Well, Im not a serious racer obviously, I just run with my friend at a local track.He has a TA-05 and we actually bought the same motor.Turning down the power is an option.

My questions are;
1) My friend was told that his TA-05 would have no problems handling this motor.Why is the CR unable to handle this motor?...difficult to set-up to have decent control?..... or broken parts due to the power?

2) Has there been an aluminium replacement part for the shaft cup yet?
(85281-10)

3) Ive bought some Sweep wheels,inserts and tyres.Ive been told that I should have the softer 40 tyres on the rear and harder 33 tyres on the front.Im using the car in Bangkok,Thailand so heat is a factor.Any opinions?

Thanks again,
Steve.
Well, the TA05 is in a class of it's own- it's bigger, more stable & belt driven so an 8.5 would be more driveable in it.
Your tires are rated in celsius (40c and 33c) so the 33's are actually softer and should be used in the rear if you want more rear traction, unless they overheat which will then get loose after a few laps

David...Thanks mate, may do that mod.

Mike....Understood, thanks.
Im using Sweep wheels, tyres and inserts.Do all tyres use the same formula? ie 33c soft and 40c hard?

Does anyone have a problem with the motor side rear dogbone allowing the axle cup to move back into the hub carrier?The other 3 are ok.

Cheers,
Steve.

Thanks in advance.

Hi All,

Ive decided to get the driveshaft cup (85281-10) made in aluminium here in Thailand. As soon as I get more information I will let you guys know.Its Thai New Year here so give me a week or so.

I really want to get my CR as strong as possible before I break anything else and it ends up being put on the shelf whilst waiting for spare parts.

Cheers,
Steve.

Default Help a brutha out

I'm planning on getting a cup racer. What electronics should I put in it? Radio? Servo? Li-Po? Motor? Im just getting it for fun, no racing, all I know is I want it brushless. I have a near by carpet track I have access to as well as smooth parking lots. I want the car set up for drifting but i also want it quick in the straight aways. I heard of a speed control that aids with drifting, i think it was programmable?? Im looking for as much info as you guys can throw at me, wanna do it right the first time. Thanks

Default Some of my Cup Racer bodies

What do you get when you get some 1/16 Slash wheels & tires and place them on the Cup racer?

Oh yea that also includes a metal brush guard??




Oh, let's not forget about the HPI Wheely King truck body...



well I can't vouch for the clearance but with some tweaking, it might work.

SO anything that will fit on the Wheely King, will fit on the Cup Racer chassis.



Here is a couple more body choices:



This is an Tamiya M04M Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint GTA body.





This is a remake of the HPI 63 VW bus by KamTec over in England



Because I had it mounted on the Midnight Pumpkin befor I tried to mount it onto the Cup racer, I chose to make this mounting plate so I wouldn't have to put any more holes in the body.

Amazing that there is still no aftermarket replacement for the front drive cup

A couple months ago one of my buddies that works in a machine shop made me a replacement one from 7075-T651 Aluminum. It's holding up extremely well. I figured by now these things would be all over the market.

Tell your buddy to start making them to sell on here. Find out how many people want one so you know if it would be worth it or not, I will buy one for $20 at most.

I am really frustrated the Fuchs Wheels for the Porsche are not available yet. It doesn't make sense to buy the Porsche body if you can't get the correct wheels.

What wheelbase do you have the CR at for the Wheely King body?

Has anyone tried a Traxxas 1/16 body yet?

This opens so many options.

I'm thinking of just getting the Porsche kit and selling the roller off minus body and wheels. May even be cheaper in the long run depending how much I could get for the roller.
