I've dealt with them for over 10 years now.
I can say that it's better to actually go there than it is to order from them.
Their in store prices are even better.
I've never ordered anything from them.
I live close enough to go there.
People have had problems with their shipping.
It's basically because people have gotten over charged for shipping.
If it's free shipping on the R40, then I don't see why there would be a problem.

No car makes you a great driver.

Very true.........

Another info is.......I am not sure PROCEED is still under HPI now, all their parts are supported by a place called "DELTA RACING"....and the rest, you can only get them from TOWER or HPI itself.

Beside, all those FAST PROCEED are raced by DELTA sponcered team driver like TED HAMMER......these guys are having their special support with that car.

From what I saw at Mid-west series, those PROCEED are not any SLOWER then any of those MRX3 or 950R.......however, if ppl like us to own a car like that, I would say it is a little bit risky.

For 1/8th, try to think about the current champ MRX3, the long history Serpent 950R or the SOON TO BE NEW CHAMEP Kyosho Evola.............(ok, I am just guess KYOHSO will have a strong come back since their FANTOM saga...)

I did a little more testing with my R40 on the weekend. I am still finding that equal shore tires front and rear work the best. All other combinations I have tried have made the car too unstable for my liking.

Also testing showed that I cannot feel the difference in the titanium pivotballs

Default r40 build question:

I was taking a look at how I put together the front suspension of my R40, specifically the 2 purple lower hinge pin mounts.. are they supposed to face 'up' or face 'down'? (the way the offset for the hinge pin holes are oriented) It's a bit confusing to me in the manual because in some pictures, they appear to face up, but later in the manual they appear to face down. I'd appreciate it if someone could check their car to see how the plates are supposed to be installed. thanks!

I agree.. I tried 45/42 hpi foams (stock settings with graphite shock towers) on a very abrasive / high bite surface and all I got was a lot of off power understeer. I'm going to try 40/40 jacos on the same surface.

There is an addendum that comes with the manual. In this they say the stock setting is down. You can mount them pointing up, it will affect the roll geometry of the car.

It's really hard to tell the difference until you go to orange fuel tubing. Then it's like night and day.
