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!

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!
