Dont waste the money on the 3s, the car will be out of control fast. Stick with a 13.5 or 17.5 and you will be fine.

I know the 510 comes with them. Very nice body. Lots of details and chrome.

I thought J-Pap meant this one...http://www.topspeed.com/cars/toyota/...t-ar10869.html

which looks more like the old Ferraris or Jag E-type.

trying to get this from a friend of mine it has a novac 13.5 turn brushless setup in it what would be a good price?





the body would obviously need to be stripped and repainted (he used cheap auto parts store paint) but it goes pretty good on an old 7.2 ni-cad battery pack i can only imagin it on lipos

Wanted to share this CR belonging to a friend of mine. Its the 240Z done up in a "Drift missle" motif.

Upgraded with an Exotek chassis,SP GT2 ESC and a 17.5 motor.

Primarily a drift car, it performs well and looks sick.

-that would be sweet, yet it's pretty much a rip off in design of the Jaguar E type, which I'd rather see.

here are a few more car bodeis I'd love HPI to make (for the Cup Racer):

-i've been contemplating the same thing,
when you talk about the Tamiya one, are you talking about the newer MINI, not the older '60's or 70's mini? AND, does the Tamiya MINI fit our cars pretty well?

is this the MINI body your talking about?
what is the wheelbase on this?
