Did you run 19T or stock? What was your TQ laps and time?
My Pro 4 is almost done so it should be ready for initiation by this Friday!

so far just the beveled gears... have no problem with durability of the other graphite parts yet..like the arms...
after the water has boiled...turn it off and let the parts soak for about 20-30 min. after that just towel dry them and apply you favorite lube. I use the Paragon Ultralon, Whitelightning bike grease works well too....

Stock. 30\5:00.1 Had a good 3-4 seconds lost due to traffic. Fastest TQ was 30\5:09. I also ran a diff up front. Worked better on the tight track.

Drove/raced my Pro 4 for the first time today,all I can say is wow this car is fast and hooked up,Ran really good today,best lap times for me ever at this track,but in the main I got punted(and I mean PUNTED !!) fought my way back to 2nd but the leader had checked out,but the bummer is I broke the ring and pinion gear on the front(chiped teeth).. I did finish the race..with a clicking noise,So mid march before we start seeing parts in our local hobby shops.. Dang..back to the R2 for a few weeks..

sturla, I think with the one way there is no way around stripping gears when you take a hard hit. If the wheels are locked so they can't move but the motor is still turning something has to give. (in most cases the one way gear. With a diff the gear can slip. This has been a problem with almost all gas and elec cars. I shimmed my car per the instructions and didn't boil the gears and my gears are fine. If you can try the diff in the front you will not have this problem...

Default Weekends racing

My pro4 also did really well 1st ttime driving on carpet up against some stiff competition that were faster than me, qualified 6th finished 3rd, didnt break a thing, used a diff as v tight circuit, apply grease to the diff gears, the diff matereial will absorb some of the misture in the grease.

Any ones diffs coming loose??? ive ran mine for 2 meets now and they seem to be working a little loose too often..?

I don't think it's all that great...you're better off getting a couple of postal scales...about $20.00 at Costco...if they still sell them..

Default Still going strong

Guys;

Wanted to say that I did pretty well in Stock Sedan with my Pro-3 this weekend.
Out of a field of 38 entires, qualified 3rd overall and finished 4th (got out motored). Was my first time running the Car since Nov 03.

With everyone posting much faster lap times than before running a Pro-4. I can't wait for the parts support to come in and I will be buying mine.

chr15tophe, I had a problem not being able to tighten my diff tight enough to stop slipping. It turned out to be my fault, I put too many thrust balls in the diff assembly. I think I used 7 instead of 5 as per the instructions. It could possible be this. If not that check the M2 nut used to tighten the diff could possibly be bad...

Default diff slippage

infact looking at the manual closer, the drawing shows 5 thrust balls in the diagram to build it, the part number shows x6 on the left hand side of the page and beside the pic of the thrust race it shows 6 balls with part number A150..

How many have people used in theres then??
