But the hara version is about to come out in the US. Which is going to be totally different and even more enhanced. So I would just tell your friend to hold off.

Thanks Artificial... I noticed that the kit does not include the aluminum shocks, where can I get those? I heard they are lighter and more reliable, but that's just what I heard, my stock shocks are awesome

The aluminum shocks I believe are included. Dont know why that page didnt say so but the kit is showing them with it.

I went ahead and edited the list to show that they are included. Im sure there are a few other things not shown on the list.

They are very smooth shocks. I have like 10 sets.

AWESOME!!! what do you think or heard that the HARA version will have that the 2004 kit doesn't?

I guess the Hara version will include all of the above plus something extra, right?

cool I can't wait to see it, I might get one myself. I have the 2003 version with all the hop ups less aluminum shocks and the chassis as I had a massive accident and broke the tip off it, so I guess I'm also missing the LW chassis since I went and changed it for the stock one...

Hara version will have relocated gas tank , new designed gas tank , new chassis design. To where the battery slot will be removed so the chassis will be more rigid and stiff.

Along with a lot of other options. Its not really known yet but we do know the 2005 has this and the 2005 pro4 and hara edition are close so the r40 2005 and hara should also be pretty similiar.

the only thing changed is the weight distribution....thats from the chassis and top deck.....the gas tank is also changed....you will be able to convert the old cars......everything else is the same...but obviously they are now including hop ups in the package as well.....

Ill be receiving my 2004 Edition kit soon.

Im going to be pretty much keeping it stock except im going to add to it during the build.

CF Side Brace
CF Steering Brace
CF Front Lower suspension Hinge Pin
CF Battery Brace
CF Bumper Brace
Titanium Brake Disc
Graphite Arms
Graphite wheel hex hubs
Mugen Grey Pad
Steel roll handle bar

Thats about all I can think of thats worthwhile upgrading. Im not sure if the 2004 has the one-way or 4-bevel. So well see on that. If not add those into the mix as well.

If anyone else has any suggestions let me know.

You're going to replace the locking aluminum hex nuts with the carbon slip-on hex nuts? Are they really that much lighter.

Default look at these parts for the r40

i was searching the web and i stumbled on this siteheres the link . Seems to have parts that ppl have been looking for the r40.
these look to be titanium king pins, titanium hing pin set, and that one piece mount. Seems to have part numbers but i dont see a area where u can buy stuff. maybe u could use the part numbers to search with hope it help at all.

Yeah I really dont know what the benefit of the aluminum is. I never figured that out or really looked into it. Im guessing they might reduce slop or just dont come off. But ive never had problems with mine ever.

They are heavier though and oddly enough there is a graphite part so im going to go with the graphite. It is much lighter.

I would have used my racer2 hubs but they were just slightly smaller.

Hmm, I thought I used my racer2 carbon hex's on one of my R40's. The advantage the the clamping style is not losing your out drives in a crash or having your hex and pin fall off durring a quick tire change. The plastic hexes will tend to round after a while causing it to slip in the rim and strip out your rim. I had this happen on Sunday. The hex was half way turned in the rim so the tire was really hard to remove. It didn't strip out the rim, but now I have to keep an eye on that tire. I haven't had any problems with the aluminum hexes yet.

Its pretty cool, the hexes are included on the arm trees so when you get the carbon arms, the hexes come with them. At least thats the way it was with the RS4 series. I'm not 100% sure its like that for the R40 now. Brain Fade. Can't seem to remember.... Age is getting to me. Now I'm going to have the check.
