I hope hpi release a conversion kit 2, much more cost effective for people already with r40's imo.
greg, any decent starterbox will work well with the r40, if you plan to breakin your own motors get one with a bit of beef maybe a 1/8th starter or somthin. dont get a tc3 starter box, the wheel is orientated differently of course.
nice r2 you have there BatJam!

Please let me know what you're using, if it's good or bad, what you recommend, etc.

thanks!
I use the Ofna universal and it has plenty of power and NO PROBLEMS. It's the 1/10 scale version.

Is there a problem with the CVD's in the R-40,because i just read that in one of the HPI challenge races everyone in the a-main were breaking them!
Thanks Hesky! I'm also waiting for the Hara Edition! But i think i'm gonna get the .12 TZ 3 for it with the cevec pipe.I use the Ofner 1/8 scale box for the Racer 2 its got plenty of starting power.I also have the Associated starter box for my GT it also works great.

No problems that I know of. I've been to two HPI Challenges and I did not see anyone break a CVD.

I have been to the last two east coat challenges and have not seen nor did I hear of anyone breaking the CVD's on the R-40. Now I did have my share of broken CVDs at last years nationals in Ohio, but that was due to some poor driving, high speeds and some help from the boards.....

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.
Mu current body is blue with the clear wing but the clear hood looks hot. I will have to steal that idea from you next time I do a body.

I think the CVD breakage is due to the track conditions. They will break if you manage to pull the steering knuckle off of the pivot balls. I have had this happen a couple of times when I was crashing a lot the first couple of races.

Are you using the stock plastic Steering blocks?

The only time I have broken a CVD is when I used the purple aluminum steering blocks which make it near impossible to "pop" the steering block off the pivot ball. Since the energy isnt dissipated popping the joint, it has to go somewhere ( ie. breaking the CVD ).

I think the car was engineered so the pivot ball joint would give before the CVD was broken -- my 2 cents ( or non-cents )

hum thats pretty insane, your clutch bell must be seeing surface temperatures in excess of 400+C!. sure it wasn't from an impact or sumit? even my jp clutch bells stand up to alot of slip and stays true.

Yeah I dont think I did hit anything. But you can never be sure. I think I either warped it or it was warped from the get go. I noticed it as I was spinning it off the vehicle and I watched one side get close to the clutch disc, then further away. Kinda makes me think this could have been that odd sound I was hearing along with why my clutch has been harder to engage than my first r40.

I have the mugen backup clutch, but I want to work out the r40 clutch first, then move onto the mugen and see which I like better.
