Default HPI's new Savage

This might be the reason why there is only 1 HPI Challenge this year.

fastharry,

it is not the tie rod that is stirpped, it is the plastic, it just gets smashed all the way down, so i have a really really bad camber problem. so i dont think the strip things will work because it is the plastic that is stripped, not the metal... but thanks

Yeah, I know....HPI copied that idea from AE NTC3.....
I cannot give you more input, but I look at those parts, and thinking, you can try getting the SERPENT shock ball cap with Lusford titanium turnbuckle.........give that a shot.

Serpent plastic are a little stronger then others...and lusford, no need to say.

Too bad, no one making the METRIC version of "THE NUT", BMI racing made one to solve the exact same problem for NTC3 but they are standard thread.

For those R40 2004 Spec owner wanna be (especially me).....I emailed TANI from Champ International RC in Japan (again, they are FROM JAPAN), and wondering how much it will cost me to ship 1 (one) R40 2004 spec from Japan to USA via PAYPAL...he reponded within 4 hours (now, that is good service) and here is the break down...

Quote......"Thank you for our shop use.

1x HPI #30822 R40 2004 version Kit 33100Yen.

* In the Paypal *.
Item total 33100 Yen.
Shipping EMS USA 6100 Yen, (3.5kg).
Paypal charge 2130 Yen.
Package insurance charge 50 Yen.
Total price 41380 Yen.

In English (or US $) that is (from XE.com)...................$390.234 however, I garantee you that PAYPAL currency exchange rate will be more then www.xe.com....so, let say 5% more....like $415.00 out the door.....

To be honest, this place (Champ RC) is CHEAP, cheaper then those from HK, and they are just follow the sur-charge from PAYPAL and EMS.....33100 for the kits is $312 US, that is exactly like what I expected if this kit is coming to USA (of course, HPI USA disagree).........what killing me is the PAYPAL and EMS.....good $80 US plus total....but they can garantee me to get the R40 within 10 days(if I order today Thursday).......

With all the extra from shipping and paypal......it is just almost the same if you order the option parts seperately and with the stock R40 kits....however, there is 1 specific option parts that is not avalible here in USA (yet) that is the 0.8 pitch 2-speed gearbox plus the 0.8 pinoin set for the R40 centax..........the rest of the parts can be purchase via rcmodel.com.hk or your LHS and of course TOWER.
Hey Rookie,

just for you personnal knowledge. The 0.8 pitch two speed is available to the US. I got one from towerhobbies http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...I=HPIC8717&P=K and installed it. I didn't tried it yet though.

That's exactly the fix that fastharry is describing. The strip tightens up the fit between the plastic and metal so the tie rod doesn't get smashed in.

Ah, no...its called "THE NUT".....I was talking about the reverse NUTS that prevent the ball joint stripping.....go to their website and look carefully..........and I know what is "THE FIX" and "THE NUT"......

I might be wrong, but even though you can find one from hardware store, you can only do 1 side only, the other side is REVERSED thread.....thats why BMI has custom made "THE NUTS", one of the nut is reverse threaded.....and that is something you cannot find in hardware store.

Don't forget, the R40 upright turnbuckle are those center adjustable one, that means both thread are in 2 different directions....

If that is a known problem of the R40, please direct that information to BMI (since you are local with them) and have them to made a set JUST for R40.....cause so far there are more then 1 person have the same problem....I remembered when NTC3 came out, everyone are having the exact same problem untill we saw all the TEAM ASSICATE factory driver are having those special made NUTS on their NTC3 and no one know where they got those.....untill BMI made one for the public.
