Hey guys I just ordered my himoto today it was $98 shipped. For those of you guys that have it how long did it take to arrive?
Also I want to put new rims with abs tires, should I buy rims with 0 offset or 3 offset?

Thanks

Its good to see some people are living on the Edge of RC Drifting and using a chassis with hardly any aftermarket support ..

I would have played it safe and gone with a Proven RC Drifter like the TT-01..

Not only do I want to see Pics of the Nascada I WANT an actual half decent Video of one sliding..

all the ones I can find on the net are poor resolution and the quality of the drifts, a Drift King can do better..

So I want to see a Nascada in Action from a member on here and not some poor excuse for an E-bay hobbyshop.

All depends on the body and the width. I am running a 190mm body from HPI and I have heard that a 6-7mm offset will put the tires just perfect with the width of the body. There is nothing more annoying to me when people put a ton of time in to painting a body, then have wheels and tires that are about 5mm or so to narrow....

URC

I'll definitly post a detailed review, and I'll put up some nice clean video of it too The parts issue for the Himoto isn't really too big of a deal to me, I can go online and order from a number of places and get my parts quick enough. I can't find most parts for my RS4 very easily here in AZ I don't know of any worthwhile LHS in Phoenix. I still haven't broken anything on my Himoto Rapida, and I think the suspension parts are interchangable. In any case it may be a few weeks because the car is coming from Hong Kong.

Sorry if i am wrong, but I thought that for the HPI 190mm bodies I need it 0 offset wheels. Can somebody help me out because I plan on getting wheels and a 190mm body today. I wouldnt want to get the wrong wheels.

I thought i read somewhere that 6-7mm offset was perfect.....but I can test in a bit.

If someone can confirm in the mean time...then please do.

Here is my himoto, I just received it yesterday and I am amazed of how good built and fast it is. All I upgraded was the battery for a venom 7.2v 3000mah ($25.00). I am waiting for my HPI wheels[link]http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/wti0001p?&I=LXLME3&P=0[/link] and abs tires http://www.sflrcdrift.com/ there at the bottom of the page. I also want to get a body 190mm and need help on how to lock a himoto's rear diff??? I will post more pics and video when I get the tires and wheels.

if the diff is a gear diff then u can put somethign like putty or blu tac in the gears to stop the diff action if its a ball diff. you will need to tighten it. about fitting 190mm bodies. on 190mm chassis u need 0 offset witch is wat all electric touring car chassises are. 190mm. but the tt01 is the only exception that needs like 6mm offset to fit a regular 190mm body becuase the tt01 is not as wide as regular chassies

Oh also the Himoto has metal differentials, is this true of the TT01? Is it better to have plastic?

Nylon Gearing causes less friction then metal gearing
Nylon Gearing will chew saving the Rest of the Drivetrain in the event of a Malfunction, Metal gears will Destroy each other and pass the stress to the rest of the drivetrain rather then snapping or Wearing out

If you want aluminum Himoto offers it for the Rapida, but it's expensive like 30 dollars + shipping just for a-arms.

They have:
[ul][*]Front & rear purple aluminum shock towers ($16 each)[*]Front & rear purple aluminim a-arms ($30 each pair)[*]Purple ALuminum wheel hex locks ($10 for 4)[*]Purple Aluminum shell posts ($15 for a set)[*]front and rear universal shafts ($17 for a pair)[*]aluminum linkages ($18 a pair)
[/ul]

I think you can substitute some cheap GPM/yeah racing parts for the HPI RS4 but you cannot use the differentials , shock towers, or the bulkheads. I believe the a-arms are a perfect fit, (I am not sure though) but you'd have to buy as well the C-hubs and hubs. Give me a couple days and I'll see if the aluminum a-arms fit. I think I have an extra pair.

Well guys I just finished my lexus body, but I am still waiting for my drift wheels. For the pic I put some wome wheels that I was using on my rc18t. I also need to finish cutting the body since the wheels fit a bit to tight. I will post more pics and video when I get my wheels and finish cutting the body.

looks good Inc0321. i like how you didn't put a spoiler on it, but it would look better if the body didn't have the spoiler posts.

I think 190mm dont fit that good with this chassis. I am going to try 200m bodies next time, I have 0 offset and the wheels still stick out a little bit.
