$260 for the kit
atleast $180 on the engine
atleast $85-$107 for the header and tuned pipe
any HPI body $22

almost $600 USD

I'm taking into consideration that you already have the radio, servos, and equipment...

these 2 will make a great difference by themselves, you can later get all the graphite parts because roughly you will spend:
another $54 USD on the LW tranny
about $30 USD for the LW shafts

It's the MUGEN MRX4. For now I got the R40 shock towers, and stuff to replace the damaged areas. Now I'm ready to roll again. The integy parts weren't in stock and were the wrong numbers so the order was cancelled. No worries. Today I dropped about $206 for everything in this pic.

With the body on. I used the rear mounts for front and the other mouts for the shock tower. Good thing the body wasn't so beat up from the wreck.

nice shots HARK!
I saw some graphite under the shocks, do those work in order to raise your shocks higher or what are they for???

Oh sweet they have a good setup on option parts for the R40. Has anyone tried any alloy arms or anything suspension wise alloy.

Also what is the diff between the hpi graphite mid-brace and the hpi graphite mid-brace flex type.

The graphite weighs less than the aluminum stuff.

Klander- Those small graphite pieces raises the shock a bit to allow it to have that 8th setup like. It's really cool. The setting is permanent. The other holes are for screws. Right now I pushed the 8th settign aside because I am more focused on a real car, shopping, clothes and new sneakers. What I will do instead is invest in that Rody engine I saw at the LHS, but that will be way later. Right now my Mugen is great and when it runs, it's reliable and awesome. I got new plugs to test in it as well as the new shock layout. I also have spyder tires so I will do some testing too. They are dish rims and I'll be running those instead of spokes. I'm really tired of cleaning between the rims. The dish rims are more durable as well.

***Again, my order was cancelled for the integy parts so I guess I'll just run the stock shocks for now, because the aluminum ones don't make that much of a difference in handling; just durability. I can vouch for that. My ride handles better than my friends R40 who has all other HPI parts on it, because mine is setup better. I now have the graphite shock towers and gonna do some tuning. Gotta get the MT12 running good so away we go to Floyd Bennett field to race and join up with Fast Harry at Nanuet, NY. VIVA LA R40! HERE WE COME RACERS!!

BTW, anyone run the foam bumper with the Lola body on? I tried that with mine and it keeps the front end off the ground a bit.

Yes - Miter the perimeter of the bumper ( slope ) to match the slope of the Lola body nose. I have a spare foam bumper I use when I run the Lola body.
