Adey sent me pics of his newly built H2 yesterday. Must say that I am massively impressed with the quality.

So tempted to try one of these

Judging by the reaction to this car, and the following it has already gained in such a short time, how can a 'Hobao' thread be added to the 'Car Talk' section of Oople?

Totally agree Arran,lets hope Jimmy is taking note

My H2 will get its first run out at Telford on the 30th,i think there are another 2 or 3 in the midwest already so there will be no shortage of help and idea's around for the car

A very exciting car indeed. Certainly deserving of its own section

Very excited about this car now.
Have 2 on their way.

Would be good to have a Hobao section so we can share setups etc

I am sure jimmy is reading this. Mine went together very well and still can't believe the level of quality of the car for the money.

although i get mine tomorrow, i would like to ask anyone who has one already, whether the spacers provided with the kit, it for spacing the hubs etc are plastic or ali?

I cant stand plastic ones.

Do i need to order up a batch of 3x7 schumacher shims?

Got my pro kit today and very impressed with what you get in the box.It even comes with a set of tyres and inserts.
Unfortunately not enough time to build and run at Area51 tomorrow.

also any ideas how the spacers are supposed to work for anti squat. Also on page 15

Yes Steve,i found the hinge pin spacers were a tight fit,but im happy with that as taking the wishbones off everything stays in place.

The anti squat spacers took a bit of working out,i am going to start with the middle thickness,that way it gives the option to go either way but i found with the quick run i gave it that it felt nice like that

Yeah, I found the same so I used a reamer to make the holes bigger...only to find that I didn't need to do that as both wishbones were slop free without any spacers - bonus.

Loving my H2 kit, the moulding quality is right up there with the big Japanese firms and the chassis looks amazing. Unfortunately my kit came without any manual, decals or window masks but MB Models / CML sorted me out with a manual immediately. Just waiting on decals now.
