TBH you'd probably have more luck finding a 2nd hand MTX3. Otherwise just hang out for a bit, R40's pop up every couple of weeks on the Aussie sale forum so I imagine the US is no different... but yes hold out for the Hara

hey guys i know youll think im stupid but are r40s or any nitro onroad cars fun when you cant race them cause i thought about getting an r40 then i thought itd be boring cause there arent any tracks near me and all id do would drive it up and down the street all day until it broke or burned up the engine from running it to lean. just asking and if they are any fun where do i get them cheap and what brands are best.

I'd like to tell you to get an on road car, but really, you would have more fun with a monster truck or a buggy.

Ill agree with that and besides bashing is boring after awhile anyhow. At least for me. If it wasnt for racing I just wouldnt be in this hobby anymore.

Same with me, anytime one of my cars touches the ground outside of a track it is only to get it ready to race or break in an engine.

I'm going to the track this week to break in my new engine because i find driving around in circles soo boring even when it's for a purpose like that.

Get a 1/8th buggy, they're almost as quick as 1/10th tourers but they are built super tough so are great for bashing and jumping

Can anyone tell me what this chassis is? Its defnitely not the standard one, or the super chassis, and it doesnt look like its the hara chassis (but maybe they had a few different hara chassis).

I know someone on here will know.

It looks like it might eb some kinda variation on the Hara Chassis. Stuff it - I'm gonna get it anyway. I run a Lipo rx pack so I have no issues with mounting it.
