The MRX4 is Mugen. I decided to stay with the R40 for now. Gonna need to help mom with some of the bills so I'd rather atleast be able to race the 10th sedan and then get a real car.

Yeah hpiracing.com has all the proceed parts in their online shop and delta racing supports the proceed.

Also here is a photo for comparison. More to come.

Photos dont fully show how much the cars are alike. But if you go back and forth youll see the similarities. Pretty much the R40 is a smaller proceed.

But as you can see those tires are mamoth compared to the tourer.

Havent run it yet. I plan on getting something together for it though. Probably will be cheap.

Are you looking to race or you just want to stick with HPI?

from the looks of it it seams like it could be the size of a serpent impact m2 235mm, but maybe it is slightly bigger??? besides the engine... I mean the dimensions of the car

8th scale onroads are like 265-275mm wide. 10th onroad are 235mm minium and some like the NEO are 246mm out of the box. They are noticably larger than 10th scales, but not commonly raced. I'm gonna see if the parts came in as well as the engines.

Klander- I can do the 8th piece by piece, but for now the R40 is cool enough to run. All goes depending on how I can sell everything else and keep my two fav cars then maybe yeah. For now it's just to wait for it.

HARK I know what you mean... The R-40 is enough for now, but soon I may be getting into business with some friends and build a track, so far I have no idea how much $$$ we will need to build the track, but for now I'll enjoy bashing with the R-40...

I'm good with the brush. Give me a minute alone and I'll get 90% of the debris off. The rest I use the motor spray to get into them tight spots.

That Proceed looks very nice. Someone added a few Delta part mark parts to that car.

R-40 racers; The two best things you can do to improve the preformance of your cars is to add the alum. shocks and front one way.
