Anyone know where I can get some of the hot racing axle pieces? They seem to be out of stock everywhere.

Default Hot Racing

makes or made them, I had purchased mine from hobbyetc. I've inquired as to whether they are back order or out of stock permanently.

Yeah, that was kind of my question. If they aren't made anymore I'm probably going to sell my CR. If they are still made I'll get a set and a CRX chassis.

Give it a week and check ebay again. I am sure they will turn up again.

I just raced mine for the first time yesterday at SoCal-RC.com's on road race. I use the 60mm HPI S compound slicks and I had a hard time hooking up. I came in third. The top two guys were running 54mm tires and they were HOOKED UP. The winner of the Mini class is a good friend of mine and we have exactly the same shock setup (wt, spring) and those tires make all the difference in the world. He's also running the 210mm as opposed to my 225mm wheelbase. I guess that's the direction I'll be heading in soon!

Hi guys!

I have a trouble with the driveshaft cups when fastening the wheel screw. The pins between the driveshafts and the cups is being broken every time I try to mount the wheels. The pins just savage the plastics.

Does anyone have any idea what to do?

You could put a drop or two of CA glue in the hole before you screw the wheel back on for a temporary but still relatively strong bond. However, it just might come out at the worst possible time.

You could purchase another plastic piece from HPI but you may end up with the same problems. Hot Racing makes aluminum axle cups but those are pretty hard to find. eBay has a few every now and then.

If you decide to get another plastic axle cup from HPI, be very careful not to overtighten the screws into the plastic. I haven't had an issue with the plastic axle cups yet (knock on wood).

I have my Porsche together but haven't found anyone racing them around here yet. I would like some input from the guys who have a class of them racing; what size motor do you run? Any limit on speed controls or anything? I would like to get a class started in my area and was thinking about using the new 25.5 brushless system from Novak for the VTA Racers.

Hobby Etc. let me know the aluminum cups were available again. Unfortunately I'm knee deep in a heli project right now. Hopefully there's still a few of them later this week.

I've got a Novak 8.5 turn in mine and it can handle it. It just becomes a "missile" a certain point.
