Took me 10 hrs to build my R40. In the process of building time was also taken to make sure things were correct and few breaks to rest/eat.

Hey guys I came up with another solution for the r40. You can use the hellfire engine screws.

Its part # 94529

Gives you hex screw with a m4X10 , a little more to grab onto the engine mount and with the hex you will be able to torque it down a little tighter and keep those engine screws from falling out.

Ok, just wanted to note. I made a mistake on the thread on the rear camber links. I went and adjusted it. Seems HPI doesnt sell anything in a different size of that part.

But did find they make a very similiar part for the proceed. I might adopt that part for the rear or im going to just try thicker or longer turnbuckles. That ought to solve the issue.

Ill keep you guys updated.

The car handles great. Spring for the Hara edition if you are a serious racer because the kit comes with all the necessary hop ups.

I like how the car handles, I found that my car in stock setup was way to loose and how to soften up the rear to get it to my liking. I also must add that we race in a parking lot and not on perment track. The clutch can be hard to setup when you first get it but when you know how it works and know how to adjust it the car will fly. (I got a lot of help from the people in here. Thanks Rapid Roy & A-I)

I enjoy driving my car, the nitro class is dead in Birmingham, AL but I still have my car and drive it between classes and maybe one day there will be a nitro class to race in. The other reason I drive my car in between classes is to put some foam down and give a little extra bit on the track, but it only affects the line I race

Enjoy the car, it is a lot of fun.

One last tip, you dont need a big $$$ engine to race one of these. Pick up a HPI .12xrs and you should be good. I raced with this engine and did good and I know have a Infinity Katana 512 that is fast and won the AL State race in Hunstville at the end of last year. Both engines are under 150.00

my .02$

The 12R XS is a good motor, its made by STS actually. They sell updated versions of that motor the d12ex , d3r , d12x for around the same price.

Definently fast quality motors for cheap. Its what I run.

TZ is definently a good motor. Especially for the price you can find them for.
RB V12 is also a nice motor around the same price

Also the new Team Orion Wasp Rev motor should be pretty cool , but its going to be around 280-260 range. Should be out in a month or two.

I am running the TZ in my R40 and got top 5 at this years nationals amongst JP's Nova's RB's and it is an excellent motor i love it. Its a great motor for small to medium tracks. And if you want a bit more power (well not a bit far too much!) go and see murnan and pick up on of his 12tz they are so fast!
However i guarantee you wont be upset if you bought a standard 12tz
