It doesn't seem like there's enough demand to have the drive cups machined for us.

So finally started my build... planned on doing a build thread but got too excited and didnt get to take as much pix while doing the build.

Very happy with the cup racer. i picked up a 25.5t Club spec Novak. Sent it back and decided to go with NOVAK Ballistic so i can control the RPM and be able to tuck the wires a lot cleaner.

took a while to source all the part since i wanted all HPI carbon Upgrades and all the HPI options.

Heres how she looks currently and will post more when i get the motor and esc installed

Great looking build!! What method did you use to remove the orange anodize? I'm just getting done finishing the edges of the Exotek CRX chassis components. I'm painting one body in the box art silver/fluorescent orange scheme and a second body that I manage to find in one of the stock RS colors.

oic, yeah used a grill cleaner to get the anodized off. I have 3 porsche RSR bodies that i found from a local hobby shop when i was in Colorado. they had 3 that has been sitting on the shelf. they were on sale for 20$ each.
