That is something we have done with Tamiya minis for some time and it is a great starting point. Lipo/brushless is really big here so we also talked about single cell 17.5 or 21.5. It'll be fun to test out and see what these things will do.
Yep... The one at the Nats was nice. For those interested, I did a small write up on it. Hop on over to Big Squid and check it out...

Thanks MarkG. I haven't ran mine yet as I still need to install electronics but I expect it to be quite noisy for a shaft car.

I have seen this on the HPI Japan site but are they going to sell them to us stateside?

The 510 shell is what Im asking about. I know they are going to sell the Cup Racer over here.

Maybe one of the posts had some merit, hand out silver cans at the race, making sure everyone is on the same playing field.

You guys should read the Tamiya thread concerning the big fuss over silver cans. Parity there is not, when running silver cans

Any ways, ordered my cup racer. Hope to bring it out to BCR soon as well!

A picture with your post, when trouble shooting, will probably get more rctech help than without...

Is there something wrong with my build or is this a common observation to those who have the cup racer? Thanks.
Big Daddy Cool, which way did you put your front shocks?
