Yes I did! that is why I mentioned my love for the car. One of the coolest WRC Cars of all time. Radical yet functional and Beautiful!

Nice work on those. I am envious of them.

I re-ordered from Omni since they have em in stock AND emailed me about 10$ off 100$ order. Hello 2 day shipping

Also remembered how I even know Omni- got my first 1/43 Modifiers factory box from them years ago and I loved those lil ricer models. So 2 birds from one store, not bad at all.

Can anyone confirm whether or not these cars use 130 size motors?

If a motor used is larger than the stock one you will run the risk of killing the board.

The instructions have the speed control rated at 7 amps. It does not list the max voltage. I couldn't find an online manual to share but it is listed in the back. That should be enough to handle a pretty hot motor. What I don't know is if 7 amps is peak or sustained. Also 7amps may be instant death but 2 amps after 5 minutes might be death by heat. Dunno.

I would think you could run a bigger motor for a few minutes and monitor temparature.

That is good to know. I did not read the specs on the ESC. I would assume 7amp max continuous? Most Escs are rated that way and usually have a MAX Amp for a short burst.....I think the car needs to be WIDER before it gets too much faster..............I am working on converting one into a wide chassis style to fit one of my wide slot cars......The front is easy the rear will need more work to make a longer shaft or wider wheel adaptors......

Here is a pic of the cars I want to convert with a WIDE chassis layout..

Any thoughts on this concept?

I know with different, larger scale 1:28 prototype car I saw at iHobby, it had a 130 size or larger motor, it was AWD, and was getting plenty enough power from a Lithium power setup. That speed control was rated for 5 amps. So if 7 amps is continous, nearly any motor that isn't insane should work. At least long enough to monitor temps without worry about instant blowout.

Huh? Tell us more please . Are you referring to the chassis in the first picture in post #1 or something else. I didn't think these were capable of being converted to AWD.

I think he was mentioning another car that had similar specs.
This car is not going to be offered in 4WD as a conversion as far as I know.
It was just a comparo of specs to say that this car may be able to have a motor with more grunt without killing itself!!

Sorry, I edited the post a little to clarify.
There was a 1:28 scale prototype car at ihobby. It was NOT HPI. It was a larger, heavier, car with AWD and lithium power. The reason I shared the info is that the car only had a 5 amp speed control. SO if a heavier car with a bigger motor than the rs32 can do fine with 5 amp, the rs32 should be fine with the 7amp controller it has included.

This is the 1:28 prototype I'm referring to.

Here is the next challenge. The Mclaren body is wider than the chassis. The body is 63mm and the chassis is 54mm. I need to make a Wide stance kit and fit it under this awesome looking body.
Without a doubt it will handle better than stock. I plan on using the slot car rims and tires so the gear ratio will be a little taller so the speed will pick up.
Custom adapters will need to be made and perhaps a new chassis all together maybe if I need to. Will try to lengthen the wheelbase as needed as well.....Lots of work, but man is it fun!
Cant wait to get started!!!
I will post more pics as I progress.
