark [READER’S RIDE]

HPI RS4 Porsche Land Shark [READER’S RIDE]

With its list of upgrades, Don Almeido’s RS4—based on the Sport 3 Flux Falken Porsche kit—is ready to take a bite out of stock touring cars. First up were HPI’s carbon fiber front and rear shock towers and center drive shaft cover. The shaft itself was replaced with an Exotek Racing aluminum unit, along with their ultra-lightweight diff gears. Don replaced all the stock plastic suspension bits with the aluminum conversion kit from Yeah Racing. To increase top end he also added HPI’s High Speed gearset. The body replicates the GT3 RSR run at Petit Le Mans, right down to the gold tooth grille. Tamiya LED head- and taillight buckets, and the lenses were sprayed yellow to replicate the GT3-class specific light color.
