Hey boyz long time no post here. I am jus tgetting ready for our season here and just wanted to come in and see how things were going. Looks like this thread has been pretty active lately.
I had my R40 since it came out and finally have it up to par with most of you. only thing missing here is the LW two speed. No rush for now I will see how most of you rate it. (pics to come)
NovaKing.. what are you looking to see when we post our pics, etc.
you want chassis pics or with bodies on?
A couple of things I noticed out there. When ordering replacement parts, HPI has upgraded the plastic pieces now to fix most of our concerns from the past year or so..
Tank is bigger!!! Now I can meet the 5 minute fuel pit time.
Rear uprights and A arms now come with grooves to prevent rocks from sticking to the inside of the wheels and the two set up positions for the sway bar. neat stuff. I guess I have not been up on things all winter.
Now if we can only get a revamped clutch set up from HPI we will be in business.
Does anyone know of the effects of what the lower suspension brackets have on your handling? these are the plastic parts that have a 0 or a 2mm engraved on the inside. see items in plastic tree 73479 #4 and #2 (0) and #5 and #6 (2).
Reference to lower suspension build with items mentioned above
I have not had enough run time this spring yet to be able to test this out but I am hoping someone out there already experimented.
