Hi, I got my Cup Racer kit on July 2nd. I took some pictures I thought other people might be interested in.
This is my first post on this board so I wasn't able to embed images, so I had to attach them:
cup-racer-kit.jpg - what is included in the kit
finished-levin-cup-racer.jpg - my finished Toyota Levin Cup Racer
Airtronics MX-3FG FHSS-2 Transmitter w/ Receiver (new!)
Airtronics 94102 Servo (had laying around)
Futaba MC330CR ESC (had laying around)
Trinity P2PK Pro Motor (had laying around)
DuraTrax Piranha 2000mAh NiMH Batteries (new!)
I got this kit for parking lot drifting. I was looking at the HPI E10 Drift, but also really wanted to build another kit. When I found the Cup Racer, there wasn't any other option.
I still have yet to run it (besides tormenting my animals in the house), but from what I've read on this thread, I'm guessing my P2PK Pro motor is going to be too much for the car. I have the HPI X-30 motor on order.
I'm also super interested in getting some non-drift tires just to see how the car performs. Haven't been able to find those anywhere yet either.
I'm not too sure about my servo choice. At first I was thinking I wanted one of the low profile ones to do the vertical mounting position, but then I saw Hara's setup and if he does side mount, that's more than enough for me. :P
Any advice? I'd gladly take it.
Anyway, I really enjoyed building the kit and wanted to share with the others on this board...and also say "Hi."
