They can be adjusted by the turnbuckles if they're adjustable.

Hi.

I'm new to this forum but my life in the R/C started quite a few years ago. My first car was a HPI Sprint (that I still have), then I went to 1/10th nitro for a while but decided to change to 1/5 (that's an awesome scale but it takes too much time). Life took some turns and I sold the 1/5 but now I'm thinking of, slowly, doing some upgrades to my HPI Sprint (not a Sprint 2, still the first one). I've read that it's hard to get original parts from HPI but that there's a lot of aftermarket ones from China (I'm living in the UK, don't know about customs and duty).
What do you sugest for me to do (it's not for drift, it's for touring)? I'm completely outdated regarding ESCs, batteries and motors. As soon I'll have some pics to put here I'll post them, that way you can see what I have but the idea is to do a long term project, not buying a new car

Thanks

I would suggest that you find a good used car. The Sprint 2's chassis design makes it difficult to use lipos. I have two friends who received a Sprint 2's and they have both stopped using them. They both have enough parts to build two or three cars. They are both mechanically inclined. They didn't want to continue to waste the time, effort and money.

Hello

i just own a stock brand new Sprint 2 Flux

i saw on the box that it could reach 53mph with optionnal pinion gear and spur gear, and with a 2S lipo.

i would like to know what is the maximum consumption of the Flux ESC (in Ampere please), so i can take a lipo with enough power discharge rate

and also, if i take the optionnal part that HPI talk about to reach this max speed (34T pinon gear and 81T spur gear), is it really safe for the car, i mean, is it going to damage the car at long ?

thanks
