The stock ones are the 'Thin' type..about 4mm. they supply spacers to widen the car.

I guess I was lucky... They sold out already...
the last time they had them was about 3 weeks ago...

These are great if you're running a wide set-up.
With all the wheel spacers in place the stock thin hubs may not have enough grab of the wheel. This was recommended by the HPI R&d cafe Japan.
ordered my set from R10. hopefully they have them.

and regards to the ball diffs, gosh they do go fast. i've ordered two but was only able to get one

That's great... Take your time building the car and take note of the shimming...
Most importantly... don't forget to boil all your beveled gears.

Yea..that was me that melted the gears.. I wast busy assembling the car and forgot the gears in the pot and it ran out of water...

brint the water to a boil and turn off the stove...and let the gear soak in the hotwater for about 30min... after that take them out and just towel dry them...and don't forget to lube the gears....

GregH at HPI-Europe's forum has been saying not to directly boil the gears, but to boil water, pour it into a different container and let it sit for about 5 minutes, then set the gears in it to soak for about 20 minutes.


Erik - What do you recommend, is it even nessisary?

Thanks. I'll do that. BTW, I'm using paragon ultralon to lube all my gears on SD and I like it. I think I'll use it on pro4 too.

That's what I used as well... & put some on the main drive shaft pins & outdrives as well...

Time for a few questions....

What kind of gearing range is possible with 48dp gears? ie. could I go from 19/72 all the way to 35/72?

Will HPI be releasing parts in the future with a higher graphite content or are the current compisite parts as light/stiff as most other cars optional graphite composite parts?

Any one been crash testing it yet? how well does it stand up to a bit of abuse? (other cars have a habbit of swerving into my path, honest )
