Most of those allow parts weer from Japan and long discontinued. I have had that car since the first day the came out..and it still runs great. I have some extra parts I might want to sell..including the japan only rear sway bar..


Give me a week or so and I will let you know on the
bearings and all..

Funny, but after putting my Super Nitro back together last night...and then promptly breaking the bumper...I kicked around the idea of picking up an R40. Never got one while they were out but thought about it...then nitro died. Just would hate to be in the same boat I'm in now with the Super.

I am one of those. Didn't know it would e-mail you. Figured I didn't need to save them as I was more than capable of typing them in myself. Did know HOW to search for it though...

...come now Harry, you'd think I'd at least know how to do THAT. LOL

Got my search in, now we'll see. I've been looking at some of the R40s on there. Just how hard is it to get parts for it? Do you still race yours Harry?

Yep, I still do..One of the few cars I keep in house all year.

You can still get parts. I know of a couple of r40's for sale. I will check it out and let you know with the bumper.
