It looks like HPI/HB did their homework when putting this car together. Again, I see many queues from the other top manufacturers in this car. It is definitely an improvement over their R40 (which was more of a parking lot basher/club racer in its stock form). Glad to see that in the hands of some of the worlds best, it held its own against all the other manufacturers' cars, making it another viable choice in the sea of nitro tourers. Glad to see HPI/HB get back into the nitro touring game with a more capable vehicle this time.

The R40 is one of the easiest cars to work on, either front or back 6 screws and you have access to the diffs or front or rear lay shafts and they simply came out. And to date no one else has done a similar thing and made maintenance so simple.

I don't think it makes any difference what car Hara drove at the Worlds the result would have been the same.

I agree on haras results, not to take anything from the r10. Cause I think it's a very good car, the video clearly shows the corner speed that the car generates......but I believe hara would have been top 3 with almost anything!

Teemu was untouchable all week with the R10. Real shame he had the problems he did.
Hara was fantastic and he would have been top 3 in any car for sure.

I for one have been very impressed by the R10 enough to want one!

Pulley count is the same as the Xray Nt1 / Capricorn C01 & C02 very interesting

Xray always said the internal gear ratio of the NT1 was the most efficient possible, if you've ever driven the NT1 it really does accelerate differently to other 200mm, especially if you've got all the low rotating mass options too!

I just got the 747 which has a different internal ratio, I'll be interested to see how it goes.

I've always notice that about the NT1. The NT1 accelerates differently than all other typical 200mm sedans(other than those cars that share the same internal ratio as the Nt1). I drive a 747 and it's fast. I've never driven the NT1 so I can not comment. But I believe there is something to the internal gear ratio of the NT1. I'm not sure how you judge effenciency in a gear train other than weight? Is there a certain gear ratio between driven and non-driven pullies in a gear train that yeilds optimal acceleration? I can hold my own against all of the Nt1's and Caps and Sheeps at my local track. Enjoy the ride!!!!

Its funny, Teimu was let down by his LRP engine in the race and Hara was having engine/fuel consumption issues all week! Shows you how close to the edge everything is at that level.

it is not all about the ratio it also has to do with leverage angles around the shaft by the belt remember a pulley it just a round lever

it does. just finished mine. the only down side so far are the hexes but very minor issue. i used extra serpent hexes i had. the orange match for an added bling if you're into that.
