Yeah they look good. Was the clear Tamiya too? Was it a TS or a PS paint? Im thinking about using the spazstix chrome with a clear.

All Tamyia.

BTW, how are you guys setting up your suspension? I am having trouble with fender clearance. I adjusted more negative camber in the rear and it clears better but it seems I will also have to do it in the front.

At 0 I don't think I could run it without rubbing the fenders

I feel like I need shorter wheel spacers but am using the smallest that came with the kit.

yeah, take off the Cup Racer wheels - retain the wheel screws...
put forms on the hubs and tighen as appropriate - one foam on each hub

in all seriousness - the Cup Racer uses a 12mm hum, so ANY wheel with a 12mm hub will work...you might just need to remove the spacer/offset pieces

OK. I have not received the car yet so I do not know the mounting system. I thought I would ask as I know it mounts with screws rather than on a threaded axle so I wasn't sure if HPI had made it into a "HPI wheels only" system!

nope...think the original Xray setup (ala FK04/FK05) but when the ability to 'offset' the wheel by added little spacers to the hubs...The stock hub will give you 0 offset, then they give you 1mm/2mm spacers to move the wheels outwards

check out the manual here - http://www.hpiracing.com/manuals/pdf/100594.pdf - you can see how it all works

How does the Tamiya RS540 Sport Tuned Motor 49/62 (black can) work in it?
It seems to have 4500+ RPMs than the silver can. Is it too much for it?

I have that motor and I think it's awesome. Just the right amount of speed for the car size/weight.
