Default starter box

That box should work without a problem, but it is a little heavy.
I like and use the Team Magic X5, ultra light and compact.

You will notice that I have made some postings about the one-way equipped cars some pages back. Key points:

1. You car must be not tweaked at all. Remove all tweak.
2. Play with your cars braking power via the transmitter EPA so that you do not lock up the brakes. You will then be able to apply some braking not much.
3. I noted above that the stock R40 setup for the rear is not optimal for usage on a one-way. Remember that when driving a oneway you should basically never brake. All of your cornering speed adjustments are made by letting off throttle at the right moments. Hence you will find that you corner very quickly and you will be taxing the rear outer tire on most corners. Try a lighter shock oil in the rear, around 50wt.

Do you have the reader or the editor? A full version will allow you to edit .pdf files.

nitro13,
As far as I can tell there is no larger tank from HPI yet as all tanks I have seen available and on instruction sheets have the same part number. Unless HPI has made a running change to the tank and used the same part number.

I will attempt to measure my tank tonight.

Default bigger tank?

I got this quote from the link that Nitro13 posted."NOTES FROM OUR TECH DEPARTMENT
This is the Stock Racing Fuel Tank for the HPI R40 Kit.

FEATURES: 2.5oz (75cc) capacity", so what is it a stock size tank, or a upgraded tank????



ANd I will download the rest of Adobe 6.0 for the setups. Thanks AMG, I'll keep ya posted.
Last but not least, any takers on the blowout special r40 NIB?

Hi guys,

I ordered a R40 a week ago and I just realize there's a new 2004 version comming out I am new with on road and I currently own a RS4 Evo. Should I just sell the R40 and pratice with my RS4? Needless to say I will have to spend lots of $$$ to make it run. (very broke at moment) I might get into racing when I have better skill

How does the current R40 stock compare with MTX-3 with the same engine, mainfold, pipe, servos, etc???? I am asking because there's more MTX-3 parts than R40 locally.

Please help me out guys...

Well you've already bought it, so I don't see any reason for you to sell it. Remember, most of the extras on the 2004 spec really wouldn't be noticed by someone just taking their first steps into racing as you seem to be doing.

As for getting 'into racing when you have more skill'....how do you think you get those skills! If your local track has a sportsman nitro class, hop in, get used to racing and learn your skills there.

Its kinda hard to compare the cars the way you mentioned, becasue hardly anyone ever runs the exact same setup(pipe, manifold, servos, etc...) as someone else. Theres so many variables to put into comarisons that they're almost pointless.

I would say since you bought it, stick with it.

Default 2004 spec R40

Can someone please tell me what the differance between the 03 R40 and the new 04 spec version is? Will it be worth waiting a couple of months for the new version?

Yep I used the IFMAR syringe measurement technique and my tank plus fuel line worked out to be 73cc. My tank is the same tank as comes in all the HPI R40 kits according to the manual. I dont think the larger tank has been released yet, unless they are using the same part number for the newer tank.
