I donīt think so as Losi uses inch size bearings and HPI uses metric size bearings.

rc-zombies - Cool, it is something we do on the AE car, since Losi hubs are same geometry but have more adjustments and you can change toe with them because they come in 0, 1/2, and 1 degrees.

I know what you mean...I've used the Losi rear hubs when I had my TC3 some 20 years ago...

With the Pro4 it's easier and faster to change toe-in blocks than the hubs..

Hey guys, I have this kit coming in soon. What part were you guys refering to exactly that has broken up front. You mentioned something about the instruction showing you to remove a small piece of material and perhaps this part should just be left on??? Any pics?

Thanks!
Ben

Does anyone know if any U.S. hobby shops have any repacement parts for the car yet, I know very few places have the kits yet, but did any of the parts make it onto the market before the kits?

haven't seen any replacement parts yet...Tower has them listed already. What parts you looking for? I might have some...

Thanks for quick reply, but I was just wondering if parts are out there yet in case I decide to pull the trigger on buying the pro 4. It really interests me but as of now I am still running my other car (Corally Assassin). Barry Baker and Todd Hodge are coming up to our track(Seattle) in a couple of weeks and if I was to switch cars, I would want to have replacement parts for it. Thanks for your offer though.

Steve

P.S. have you driven your car yet? Do you ever run on carpet?

yes.. I've driven it...practive laps and tuning but no races yet...the weather hasn't been cooperating lately.
the car has alot of steering and plenty of corner speed. Haven't had a chance to run carpet yet...hard to get away with a 2yo son keeping me busy.....

if you ever switch cars...I've got several sets of arms, front knuckle/rear hubs, diff gears etc...

"rc-zombies - they have the stock pivot blocks that I put in bold which are 2.5 and 3 degree, I am looking for 0, 1, 1.5, and 2.0 degree blocks

75161 - Pivot Block 0 degree
75158 - Pivot Block 1 degree
75159 - Pivot Block 1.5 degree
75160 - Pivot Block 2.0 degree "

When the tc3 first came out, we used to use the f block in the rear in the place of the r to reduce toe in. You did have to add washers to bring back the correct anti-squat, but it was effective till the parts were out. I don't have the car yet, but maybe something along those lines could be tried. Even if you wound up with 0 toe, that might work for high traction foam tire racing.

actually no...
front and rear toe blocks are identical. front has 2.5 of toe and 3.0 in the rear. the inside blocks are identical f/r but have different mount points than the toe-in blocks. you'll need the 0deg. blocks.. if you download the manual...you'll see why..

How is the access to the motor screws in relation to the EVO III. On an angle or a straight shot with your wrench?

I've run mine on carpet and use the middle brace. it definitely makes the chassis stiffer and more reactive.
