I've never been big on the whole battery on one side of the car thing BUT...that cup racer looks really interesting. The chassis is super narrow!

Looks like this new kit from HPI is coming to USA.

Looks... dare I say... "optimized"??

Seriously, definitely looks like a prime candidate for Vintage Trans Am!

I hope that cup racer can be converted to Rally. The Cyber 10B looks really nice; It should be in the $150-200 price range. And i think that because the e-firestorm is only $180 RTR.

Looks like it will fit lipo batteries like these fine.



What I'm more curious is if it will fit the larger and more boxy lipos.

Since the HPI Cup Racer is a kit and doesn't come with electronics, I'm probably betting a $130-150 street price. I'd be really surprised if its over $175
