Just be careful where you try and order these parts from...Hobby Etc is selling them at HR's list price, Liquid RC is selling them at a mark-up - which is a load of BS considering the manufacturer has the lower price

Here's something that's missing in the manual/setup hints..

what is the caster when the clips are installed in the 'factory' position??

I noticed on MikeR's car, he has the clips in the rear, which (based on the r40 and other cars that uses clips) should reduce the front caster - but by how much??

Andy - any ideas on the caster settings?

That's something that could have been improved in the manual - setup hints/ideas/etc

nice looking stuff
Those parts are reasonably priced for sale, but you still get some discount at rchub.com when you purchase the entire motor mount set.

did some research at my crawler forum and found some bad reviews bout fitment and tolerance issues, ill prolly wait till 3racing comes out with their hop-ups.

honestly wasn't complaining that much - just thought a kit might have got some kind of 'discount' over purchasing the individual pieces

and they are tempting - but gonna hold off until I run my car, at least once

bodywerx: Thanks. It is tamiya copper.

Anyone have a good setup for these cars yet? Gearing? Just ran mine outside and it handles just like a tamiya mini. ok but not what i expected. Went from a 17.5 to a 10.5 and those handling flaws were magnified. Has anyone found Hara's setup from his cup racer. I was planing to hit the track this weekend but not like this.

Ummmmm...... Both, and then ad the ABC Celica and Sunny Coupe.


ABC 510

And dont forget ABC has their own 280z shell also. Im sure HPI is in high gear getting some shells together for this ride.

My sentiments exactly. I need to get this thing to handle much better. I'm putting on a 27t brushed motor this weekend to see how it works out with the harder of the kit springs up front (laydown) and a combo of Tamiya Super Grips and Type A mini tires. I really would hope HPI could post Hara's setup on their website.

Handle like a mini? My M03 can keep up with TCs on the infield. The only problem is that it likes to traction roll from the high CG. This new HPI should get rid of that. Just need to work with it.
