Default Finally, I put my Cup Racer together (almost)

The more time I spend working on this car, the more I appreciate the design and manufacturing quality. In the beginning, I had to look though bags for parts and I hated that so much, but I found my interest in r/c cars back because of this car.

I actually am looking for them as well. I called HPI and they're supposed to be available at the end of this month.

Same here,

Now you just have to anodize that heatsink orange! I would buy it for sure!

Maybe the aluminum color looks better for most people?

I think there's already enough RX7 available in the 1/10th segment. What would be nice is to see some Italian cars like this one.


or something English like this one:

Any chance for an Alpha GTV6


Or maybe a Bertone/X19?


Or even a 914?
I'll have to check on the sheet again (I didn't make those decals)

I was wondering if the M sized belted x pattern tires would fit on a stock rim. Your help is appreciated!

No, Cup Racer rims need Cup Racer tires. If you want to run the M tires, you need the M rims...

It seems silly that HPI would design wheels for mini-sized cars that don't fit their already pre-existing stock of mini tires. Especially when the tire (X-pattern) is one of their best sellers. How is this class going to grow if there isn't some sort of standardization for tire and rim sizes like it is in 1/10th TC.

This is the same mistake HPI made with Super Nitro because of the lack of tire choices due to its specific size which didn't match other super sized cars at the time. (Tamiya & Kyosho)

Either make the wheels the same as minis to fit everyone elses mini sized tire or make more tire options for the Cup Racer wheels. Right now there's only one.
