My brother recently moved out of the family home and left me his RS4 RTR 3 EVO BMW (I think thats it's right name) Nitro car. He said I will need to get a new exhaust system and he thinks the gears need replaced.  Can you give me any advice on what to do and where I can buy the parts for the car? James.

Go to the HPI Europe Website and download the user manual, then just search yellow pages for a model shop nearby, and go in and order the parts.
