Puma,

I used the following at the rear:

3mm Lower Hingepin Front Spacer
2mm Lower Hingepin Rear Spacer

so far, nothing to dislike on it's handling or it's ability to handle.


However, I have noticed on my kit the need to glue (w/ silicon or something like it) the king pin ball nuts. They came loose on the front while I was using the car to break in a motor.. so it didn't take much for them to work themselves loose. Also, the rear camber links seem to have more play than I'd like.

Has anyone else seen what I have or is it just my kit?

I agree the rear camber links have more play than I would like.
Thanks for the heads up on the king pin nuts. it might have something to do with the uprights being pre-threaded.

I also heard the thrust bearing (B033) has two different inner dimensions for the washers and should be installed with the bigger washer facing the motor. is this true?

I didnt like the idea of using shims (Z695/Z825) to set clearance for the clutchbell, so I shimmed it from behind the flywheel.

I have a Novarossi TOP installed, turning the carb to clear the gas tank wasnt a problem. the idle screw doesnt hit the motor. I'm more worried about being able to fit a screwdriver in there to adjust it.

If the plastic bumper was going to be that wide, it should have been wider to protect the front wheels better.

I must have not moved it to the right as far.. (just enough to get decent access to the low-speed needle) because I still have plenty when getting to the idle screw.

Good idea on the clutchbell clearance and I'll have to check on the thrust bearing washer..

tinman, I have the U.S. version. The aluminum shocks you see in my pic are from my retired RS4-2. So, I am also looking for the one-way. here's a link for part #s on upgrades:

Default one-way

I just checked hobby people's website, they already have the one-way listed (part#75026) but no price yet to order it, so it wont be long til they or local shops should have them in stock.

Smile Parts

Hi guys

I went to Jet Hobby in Hong Kong today. They just got in a new shipment of R40 parts. I got some pinions and spurs and some spare belts. I'm not really sure if they have the one ways or alloy shocks (I have the racer kit so didn't ask) and and all the parts were still in the big box........ I guess I went to hk on the right day.

From memory their website is www.jethobby.com

P.S. the pinions are all colour coded :-)
