Its like a couple of sheets stapled together. Like straight from a printer. It has to be in there. If not , somewhere in this thread someone has scanned them in , some quick searching back a few pages you should be able to locate it.

Thanks AI,

this helps out allot , they had one of these sepreate manuals for the Type ss Rs4 as well, now i have the trouble of trying to get a stripped hex head nut out of the 2 speed clutch LOL , but once i get this sorted out im golden , is the picco .12 red-dot a good engine for the R40??? and why didnt they make it shaft drive? that would be highly more reliable

The quality of the hex screws of the two speed is not very good. Buy some normal screws and replace those.

okay guys heres the deal i got all the parts i need now to complete the two speed after that stripped head ... so i get everything on the drive shaft and the side where the gears are the bearing doesnt line up with the holder, and if i put the bearing on the other side then the pins that hold the brake disc from spinning come out and i have some slack in there , what do i do ?

That bearing needs to slide down into the slot in the bulkhead. You may need to use some pressure to do this since the rear belt wants to pull the shaft towards the back of the car. The brake disk will be really loose and the pin will fall out at this point. When you put the top half of the bulkhead on, the brake pads will keep the brake disk in place.

i stripped those hex screws too. best thing to do is grind a flathead grove into them using a dremel cutwheel.

does anyone know if you can still get the proceed red springs online? I'm in aus so I get most of my parts shipped here but I havent found anywhere that sells them anymore. Looks like the gold ones have been discontinued too but i've managed to place an order here so hopefully they can get them at least

hey guys,

so i just noticed that my car doesnt free roll... it cranks the engine over when i push it forward... now is this supposed to happen?

second, what battery packs are you guys using?? found out it wasnt compatiable with the old school 4 cell pack ... i have yet to start up this beast ... what glow plugs do you use for a Picco .12 JLR red-dot? and is this the proper break in?-Correct break in ? or since its a race engine can i drive the car around and lean it out every 3 tanks or soo?? of course not all at full throttle 50%-75% throttle..

Mike

If the engine is cranking, both your 2 speed and your clutch are binding. They both need to free wheel. Have you built and adjusted a centax type clutch and a clutch type 2 speed before? If not, you will need to get some additional advise on setting them up before you start.

As for your engine, you should know if you bought a turbo or standard plug engine. You can pull the plug and look at the end. If it has a taper to it, its a turbo plug. A standard plug is squared off.

Engine break in is somthing you'll get many different answers on. There is a really good thread in the nitro engine forum on this.
