Only thing I would warn you of, is to not get frustrated if you can't find a screw or part. HPI appearently doesn't go for the "one bag, one step" method the rest of the industry is adopting. So even if it appears that your missing a part or a screw, its probably there somewhere.

Alright, loosing a screw shouldn't be a problem anyways. I got a screw kit coming with hex heads instead of those phillips head screws. By the way, you'll see the R40 review www.RCXotic.com

I was surprised by it, but I found the phillips screws HPI included quite usuable. I'm usually a 2mm hex only type of person, but I don't see any reason to switch on this car.

Unless that is, there is a lightweight screw kit availible.

I dont know if a stainless kit would be lighter, I know I prefer hex screws and I like the chrome look they have.

yes they do I picked mine up shortly after the car was released in the US.

I like the chrome look it gives to the chassie and upper deck they really help break the monochromatic look of the upper deck.

Would either of you guys mind throwing up a pic of your cars with the screwz installed. I would like to get an idea of how the car looks with them.

Is it normal, for when the diffs are new. To be really draggy? It takes some effort to get them spinning, like, if I don't apply pressure to the chassis, the tires will just slide across my garage. Does this go away as the diffs wear?

Eh, I hate this, I can't run it until after Jan 15!
