Yep I realise not all do this, but just something to be aware of. If it does not move then you are lucky

Most definately. Heh. Anyone running the lola bodies on their R40s? I've seen the body in my LHS and would like to try one, but I think it would be nice if I had a rear floating mount. Do the stock body mounts work fine or best to get the other one? If anything I may just stick to TC bodies, but just wanted to know.

1. I have had 3 HPI flywheels now and every one of them has had a pin come loose. You should always give each pin a bash before using it.

2. I forgot that I changed to the Mugen clutchnut on my old clutch. When using the HPI one the clutch nut self adjusts, not a good thing. Either change to a mugen one or put some loctite on the HPI one. Mine adjusted itself twice, so much so that it undid the clutch nut.

Seems like I had the same problem a few others have had. After doing the above mine is fine now.

I have tried a variety of tires on my R-40, but I still can't tell which are better for the surface (parking lot). What's the best configuration for parking lot action?

You need to use a stopwatch and time your practice laps. Do 10 laps or so with each set of tires. I'm not really consistant enough to get a good reading with a stop watch so I just use whatever gives me the best control.

Just make sure that the CG is as low as possible, maybe 4 1/2mm in the front and 5mm in the rear. the rear toe in at 2.5 to 3 to the inside and get a negative camber from 1 to 2.5
good luck!!
