I would like to get an old TC3 4 or 5. I don't much care for the belt drive. I have recently got some info on how to mod the sprint a little and things to look for so the belts last longer.

i think the sprint chassis is a good platform to start with and the graphite parts are cheap in cost, i dont think u can beat that.

What about gearing, or is that more track specific?

I didn't buy the rtr, running 4600kv sidewinder. I'll have to save my pennies for a 25.5 Havoc syst.

Does HPI offer the Sprint 2 Camaro SS body? I can't find it listed as a 200mm body anywhere. Got to love the SS body.

I think HPI makes one too. It's 190 though I think. I've been looking at so many bodies I cant remember now.

Thats what I was thinking. You dont have a very big market of customers with a touring car shell thats 175mm wide. Even with zero offset you will be sticking out 7.5mm each side. That doesnt work for me.

The HPI one looks really good.I have been only able to find it in 200mm.I wonder if the vintage wheel and tires will make the car wider to accomodate the wider body
