I drove a stock car last week..same suspension set up as mine(incl. towers).,.....but no lite weight parts...I could'nt believe the difference in the cars.....

mine felt so responsive.......

And because my motor blew at a race last week in the r40,I was forced to use the tc3 as a back up........I hated driving it.......the whole race I'm yelling at the car to turn......
Yep when you start looking for tenths and hundreths then these things begin to matter more. My car is as light as is legal and it can hang with the best cars out there. Why do you think Hara and co developed these new parts

I have tried a few new things with my car which seem to have worked out nicely.

If you lay the front shocks right over to the actual tower mounting holes it can help stop your car traction rolling from the front wheels. My car was flipping right off the track as soon as I turned in at high speed. This helped stop this.

The Kyosho blue springs for the V1R also seem to work well on the rear. They are between the black and gold, but they are much more progressive in feel. They have a heap of coils and the coils start to touch as they compress which is making the spring become stiffer.

Also on a smooth track the hard shock bladders seem to lock the car onto the surface better.

(1) Forget about the R40 from rcmart or rcmolel, the first, from Rcmart, that R40 is JAPAN version of the R40.....they came with alum shocks and front 1-way, but still, that is NOT the R40 2004 spec......it is just the version of stock R40 they sell in Japan and HK only....

(2) R40 2004 spec is 30822.....and like FastHarry said, you can contact (by phone) Jet hobby and get them to ship 1 over to USA for around $380 US (Fastharry can verify that...) even thought it is $130 over the stock R40 kit in usa....but you will have almost all GOOD and NECESSARY options that R40 will need....if you buy them seperately, it cost a lot more then $130.

Were you the one that got the LAST 2004 spec right when I was so ready to order mine...? I called Terencel and he said he sold the last one (like several hours before).........and he said he won't get more 2004 spec cause no one is really interested that in HK (except those in USA)

not really a R40 question but....I just replaced an OS .12 TR with a Trinity Pico XP12 in my car. So far, I can tell the Trinity mill is much more powerful than the bullet proof OS I had. However, I absolutely hate the carb that the Picco has. There is an extension on the bottom of the throttle slide that gets blocked by the fuel tank. (Yes, I have adjusted the carb angle 8 ways from Sunday.)

Will the OS carb (which I love) a direct bolt on to the Trinity block?

Thanks!

I doubt it........but you can just try to remove the OS carb and put it onto the Picco....
Have you try to rotate the ball end of the Picco carb in order to get away from the tank...?

I believe the .12tr has an OS 10 J carb which is a 13mm mount. I think the Picco engine has a 12mm mount. Get a set of cheap calipers and check it. You may be able to buy an adapter sleeve to suit or a dremel and silicon would work too

I have a .12 picco with one of those carbon fibre carbs on it and it fits ok on the R40 although I don't like the carb either. Turn the carb body then adjust the horn on the carb, it will fit.
