Hey Jim,
Great choice! I am a Porsche aficionado and will also be doing a tangerine RS in addition to the Martini body. If you don't mind, please share more photos if you have them!

I have been involved in RC for some 25+ years starting off with cars and then moved onto gliders and planes. I have had a number of RC cars over the years and most recently have had a TA-03 and a F201 which was just stolen when my wife and I had our house robbed. As you can guess from the F201 I love really well done scale cars and that is what got me interested in the Cup Racer...they look fantastic. Anyhow I am starting to look at what to power it with and from reading every post, that took awhile, it seems that people like these with with a milder set up. I am totally comfortable specing power systems for my RC planes but when it come to cars I am at a bit of a loss especially with the difference between brushed and brushless systems wind count. I am guessing something like a 10.5 turn brushless system would be what I am looking for? Could be totally wrong here though as I do better when using the KV of a motor then the turns. Also wondering what Lipo packs people have used that fit the battery holder.

Thanks and looking forward to the build, attached is a 2.7RS that I saw up at Lime Rock over the summer, what a cool color.


Cheers,
Jim

Ryan,
Long time German car fan here as well, Been driving Turbo'd Audi Quattros for almost 20 years and own a Ur-q (original Quattro Coupe) now just because I could not afford a Porsche and now that we can afford one we have a two year old and the wife said no to a two door , the new Panamera is a bit over our budget.

I took a bunch of pictures at the Porsche corral at Lime Rock this summer, if you would like to shoot me your e-mail address I will send over the full size files.

Cheers,
Jim

Hello all,
Got to spend a couple hours working on my 2.7RS and had a question, the front differential seems to bind a bit when you push the drive shaft receptical into the housing, is this one of the areas that a couple of you mentioned should be shimmed?

I have bought shimming washers before but it was a long time ago, and they were much smaller then what I would need here, does anyone have a good place to pick these up.

Thanks.

Cheers,
Jim

Hey JIm - as far as shims, look for ones that are made for either the HPI Pro4 or the HotBodies Cyclone they all work on the cars...I used those shims on my cup racer when I did that for mine

Thanks for the tip on the shims, I found them but hate to pay $5.00 in shipping for a $2.00 part , may just have to go ahead and get the Aluminum shock bodies while I am at it.

Wondering if anyone knows if you have to go with the lay down shocks with the Porsche body?

The build is mostly halted till I get the shimming washers so I will be working on the body over the long weekend.

Where do you get the LED kits?

Thanks and Happy Thanksgiving everyone.

Cheers,
Jim

Shims: You probably can use Tamiyas as well: 53585 includes 3x0.1mm shim (10), 3x0.2mm shim (10), 3x0.3mm shim (10). Amainhobbies stocks them
look on AMAINHobbies.com

Has anyone found the FUCHs wheels that go on the Porsche RSR? HPI's site still doesnt list a part number for them.

Default Suggestions anyone?

There are so many pages and so much great information here, so what I am asking may already have been covered, but here it goes anyway.

We getting a cup racer class going at our track and want to keep it as low cost as possible. We are running a somewhat small (90' long X 26' wide)indoor carpet track, trying to make the box stock tires work but seems to be a losing battle. What would be a good rubber tire to use on carpet?

Also, our shop wants to tag and issue motors for this class to be returned at the end of each night, trying to keep tampering to a minimum. What would be a good spec motor for this type of an approach? I remember back in the day that there was a Trinity spec 21 turn and thought that would be a good fit, but not sure it exists any more.

Any help is greatly appreciated!
