i'm still waiting for my lw 2speed to show up should be a few more days.

It was a blast to get this car running again after sitting for so long, engine fired up on the second try, nothing like the sound of a nitro engine firing up.
Naaah! I wont, I just thought maybe I could show off on sunday, but now I guess I wont say anything... Itll be a surprise... lol

CW - delays the engagement (requires more RPM to engage).

Hello All,
I am happy to say I will be joining the R40 ranks soon with the R40 2004 Edition! I got the ACER bearing set for it and some Hitec digital servos. I even got a DaHellion body for it painted like a loaf of WonderBread (Thanks Danny)! I can't wait to get it now, but it's got a long boat ride to go! I have to say I like the community here and think I will enjoy the car. I might even try to make an HPI Challenge race this year. Well will see how many questions I have when I get it!

Later
Daniel

hey you guys I had a problem with the
HPI Clutch Adjust Nut R40 it came loose and the manual says to put it in .05mm to .08mm but I screwed mine about 1mm in...
what does that do? Does it create tension against the adjust spring and if I screw it in more what happens... I'm a little confused...

I'm assuming that it came loose while you were running the car. You can use a bit of loctite on the threads to keep it tight. The further you tighten the nut, the later the clutch will engage. The spring presses the clutch shoes against the flywheel. When the motor revs up, the weights behind the shoes press outward, forcing the shoes against the clutchbell.

Put enough sims behind the washers so that when you pull the clutch bell outward it moves very little. Then adjust the adjuster nut about 1-3mm down. That's about how far I have mine down and it moves from lightly tapping the trigger. With stock servos it stops very quick too. I love this car!

Im using 4 washers like you said 2 copper and 2 silver... I gues I should use lokctite on that clutchnut. So how far should the clutch nut be .05 .08 or is 1mm ok? for starters?

yep exactly... yesterday when I was trying it... i asume because I had it all put apart, I tightened about 1mm in... will this cause the clutch to engage at higher rpm? I would like my car to jump at the press of the trigger... should I use one more copper washer for this?

Also, with the stiff spring on the clutch (mugen silver); it is possible to get it too tight so the shoe can't put enough pressure on the bell to move the car. Keep it between .8-1.5 mm.
