Cup Racer by HPI

To complete the True Ten concept, the challenge of the design team was to put the scale bodies on a chassis that is truly deserving of the ultimate scale looks. This involved a complete re-think of how scale RC cars are designed and used by today's RC hobbyists. Scale modelers want something that just works, however experienced RC hobbyists and racers want something that can be tuned to perform. We think our guys nailed it.

Ready to Perform

Experienced RC racers will be able to take one look at the Cup Racer chassis and see for themselves the performance potential of this all-new chassis! A huge array of tuning adjustments is possible using the standard kit parts.

The Cup Racer features full-time 4WD, a super-stiff chassis, oil-filled shocks and inboard front shocks, plus as the ability to independently adjust suspension settings such as caster, camber, track width, roll center, wheelbase, anti-dive, anti-squat, droop and much more! If you like your cars to drive as well as they look, the Cup Racer is for you!

Designed for Excellence
From the very start, the True Ten scale Cup Racer was engineered for top-level performance at a reasonable cost - while still maintaining the true-to-scale look that scale modelers desire. To accomplish this, HPI designers have taken it upon themselves to perfect concepts that long-time HPI owners may recognize, but haven't seen in their ultimate, final form.

With the Cup Racer, you can find elements of past HPI achievements put together to make the ultimate scale RC enthusiast's machine - ready for your hands to assemble and create the magic that is radio control modeling.

Total Adjustability

Hex hubs: 0mm + 4mm
Spacers: 1mm + 2mm
With the True Ten chassis, you will be able to fit a wide range of upcoming HPI True Ten bodyshells, as well as available bodyshells such as the popular M-chassis models. Because real cars have varying dimensions such as width, wheelbase and height, HPI designers have created the True Ten chassis to be as flexible as possible when fitting true-to-scale bodyshells.

What this means is that you can easily change the wheelbase of the car to suit short or long wheelbase cars (210mm or 225mm). Also very important is the width of the car - you will be able to incrementaly widen or narrow the width of the chassis by as little as 1mm at a time, and up to 13mm per side, with a combination of hex hub adapters, spacers and offset wheels. You'll be able to get the on-the-edge sports car look or the sedate passenger car look in a matter of minutes with the ingenius True Ten spacer system!

Variable Offset Wheels

To help you get a totally realistic looks, we will be offering a range of reproduction classic wheel types to suit the True Ten chassis.

Like the popular Rays TE37 replica drift wheels from HPI, the True Ten wheels will be offered in the widest selection of wheel offsets available to RC modelers: standard 0mm offset, wider 3mm offset for an extra 6mm of total width, and the 6mm deep-offset design for widening the car a full 12mm from the wheels alone!

Fits a Massive Range of Bodyshells

As you can see here, the True Ten chassis is designed from the ground up to be totally realistic and true to scale: true one-tenth scale! With a huge variety of real cars to choose from, plus the range of M-type bodyshells available already, we wanted to make sure that RC scale fanatics would be able to fit any available bodyshell on the chassis with a minimum of hassle.

A selection of body posts will be available to custom-fit any True Ten or M-chassis bodyshell, using a variety of body post locations. Even car designs with low-profile front ends will fit, thanks to the laydown-style front shocks! Coupe-style bodies will fit easily with the changeable rear post mount location. In short, ANY M-chassis bodyshell will fit, to allow you to replicate ANY car you like!

The front shock fitting can also be changed to a more standard upright shock setting, or a laydown configuration to help fit low-profile bodyshells.

Coming soon from HPI is an all-new selection of classic sports cars from the pages of history: cars that challenged the ideal and toppled the mightiest giants. Check back here for updates after the official kit release!

The chassis will take any stick, side-by-side or even hard-case LiPo battery packs in the uniquely cool swing-out battery tray. Standard-height servos fit in the slickly designed laydown area, and if want to fit modern low-profile servos, these will fit in a stand-up position if you choose, for a more central position in the chassis.
