Nissan R91CP

Unfortunately, I have only 2 pics of this car. It hangs on my wall as a display piece, but it was the most fun I ever had racing Tamiya cars. The body is not even painted by me, but it was a friend's. He gave it to me because he didn't race this class anymore, and mine was really, really busted.

Why was this class the most fun? The first year I participated, it was quite competitive. The year after that, the class no longer counted for the championship, but was still raced, just for fun. That year, we had such laughs with everything - and everyone in sight. We ended each final by being unable to drive because of the strong laughing-cramps.

The year after that, the class was abolished. Too bad. Anyway, I like to keep this car as a reminder of the racing days - of the fun we had.


I'm converting this car to a dragster. I used it as a dragster once, which was a huge success. You can check out movies of the run here.

The conversion has only just started. The first run I had worn out 1400 NiCD cells, 8 of 'em, and a black tamiya touring acto power. I had very little braking power, as I suspect the braking FETs in my Novak HPC of being broken.

I added a wheelie bar (Ball bearings!)...

Ofcourse, I needed a new body: Saleen S7R

What's coming? Miniature high-voltage cells, faster motor, repaired ESC, new chassis, F103 front suspension, high-grip tyres (the ones in the pics are for display only), telemetry system. . The object is to get this car over 100km/h. Keep an eye on this space - more to come!


Because parts for this car are not easily available, I scratched this project, but replaced it with this one... Still want to get that car over 100km/h!
