HarkonnenD: I took your advice and went ahead and ordered the 2 speed tranny LW to see how it handles, I was going to get the chasis also, but spent too much on stock parts just in case I hit a wall again. I can't wait to try the LW 2speed!!!!

When I turn to the left the wheels come back and center perfectly. But when I turn to the right the wheels barley come back maybe like halfway. I cant figure out whats wrong.

Is there anything that is binding the steering movement? Perhaps the servo gears are toast.

Klander-Great! You will love the 2speed. It must be used with the shafts to make an overall difference. The stock 2speed is quite heavy. Plus you car will still be quite fast with it. I love my current setup and don't want another engine at the time.

Default R40 vs. RRR

Have any of you HPI die-hards run a Kyosho RRR? I did electric touring for a few years and now I'm thinking of going Nitro and I think I've narrowed things down to the R40 or the RRR.

As far as weight is concerned the RRR is a lot lighter but if you want character go for the R40!

Disassemble and check the servo saver.

The servo gears should be good. I had the servo in my max for about 2 weeks. When I look at the servo saver what should I be looking at.

You might see a crack in the arm where it attaches to the main post structure. These are plastic parts so you'll want to put them under stress to test to see if it is cracked.

Actually, you might take off the front upper cover plate and do a few checks before you disassenble. With the cover off, hold the wheels and have someone turn the steering left to right and see where all of the "slop" is.

also check the steering brace... It has 2 pivots that screw from the bottom, they are secured by a nut. If they are too tight, the screw scrapes agaist the top bulkhead and that might be your problem. I had that type of problem and what I did is I changed the nuts to a smaller one in height...

Default LW 2speed

HarKonnenD thanx for the pics, I can't wait to try it. One question... on the clutch set up... I screw the allens all the way in and how many turns out to have a good 2nd speed change? as a starting point, I know I'm going to have to do somo tests, but to start how many turns out should I try?

coldfusion: As far as I know the RRR is very light, but I have never driven it. Also kyosho parts are way too expensive for my taste, besides you have a lot of R-40 buffs who love the car and can't complain about it. The only bad review I've seen about the car is how some fuel tanks don't hold the 75cc posted on the box. I love my car, specially because I can get parts for it everywhere I go.
Good luck and let us know what you get.....

I set my as shown in stock. Well since it was kinda hard to tell if the collars had touched the shoe as listed in the manual, I had the screws flush with the opening, then cranked them in another turn. Now the 2speed doesn't engage too early. Becareful when tightening the two screws with spring and collar. You can have them bore right out of the 2speed shoe as I nearly did if you over tighten. Other than that, you'll be ok.

I also vote for the R40. It's a great car with potential.
