Picked up my RSR CR last week, Also got the brake disk kit, alu. steering turn buckle, sway bar kit, drift tires.

This Thing is a BLAST!!!

Have a Tekin 13.5 RS combo in it, on a 2s lipo, and this lil sucker gets it.
When the turbo boost hits, its gone.

Altho, the Alu. axle cups from HR are a must.

Ill post better pics up tomorrow.

Hi guys,

Just few words to show you that HPI is working on a potential evolution of the current Cup Racer. I prefer to be clear once again: these pictures below only show a car project only (Atsushi Hara prototype actually), not a production kit.
Final Design/production/release date are to be decided, so just enjoy things as they are now !

I always wondered when somebody would start making carbon/graphite knuckles. Looks nice, I guess we'll have to say bye bye to inboard shocks. Thanks for sharing.

they are worth the $$ - i didn't break one on my CR (even with a 17.5 and a 27T), but just the simple fact they get rid of that lock nut makes them WORDS nicer in my book
