Is there a local hobby shop near by? Battery packs are like shoes. You should try them on before buying

Pinion depends on size of spur, type of motor and esc!

Default O-rings?

Does anybody know what standard size do the O-rings conform to?

I was thinking about AS568A-103 but I'm not sure about that.

Not much is left to post in this car...everything has been covered.. HPI needs to come up with an update, new body or hop up / light weight parts, firmer inserts for tyres or something...

Here's a project I've been working on in my spare time. The 3d model is done. Just need to sneak the wooden buck onto my friends CNC mill when he's not looking. He also has a Vacuum forming machine so I do have all the tools to get this project done.

Any guesses? It's custom made for the Cup Racer but it's been made before for pan cars.

Default Does any have this problem?

I have a cup racer with the hpi aluminum front and rear hub carriers with hot racing axle cups and when I put the 0mm offset plastic hubs on all four wheels the two wheels(front/rear) on the right side of the car sit further in than those on the opposite side. I have to put a 2mm spacer on the front right wheel to match the front left wheel with a 0mm offset spacer. And a 1mm spacer on the rear right wheel to match the rear left wheel with a 0mm offset spacer. The rims all have a 0mm offset.

Anyone know the reason/cause of this?
