I think this is a really nice looking car. I know that its just one color and trimmed with decals, but its really clean. The wheels look nice, and the driver was really well done.

Did someone do a burnout on your rear quarterpanel.

I know the cup racer is an M-sized chassis, that's why I'm confused too, because I can clearly see the cup racer motor mount through the windows, plus the cup racer is the only car I know of to use a screw instead of a nut to hold the wheels on.
Maybe he's just playing a trick on us and the back wheels are just free standing in the rear arches, tricky tricky. Either way I'm just curious that's all.

The HPI E10 also uses a screw to attach the wheels to the axles.

I did indeed use my Cup Racer, I have a few custom chassis for it that extend it to a sedan or a savage W/B for car show bodies.

I was convinced that it had to be something else. That is cool that you can make your cup racer into a full sized TC but why would you want to? There are full sized TC's everywhere for likely less money than a custom chassis for your CR. The car is beautiful anyway.

yeah, was my first time there and i probably should have done something to my car's setting - had the same settings on the chassis i used at home on asphalt it was good and i was comfortable with it, probably could have been better if i messed with it a bit

Default J71 paint jobs

Hi all you awesome painters. Hack here looking for a fairly simple but otherwise totally cool paint scheme for my new J71 I just picked up

Now I am Canadian so I would rather stay away from the red/white/blue theme that it seems everyone is using

Thanks a bunch

One color jobs dont make you as sick when you crunch them. The more time you put in, the more nausea when you take that first lick.
