Love it, but when I do mine the mirrors will be black and in the American position.

Yes, complete PRO4 front spool and bevel gear for the front. It is a few mm narrower than the Cup Racer diff so the dog bones aren't as deep into it but because the spool is metal it seems to have plenty to hold the dog bones in. For the rear I'm using the stock diff outdrive but am using the PRO4 bevel gear. The PRO4 bevel gears are very close tolerance against the pinion gear and diff cases but I've put 3 packs through my car and it all is running very smooth, if not better each run.

Not sure what car they were for but they are 3mm and about 20mm long.
For the pins I wanted to see if I could simplify the knuckle stops that came with the car so on one side I just bolted a m3 screw into the upper arm. Seems to work ok so I went ahead and put it on both sides. Note the steering plate on the knuckles are moved to the top side and flipped over to reduce most of the bump steer the car had before. Used tamiya ball end and cup to complete it so that it didn't rub the upper arm.

Just the pro4 bevel gear. The pro 4 diff outdrives are narrower (shorter) then the stock diffs.

Default Setups

Anyone seen a setup sheet for the Cup racer?
I can't find one on the HPi website.
It would be nice to see to setup the car correctly.

Has anyone tried drifting if and how does it handles?

You run the Beetle Cup racer on a regular sized TC. You knew that right?

unless you are tying to replicate that class of 1:1 racing that's big in Europe I think they are called 'club racer' or something like that
