That wouldn't be hard to fix since the hubs have set screws.

Hinge pins are 2.5mm per HPI manual. 254mm = 1 in. TC3/Losi pins are 3/32" I think, so they are .093 ". Close to 2.5mm, or .098 " David probably has the best idea, use TC3 axles with Hpi bones. Just need to ream out the hinge pin hole on the hubs.

"the bones on the TC3 are excactly the same as the Pro4..50mm"

What about the drive pins? If they are smaller/larger that could be an issue w/ the outdrives...

Since they are both made by MIP...I assume they are the same...
If they differ...the outdrive slots can be easily enlarged with a file or dremel...

hi guys(and girls)..
I'm considering the Pro 4 as my next car.
So,before i go head first,would you please be so kind as to answer these questions regarding this beautiful kit?
1.Is this car strong?anyone breaking parts like crackers?Can it survive a meeting with the boards?
2.Durabilityoes it have bevel gear problems like the Evo III?
3.MOST important:does it handle well(enough)?
