The carbon fiber side flex brace is the piece by the belt with the belt tensionizer, right?
Thanks
That would be it, The graphite piece that mounts the side belt tensioner. But I think HPI calls it the lightweight mid brace.

ok cool. What other upgrades do you recommend other than the lightened 2 speed, chassis and cf shock towers. I heard the lightened screws are good but is it worth the $65?
Thanks

screws don't make it fast and if you lose some or strip them i don't know if you can buy just a few or a hole set

I have heard that the R40 runs better on turned tires or used tires for that matter is this true

Racer- You mean trued tires. Basically your restoring the surface area of the foam tire and also cutting a clean leveled area. I run some old GRP foams that have been left out in the air for a long time and traction is pretty good to me. I like the way it runs, but will try the stock tires as they are great as well.

Whoadie-Some go to RC mart, but I just ordered them from my LHS. Prices are the same or cheaper.
