Has anybody used the Sweep tires and wheels with the CR? I hear the Atomic tires are great but I can't seem to find any spoked wheels for it. Our racing class is all about realism and we have to use spoked wheels.

I use ABC Hobby spoked wheels. Perfect fit with the Atomic 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.
I have been hearing allot about this turbo feature on the Tekin ESC. Can you explain how that works? I went to the site and there is no mention.

look in this thread - Tekin RS ESC sensored - its loaded with info

basically, turbo is like a configurable 2nd gear on the speedo - its not the technical explanation of the function, but you get the idea

its been available since the v180something, perfected in v199, kicked up a notched in v200, and really put a hurting on things in v203

just read the thread, its way to complicated to explain and there are guys MUCH better equiped who can explain in it in there -- and i run for tekin

Pics of my CR.




Turns out i broke the out drive in the front gearbox (owner before me appears to broke one himself). Is this a common problem? I searched for an aluminum replacement and came out with nothing.

Yes, the gearbox outdrive is a very weak point.

I bought another rear metal outdrive and fitted it on the front with the upright shocks.
Holding up fine.

I too dont understand why nobody makes an ally replacement for this part

Daniel,
Your BRE 240Z looks better with the 225mm wheelbase as opposed to the 210mm.

Final Design/production/release date are to be decided, so just enjoy things as they are now !
Thanks for the pics!

Can you ask Atsushi if HPI will be making the front drive shaft cup in metal? Everyone has broken the stock plastic ones (the 3 teeth snaps off). I can't imagine his not being metal since he is running 13.5 with a SXX

Actually after looking at your pics, it does look like his are not stock. I hope HPI releases these asap if metal.

You guessed right, it's a steel cup. It seems to be a prototype part as well.
