I don't agree with that. Here is my CR

Finally got if finished, well 90% I still have to install the light set, and find an interior.

Vote for the body of the month :-)

Looks nice there but what exactly do you not agree with?

The 55mm tires and rims look fine with the HPI bodies. I have the Tamiya rims and HPI radials on mine. They look fine.

HPI STOCKers are 60mm that is why they look nice with HPI bodies True 55mm RACE tires look way out of proportion (too small) in the big wheels wells of the HPI bodies.

As I mentioned good race slicks are 55mm. The radials are not at the same performance level as the ABC tire.

I'll have to post a pic with my HPI Datsun over ABC slicks- mine looks funny to me

It's a little ways from the Pasadena area, but worth the drive....

Regards,
Finally made it down to Ultimate Hobbies today, great store, but alas no tires. From Pasadena to OC, none to be found. Luckily Stormer had gotten some in stock (email notification) so I hit 'em up w/ a quickness to scoop up what they had.....

would this be a good car for my first on road?
i run spec slash and 1/8 e-buggy...and it's fun, but sometimes i'm stuck not being able to race (all the tracks are quite a ways from me) and would like somethign to run in the local parking lots and even at the local parking lot races...

they use 540 motors, right? i was thinking about getting a stock SC10 rtr esc and running it since it's got lipo cut off and they're pretty cheap

If you have mini's in mind...then Yes get a CR if not look into like a Cyclone S touring car, both are great for parking lot racing as well as indoor. As for 540 motors we here in So Cal run 540 spec motors for our club races...so it all depends on what your local club uses for motors. Hope this answers your ?'s.
