I may be wrong on this one but I think the #1 Phillips is 3/16" and the #2 Phillips is 1/4".

Hudy comes with the following metric Phillips drivers;

163540 Phillips Screwdriver 3.5 x 120 mm
164040 Phillips Screwdriver 4.0 x 120 mm
165000 Phillips Screwdriver 5.0 x 120 mm
165040 Phillips Screwdriver 5.0 x 120 mm
165840 Phillips Screwdriver 5.8 x 120 mm

The usual ones that are usually used are the 4 mm and 5 mm Phillips drivers.

Whatever it is, enjoy your Chirstmas present !

hi initial D, thanx for the info dude thats awesome! happy holidays to you too. we all know my present is gonna be R/C stuff!

already got my engine, pipe, and manifold but need some new radio equipment and tools. gonna get the R40 last .

oh yeah, congrats on achieving 5000+ posts. thats crazy dude !

one more question. anyone know what size hex driver is needed to adjust the pivot balls on R40 (and other tourers with pivot ball design) and also to tighten the hex screws that bolt the engine onto the engine mount? i need to get some ball drivers for those, cuz the standard drivers are a hassle to use for those jobs.

pivot ball-2.5mm is the size for the pivot balls themselves

pivot ball retainers-5mm is the size

engine mounting screws-2.5mm is the hex size for these too.

No problem.

A ball wrench is definitely a must have for the engine mount screws. All the rest should be easy for a regular straight point hex driver to handle.

Fortunately, I have a 2.5mm ball hex wrench from my Yok SD kit. It should work great for the motor screws. And its like new since I never really used it for the Yok SD.

Naw, not only do you not need a ball allen for it, you really don't need a allen driver for it. The retainers are rarely adjusted(only to take the play out every now and then). So save yourself $15 on an allen driver and just use the allen wrench that comes with the kit. It fits very snuggly into the hex, so you wont get any rounded holes from it.

Default Weight concerns

I read alot about the weight problems the R40 has. Well I finally mounted up an engine on mine. Its my old .12 TR.(Sirio gets here next week )

My car came in at 3lbs. 14oz -> 62oz -> 1757g

So, ummm.......wheres the weight problem? Thats less than a Team Only ReflexNT.

I still plan on going for the lightweight shafts, graphite shock towers, and maybe the HPI lightweight upper deck(just because I like the way it looks), but I think I'll pass on the $70+ lightweight super chassis. I just don't see it as being neccesary anymore now that I see for myself how much the car actually weighs RTR.

I don't know what RCCA had on the car when they came up with 1910.

Well I don't know,

some battle scars look good on a car I think.

You guys ever get the "dougnut" on the side of your car? You know, that perfectly round tire mark from someone elses' car.

I love it when I get one. I think it looks sooo cooool

I'm sure this has probably been asked before, but we're can I get Hara's setup from the Nats at? I need a direct link please.

Also, anyone have any problems with the car shifting. Mine doesn't shift at all, I tried and other people have tried everything! I'm gonna put my AE 2 speed springs in it and give it a try.

check further up in this thread it was covered in some detail about 15-20 pages up. you may want to rebuild it again just to make sure it's built correctly. also if it's a new engine you may want to make sure it's fully broken in. good luck.
