Speedmind also has one at rcmart. That is very small , a 500mah and 750mah which is a little larger.

Im not sure if anyone would want to risk using the 500mah one though.

Mugen seiki also makes one which is a little better.

As well a sanyo 900mah.

I still say I saw a different number for the 1st gear spur in one of your pics. I'll recheck. I feel soo outdated just running the first R40 with few upgrades. Atleast it works for me though and that's all that matters.

*update*

Sry it was ProE. Maybe it he changed it.

I just bought a Sanyo 900mah pack from Harmony Models for $22.

I raced my car last night. In a word AWESOME. I dont know the science of it, nor can care really, but it is just better. It transitions WAY better, man I was carving the technical sections up, and it mid corners better than the old car. The overall feel of the car is the same which is nice, but it just carries better mid corner speed, holds its line mid corner better and the transitions are just amazing.

In my first 3 heats with the car, 1st, 1st, 1st. Overall 2nd qualified on the night at a track I have only ever raced at once before. Unfortunately was unable to run the finals due to time constraints...................

I am using the front holes on my rear arms, not quite sure what problems you are having?? I am running 3mm rear droop, do you use less than this?

Many thanks for your PM.

Have parts and hopup for Hpir40 is very difficult in France, cause somes shops sell the car only, and not the parts.

Only less than 0.5% of the Rc drivers in france have the HPIR40 in regional or national race.

Many thanks to this forum to give me somes informations about this car, by this way I know that i'm not alone.

Yeah in the US you can barely find any of the worthwhile hop ups. Its also just as rare of a racer here. Iam probably the only guy with an r40 at my track. We get sometimes 120 entries at races so its not too small an event.

The lower rear arms are the same as the graphite arms. And my steering is much more tight than the old 2004 setup.

Any idea on what is making the steering tighter then on the old steering?

SWEETNESS!!!!!!

I feel jealous all you guys got 04 and 05 R40s meanwhile I'm trying to catch up with mine. I feel like buying a new upper deck for it (the lw one) since the stock one does seem to have a crack in it. I still can figure out the steering as off of a sudden it doesn't want to center. IMO the car worked just as fine with those bushings I had and centered correctly. I just can't figure it out and checked it several times. ARG!!!!!! Well, atleast I can slightly turn the wheel to make it street...not like I drive it by letting go of the wheel. If you turn it to the right and let it go it's a little off but turning the steering knob gently corrects it. It will do for now.
