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.
I have had it happen only 1 time to me. I think the plastic on those cups are a little soft. My advice is to use Kyosho parts in this area and it wont happen again.

Exclamation About the .8 pitch gear

Hey guys,

I installed the new lightweight two speed transmission (0.8 pitch) and a question popped in my mind while doing it.

Where the heck I can find other spur gear for it.

Checked on a couple of sites ... nothing....

Am I the first one to install it or what?

Wire Handle

Another short one...

I saw on some pictures ...but can't find it anymore.... little handle made of strong wire instead of the big plastic stock one. I really liked them, anyone know where I can find them?

Have you run your car with the new 2 sp?.......Any difference in performance?...Also,what ratio comes with it?.....Close to the stock 2 speed?....

Talking 0.8 Kawahara module gear

if you interested on changing your module gear. kawahara 0,8 module gear may be you best bet. It also reduces weight.

NCC has a neat fix on his car for the rear camber link he has added a tie strap between the tie-rod adjusting nut and the plastic end so in the event of a problem the tie-strap stops the plastic end from sliding further in on the tie-rod

Someone said TOWER is selling it in the future (or even now..) so keep an eye on their site, but most important, DO NOT STRIP any gears (both pinion and spur...) or you are back to 1.0

We had the similar solution like that when our NTC3 had the same problem....a better (nice looking too) way to do is buy those model train use copper or alum tub (forgot what size, but any size that is bigger then the turnbuckle) and cut 2 piece for the turnbuckle....

After the major impact, your ball join got pushed in, but at least, it won't pushed all the way in and have -8 camber....

If the gear chew up that easily, I will be sticking with my 1.0 series. The car is quick enough with the old gears, especially with the motors that I am running. Weight is not that much of an issue with me either (my set-up uses much of the extra weight to my advantage, especially in tight turns on tracks where braking could be an issue).

yes you can mount the rear body posts wider when using the hpi graphite shock tower

the parts needed are extra pieces included in the kit its a body post that screws onto the outer edges of the new hpi shock tower

i think they are from the rs4 if you dont have the extras in the kit
