Kewl. I'm also checking to see what kind of a price I can get for mine with the upgrades, ton of spares, engine, etc. Need to stick to one class for racing. 8th really isn't that expensive. I've spent more on my R40 than it costed me to get my MRX4 together...nonetheless has it broken more parts than the 8th in a crash due to someone else hitting me or pushed into something.

Wow the price for the R40 05 has gone down! It's about $450 on tower. Anyone know if they offer a skinnier rear diff for the R40? Mine shows some wear n tear on one side of it like it's rubbing against the rear bulkhead or something. There has to be something that'd fix that problem.

Theyve raised it and lowered it a few times. Kinda odd. Same goes for the Hara Pro4 kit. I know at one point if you used a coupon it was cheap...but it seems inline now with another site that sells the hara.

Still $100 or so more than the 05 and has nothing different. Except a hara box. I also heard the hara pro4 kit has a new manual , while our r40 manual is a bunch of addendums.

But just read a review on the hara pro4 , they seemed to think it was the fastest touring car they ever drove. Even with same electronics it just went faster and was ultra responsive. Kinda cool , just thought I would throw that out there. Ill also be racing my pro4 next month. Cant wait , 19T class.

Default 2005 edition

The one on tower is the hara edition. Not the 2005 edition.

The 2005 edition can be found at

http://www.rcmart.com/catalog/produc...ducts_id=16289

for $344.90

That's what I ment. I'm not ordering from that site...they don't even show the specs for the 05. I'll stay with what I got then if that's the case.

i had the same problem with my diff rubbing, in the rear. the little adjusters for belt tensioner are on the wron side ok, and you need more oil in your diff, mine did this but actualy rubbed through. i think it was cause the diff was letting go and spinning one wheel

Hi guys,

Could you kindly post a starting set-up for my R40 for a medium traction tarmac track. My main areas of concern are droop, front and rear camber, shock positions(I'm using the graphite shock towers) and ride height. The car is running a front one way and rear diff.

The car has been idle on a shelf for the past year as I have been competing in the National Stock Championship here in Malta (Electric) and I am getting the nitro bug again!!

Thks for your input...much appreciated !

Ray

WOW! Sweet track! Definately go with a oneway on that place and the 4 gear diff rear. Racing season is coming soon guys. My tracks Bridgeport, CT and FBF (brooklyn, NY) got their races set starting april. Still have the heart to sell the Rody and try the TZ...but debating on it and the N12LL3 thats only $80 more. Hmm..

I use -1 and 3 front/rear droop, 2 front camber and 3 rear camber as pretty much the defaults. I use bottom, inner front shock and middle rear shock positions as default, go to outer position if the car gets taily mid corner. Ride height depends on the track, but 5mm is average.
