Default Question

I am thinking of getting back in the nitro scene (my last nitro was the NRS4-2 with the Racer 2 conversion). Is the R40 2004 Spec worth getting for $350 or should I just get what is available here in the US...for about $100 less? Any input would be appreciated.

If you mean, can you use them to raise the camber link arm from the rear knuckle, then yes. If you want to put them around the pivot ball, between the knuckle and the suspension arm then, why bother. I initially went looking for them when I lost a spacer from a rear shock.

Stock (US verions) is good to do some local track racing...but still, you will need some upgrade here and there.....
In order for you to upgrade piece by piece and get equal to the 2004 spec from the stock R40 US spec...you might need to spend easily $200 more (over the $250 R40 kits)...

The 2004 spec is around $350 plus 35 shipping from HK....$385...but overall, 2004 spec will get you a BIG RACE ready R40 (very close to HARA's car) and still, about close to $100 cheaper compare to upgrade from stock R40.

Default R40 Turnbuckle slipping?

Need help!

The rear turnbuckles on my R40 tend to "slip" ( OK, maybe I tag a board every once in a while ). Even when I run a clean race the turnbuckles seem to "change" adjustment. It might be possible the downforce in a severe turn just might cause the thread to " slip " - but don't know for sure.

Anyway, anyone had this problem before? What is the solution?

The R40 kit uses M4 x 20mm turnbuckles. Where can I get the the titanium turnbuckles I see on Hara's car? What is the PN?

Thanks in advance!
John

Yes this does happen, usually in a crash. It only happens very rarely on my car. I think if you have had it happen enough the ballcups will strip, try replacing them and see how that goes.

Thanks! I'll try it

Anyone know the part number for the purple titanium turnbuckles for the R40? I assume they are still 4mm ?

use these ball cups....

http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...00&FVPROFIL=++


along with these spacers from the PRO 4(to raise the ball cup to the proper height)..

http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXGPB3&P=Z


and you'll be fine.......use the stock turnbuckles...they are easier to turn than the PRO 4 or lunsford 4 sided rods...
