Just so you know you can find brand new R40's in box for that price, local hobby shops and elsewhere. They are well worth a try if you are looking for big jumps in performance. I always try to keep in mind with my older kits that sometimes money is best spent on just a newer kit at some point.

Allthough it should handle better , im sure a stock r40 could probably outhandle and outaccelerate your rs4-3.

Not trying to stray though from the fact that this is a thread for the rs4-3. As well Im sure you might say that its what you wanted and thats fine. Just trying to keep that point in mind. As some of you act like this might be your only on-road vehicle. Id drive the rs4-3 and leave it stock , when your taste for performance grows , Id save for the uber cheap standard r40 kit now.

Otherwise I would purchase things that you can transfer from one car to the next. Like radio , servos , motors (not sure if it takes a pilot shaft, rear exhaust motor but if you can go that route). As well like the hpi threaded aluminum shocks or V2 shocks are a good upgrade that can transfer over.

With the tires, are you cleaning the rim and rubber before you glue? They shouldn't really fly off of the rim. The real question is why you arn't using foam tires. They come pre glued and really are better suited to high speeds.

You might also want to check out Wolfpak radicals. They have a number of pretty good mods for your car to handle crazy power.

Give them a shot, they have been around for years.

Foam is also cheaper and will have more grip. Most likely will shred fast if your all about breaking traction on coarse surfaces. Otherwise try some pit shimizus rubbers , they come preglued...should work.

I have on thats got quite a bit of mods , spare chassis , a larger box half full of foams , upper decks , like a smaller box full of spares and brand new parts , along with 2 large red plano bins full of spares. LMK in a pm. The amount of stuff is amazing.

all of my rod's are drilled that way, i dont get more then .002 strech after 8 gallons of fuel running top speed.Im charging the batt's on my sony W7 digi cam right now (dead batt's make for unclear pic's)





This is the best position for my crank porting that i have seen thus far, i had no other gain's with any other combo after porting 6 crank's
