Daniz,

I'm curious as to which type or style of rear dogbone you are utilizing

Brand ? Part #

I personally just buffed off the end of round surface and It worked just fine, however, I am soon needing a replacement set and would rather get something that fits straight out of the box.

It may have been posted somwhere else, but I do not see it as of now.

Scott
I'm using Kyosho #VZ014 52mm dogbone (1 pair)

- Any more news on the new steering system?

- Are the new low friction belts more durable than the gold ones?

thanks.
What clutch issue. Yes, you can try the new UFO clutch with yellow clutch spring for harder acceleration. Yes, the new belts are very good

took off the orange springs and put back the stock silver one which is 1.6, adjusted the droop at 4mm rear and 2 on the front, i ended up 6 on front and 6.5 at rear height that is well suited in our tracks the car performs well and i have more adjustment with the spring, my settings have preload on it and still have the option to lower the ride to 4-3 mm.Thanks Dhani!

Motorman- the upstop is non functional i did took it off.

The stock silver spring is good, but the purple is better. Do you already try how's the minimum ride height with the purple spring?

I have no idea with the purple spring, havent tried it yet, if its ok with you can you pm me the settings you commonly use? we have a medium traction circuit here and mostly where i practice, i dont compete i just earn good practice times and experience with right settings, i just run my car and improve driving skills for past time but looking forward to compete one day.

i like to work on better grip, good cornering and stable straight line speed,id like to see how you dial your car.

Thanks for your time, by the way im in Manila Philippines

Awesome !!!!!!!

One of my funnest races, seemed like slow motion, and I could see lines and lanes like never before. Starting to feel the force ROFL !!!

Couple things happened:
Once on Back, Big Time loss and
Unfortunately I lost my rear belt with about 6 laps to go or I probably would have been close to Bumping, maybe even scoring some Metal to take home !!!!

Other than that the car was great, and I am starting plans for the Ron Paris Race in October, should be a good turnout and alot of fun !!!!

Hey I am really looking to get one of these over another R40. I know that I will be buying the UFO and F/R spools, but I want to know what are the NEEDED option parts for this car? More towards endurance and peace of mind.
