HPI Sprint 2 on RC4WD Predator Evo Tracks
#1
Os-support 
Hey DM wanted to share this small project. I actually went to serveral forums and searched for details on parts, and if this was even possible on an HPI Sprint 2 .. didn't see anything helpful so i just went ahead with my plans. Picked up the HPI WR8 fitting kit and Predator Evo tracks from RC4WD, some new bearings from the LHS and plugged them into my rc drifter

i didn't lift it properly and all that crunching is the body rubbing on the treads. Also, couldn't steer due to friction on the kitchen surface and inappropriate chassis+servo. This is by all means a temporary thing as i wait for backordered fitting parts for my SCX10 to come in (the treads are originally for my crawler) and i think overextended use of the treads will put a huge load strain on the sprint2 belts, possibly snapping them.

plenty of lulz.
