I have been able to find a couple of the Porsche bodies that I am planning to paint in the Martiini scheme as well as in a 73 Carrera factory color. Please post pics of your build as I will do likewise.

Hello All,
I will contact the machinist guy for a quote to produce (7) of these front differential drive cups. Once I get a price, I will provide everyone with Paypal payment information so the part will come directly from the UK. He does have a website where he has machined quite a few of the critical drive parts for the Cup Racer so you may know of this guy already. So if you decide to be committed to this part, please pay immediately so that the other participants of this group buy don't get screwed. I understand there is a relatively cheap fix for the weak plastic pins that shear off but if there is a more eloquent and permanent fix, I'd rather go that route, and of course, if the price is right. Ok, please stay tuned.

Thank you Jacob

Alright guys. I've decided that I've given the Cup Racer enough love and decided to move on.
If anyone is interested in a good condition car with all the original extra parts, box, manual, and a set of drift wheels PM me. I'm going to work on getting some good pics of it later to post up in the FS forum.

Thought I'd share while she has yet to touch the floor and terrorize the track.

So getting ready to build the cup racer. What would be the best brushless motor I should get without breaking anything. Like the diff shaft especially.

Thanks

I was thinking something in the 17.5T to 25.5T motor/esc combo from either Speed Passion, Novak, or Viper. I'm open to recommendations as I begin my build this week. I already have a couple of Savox 1268MG servos that I can either use one or sell on eBay. I'm not sure if these high voltage servos are a problem to use in the CR.

I am happy with the Novak edge 2s / 17.5T combo. My car rips the pavement up.

Your front differential cup is holding up well with that 17.5t??? I'm actually thinking of going 25.5t ballistic.
