Thanks Thad. Hey, you took me out by t-boneing me and knocking out my stinger! It's all good now that my next ride might be a HPI - R40 or Pro4

Pit-racer,

I highly doubt I did it INTENTIONALLY. How did your car get sideways?

I started to build my kit and one of the shoes of the 2 speed clutch (Part# 87086) doesn't have the hole, actually hex slot for the locking nut ...I guess I have to call HPI or something.

Looks like I won't be finishing mine this weekend.

So far everything looks good. One complaint (besides my 2 speed clutch problem) is the screws and small parts are in many different steps in random bags. For example I've used Bag A for steps 1 - 22. Compared to my old RS4-3SS parts bags doesn't seem to be as user friendly.

Now look at that, Harry is obviously done flaming NTC3 critics and is more focusing on R40 owners now, even if they only state the fact that a part was missing w/o complaining.

Harry, you better take the chill pill, Mister Rubberneck

hey puma....I didn't mean to imply you were out of control or anything,I was just trying to tell you it might be a few days till you get it.....I just didn't want you to get your hopes up....HPI just got a whole order of parts in,but that part hasn't arrived yet...it coming..I know because one of my freinds broke his shoes,and I called HPI Fri to see when they were coming...

Chill pill was the wrong choice of words...Sorry buddy..
