Use two large pair of pliers with just the right amount
of torque. Since the gears may be seized up you may
have to tap it a few times against the pliers before you
start twisting.


jscamry- Are you referring to the bumper brace. If so
then it's a 3-racing part. Hope that helps.

i gotta admit for as much as a .12 costs now i almost sold the car and cut my losses but i knew as soon as it was sold i would want it back

as long as i dont use the extra hp to run into the boards it can possibly do anything but help

and i dont think i'll run into too much stuff well i'll try not too

too bad we got rained out today i coulda prooved it

i shouldnt get too excited though remember the last race when i lightened the car up it was running great in practice then in the qualifiers everything screwed up and i had a horrible day

tommorrow luckily i am going to get my mbx5 out and head up to PA to race offroad since the weather wouldnt cooperate today

a little rain wont stop us from offroading in fact it usually brings traction up

Hey fellas whats up...

R40 is still rolling well. Haven't finished out of the top three since I've had it. I've taken some heavy hits and still haven't broken anything (knock on wood). I don't know if I've gotten caught on my servo yet, but its still working, so if I did I guess the stock brace is doing its job.

I think I finally made that 'final' adjustment I needed to really make the car fly. I got the centax just right so that my car really launches and isn't getting left off the line.

Only thing that has me concerned though is that I'm experiencing brake fade in the long 10minute A-mains. I don't run drag brake, so thats not causing any excess heat build up. But i do run on a track that requires braking a lot. Anyone else having this problem?

Anyhew....just checking in on the R40 thread to see if anything new was happening...
what kind of competition are you up against?..

glad you stopped by..

can you help me out with this?
I did notice one thing.........Even though the screws felt like they were tight,and bottomed out,they weren't......so they could really be 4 turns out,know what I mean?....BUT,I don't want you to crank on them,cause I don't want you to strip them....

My screws at 3 turns out do not pull apart,unless I pull real hard.....Those rebuild sets aren't in the distributors yet,but HPI does have them in CA.....Take the shoes apart,and screw in the allen heads WITHOUT the spring and brass washer on them...this way you can see the screw coming out the bottom,and you wont strip the shoes by putting to much pressure on them...Then,assemble the shoes.. they should bottom out with the springs on with no problem...I think screwing them into the shoes with the springs,AND cutting the threads and the same time,makes it harder to get a feel when they hit bottom..leave the big allens and silver balls to the last step.....Make sure you don't put the shoes on backwards like I did...

Thanks Fastharry... they're out of stock right now... but, I'll try back from time to time.

BTW, if anyone is interested, I have an advertising code for Tower Hobbies... $20 off $50 order... that's a pretty good deal. I already purchased a bunch of goodies using the code. If anyone wants it, just hollar.
