Two will be fine but of course 4 is the way to go. FWIW, the avenger cups can hold much more than 2kg, that number is pretty low.

Just seen your flickr pic, You say about snow and 4 cups, I assume you want to try some drifting rigging shots?! :D

Neil, very nice photos... great work! Thanks for sharing.

Your rig looks very well designed, very straight in fact. how long is the pole and what's the material, length and OD size?

You mean pointing straight up, looking down on the car? That'd be pretty cool.

No, attached to the roof with the boom still parallel to the ground so we see the hood.

What the lenses you guys use (also include the camera body, you know crop factor and all). Im not sure if lenses used here will apply to my other needs to warrant a full purchase.

They're usually ultra wide to wide angle depending on how long your boom is and the effect you're after.

10-20, 10-22, 11-16, etc on crop so you won't need to have a boom that long to fit the whole car plus a bit of background.

17-40, 16-35, 24, etc on FF.

If you have a more narrow FL, you're going to need a longer boom to have the same composition compared to a wide angle.

I don't have a setup of my own, but this is based off reading through the forums and helping out a couple friends with their rigs.

This looks amazingly good. I know you're not supposed to ask, but can we see an original?

Is the lighting on the car all natural, or did u use flash and then put the lit body over the rigged one?

Well done to you, looks great
