Default Front lower suspension mount

AMG, would be very gratefull if you could scan the supplement, seems I either lost mine or wasn't included, although I don't recall ever having seen one. Cheers

Damn I cant find my 2004 supplements. Did yours come with a normal manual with supplementary sheets, or a 2004 specific manual...............? I will keep looking.

Check this picture of a 2004, its in the lower position.........

mine came with supplementary sheets for one way graphite towers etc, but no mention of fls settings or any other settings for that matter.

While we're on the topic of meager instruction manuals the rear diff ball bearings fit into adjustable mounts, stock setting is vertical, have you any idea what these are for?

Oh no, he doesn't know anything about the hobby. Sry for misinforming you. LOL. I just said he is from there. Not sure what part, but I'll ask him.

Performula- I agree the purple chassis has got to go. However when I ding mine up a bit more I'll get it. The Oneway diff and solid rear axle are coming in.

OK HARK, no problem!!! Are you going to place the oneway, or the solid axle in the front, or are you going to use the the oneway in the front and the solid axle in the rear?? I'm just asking because mine is set up with the solid axle in the front and the stock diff in the rear... I hope I didn't misslead you into thinking I had the solid axle in the rear ok....

Naw, I knew you had it in the front. I just wanted to test out that setup with both items. My car moves pretty quick regardless, but it does feel a bit heavy. Not that it's a problem, but eh still. I'm ordering stuff little by little since I have a real car on the way. My friend got the LW chassis from Bruckners for $64, while Tower has it for $74+. I'll compare how much my LHS can get it for and if it's less than tower I'll do it.

Hi Guys,

Can anyone tell me where I can order some spur/pinion (0.8) for light weight 2 speed? The stock light weight 2 speed came with gears that's a little too tall for our track... so I need to lower them for more acceration. Thank you.

Towerhobbies has them now , as well as rcmart has all the hpi gears. Tower is cheaper, but you might need to search by part number. the latest 2005 catalog has the parts listed clearly on the r40 pages new option part section.
