Default Cup Racer's that catch your eye!

Here are my two cup racers I just finished. The silver one is my racer and the orange on is my drifter. Both run Novak Rooster 12t esc's, silver has a p2k2 quad mag motor, and the orange one has a fantom team stocker. And the most important improvement (hop up) is FFRC bearing kit! This is a must for any rc car!! Well here they are, let me know what ya think










Thanks for looking!

Really nice work on these two cars. Eye-catching photography too! Without your captiion, I could have mistaken them for fulll-size rides.

It's different...If that's what you like then more power to ya! For me it's a twist on a traditional paint job that's the eye catcher. Why hid things with stickers...

And thanks for the great comments from every one!

I love the cupracer too, some of these bodies are no longer with us so i'm glad i took pics, and one of my first car I built when i was 19, definitely more expensive than the models.

Those 510's are sweet. Great memories of racing the real things in the late 70's. A great handling car for such a tin-can. Drop in a Trip-S crate motor and off ya go! I'd love to have one of those! Might have to get into this scale cup car racing thing!
