Take your time when assembling the 2 speed shoes. Its a little tricky , just be sure to not overtigthen them.

Also get some silicone oil for the rear diff. Is a 4 gear diff included? If not purchase one of those...there readily available on ebay and online if you cant find it local. 10k weight for parkinglot course and 30k for regular high-traction course.

Id also look into swapping the front one-way for the hpi solid rear axle (spool). I also like the 3racing cf lower suspension mounts.

After that your set to conquer.

You guys all still using the solid rear axle in the front instead of a oneway? Is it that much better in handling?

I just like being able to use brakes effectively on a tight course , if I were to goto one of the big tracks where its sweepers Id probably switch back. Another great thing about the spool , zero maintenance and its always consistent compared to a diff which can fluctuate or go out.

Ohhh ok. My tracks are a bit larger then.




THis one here....bridgeport,ct..


doesn't have any races, but I practice with the R40 on there. I ran diffs a while back and did like it rather well. Personally the LW 2speed just really was a bit tall...stock form and needed to go to the lowest possible combination for first to help a bit and definately will be using 30% consistently. The OS .12TR will be the car for the moment and I'll keep using the stock 2speed. Gonna then pick up another used upgraded one fo $125 for spares...and last $80 gets me a full arsenal of spares for when I hit the tracks.

Here is my track and pro-hobby driver with the STS d3r modified we are running. His first nitro on-road race and first race in the mtx-4 and the motor was not tuned right at all. Still got TQ. I was the cameraman. Last race it was much better and the course was much faster setup.

Oh wow that's really right. Here's an idea of what's it like to drive a sedan at BPts track. That's me running the 8th. Unfortunately since there's no signature of documents there is no racing right now...but it's open to the public. I say its a great opertunity for me to help the other R40 owners there tuning n such. I like the way parts are cheap and I figured how I broke those dogbones. Think maybe being on throttle while I flipped and landed the wheel spoke side on the ground probably caused it to snap. Say X rpms to zero in nothing flat may just do it.

*EDIT*

Here's the sedans running while I was the camera man. The orange one has the Mugen X12 and a JP modded X12 the other has a Tim hots N12LL3 I believe.

yo.
thanks for the advice about the 2 speed shoes.. last night i worked on them and its indeed a little tricky.. there wasnt even thread in those holes
think i'll have to buy some tapping-tools to create some thread for those holes .
yeah i also have a 4 diff(spider diff) in this kit included, as well as a front on-way to.
later

NO!!!! Don't buy self tapping tools! With any car the screws go into the plastic and make their own threads. It won't be easy to find anything that matches the screws unless it's some super warehouse with every size tap tool. BTW, he was refering to your grammer. No offense, but it's "new not "knew".
