im just trying to compair because i dont want to have to upgrade to a better racing car when i need it ...i would rather buy now and be able to use it later and now not just for now.
Durability any handling are 2 different issues. The R40 is one of the most durable cars available in my opinion. The car in Hara trim also won the ROAR nationals 2 years in a row. Hara might have won a 3rd, but was racing electric durring the last Nats. The final decision is really your personal preference. The R40 isn't perfect, but I like it. That's why I run it. I also have a Serpent and a Yokomo, but still prefer the HPI. You will need to decide for yourself. HPI, Serpent, Mugen, Mongoose all make good cars.

Default got a problem

hi all,
the first gear pinion on me r40 stripped the thread on the cluth bell and came loose? and fell of? any ideas? i thought it got tighter under power? iam lost as to why it did it, anyone else had that problem?

also the first gear purple holder seems to rub on the second gear holder. like they to close together.

and third the side of my rear diff case gets eaten out? is the bearing suppose to go towards the diff or away. like the little adjuster for the belt? i brought the car second hand . so no manual. cheers.
