Yeah maybe sediments from elsewhere blew onto the track with all the wind. I do have an itching to try the Rody in my CD3 though.

Hey guys, finally got a shot of the new mazda6 body on the r40. Its blue streak / pearlescent paint and then sprint white with clear hood and wing. I kinda dig it.



I didnt have much time so I made it simple, as I raced the body the next day. Oddly enough I had people pointing and smiling and someone else commenting on it. I almost didnt understand it at first, cause I see peoples eyes locked on my vehicle smiling and im like whats the big deal, is my cars wheel hanging off? Then I finally figured out they liked the look.

Maybe Ill see a trend of clear hoods at the next races, lol.

SWEET BODY!!

Meh, too bad my R40 chassis is really bent and the stock chassis I got from a friend is totally inaccessible. He tends to use too much blue threadlock and gets the screws all TOO tight. I tried many things but ended up stripping the screw. At this moment gonna run the 8th and CD3 while I wait for him to order me the LW chassis. I think it's time the R40 got some more LW parts as it's feelin a lil slow for me.

Yeah august was the unofficial confirmed date to me.

But we just had our first hara part sighting on the hpi-europe site via some option parts. So all is looking good.

I think that pretty much means we are due to see the car appear within the next 2 months. Im figuring this month or early novemeber it should start showing up.

Im most likely going with the conversion kit if there is one. Supposedly the gas tank is already available. I might start with that or go piece by piece, they do have the chassis and upper deck and im pretty sure thats all thats needed to do the conversion. But we will see.

Default starter box

Hi Guys,

I'm waiting for the hara edition too. Parts have started to show up on the european site, so the car should be available this fall.

I need to get a starter box for the R40.
Please let me know what you're using, if it's good or bad, what you recommend, etc.

thanks!
