I just checked out that website. Saw some interesting stuff.

Seems hara has his own chassis.

Heres what I got.



With purple vivid high rigid ジƒ…ラシャーシ in sharper running.
Approximately, it cannot overlook either the light weight conversion of 20 g.

Not the best translation but it says its 20g lighter. The question is over the superchassis or standard?

It says also on the front page duralmin. So is it duraluminum?

Here is what I got for the engine mount.

Aluminum one somatotype engine mount

#90110 aluminum one somatotype engine mount XXYEN 3000

You can obtain smooth revolution and the extension by improving the mount rigidity of the engine.



-- So im guessing they say this smooths out vibration perhaps from high rpms? I dont understand that one.

Yeah they come with the graphite arms on the r40. I just got my set the other day. They are awaiting the 2004 kit.

I heard they are more brittle...but we will see.

Does anyone have the part numbers to the .8 gears, spurs and pinions? HPI website sucks to look those part numbers up.. I'm not looking for just the stock gears either, but those part numbers would help also..

Thanks....

well i guess the one piece mount smoothes out the vibration of the engine. the more contact area it has could offer enchanced cooling. Also it could aid in taking the engine out process/ adjusting gear mesh.here the link again for u guys to see it on the site

the chassi seems to have the same design as the super chassi. It may be stronger or stiffer but i doubt it will be 20g lighter than the super chassi. But it could be who knows

I raced with an HPI employee last December with the Hara Chassis. He told me it was just a purple anodised super chassis.

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.
It comes with the 2 gear rear diff. Well all my 2004 editions have anyways.

Nice find. These are the Hara parts that I use, except for the chassis. The chassis is just like the HPI super chassis. These parts are ULTRA high quality.
