For some reason the pro 4 drive smoother thanTC3 and pro4 are easy to dial compare tc3...I give the PRO4 two thumbs up

actually, lowering the inner camber link position will in turn increase the camber.., possibly a couple degrees... to get back to your original camber setting you will have to make the camber link longer.... also the rate of change in the camber increases, which works in conjunction with your camber setting...

Could you hit me with the link to that battery tape.
I have ran the Mission since they came out. Not one battery mishap.
Sunday, with the plastic bar, two mishaps with Pro 4.
Need tape.

What does the actually mean? This is what I just said without explaining it.

Thanks to all you fellows. Quite good information.
I ordered a few sets from TH.
I'll see what happens in practice this week.

the issue was the fact that he had to go to a shorter camber link... a lower inner position will give a lower roll center point and longer link.. the rate of change in camber will increase so you may or may not need as much camber...

I've heard of one arm breaking, but I won't mention RCDriverGary's name on here.
Yeah, I hit that pipe a ton, going full-tilt-boogie. I wasn't as suprised that I broke the right front arm as I was that the left rear ball stud broke, and I have no idea how that happened. But what suprised me the most was the fact that the hit that broke the arm...didn't take a ring and pinion gear with it!

Hum, I assume you mean a lower roll center. It's unlikely that changing the position of the camber links changes the position of the centre of gravity...

Guys...it has been a while since I posted here (actually it has been a year since I touched an r/c). Just want to know if there is any difference between the Pro4 released in Asia and the one here in the US.
