If Rcmadness is out... you may want to try ordering from Rainbowten.... they have most of everything you're looking for.

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
Ray..

if the parts are of good or better quality than HPI or Square..I'd condsider getting some... Price will be a important factor as well. So for aluminum option parts... Square is one of the Best.

Chassis...hmmm that's tough... the stock chassis is plenty stiff and light. I don't see any changes that could be made... maybe for the Carpet guys....3mm chassis with 3D cut-outs.

Graphite spacer blocks?
Wide front lower bumper plate?

I don't really care where its made, as long as the machining is of top quality.

As far as a chassis and top deck, I would like something milled out a little (in front and back of the battery, and a "X" on the electronics side). I KNOW the stock chassis is already underweight, but since my track has no weight rules, I would love to have an even lighter car. And as long as it still retained its rigidity, I'd probably buy it.

I'd say make the graphite spacer blocks and a wide fiberglass lower bumper.

Oh, and I'd like to see more spacer sizes for the camber links, like .25, .75, 1.0, 1.5. etc....

A hard front lower bumper will result in something breaking. Impact is harder... I'm looking for what RPM has done similar to the TC3... wide impact absorbing front bumber....

HPI has those spacers available already...unfortunately not in the US.... .5 mm and up...

If you guys are talking about graphite spacers for the blocks that wouldn't be cost effect, you would basically be buying a piece of resin and it would be so messy for the developer. Aluminum would be a far better use in my opinion, cheaper, not so messy, and easier to work with. But HPI already makes those. I am talking about the right piece right, or are you guys talking about something else?

I really like the idea of camber link spacers, offer a kit with so many options it is crazy and it will cost pennies to make, probably spend more on packaging them up and sell for about $10.

I was thinking of something like Bud's bumper for the TC3, which I had thought was fiberglass when I posted, but maybe its hard plastic? I wish they'd make their spacers (for the camber links) availble to the US!!!

I have a friend of mine working on a Bud style bumper for me this week. I pealed a front arm already. I'll post pics as soon as I get it.

yea...I've seen the buds....cheaper to go to TAP plastics and cut your own... that's what I did when I had the TC3. in the scrap bin...you can find a fair size ABS for real cheap..under $1.00 enough for a half dozen or more bumpers....

I recommed to do it. I clued that inner ring today after first time visit on track, because i drove last night and after 5 batts my rear diff sounds crunchy!!


I`m not sure was it that reason (i did not clue that inner ring when i assembly diff) why it become that way? It does`t slip, but that sound when i try it on the pit make me suspicious.

Car perfomer awsome with mod, i used Peak Vantage V2 and Peak Powerflo GP3300 batts those make your car fly

I turn diff ring d plates another side, because there was a little groove. I grease balls again and hope that help next time.

Anyone have same kind of experience?

Now that you mention it, I do remember being able to get small sheets of ABS from Hobby People ( think Parma put it out).....I wonder if they still carry the stuff....

Default Bumper material

ABS plastic is no where near as tough as kydex. They look exactly the same-but they bend very differently. ABS bends easily-turns white and cracks. kydex will bend-but can be bent back many, many times before cracking. Get kydex!!

Thanks for the input. SOunds lke the pro4 chassis maybe fine as is.
