Default AAARRGGG!!!

What a pain! My LHS doesn't get RD Logics, or skyline pipes. I'd be lucky if he orders them. The new THS pipes they are coming out with should be in the stores soon though so I'll sit tight and look at them when they come. Meanwhile I'm going to get the fuel, shims, and oneway for the R40 as well as probably that 4 spider diff gear for the rear.

very informative topic on the overdrive.

Just wondering though...say I use the 22t pulley and I set up my tires as 59 front 62 rear. so this is overdrive and i expect a more responsive car in terms of steering.

However, as the mains progresses, your rear tires actually wear out and become smaller. In fact, at the end of the mains, your rear tire will most probably be smaller in diameter vs your front.

Doesn't this change then the driving characteristics of your car?

You can pick up the RD logics pipe on Ebay for like $54. Turbo, Turbo 2, & Turbo 3 are all available there.

Are they notorious for bent stingers ? The Orion pipe I have on now has a bent stinger, and a small dent farther back... I'm still learning to drive

Im not sure as I havent tested that many pipes. But I never had a bent stinger until the rdlogic.

I couldnt see a bent stinger being good for performance and its just an ugly eye sore to me. Also yeah mine has the dent to go along with the bent stinger. But if your a good driver and have a wide track im sure it shouldnt come up too much. Most everyone I know with an rdlogic has bent it. But your right other pipes do suffer the same....just not really sure which is less durable. Thats why rather than play which pipe doesnt bend. I just went with the one I know wont bend.

The RD Logic Turbo 3 has a reinforcement block that is supposed to prevent bent stinger syndrome. I can't say for sure if it really works. I havent used or seen this one in use yet. It certainly looks beefy though.

Items came in today. I'm going to install the oneway later and test out the car. I forgot to get the 4 gear diff mod for the car though, but that can come later. Those RB shims jacked up the price on the bill as they are expensive, but you get a lot in the baggie.

Are RB shims the same as novarossi. If So I have tons of these NIP for cheap. Also I feel your pain , 3 novarossi shims = $10 dollars.

I think I got 5 RB ones in a pack at $10 for the .21 and $7 for the .12. I'm going to put them on right now. Are you using the 4 bevel diff mod or the stock 2 gear? I was thinking of making the shaft the same as the 4 bevel gear or stick with the two as it worked great for me with no spin outs. I'll post pics soon. There is like a difference of 2mm for the diameter of the tires so maybe I'll give the 22T pulley a whirl or stay with the 23 for now. When it gets nice out some tests will be done. Mugen shocks are on order and some R40 springs though the stock ones seem to work very well.

Anyone trying different shoes? The latest gossip I heard was people like how the red provides more acceleration than the yellow. I may try them for myself soon.

Default 4 gear diff

http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...&I=LXJLH6&P=ML

I cut the two stock pins for the diffs and fitting it in the rear diff with oil. Kinda acted like a oneway for a sec, but it's starting to fit in and run just like a regular geared diff. Now time for the shims .

Default R40 problem

I took my R40(2005) for its first outing today. Had to brake in OZ engine as well.

Is was almost as if my car would not go. At low revs, I could see that the clutch wants to engage. When I reved the engin up, the car was very sluggish so start moving. I had to rev it high to get it to move. I then loosened the screw on the clutch, but it seemed to be the same. I checked the whole drive train and it could move freely. The brakes wasn't keeping the car back.

When the car did eventially start moving, it seemed to handle nicely. Could not push it hard as Im still braking the engine in. I also experienced a funny problem when braking. The end of the car would come around the left side the moment I applied the brakes. Even in a straight line.

Have any of you guys had these two problems before, and how did you fix it.
