Ooohhh...That's what that's for! I thought it was a hinge for the stickpack battery set-up, that Hpi decided to not use(like some of the older kits with previous kit's parts on the tree). Wow, how did you figure that out?! Can you move it back and forth on the chassis? Maybe more tuning options, huh?

No, With the stock chassis, the only place it can go is right in the center.

The PRP chassis will probably have a 3 point center brace though. The Pro4 stuff was just added to the website. teamprpracing.com

I just peeped the PRP chassis...that thing is definitely the HEAT! So many racers and manufacturers are flocking to the Pro4! This is definitely refreshing, after so little support and negative opinion for the Pro3. Isn't it amazing how many "closet" Hpi lovers are out there?! You still didn't tell me how you figured out the chassis brace thing.

The suggested pinion for the stock spur gear was quoted at a 34 or 35 tooth. A 34T pinion on a medium to large size track, should be perfect. Make sure your drivetrain isn't binding.

If, you have a Binary Stock motor, either a 32 or 33 tooth pinion should be on the money. good luck

What size track??

a track this sized, I would probably start around 31-32 teeth on a Monster Stock with rubber tires.

Just make sure you take it easy, wait to see where the car tops out on the backstretch. You want it to top out a little bit before you let off the throttle for the next corner.

make about a 4 minute run, and make sure the motor isn't too hot. If you can hold your finger on it comfortably for a couple seconds, finish off the pack. If it's hot, re-gear.

My monsters & binarys usually run between 130-150 when geared right. When in doubt, gear it lower.

kew - I just knew it was the brace from seeing pictures.

I kinda' figured as much. Good "eye"! My local track is about the same size (maybe a slightly longer straight) and I had good results with the binary motor, which you gear down at least one tooth from the Monster Stock. I run foam tires trued to racing size(60mm or less-my tires were 58mm rear with front overdiven at 56mm. - tires didn't get trued even, since last race day). I started the day with a 32t and finished with a 33t pinion.

I run 3-4 teeth lower with the binary than I would with the Monster.

Are any of the optional pivot blocks in stock anywhere? Who is stocking the most Pro4 parts right now? Will any 64 pitch spur work?

Sorry for the really stupid questions but...

What kind of file can I use to file down the battery slots? What grit sandpaper for the edges?

I bought a RW spur, most spurs should fit.

Pro4 parts are getting out there. My shop has a pretty good supply of them now..

Use a fine file to sand the chassis edge, and the battery slots.

If your looking for an online shop, KTHobbies.com is carrying Pro4 parts
