HPI makes 4 different types of tires for the CR wheels. They have hard, medium and soft compound for the MX60 slicks as well as drift tires. The CR can also use Tamiya M chassis wheels as well as other M wheels from other makers.

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)

MY BAD: Posted incorrect info.. edited post!

Nonetheless I do agree that the wheels for this class should have been 60D all around. Unfortunately manufacturers egos come into play and mess things up for us consumers.

Um...no.

CR tires are 60D, why do you think they call them MX60X26?



CR wheels are bigger than M wheels.



IMO I think HPI did a good thing with their CR wheels/tires. They made a slightly bigger wheel while using a lower profile 60mm tire.

You're right:

I just measured them.. even the X patterns are small and wont fit the CR rims.... with X patterns you have to use Tamiya rims!

and to top it off, the x-patterns won't even mount on the CR rims regardless of the diameter the CR tires use a different mounting bead then a 'standard' tire

The main goal with the design of the Cup Racer wheels/tires we're to make them as realistic as possible (mainly in the height of the rubber sidewall relative to the overall size of the wheel and size of the inner rim). Just like the Vintage series wheels/tires.

Exactly

With that said, for those of you who have a hardon for X patterns for your CR, maybe you should write to HPI and ask them to make X patterns for CR wheels if you don't want to use wheels for the Switch or from Tamiya or other brands?

Personally I've found the slicks to offer very good grip.

They donīt fit Cup Racers. They have a slightly shorter wheelbase.(208mm vrs 210mm) These bodies fit M03 and ABC Genetic but not Cup Racers. I bought the 2 options offered on ebay by this canadian people.
I am not really expert in bodies but I will post some pics as soon I get home and show you the difference. Maybe with different tires or any other mod would fit, and I would apreciate any advice about it.

Oops..my mistake. I thought the cup racer would fit most Tamiya Mini bodies when setup at 210mm.
I don't have a cup racer ...yet but do the suspension arms themselves offer any additional wheelbase adjustment?
They do specify the body will fit M03 and thats a 210mm chassis.
