I used to run at Hobbytown San Marcos in the lot years ago and may need to bring my cup racer out there! I built it cuz I loved the 510 body and wanted to build a kit but have not driven it much.Is that Hobbytown corona? And how often do they race,what size motor are you guys running?Great vid! Thanx!

Grid up for fun. That explains why some were going offroading on the last turn before the back straight.

Yes HT corona. They race once a month, every third Sunday. Good times- bring the family and race!

Does anyone have a good drift/ parking lot setup? Preferably with lay-down shocks.

Mike

Looking good out there. The red car was the Xray right?

Were you running the ABC tyres?

So im kind of confused. What kind and size of aftermarket bodies (tamiya/abc) and tires will work on the cup racer? Is it the "m" chassis?

You can run any M-chassis wheel by ABC, Tamiya, Sweep etc. The kit comes with 2 spacers that go underneath the front and rear gear box. If you run these, you don't need to run the spacers. If you run the cup racer wheels, you're supposed to run these spacers.

At the moment, I'm running ABC tyres on the Tamiya 50569 rims. You can also buy premounted sweeps.
