Where did you get the strap?
On a different note.
I left the stock 50W shock oil in, and switched from AE red/silver, to red/front, blue/rear, as per Buddha's tip.
Works GREAT on super smooth asphalt.
Ride height 4.5mm front & rear, droop
1 front, 1.5 rear.

Yup, that setup should work well for a high speed, smooth asphalt track.

Got it and replied Steve....

@everyone:

I've been testing with the HPI Aero 2, and it is a killer body. Guys, if you haven't picked it up already, make sure you get one. It works really well where the protoform stratus 2.0 but has much more downforce in the rear. I think the Alfa is a bit better on the tighter layouts, but the Aero 2 will work fine.

Yup, it has dimples for both the Pro4 and the older Pro cars...And, unlike the Losi Alfa, they are not off!

I have been runing the Aero 2 on my PRO4 and it is definetly an outstanding handling body. Like stated above the holes are exactly where they need to be.

Later,

First weekend out with the car and I have to say the HPI has a WINNER in this car!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Stock setup plus a change to 40wt oil for a slightly rough outdoor concrete parking lot track and this car was on rails!!! The amount of corner speed the car carries is incredible but what is even better is that is does it effortlessly!! The car does not look as fast as it is because it is so smooth!! Seeing that I did not have any spare parts yet I opted to run stock today. The car was so nice that it was running mod lap times and would have qualified in the 2nd spot in mod. Needless to say, everything went great today. I had one incident in which a turn marshal was not paying attention and I hit is foot which stopped the car dead in it tracks and no gear problems. The only thing of concern was the rear diff coming loose. Planning on looking into that tomorrow nite. After having raced a Losi for over two years, this change was a tough one but I am so pleased that words cannot explain. The car got many looks throughout the day as well since it is the only Pro4 in town. (For now that is) Thanks HPI!!!!!!!!

Don't worry Troy, people will always give you plenty of weird looks anytime you go to the track
