My car (even a brand new car) will never look like that even after a 5 minutes qualifier.....

A spray bottle full of denatured alcohol would clean it up really quick . If your'e really in a hurry, use some compressed air to help speed evaporation and to blow off any remaining dirt and tire dust.

Thanks guys.........well, it is not my first day to run NITRO car, but what AMAZED me is................how LITTLE of a impact or scratch or whatever that stucked on HARA's ride after an 1 hour race....look at his body, I only spot a black mark at the lower passenger side front spoiler.......thats all.

And that RD Logic pipe..............like new, and that means he didn't touch any curb or other cars at all, look at that tip.....no scratch.

Thad..........if we can get more support or head up from you more offen in Rctech, I am sure the R40 will get more respect from the rest of the track............

I still have ppl asked my why I downgraded myself from NTC3/710 to R40 and those who said "Hara can win national with a Toy's R Us RC car...." thing all the time...........

I just received a set from hexscrews yesterday. so far I like the quality as well as the strength of the screws.
one thing to keep in mind though is that these are steel screws and will rust if run through water also won't do much to reduce weight but they are really strong I also got a set for my savage and so far they are holding up great no stripped heads even after repeated use.

If you can afford the HPI Titanium screws set for R40, get it........I wish I could, and I know it is better, it is not because it is TI or lighter, they are self taping screws........not like RCscrez or others that are machine scerws.......which will take FOREVER to remove one screws.....

My car came with the Rcscrewz, but I replaced them but using original HPI R40 self taping.............much better grib then machine screws and repairing is much faster.

But roughtly $60 US for a set of Titanium screws are kinda pricey.

I think itís funny that youíre so impressed at the cleanliness of the car.

You need to understand that some people are brand loyal. Some people like AE and Losi just because the think is all made in the USA. Some just like a certain brand because that was the manufacture of there first RC car. Just shrug off the haters and always know that the car you are driving is the back to back national championship winning car.

The hpi screwset is the best period. Mine are 6 months old and all are still perfect condition. Plus they are ti. Plus they are exactly the same as the kit screws.

Hey Thad are we going to see some more tuning info for the R40? The manual info is very low on detail. You have a 2 time national and 1 time world champ in your stable, who also has articles in the RC World Japanese magazine. How about an article on the HPI site with Haras tuning tips.

Am I mistaken or did I see titanium wood screws in the HPI kit?

Hey Thad, it looks like Hara's engine was a NovaMax. Did Maxy make additional mods to the engine?
