Cup Racer wheels are actually a larger diameter than the stock "mini" wheels/tires. You need to use the Cup Racer wheels/tires with a Cup Racer body.

If you use a Cup Racer body with standard "mini" wheels/tires, the wheels/tires will look undersized.

It is not recommended to use the Cup Racer wheels/tires on "regular" (Minis other than Cup Racer) bodies as the tires will most likely fit really tight on the body and may rub the inside panels.

I can't tell you how ecstatic I am that they chose the Carrera 2.7 RSR I think it's the first 911 to get the "widebody" treatment. Since they've gone through the trouble to make the correct "Fuchs" style wheel, I predict we can expect more Porsches! If not more 911's then how about a 916?

BTW I just saw the Exotek CRX chassis featured on the HPI website. Is there a marketing agreement between the two companies? It's just great to see HPI helping the smaller aftermarket companies.

Well, since you are posting some of the "compact" bodies you'd like to see, I thought I would drop in my $0.02...

VW Golf MK2 ( so I can drop the body over some ridiculously oversized rims )
Ford RS200
Subaru Impreza 22B STi
Alfa Romeo 155 V6 TI
Ford Cortina Mark III or Mark IV
Alpine A110
Fiat 131 Abarth Series 1
Ford Escort Mark II RS1800
Audi Sport Quattro
Ford Focus RS WRC 08

Those are just some of my favorite styles of more "compact" cars. You already made my favorite, the Datsun 510, so I supposed beggers can't be choosers, but those are just my "reccomendations" .
