Yep, Hitec and Futaba are negative shift, everybody else is on positive shift.

So does that mean I can use a KO radio with JR or Airtronics receivers? I asked this before because I like the Helios and wanna get rid of my JR R1 but don't want to spend a fortune switching out all my receivers...not to mention they are all synthesized.

I've been trying to download the R40 set-up sheets from HPIRACING but only the top 1/4 page shows and I get an error report. Three computers later and still no luck.

Does anyone have one?
Or a link that works
Maybe you can email to [email protected]
Thanks
Andy

Default Radio Syst Concerns

Thanks Guys for all the valuable thoughts. Very insightful.

Have decided to go for the 3pk with HRS system.

BTW, its funny, back here in Malaysia/Singapore the LHS sells the radios as a package in the original box which includes the gun, extension adaptor and screws, the servos (S9451 x 2), receiver (HRS or PCM), a pair of servo horns and bolts, a receiver swith with Y-connectors and manual. This is the standard package. And besides, Both PCM and HRS packages are going for the same price.

Still need to know whether you guys have problems with 2nd gear engagement on the R40?

Thanks.

Default Camber Link Spacers

Although the manual doesn't show a spacer between the shock tower and the camber link on the back of the car, Hara's setup sheet on HPI shows a 3mm spacer and the photos of his car clearly show it.

Considering his setup uses a 2mm rear spacer on the lower hingpin, I would have thought a 2mm camber link spacer would be the go, but thats beside the point.

Does anyone else use a spacer here?

Really? I thought his Nats setup and most of the other HPI driver setups have used the stock 0 position.
Personally I have found the +2 position adds a lot of stability on bumps.

Well I had my first run on concrete with the R40. I had only ever raced on this track once before in the middle of summer so I had no idea where to start with a setup. I guessed a setup and went from there. My MT12 decided to crap out at the start of the first heat as well.

You can read about the race meet here. http://www.bayside-rc.com/home/html/...article&sid=42 I was running in open gas and my name is Alan Beven.

All in all with the limited track time I had I was pretty happy with the car on rubber. I went with a front diff as well on this track as brakes are pretty much required on the tight layout.
