Default Back and Front Belts

Any of you guys having problems with the current short belts from HPI?

They seem to strip and wear faster than other makes. I change each every 20-25 tanks!!!

Understand that HPI Japan is aware and are working on a new urethane or kevlar belt which should be out this month, similar to Mugen's i was told.

Is it available anywhere yet and anyone tried it yet?

Maybe instead of changing belts, you should change the car to a Mugen MTX3

Here are pics of the urethane belts:





They are not released yet but soon.

However I must note that my car was purchased in January and I have run 3-4 gallons of fuel on the original belts. So I personally have not found that my belts have stripped or worn.

Gee you are hilarious. Shame that the Mugen came in BEHIND the R40 in 2003 and 2004 ROAR nats. Perhaps you need to change the Mugen for the R40?

Default Belts and Pulleys

AMG, yeah thanks for the pix.

I guess it's the darn stones off the track here...

But really compared to others mine seems to wear faster and takes the pulley too!!

Wonder if using the alu pulleys would make sense?

Yep I believe you. I think I might just be lucky for some reason, I cant really explain it. But if Japan has come up with the new belts there obviously seems to be some sort of issue.

The pulleys definately seem to be a little softer than my old Kyosho V1R pulleys thats for sure.

Thad Garner,

What do the rebound numbers on Hara's setup sheet mean? Are those numbers off a hudy droop gauge measured off the ball stud mount? And what exactly is 0mm bump stop?

I'm also wondering what this measurement means. It can be viewed in a number of ways. This also applies to the 90degree front sway bar setting. I would consider zero to be upright but the setup sheet shows 90degrees to be upright?

I also heard that there are now no HPI distributors in Australia. Looks like extra business for Tower.

I have to 2nd that, the original R40 belts are NOT the best I can find or experienced.........however, I am still using the original 3 belts, they are all worn out, stretched longer then used to be, but still...............they are usable, just doesn't look that good and you are see those liner coming out from the side of the belt..

Once we have the updated belt in state, I will replace them all, afterall, R40 is not the easiest car to replace belts, not to mention, all 3 at once, it will take hours....

0mm bump stop basically means that we didnít use the set screw to limit the up travel of the suspension, only the down travel (droop/rebound stop) see attached picture.

You serious? The 3 belt change should take 20 minutes tops!
