After my rebuild, I'm running 3s and a sensorless motor. And impressing anyone in the vicinity with how such a small car could be so fast.

so much fun.

$150 is a great deal, ...i have sold all my CR's. They were fun cars and pretty good for the price. In my opinion they'll still be sought after to some degree even another 10 years from now.

I found a great sensored motor for my CR. Been looking for one without a sensor sticking out of the endbell and power wires going in the wrong direction. Installation pics soon!

It's a Nano-tech 3300 mAh, 3s. I was planning to run my Traxxas VLX 3500kv system and ESC on it, but the motor is a tight fit, and the ESC is on the larger size.

3s 3300mAh LiPo

Too Much?
LOL I ended up getting that same battery when I put the 3s capable esc in my car!

I was able to find a CR with the Exotek chassis conversion (includes all the stock stuff, too). The body is pretty much done - but the pics show the vehicle to be in great shape.

Won't have it till Friday, so that kinda stinks.
But wanted to ask you guys that still have these, what Tamiya bodies work on these?? I jumped on ebay and there were some from TBG, TeamBlueGroove or something, but have never heard of them. Was hoping that a Tamiya mini body will fit.

Thanks in advance!

thanks. Yeah, I know. I like to surprise folks with 4WD Rover Mini's.

aracefan - I only run Tamiya Rover Mini bodies on my various m-chassis.

Basically you have a car that is so complicated compared to what you need to run a Tamiya mini. The Cup Racer is technically superior to any Tamiya M-Chassis.

What you get with the Cup is the flexibility to run any 210mm or 225mm wheelbase body made by HPI, Tamiya, ABC Hobby, Colt, aaand many 1/12th scale pancar bodies will fit too.

My advice is get something more exotic than a Mini Cooper because you have a more exotic chassis. HPI Lancia Stratos (which only fits on this chassis*), HPI Porsche 911, Blitz McLaren P1, Protoform PFM12, etc.

If you get bored with your CF Cup Racer, sell it to me!




*okay, technically if you have an Active Hobby A210SS / Ofna JL12e you could without any modification to the chassis.
