I noticed the BMW has the normal wheel nuts instead of the screw mount that is standard on the CR. Does anyone know if there is a conversion available to make the normal CR use the wheel nuts instead of the screw?

You could take an aluminum wheel axle and re-thread the 3mm hole to 4mm and insert the appropriate length stud. May be more trouble than its worth.

M1 should be released in 190mm or 200mm, it's too big for M chassis. It will look really strange if it was only as wide as a 2002...

the beamer is NOT, and I repeat, NOT on a Cup racer chassis..

the Beamer is release for 190mm/200mm TC chassis, not the Mini chassis

sorry, dude, but posts all around yours said the beamer isn't out for the Cup Racer..the only beamer out for the cup racer is the 2002 - and that ain't no 2002

Makes sense.. those wheels are too big for a CR.

Did HPI say how we are supposed to be able to buy it? No one have them listed on their online sites and if they aren't listed on HPI's site you can't buy from there either.

My bad!

I know there is a 190/200mm version coming (anxiously awaiting) but given the Cup racers in the background, I sorta got excited that it might also get shrunk for the cup racer!


So Andy, care to sneak me some pics of the AE86 coupe?

Good Question!
No, they didn't tell me how to buy them. I was just going to order them from my local Hobbytown USA.

Some questions...about to buy a Cup Racer but:

1) Is the difference between the 4 kits just the body shells and wheels?

2) If I buy the Datsun 510, can I also get the 240 to fit without modifying anything? Do they both use the laydown shock format?

3) Lastly...WHY ARE THERE NO FENDER FLARES ON THE 240Z?! They make the Fairlady look brutally sick and mean.

Depending on which kit you get the wheelbase is either 210mm or 225mm and the width is adjustable as well. from 162mm to 188mm

My porsche kit uses the smaller wheelbase, and my drift corolla kit is the longer 225mm version.

hope that helps.

I don't use the laydown suspension on either of my cup racers. It handles better with the stand up suspension and I dont really see a difference in clearance if you use the laydown suspension.

So I'm assuming this is how you adjust the width:

Quote:
o Hub/upright inserts
o Variable wheel hex adapters (0mm & 4mm)
o Hex adapter inserts (1mm & 2mm)
o Different offset wheels (0mm, 3mm, 6mm)
And all kits should have the same parts that'd allow the same adjustments. Where did you guys purchase your CR's?

I ordered mine from Towerhobbies.com they were having a free shipping and a $30.00 coupon deal in april. No sales tax is a nice plus too.
