I have two bodies for my car painted the same. One is perfect not a scratch, the other is full of shoe goo. I use my beat up body for racing and pratice and the mint one for pictures and shelf use.

That must be pretty bad. It is not a good idea to be on the track with trucks. I pull ANY of my cars as soon as a short course truck or buggy hits the track.

..yeah i got to the track a little late and only had about 15mins til my first race. I wans't familiar w/ the track layout, ..so when I put my car on to get some practice in I was the only car out there. Then of course a couple stadium trucks got on and I figured it'd be okay. Wrong! Going forward I'll just pull my car as soon as any type of truck comes while using my CR'r

-i went through my entire car, taking much of it apart ..checked it all out (lik e I do after every hard day of racing). All was good except one wheel bearing, which may or may not have been from the trucks.

Gd'day forumites,

Here's a pic for five spoke wheel fans. They'll give any retro body a nice mod look. Only available with 0mm offset and in badass black. The HPI part # is 105123.

Cheers,
Brad

Looks great, what body are you going to put on it?

Does anyone know the part numbers for the wheels that go on the HPI Lancia Stratos HF body? They are yellow.

Thks. Mini first, then 911, and finally Stratos.

Nope. Probably sprayed yellow.

-I am guessing they are the white spokes then either sprayed or dyed ...you can dye white rims any color you want by soaking them in water w/ rit dye.

Looks pretty much OK to me but you need to tell us what motor you have in there.

..it's really hard to judge speed watching a vid- of an R/C on YouTube. The frame rate is 24fps second at best which means a lot of frames are being skipped or cut (compared to what one would view w/ their nake eye) -giving the effect of your car travelling faster than it really is in the video.

FPS =frames per second
example, your eye can view well over 100 FPS, YouTube displays at 24 FPS. Therefore it's not a true 1:1 view for us ...we'd have to view your car in real life OR have some kind of speed radar or something to tell us how fast your car is actually going. Viewing a lower frame rate actually makes your car seem faster to us because your cutting out frames of the video (or YouTube in this case).
check out this cool calculator, -it will give you some idea of how fast your car should travel ...you can probably judge whether or not it's close to the speed this calculator outputs:

i understand how fps works (took film classes in high school made a few shoryt films etc) but that video is a good representation of how fast it goes
the main reason i ask is my friend has a brushless 2wd slash on 2 s lipos that is 3 times as fast and that just seems backwards to me
