Default Found it

After reading this thread over the past year I've been looking for my ZXR and finally found it

I used to drive for Ripmax and had a few of them but from what I can remember I only kept 1 car ( maybe I do have some more somewhere), I am yet to come across any spares

So my plan is to strip and rebuild it and use it as there are some clubs now doing a vintage class.

It has a few option and pre prodution parts fitted but also its missing some parts like the wing mount but I believe these are easily found.

I would be grateful for your comments on what other things it made need to bring it up to date and capable of running brushless.

I still race and dont expect it to compare to my Durango but from what I can remember it was a good car.

Aside from a gearcover I'd think you're fine. Check the places you'd like to run: most vintage classes have some limitations on the moter

Default Just bought a ZXR!

I just bought a ZX-R from a fellow oOpler!

Looks like I'll need new wheels/tyres - are the yellow wheels the same as for the ZX5? I notice the part number for the rears has been updated but the fronts are the same as in the ZXR manual? As for tyres, may just use Schum Minispikes.

I'll also be after a shell/undertray/wing and decals so hope Kamtec do start doing a ZXR shell.

Dan

If your gonna race it get the annsman madrat front and rear wheels, there a direct fit and are the same diametre as kyoshos but look nicer and are stronger. Cheap as well.

Shell, well you could buy the lazer zxs shell and undertray which come as a set from kamtec ( link below ) or the parma tomcat shell from them which is a nicer looking zxr shell but this doesnt come with undertray, now there is a company on ebay that does undertrays but youll need to buy a few as they are very thin and dont last long. Wings down to you which you go for, me i use jc concepts as they last longer. I did leave a voicemail last week and will chase kamtec for an update on undertray and zxr shell.

Stickers, on ebay and they are repro but make sure you get zxr. Fyi may be a good idea to find the zxs stickers and email him regarding the zxr stickers he makes.

Cheers.

I've actually already ordered some of the eBay replica ZX-R decals.

The car won't be run, I want to make it as close to box art as I can preferably.

I have used the team bluegroove bodyshell and repro decals from Marwan. Wing is genuine Kyosho.

Nice, thanks for the pics!

Just messaged Team Bluegroove on eBay......asked for a shell, wing, gear cover and undertray.

You'll just leave it there on the shelf?!

That car begs to be run - now and then at least! Anyway that's what I think.

I'm assuming you must have some nice tracks in muscat.

Team bluegroove stuff found on eBay (search for shop). Though marwanrc do better packages for cheaper and he's in Kuwait.

Thanks, I've spoken to Marwan a few times on email now - he doesn't do the ZXR shell....yet. Very helpful guy.

No tracks in Muscat, well except the two I just built!....nearly finished and inside a shopping centre. I don't want to run her on the sand but may on astro.

Wow! You built two tracks and one in a shopping centre!

Some pics would be great!

Best wishes.

Ok you did ask Bit off topic but here goes......don't want to hijack this thread.

I've been here just over a year and started with a temporary hose/tyres track on a netball court, that gained initial interest and I just downloaded some free lap timing software and counted manually.

Then together with the local hobby shop owner, now a good friend, I presented to management of the shopping centres.....both were lots of work, basically starting the hobby from scratch, they'd never had a track before and I had to promote R/C and get people spending money....my wife was not best pleased. I did a race weekend in a shopping centre in the UK too which was a big success (and great fun) called the Union Square GP.

So, the 1st track was built for 1/10th scale electric TC in the car park of a shopping centre here in Muscat called Qurum City Centre.

The 2nd one is above the food court in Omans largest shopping centre, Muscat Grand Mall (literally a few stairs up from McDonalds, KFC etc) and consists of a 1/10th on road electric TC track with permanent MyLaps/AMB timing, an astro off road track (probably too small for 1/10th), a drift track and an AR Drone flying course......we're just finalising the build now but have held a trial race on the on road track.

Next I'm looking to do a 1/10th off road electric track somewhere away from sand - there's lots of that here.

There was an article in April's RC Racer Magazine about all this - can't attach the pdf as it's too big.

See attached pics.

Cheers,

Dan

It's very pretty! But why did you paint the roof the same color as the windows? It does give it a cool futuristic look though...
