Haha sorry for the bunch of questions. But can anyone put a link to some recommended after market tires for the Cup Racer. I will be running on Carpet. I plan to run the stockers for a bit. But once I need new ones I plan to upgrade if possible.

Thanks again

Other then the body. What is the difference between the different Cup Racer kits?
I believe only difference in the kits is:

Wheels, tires and body. ...thus you can purchase any combo of bodies and wheels/tires to make your Datsun a Porsche, or BMW, etc... ...there are even other bodies that fit our CR's, -and I've seen some nice wheels as well on eBay that will fit.


...to the guy who is modeling his CR'r after his 1:1 510, -nice job, can't wait to see it. I am doing the same w/ the Porsche kit. I have a 1:1 '77 930 Turbo which looks very similar to a '73 RSR. (My 930 also has a little over 400hp in a car that only weighs 2400lbs. ...it's a rocket)! Will post photos in the coming days (as I literally just painted my CR'r body today and hope to have it all dialed in later this evening) -thus completing the build!

er1c I look foward to seeing them both together once you have it painted.I like the idea of a scale looking rc that performs and it's a bonus to have a car thats a 1to1 to match. My 510 will weigh around 2550lbs so it should haul aswell.

...yeah, cars are a lot of fun. I've been into 1:1 cars since I was a kid (now 40). ...a buddy got me into R/C cars and now I am hooked. Nice thing is, a complete sweet a** R/C car costs less than most parts for my 1:1 car. ...I spent a small fortune on my Porsche.

anyway, photos coming soon. I spent tonight tweaking the body to get it fitting correctly to the chasis. A little more work is needed (need to trim around the wheel wells slightly and adjust the body posts again to get it just right. Then I can put all the stickers on the car. I took all the masking off and am loving the way the paint turned out.

-Can't wait to see your 510 CR'er w/ photo of your 1:1 510! -I plan on getting that money shot either tomorrow or Tue ...as long as it doesn't rain.

Default a few questions

I just got my cup racer tonight and was checking my wheel options and was hoping to put larger to make it like my 1to1 that has 17" wheels so I havew some that are 68mm total which look cool but rub when turning in the front with the 0 offset hexes on it and I think there a 0 offset wheel so what are my options? Machine down the hex a mm or so or trim the body a bunch (bad option or find a little smaller wheel and tire option? Stock is 60 mm and mine are 68mm so is there a good 64 or 65mm wheel and tire combo? Maybe a really low profile tire for a touring/drift wheel? By the way I searched thru about 80 out of the 130 pages on here with out a ton of specifics on this so didn't want you to think I didn't try. This is going to be used for fun runs and drifting and I'm using a gtb with a tekin 13.5 . The drift tires won't be a problem since I can make them low pros easy enough.

Just trying to make the playing field as similar as possible. I also would like to know what other tire and rim options are working for this car. I read that lots are using the RS4 wheels and tires but they look a bit out of place.

I haven't actually tried these,
but have had my eye on them,

http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...&I=LXM987&P=OW

Outer diameter is 64mm, ...you'lll have to get wheels to mount on them (as I don't think our CR stock wheels will work). There may be other options in this outer diameter size ...i'd suggest searching Towerhobbies (as they are the only co' that seems to list accurate sizes and detailed information for their products).

Is there a performance difference in having the servo in the stand-up opposed to lay-down position?

It seems to me having the servo standing will keep the steering rod level

Laydown servo lowers the C of G.

Default thanks

Thanks for the input on tires sizes and about tower ahving overall size dimensions. More options would be great and I hate the fact most don't offer overall sizes.

...my guess is that there are a lot of options for you, problem is that hardly anyone lists out all the dimensions of the tires. Usually just the inside dimensions at best.

I know TowerHobbies is a HUGE retailer and doesn't also have the most unique items, but I must say they do at least give the best detailed information on every product they sell.
