Hey guys, finished my R40, looking to sell possibly. But if that falls through, I will be doing some racing with it. I am totally new to onroad as a whole, although I'm pretty good with nitro offroad. I'm going to be doing some parking lot races, as well as a medium bite track. Would a one way improve performance on these tracks. I'm also having problems with the front diff leaking, the rear is fine, but I think almost all of the oil is gone from the front after the build. Also, the side belt is really loose, and I havn't figured out a way to tighten it yet.

Looking for some reccomendations on a engine, I could either pull out the standard shaft from my MT-12 and throw in a SG and use that, or I could just buy a new engine, probably around 100 bucks (same price as a new shaft and carb for the mt-12). What would you guys reccomend?

Also open to any setup, foam tire, and hopup reccomendations.

Thanks,

Ryan


i have been running my r40 a few weeks now and this is what i have on it.

graphite shock tower- front and rear
lightweight chassis
lightweight pulley shafts
lightweight radio tray

foam tire set-up

one way
4 gear diff (rear) with 30k diff oil -by kyosho
stock springs
30 wt shock oil (rear)
40 wt shock oil (front)
camber would depend on tire wear

Yeah yeah... I already have one of those. Too bad it's attached to a diff with gears that don't last.

Thanks rodrigo! looks like they're backordered.

The SX12 series is reliable (if not abused), and fast. Might be a little fidgity on the needles.

I used to have one, hooked up with a rex pipe, it was great on small tracks!

That conversion set definitely looks promising. If the lightweight stuff is what your after, it looks to be a quick and easy way to do it.
