Bad luck Proteus your first time race.


I saw those new options too yesterday. Is Rainbow10 only place where get those bevel gears, because they are more important than other goodies wright now.

That Rc shop in HK where i made my order earlier have`t them.... and i don`t know when they get more. Is it sense to buy diffrings and balls too?

I`ll sure cook mine when i get my kit, because i drive mod and i don`t want to destroy them when i`ll drive firstime in my clubtrack

Default Parts

Can you go directly to HPI headquarters and buy parts like you can at Tamiya. Tamiya and HPI are within driving distance to me.

Shortyzz...

put the Ti screws last on your list.. not really need...the car is way underweight as it is... instead spend your money on tuning aids like the 1.2mm, 1.4mm sway bars, springs when they get released
and extra diff gears!

I've had both the pro4 and Cuda R2... I find the Pro4 easier to work on and more tunable...

With some of the problems i'm hearing about with the pro 4, i'd go for the R3. They're both more than capable but I prefer cars with exposed diffs and aluminum bulkheads like the cudas have.

Nice post edit.

Regarding your original post: I'm not very familiar with the R3, I've only seen one, and it's a nice car. As far as your "it has less molded parts" comment, I don't think molded parts are a bad thing, as far as the Pro4 goes. The fit is the best of any car I have ever had. There was absolutely NO hand fitting of any of the parts, and everything was free, not binding out of the box.

Pro4 problems - The only "problem" I have heard of thus far is the diff gears, and nobody that has done the "hot bath" has broken them yet ( that I am aware of ). It's not something I am to worried about - If you don't hit the wall, you won't break anyways.

Yah I figured that was a bit harsh so i edited it... I've never had much luck with molded diff cases, etc in the past so i avoid cars that have those. Look at the tc3, sure it's successful but you have to do so much to it to get it to run the way most people want it. No excuse for the diff gears, you shouldn't have to soak them in hot water for them not to fail. And I honestly believe that any new car you own is "the best ever". That really doesn't mean that much.
