Don't get either. The car will be too loose. Try the rear solid axle in the front though. Some swear by it sayin it pulls better in the turns.

Default R40 durability

Guys, will you help me on this. I was told that R40's plastic
parts are brittle. They break easily. Specially the front
arms. Is this true? Any comments?

The front one way diff locks under acceleration, but when braking will keep spinning. Therefore you only have braking in the rear. It helps in cornering speed on those large turns, but not the tight turns. The R40 is really sturdy. I've had some crashes, but didn't break a thing. Infact with my high ground clearance, the chassis isn't even scratched yet. LOL!

It's fast, I have raced mostly against serpent's, 705's and 710's and all of them carry the Rb engines or the new OS .18tz 5 port, but I'm happy with my WASP. On straights is tough and in corners it works great. I have not seen many people with team orion engines, but they are easy to tune, so I recommend it!!!

here is a pic of my new M3 body... I will try it on sunday and compare it with the 350z in aerodinamics...

On the solid axle, normal diff case and the oneway, I have tried the normal diff case but need a high torque servo to turn under throttle. The one way works great on tight turns, but you have to slow down way too soon, other cars can get you before the turn, and on sunday I will try the solid rear axle in the front and will let you know of the outcome ok...

here is the picture

the wasp can handle those engines, i have a video clip kicking some serpents butt and he has the .18TZ with dyno tested 2.28 BHP against my WASP engine with only 1.45 BHP

Talking R40 durability

frederic: If you hit anothercar, a wall, or anything at high speeds, even the aluminum will bend, so it depends on it's durability.
I have had many crashes with other cars and we mostly just spin, but when I got hit on the side, my pipe got bent, so I had to get a new one. One time I hit the sidewalk and had to replace the bumper, the suspension mounts and the front graphite tower, but like everyone say... it depend what you hit to see it's durability, but when it comes to performance, speed and fun, the R-40 tops them all

First of all how long is the straight of the track your setting for?
is it bumpy?
are the turns really tight that you have to use the breaks?
are you using the original set up clutchbell 16T + 19T with the spurs at 48 and 45?
are you gonna use the oneway or the regular diffcase?
