If I had a chance, I would get the ones from Kawahara, but I have no idea on where to buy them from. Does anyone know?

control centre carries kawahara, but just make sure they dont overcharge you on S&H.

speedtech also carries kawahara. i've ordered from steve before, real nice guy so definitely support his shop!

just FYI, the finish on the kawahara woven graphite is more of a matte finish compared to the shiny stuff HPI has.

A.W. If fingernail pressure is a test, I would say the Delta disc is a bit harder. Which kinda makes sense. I don't know what it's made of, but I was told it is expensive material.

Default Option parts

I was wondering wether or not the floating rear body mount is going to be availble anytime soon?

That's make sense, since most of 1/8th Off road cars now use Aluminum Clutch Shoe.

I know thats what they show in the website. But the R40's we have had come with front oneway and threaded alloy shocks.
does the R40 really come with the front oneway and threaded alloy shocks??

it would be great if it did (and save me a lot of cash to spend on other options).

There are 2 different models. One has the one way and threaded shocks and the other doesn't

The version with front one-way and threaded aluminum shocks is only sold in Japan. You may be able to get it online from a Hong Kong dealer though.

I think(and I hope) HPI is working on that....I think all the ball cups need to be re done.... all Mine showed play when new..... and the rear links are way too soft...

Yeah I know, but neither have the r40 option parts. I haven't seen any state side sites that carry them. oh well, it looks like I may just have to order them from HK. I just like the position of the front shock mount.

I have not checked any prices of R40 in HK...but after the shipping costs and the extra cost of the kit itself, it may only be like 10 or 20 bucks more to get everything from the LHS, and you will not have to wait...

I don't think I'll mind. Seems like its best to sell a car with dual diffs. That setup simply fits more tracks.

HPI should however at least offer the kit with the one-way and aluminim shocks here in the states. That way if people want those thing with the kit, they can get them.
