Tower is always a good place for HPI parts too.

looking through the list of stuff coming with your r40 I didnt see a rx battery listed..
alot of weight can be saved by getting a lightweight rx battery.. probably more than any other parts..

Remove the steering links. Check the steering blocks if they move freely, also check the center steering mechanism if it moves freely. remove the top plastic cover that shields the front diff/steering plates. If the center steering mechanism does not move freely without the plastic cover, tighten the purple ring that holds down the steering servo saver. Replace the top plastic cover and check again. I've seen this problem in two R40s

also make sure that the wires arn't getting too close. It's really easy for them to get in the way if you route them the way the manual shows

Most of the time its binding on the hub carriers and pivot balls. IT MUST be able to rock back and forth without any intervention. Remove the steering links and just hold the car forward and the hubs should turn in...then lean the car back and the hubs should turn out. I did this and used a bit of CA on the threads to prevent it from rattling loose. If the hubs stay stiff or move sluggish adjust it to get the proper free movement.

Dubbed_Monk-Hey man I noticed you live in brooklyn. Do you go to Floyd Bennett? The site is www.frracers.com . You should go there to race the R40. I run mine there also. I'd also like to add to the list the LW 2speed. Combined with the LW shafts they totally make a difference in the car. Despite the fact the gear ratio is a lot taller, the components are much lighter so it allows the engine to spool up quicker.

Can anyone recommend a setup board good for the price? I like the Hudy one as it holds the car up and you can make the adjustments, but it may break the wallet. I'd also like for a radio with spektrum or something like that. If anyone can list some great ones with prices that'd be great...thanks!

I have the newly released integy setup station 2 pro.

http://cgi.ebay.com/Integy-Team-Alig...QQcmdZViewItem

Its fair priced , high quality , comes with board that features a level , setup wheels and it all comes in a nice case. Also has some good base instructions on how to setup your car.

Not only do I suggest that , but I suggest buying from them. Thats my local hobby shop, where I bought mine. They are also one of the few people that has it in stock. Also at a great price.

Is there a picture how it's setup? Looks good. I'll ask my lhs to rder it. Paypal isnt safe so I have no one to order it since my sister doesn't want to use it. I may need a universal one for my 8th onroad too.

Ill put mine on the setup station and will take some pictures. I believe it works slightly different than the hudy.

You can also get the integy tweak station to round out the package. Basically matching the hudy setups.
