Default P-160F C.P.R. Unit ?

Recently I was at a garage sale with my son and we found a Tamiya RC Rahal-Hogan Lola T94/00 Indy Car 1/10th scale kit for $30. It was new an unopened so I thought it would be something fun for us to work on. However, the kit calls for a Tamiya P-160F C.P.R. Unit (speed control with servo) and we can't seem to find one anywhere.

Does anyone have any suggestions as to something comparable?

We did find a Unit at this japanese site http://hobbyworld.aoshima-bk.co.jp/s..._code=TAM45015 , but hoping to find something I can pick up at the local hobby shop. I'm sure the hobby shop might have suggestions as well, but thought the public may have better ideas an reasons why.

Thanks for any help you can give us.

Any conventional ESC and receiver combo will work, assuming it fits in the space in the chassis.

The CPR units were combined ESC's and receivers, based on Futaba technology, they were never suited to fast motors and as a result are pretty rare.

Yea you should be able to fit any regular ESC, and receiver in there, but I'd suggest looking for the smallest one you can afford. I believe that car is just an extended version of Tamiya's F1 chassis (F102, 103, etc) I once had a Tamiya F1 car and fit a pretty large ESC in it, but it was really tight fit, so if you have the choice between a larger and smaller esc go with the small one. Any regular size steering servo should fit in there.

Sounds like you got a deal. I would have jumped on that in a second.
