it go's on the throttle servo, the light weight radio tray has the c/f cut so there is nothing next to the throttle so the receiver can be brought up so it does not hit the track you have to cut the c/f if you don't have the light weight tray

Your best bet is to look at the over seas shops. Its one of those "coming soon" things that never quite 'came' to the US. Most of the other hop ups have made it here. But I haven't seen that one yet.

nope they dont have no lightweight receiver casing....has anyone taken out the reciever box and installed their rx on the servo? how much weight do you reduce from doing so? also has anyone taken out the battery box? Hara's car is like that........

- Both Hollow shafts #33401 & #33402
- Graphite front and rear shocktowers #73089 & #73090
- Full set of Ti screws (#Z368 for the HPI set, Yokomo also makes machine-thread Ti screws, and you can use aluminum screws in low-stress areas to save some grams)
- Titanium turnbuckles (two 4 x 40mm, two 4-40 x 24mm)
- Super chassis #73924
- Light top deck (#33408, must order from Asia or just remove the receiver box, see below)
- 0.8 module gearbox #87173
- Heat sink engine mount #33405
- Graphite suspension arms (not sure if part # is different, the arms have been updated since initial release - if you have 2 sway bar mounts on the rear arm you have the new arms)
- Titanium pivotballs (#33426 for 2 or #33427 for 8)
- Titanium hingepins (not sure of brand/part #)
- Graphite steering drag plate (not sure of brand/part #)
- Graphite lower front suspension mounts (not sure of brand/part #)
- Graphite side brace #73104 or #73105 (thinner version)
- Lightweight HPI battery (#33410, order from Asia make your own, see below)
- Remove upper battery cover
- Front One-way #75026
- 9550 steering servo, 3003 throttle servo (or any low-profile servos)
- Airtronics (Sanwa) 211 RX or and micro-size receiver
- don't use the aluminum rear brace or upper deck mounts (that's my suggestion)

You can also save 40g by making a battery pack from 5 AAA NiMH batteries in 2 + 3 shape instead of a normal battery pack. Mount in the normal position.

You can also mount the antenna on the upper deck and attach the receiver to the upper deck or main chassis using silicone sealant or fiber strapping tape. This allows you to remove the receiver box.

Use an AMBrc personal transponder instead of a normal hand-out transponder. Instead of the plastic mount, you can use spare Lexan to mount it to the upper deck (might save a few grams if you don't use too much glue to hold it in place) or use silicone windscreen seal to attach it to the lower deck (next to the lightweight battery pack).
found this looking back this might help some of you

Wondering if any R40 racers will be racing here http://www.oneeighthracers.com/
in The Great Lakes Challenge. I would like meet some of you. There are very few R40's here and I've been reading and learning from this site. Haven't posted much. Seems every time I come up with a question it's been asked and answered in the past 100 pages.

My R40 weighs 1730-1740 with body, tires, transponder etc ready to run. I actually am still running the receiver box. If you can get the list of hopups that I posted a few pages back then you can get a similar weight. I would recommend that you keep the RX where it is in the box, unless you like them to get dirty and get smashed. I ran my Kyosho RX in a similar positions to Haras and I was always nervous about it getting broken. Remember that Hara gets free RX units

Unhappy 'Break-In' Postponed 'til 8/15/04

Yep Harry's right... Unfortunately we have a 90% chance of heavy rain headed our way and decided to wait until the evening weather report was released before we made a final decision.

Tomorrow's scheduled Big Apple 'Break-In' race we regretfully have to postpone until Sunday 8/15/04.

Please accept our sincerest appologies for any inconvienience this may have caused any one.
