Default HPI Brake Rotors

Hey guys, i just got a cup racer. LOL 3 years later. It has the exo tech chassis, and was barely driven. I was blessed to find such a great deal! ok, i was wanting to go brushed and keep it old school. But everyone is running brushless in these things. Whats the most "fun and controlable set up" id like it a little faster than that of a silver can. I was thinking 17.5t? or is that even pushing it?

I put a 3900KV motor in mine and it is too much power for this car. I destroyed the front diff drive input cup with it. HPI actually recomended 30T brushed motors for these!! I had a Tamiya Sport tuned (black can) 27T in it and it was nice. I think a 17.5 will be fine but don't boost it!

Thumbs up CUP RACER

Hi I run a 17.5 brushless in my cup racer its a bit fast for the car. And yes you
will brake parts. I broke front drive cup first race too. I run blinkie mode. No
boost. 28t pin. Its works good for me. Good luck and happy racing.

My setup:
Aluminum body shocks (use porsche body so laydown in front)
GMP metal A-arms / hubs - nothing bent or broken yet
Exotek conversion
stock gearing
Novak Edge / Ballistic 17.5 brushless - runs cool and works great.

*To change motors i have to remove top deck due to the Novak casing...anyone in the same situation?

The Porsche bodies seem to be harder and harder to find. I tried to buy one directly from HPI online where they placed a lock on my credit card for full list plus shipping but then received an email from them stating that all transactions through HPI were cancelled with refunds, all the while Extreme RC had one that I had missed on eBay. It doesn't seem that HPI is interested in producing more of these.

I'm still looking for CR owners interested in a potential group buy of a machined metal front diff cup (Exotek) So far I have 4 of us and would need 6 more to be $$ feasible.

I've accumulated a new Levin Drift kit, Exotek CRX chassis kit, HPI brake rotors, aluminum shock bodies, metal axle cups, HPI metal front axle parts, torsion bars that I will start building in the next couple of weeks. I am thinking of getting the Speed Passion 17.5T combination, anyone here with any experience with SP?

Someone bought a set of the HPI brake calipers for under $10.00 on eBay last week!! I've been watching daily for the last five months and this was the first listing for them!
