After owning my HPI Cup Racer for about a year and a half, I FINALLY painted the body last weekend. First RC body that I painted, I rushed it a bit and some of the paint bled and smudged, but I've ordered another body that will be my show body.
Will post pics soon.
You can redo the paint by removing the paint with dot 4 brake fluid
I just ran my car for the first real run outside, and I can already see how the tires will wear away quickly. I only have about 10 minutes of run time so far. I need lots more practice too. lol
I had to pick up a new radio and receiver, the old borrowed ones seem have an issue, either with interferance, or just not reliable connection between them. I picked up a Spektrum DX2E, cheapest i could find and do the job. College student, so I have to save as much as I can.
The old 20T brushed motor is quick enough for me for now. haha
