Have you got a setup sheet harry? I recently tried my mates Associated NTC3 and was shocked at how much more nimble it is than my r40, especially it's turn in. My car tends to push into the corner then oversteers on the way out, it's still quick but if it turned like my mates car it'd be muuuch faster
I'll work on the sheet.....

I know..
listen,as long as you are ordering,see if you can pick up the 3 racing brake lever arm.....it uses a small 2-56 ball end(i think asociated and HPI have them.......a good hobby shop should also,.,,),,,,by putting a ball end there instead of that wire slip through plastic BS,it REALLY firms up the braking.....very precise.....also,see if they have the optional SS brake disc

oh good call, my breaks are a bit inconsistent at the moment so I'll give them a go... I'm pretty sure rcmart have those parts if rcmodel don't

I put my R40 down at Toledo this weekend for the heck of it, and it was running really well. I had made some pretty aggressive changes to the setup and like everyone is saying here it is still plenty capable.

when you fit the mtx3 clutch do you use the mugen clutch bell/gears or the hpi ones? I take it since everyone is fitting the mtx3 clutch the mtx4 doesnt fit?

Harry
I build all my cars the same way.....50 st oil,#3 pistons,ride height of 6 mm rear,5.5 mm front with 61 mm tires in back,59 in front,black springs all the way around,3 degree toe in back,1 degree toe out in front,middle caster,1 d camber in front,2 in back...I run the 4gear diff in back with 30,000 weight,and a one way in front....If I run a diff in front,I'll start with 50,000....and no spacers under the uprights.......and here's the key...I always run 1 shore SOFTER tire in front.......

AI
Also I ran 50wt with black springs in the rear , silver in the front , spool in front , 10k 4 gear diff in the rear , 5mm front , 5.5mm rear , then I tweaked it on some scale (made left and right even in weight distribution) installed a mugen clutch , w yellow pad , 40 shore front , 37 shore rear twister tires and the car was on rails.

RapidRoy
In general, I found I need more rear grip, so I use either black or silver springs in the rear with the black fronts, 50 Wt shock oil with stock pistons all around. 5mm/ 5.5mm f/r ride height (ya my chassis is really scraped up) 1.5/2 deg camber f/r, 0/3 toe f/r. I use the 4 gear rear diff and a 2 gear front dif with 30000 rear and 100000 front. Both diffs 3/4 full.

and for reference, CraigM
60Wt front, 50Wt rear, stock pistons, black springs all round, same shore tyres (37 for parking lot, 40 for permanent), 2 gear front diff with 50000 wt oil, 4 gear rear with 30000 wt oil, 5-6mm ride height, 1 deg toe out front, 3 deg toe in rear, 1/2 f/r camber, and a wider than stock front track by about 2mm. I cant remember the droop settings My car understeers a bit so i'm going down to 50wt front oil and will try silver front springs if i need more steering after that.

unless there is some serious user error going on over here that's forum search, you used to be able to search just within this (or any other) thread
