Wheels- http://www.hpiracing.com/en/part/3037

I don't know what the tires are but HPI does still make the #4590 slicks listed on this page (although it looks like he is running foams)- http://www.hpiracing.com/en/parts/112715/wheels-tyres

Not yet, but will post it later, the diffuser also act as a skip plate. buy the diffuser Team Associated Pro Rally Rear Diffuser Set 7172, I got mine from Tower Hobbies, take out the 4 screw from the rear drive housing , measure the hole from the WR8 chassis, re-drill 4 hole on the diffuser, sand down the original countersink to make it flat on the back side of the diffuser, bolt it onto the bottom rear of the chassis, that's it. you might need to trim the diffuser a little to make it fit inside the body.

Sweet, seems simple enough. Maybe I'll give it a try.

Those are the rims but what tires are you using? They look like foams?

I believe the stock setup can run up to 60mph with 3s lipo.

Looks like HPI is finally producing a Subaru body for the WR8!!

http://www.hpiracing.com/en/part/113239 & http://www.hpiracing.com/en/part/113240

They look great!




I'm looking for somewhere to order a few of them. I can't wait!

Alright! Someone finally listened and produced a set of CVDs for the WR8!

http://integy.com.cn/st_prod.html



They look about the same as the RCDamper set for the Bullet, hopefully they are made out of the same type of steel too. I'm going to order a set as soon as they show up at tower or eBay so I can take advantage of the discounts.
