I just bought a mr02 lp500s Lambo and a RCP 96 track. What would be a good starting point?

there are MANY threads on what hop ups to get. please search these.

TIRES will be the first thing you should get. again there are MANY threads on rcp tracks and tire choices. typically gpm 8 to 15 deg as well as kyosho 20 deg tires for the rear and gpm 8-30 as well as kyosho 20 deg tires for the front. pick a few and try them out, see what suits your driving style and go from there.

Here's a post from the FAQ


and very similar information compiled in the MZR blog.

I have the bearings and 20 for the rear 30 fronts. For the dampening my mr02 has to two rear shocks not the one center what do I look for in an upgrade? springs?

Sounds like you have a good start. I would just drive drive drive... :D

great thanks. I used to have 2 orig mini-zs but never used them so I e-bayed them. Now I am back with the Lambo and a awd delta on the way.

Sounds like you have a good start. I would just drive drive drive... :DI would ditto that. Having the RCP Mini-96 Track is the key! Set the track up and drive. You learn very fast on an RCP Track, especially the Mini-96 with the narrow lane widths. ;)

One great feature of the Mini-96 is the flexability when building tracks in the house. I've had a couple of Mini-96's and some expansion tiles for quite some time and it can be a lot of fun creating tracks around furniture and other architectural obsticles. :p

Here are a few pics. The first is a computer generated view of a track I set up using two Mini-96's and about 20- 24 expansion tiles. The next two are of the Mini-96 set up in my house.

Once again, you have to drive to know how to tune your chassis, so, drive, drive, drive. :D

I liked the mini 96 because its more of a road course to me. I like the narrow lanes you have to earn your pass.
