when i first changed to a better than standard i found that the car was much easier to drive quickly without the delay in steering input, and i'm never going back a standard servo for the throttle should be fine, even so i upgraded mine too. ( its like a desiese )

6 hrs later and the car is assembled. wohoo!!
Have to say the instructions suck but HPI has done a really good with the way the R40 goes together.
fastharry- the car did have a one way. Now I just need to get the 4 gear conversion for the rear. Also I have some bearings left over? Any ideas?

car is in excellent hands. There is 5 bearing left over ,1 flanged like in the steering, two that looks like they were supposed to go in the rear diff, 1 really thin one and 1 regular. I'll take a pic later.

Probably some clutch bearings or did you install that already. Also there are like 4-5 bearings that go into the steering assembly. The instructions say use the plastic but you gotta kinda know thats when you pop in some of those real small bearings.

Rear diff bearings are the biggest bearings , same size as the fronts.

Whoa thats freaky, now I see what you mean. Your looking at the 6811 part on the side right. It does look like a bearing , but thats the o-ring.

ok someone showed me this at the pre-worlds, and if im wrong please correct me. When you measure your droop at the front, you may find that when the swaybar is active it raises one side higher or lower than the other, even though when you set it up without the swaybar and shocks it was equal, if you then turn the cam with everything on it will adjust that side to compensate for the difference so you get equal droop either side.

I hope this helps and thats a nice car you have there.

Default about the hpi hara edition 'r40'.

he peoplezzz.

i'm new in this forum, and would like to ask a question.
it's about the r40 hara edition, it is quite new in my country, and i'm thinking of bying the kit.
It look's really cool, but i just need some more info/ advice, and many of you people allready have this car, is it the money worth? the kit?
does it go fast? and what are the good things about it, and what not?
At my local rc store, offcourse they say 'yeah buy this car, it's the money worth, but he, that's sell talking .

It's a great car. It won the ROAR nationals 2 years in a row. Those that have the Hara 2005 say its even better then before. If your local shop carries parts for the car, I say go for it. Now that you have found this thread, come back and ask any questions if you decide to get it.

My typical advice to people as to which car kit to get is, get the one you like the look of. If you are fairly new to racing then as long as you get a top level kit you should do equally well with all of them. The pick of the crop in my opinion is the Mugen MTX4, Kyosho V1RRR and the R40. There are a few other good cars out there as well but they are my picks.

Now you are not going to get people on this forum telling you that the R40 is a bad kit of course, same as if you went onto another thread. But to be fair if you buy any of the cars I mentioned above you will be very satisfied.
