The new lightweight 2 speed looks a lot like the NTC3 2speed. I wonder if it has the same id on the bearings.

i guess now that you mention it the clutch doesnt have a real snappy feel

but that doesnt matter much to me anyway i guess i kinda like a smooth clutch engagement that way if i get a little trigger happy my car will still stay under control

i really didnt notice the clutch being all that heavy but i sure did notice how heavy the 2 speed was as well as those steel shafts for the 2 speed and midshaft

Well, I haven't had any problems with the clutch, as of late. I did, however blow my RODY engine. I'm not real happy with that... Car was running fine, but not getting the milage at Full Throttle Speedway. Lets just say, it was running around 240 degree, and 30 seconds left to go, and it ran out of fuel. But when it did run out, the crank broke at the jurnal... Rod is fine, piston and sleeve are fine, case is fine, but the crank broke???????

I ended up making the "A" main. I ran home to my hobby shop where I work, 60 miles away, and made the OS CV-TR work. Now this past weekend, lets say that a bunch of people who shouldn't be in the expert class, or may be I sould call it, the bumper car class, really showed me that I really need more HP.

I'm looking at the Novarossi NS12S3A1

Anyone else running that in the R40? If so, how do you like it?

Yes! And I will run no other. It has plenty of power to push the extra weight of the r40 around. After the first gallon it gets even better.

AMGRacer:

guess its time to round up some FW05 racers and start doing some smack talk .

i was just wondering how the two cars related in carryin speed in the corners, since everyone is claiming to have the lowest CG in the market.

The Rodys are renowned for breaking cranks unfortunately. The NS12 is an awesome motor.

New R40 option parts from HPI
HPI Racing announces a major new option for the ROAR National Champion HPI R40 nitro sedan, the Light Weight 2 Speed Transmission Set. The new design is lighter than the stock 2 speed, which delivers increased acceleration and a reduction in the overall car weight for faster lap times. In addition to being lighter, the new transmission features a finer gear pitch for increased efficiency and quicker acceleration, and hard anodized alloy clutch bell gears for extended gear life. And, at the request of R40 racers, the gear ratios have been revised for more punch and a higher top speed. This is a "must have" item for R40 owners who compete in race events, and is highly recommended by our team drivers. The set comes with everything needed for the conversion, and complete instructions.

#87173 Light Weight 2 Speed Transmission Set (0.8 Module) $70.00





New for the ROAR National Champion HPI R40 nitro sedan are Heat Sink Aluminum Engine Mounts. These high quality machined alloy parts offer increased engine cooling that allows the engine to run with more efficiency and higher performance, especially in hot climates and for extended race lengths typically found in A Main events. They are also lighter than the stock engine mounts, which lowers the CG of the car and overall weight for better handling and faster acceleration. Machined to the exact HPI factory specs, and purple anodized to match other HPI option parts.

#33405 Heat Sink Engine Aluminum Mount (R40) $40.00





Now available from HPI Racing is a complete Diff Gear Set for the R40 nitro sedan. This set has the 4 bevel gear modification, which makes the car more stable under hard acceleration. The 4 bevel gear set-up also increases durability and extends service intervals. For convenience, this set includes everything needed to build a spare diff assembly, a useful thing to have at race events.

#33406 Diff Gear Set (R40 4 Bevel Gear) $32.00





R40 owners can now upgrade to Aluminum Hex Hubs. These clamp type 6mm hubs are precision machined from aluminum for less hub deflection, which makes the wheels spin true for better grip and more consistent tire wear. These alloy hubs are more durable than the stock plastic hubs, and also prevent the drive pin from falling out during car maintenance. These are official HPI factory option parts, designed to the exact car dimensions and team tested for maximum performance.

#33407 Aluminum Hex Hub Clamp Type (6mm/4pcs) $32.00
