Nitroracer I ran my cables around the batery case and into the receiver box, since I have a small kopropo receiver they fit in nicely. try it.

Where did you get the r-40 kit with al the hop ups?
I still need to buy the chasis, the .08 LW 2 speed and the titanium screws and pivot ball

klanderman- I bought the car used from a guy at the hobby shop. Its in great condition so how can I say no. I think Il will run the wires around the battery pack, its a good idea.

r40 spider gears and savage are the same, THIS IS A FACT, i use them interchangeably. When i damage the savage gear, i use teh r40 as spares.

What's the weight difference between the normal 2 speed tranny and the LW 2 speed tranny?

I know the chasis weighs 20 grams less than the stock, and the titanium screw weigh 40 % less than stock...

Aside from being lighter it was said the LW 2speed has a smaller pitch and you will notice a higher top end speed. It also allows a larger selection of gearing I believe. Gonna get mine in a little bit at the LHS along with the LW shafts and other stuff. What's everyone running for diff oils if using the stock gear diffs?

Harkonnen Im using light grease in the rear diff case and I have a oneway bearing infront.
I'll probably get the LW chasis first... then the 2 speed an later the titanium screws...

Does anyone know with the stock configuration how fast is the r-40 with: let's say a .12 novarossi engine running around 35,000 to 38,000 RPM's, novarossi pipe just as an example?

The motor mount I think is a Hara product
stock two spd to .8 two spd with any nove .12 your talking about 3 or 4 mph
go with the .8 before the chassis

1 queston from a new r40 owner.
The carbon fiber side flex brace is the piece by the belt with the belt tensionizer, right?
Thanks
