I was looking at an EVO III this past weekend and the mounting holes to the chassis are not the same as as the HPI blocks. The width looked similar though"

The EVO blocks are a direct fit for the HPI F/R block. They can reduce toe, but may widen the car. Also, minimun roll center/mount height is like 2mm.

Default Extra Inventory

I hope that I am not stepping on anyone's toes, most of all Steve's, as I am not a regular advertiser on this forum. I have a large shipment of Pro4s coming in, that was meant to fill back orders, but most have cancelled and purchased elsewhere. I will be reducing my order size unless there is anyone on this board that is having problems securing a kit. The price is $284.97 plus shipping and any applicable tax. Here is the url:

Again, if I am stepping on toes, then I will be happy to remove this post.

Thank You,
Louis

Are you racing this weekend? E.J. Mo, Kevin J. Matt H, Alex (maybe) and myself are heading out for some mod action. I'll call you after I post this.

Default Woohoo! Post up another win for the Pro 4!

Second night driving the car, using the venerable HPI SX-1 steering servo and awesome TX-1 radio (I'm waiting on my stuff to be shipped to the UK from CA) and still working out the teething problems. Trying to tweak the local boy's setup to my own style but it's a problem when your servo is .22 sec. speed and about 40 oz.

Ran mod...used the wrong tires, wrong shock setup, didn't set droop (no tools)...finished horribly in the first qualifier. Second qualifier, set droop (left rear a little more droop), spun out all over the place. In the main (the "D" for...make up your own word starting with 'd') I switched to better tires with softer inserts, didn't have time to change the shocks so I used the kit spring in the front, changed the droop setting to equal in the rear, found the damn dual rate knob on the radio, started late, drove through the competition and I won baby.

woohoo... yeah...

But it's still nice to go home a winner, no matter what. As Thad and I used to say - if you're gonna be in the C or D (or even B), you gotta win it baby! Heck I even got the shakes a bit after I passed the guys (kids) for the lead, then I tried to settle into Hara mode (if you've seen him or Masami drive you know what I mean)...I can't do Hara mode as well as he can but still tried to concentrate a bit more than usual. Being my first two full nights of actual TC racing in many moons (other than the past 2 Reedy races, this was the first time I've raced TC in about 30 months I think?)

The sweetest thing about this car is that it reacts to the setup changes, and you know it will make a difference when you make a change. So good job Erik, your baby's done you proud I'll leave off some of the obvious questions I have about the car haha

Default Gluing rear diff ring

Do we really glue that inner ring to the rear diff gear like manual says, if so, what is the purpose of this?

Instead of making 2 different diff gears for the oneway and ball diff. They make 1 and offer a spacer to fit both.

Hey all,

Sort of a poll for you guys.

Would you rather buy hop-up parts for the Pro4 designed and manufactured in the US-or do you all have brand loyalties to Square, HPI, etc., etc.

Also-if you were looking for a custom chassis and topdeck for the pro4-what would you want? Whats your wish list of changes or improvements?

Ray
