There are several variations to the silver can and if your club doesn't know about it like mine, there will be some conflict among the racers. People will try anything that will give them an advantage. For example, who would pay $50 for a "silver" can(seemingly classified as)? Or buy 10 silver cans and dyno each of them to get the "best" one? Well, whatever that makes you happy. But the best is when those guys lose to a slower "normal" silver can... their expression at the end, priceless.

You can buy speed but fast into the first wall doesnt get a win does it? Granted you need good equipment to win, but it seems like a really good driver can spank a club using old stuff.

Default Part 85277 toe angle insert problem

When I tried to install the #85277 toe angle adjustment inserts into the rear hub carriers, they're too big to fit so I asked a friend of mine to call HPI Japan ( I bought mine overseas in 03/09). They told my friend "we are aware of the problem, please cut them to fit in there carefully and don't hurt yourself."

Besides the toe angle insrt problem, I have to say that the Cup Racer brought back my passion of R/C cars!

Default Cup Racer

At my course, we run a mini class, most are running the ABC chassis. I wanted to be a little different and decided on the HPI. With that said the car handles very well, no complaints. My only complaint is how noisy the car is compared to the others, its kinda embarrassing. I have messed with the ring and pinion, it help a little but the main noise is coming from the diffs. I race with a couple of guys that work for HPI in Socal and they said it normal. Oh well I guess I'll get use to the noise.
