Default Hobao h2 pro

Hi all, I have just bought a hobao h2 pro for £135 from a local model shop and wanted to say that I am staggered with the quality of the parts of this car for the money. What a bargain. Anybody else bought one ?

I don't think you will be the only one in the west mids. I've seen some pics of it and it does look good value for money.
Look forward to seeing them in action in the coming weeks.

I noticed that in some pictures the rear shocks are mounted on the rear of the shock tower and in others they are mounted on the front of rear tower. It looks like they can be mounted either way. Just wondering which way people are going with this ?.

Yes they can be mounted either way round,i have gone with mine at the rear of the tower plainly because that's what im used to with my 2wds,i have also reversed the shock tower as that makes the shocks straighter

Good tip there mate. When I build mine ill try reversing the tower. Don't like the colour of the anodising on the shocks tbh but what a car for the money.

There 12mm hex fitting front and rear,im guessing losi 22 wheels will be a perfect fit

Nick this car is seriously worth every penny,it has everything in the box i really dont think you could go wrong with it

Here is mine guys,not the std electrics layout as i have cut the side pods to allow me to use saddle,stick and shorty lipo configuration,

I have also reshaped the battery strap to make getting the cells out easier with this configuration.

The shell is a penguin custom shell,cheers steve really appreciate how quick you turned this around for me,keep a watch for other variations of shells in the coming weeks

I must also add thanks to dms who got the car to me so quick,much appreciated

Just a thought here,is it just me or does the wing seem very low compared to other wing heights on other cars,i have just put some other wing mounts on which has raised the wing a few mm and it now looks closer to the majority of other 2wds.

As mentioned, the rear shock tower can go on either way.
Because it is swept back it gives the correct off-set for mounting the shocks on the front of the w/bones or the rear.
The only thing if they are mounted on the front is that you won't be able to use the inner hole on the shock tower as the left shock will hit the gear cover.

Not tried other manufacturer's wheel on it. Part of the axle is not threaded so just need to make sure any wheel chosen will fit over that.
The Ho Bao wheels (and other spares) are in at CML so if needed they will be available. Certainly have white wheels and ordered yellow too so they should also been in. (sorry, the shops probably haven't got them yet as they only arrived last week and it was rather busy!). Will make sure they are available if anyone needs them.

The wing does sit a little lower then other cars. Personally I like but obviously it's down to personal taste and if you've managed to adjust it to suit you that's good

Cheers Keith for the head's up on the wheels and spares,saves me a job looking for wheels to fit.

I agree i like the look of the wing low down,it just looked really low but keeping with the kit wing mounts and having a new designed wing to balance it out
