Tried that setup on a loose parking lot, doesn't work quite so well. Probably would need to be softer.

..tight but most likely not...Porsche is really particular about seeing the entire package upon completion before agreeing to let us release them.

Default Porsche Cup Racer advice

Hi guys,

New to the forum...

I'm totally stoked and waiting in line to buy a CUP Racer Porsche RSR. Fantastic job HPI racing.

Here is a pic of my own real life size P-car.

Couple of questions:

- I'm just going to be running my cup racer as a basher so should I be looking at an expensive brushless set up or should I stick to a fairly stock brushed motor?

- Also, what the deal on the current battery technology. I'm currently running the old school 7.2 batteries in my Tamiya F40 and TT01. What will I get with some of the new technologies?

what about some "newer style bodies"

Like the NSX, 350Z, S2000? etc..

Don't get me wrong, I love the Vintage, BUT.....

We're working on some new stuff but we'd like to keep the proportions correct (ie. the original design of the "mini" platform was to accommodate shorter wheelbase "compact" full sized cars). So a Z for instance would be a tad off and would look like a "toon" Z Where as say an E30 or Elise or a TC (ie. compact looking real life cars) would fit better.

Cool ride...

Stick with a stock setup, if you go with brushless I'd recommend not going above a 17.5 (stock system) and would encourage looking at 21.5. We are running ours with a stock "silver can" Tamiya motor with LiPo 7.4v 2s batteries and it's not slow at all! And this is on pretty high bite track...so you figure on a loose parking lot just for bashing you'd probably not want to go overboard with the power. My analogy to those wanting to put super hot motors on Cup Racers is ... if you had a real 510 and put a V8 in it, it would would probably be a tad squirly ...

Batteries..go with LiPo..basically LiPo packs (with an appropriate LiPo charger) would provide the most fun and less hassle...it you just run...then recharge... (2 things...def get a LiPo capable charger DO NOT CHARGE YOUR LIPO WITH A NON LIPO CAPABLE CHARGER OR IN ANY OTHER SETTING OTHER THAN LIPO...yes...personal experience here , never discharge a Lipo pack....)

Cheers... AndyH
