Also, a word on the front shocks. The front half of the front diff case is the piece that determines which shock configuration you use, so it's a little involved switching from one to the other; this is not a presto-chango thing.

I was going off of memory, and since I really only cared about the two Datsuns, I guess I didn't pay much attention to the Toyota. My bad!

Manual shows most box shaped lipos will fit but the battery holder/strap cannot be used. Instead, tape is recommended.

the newest issue of Xtreme RC cars has a KICK ASS 2-page spread for the Cup Racer - showing ALL the bodies available, the Z, the 510 and the toyota..

plus the image in the background is a mean grill shot of the 510 - that sold me on the 510

Mini rims seem to fit fine without any clearance issues at least the Fluoro orange and the black swift style Tamiya rims fit perfectly. The rest should be fine as well.

I would like to see it fairly kit stock with 27turn stock brushed motors. Unless, of course, the option parts become readilly available. But for the 1st year, I would say keep them stock.
