Hello all. I was wondering if any one else has tried ordering different toe blocks for their Pro4. Specifically Trackside guys: how is the parts support in Milwaukee?

Snowy - We were just talking about you a couple weeks ago ( Matt & I ) - more so how long it would be until you got a Pro4.

Trackside is getting parts in slowly. You'd have to check with Kenny or Scotty on the actual stock, but the plan is to fully support the car. The toe blocks are just now hitting japan from what I've heard, so I would venture to guess it will be about two(?) weeks before they start showing up on our shores.

They make several different ones.
Original recipe: "Extra Crispy"

Its the "Original White Lightning Self-Cleaning Wax Lubricant". the one with the blue label. I got mine years ago, and have been using it ever since.

However, its not the ONLY thing I use...

No, It's not a bad thing at all. We were talking about the car, and how he knew you'd be glad to see HPI having an awesome car after you had been running the Pro2, and tried the Pro3 - but finally ended up getting a TC3.

Are you going to be running it at trackside soon?

Greenfield News and Hobby has also been able to get Pro 4 parts in on a pretty frequent basis in Milwaukee Essnowyt. They don't have much in stock, but if you know what you need, 2-3 days and its in.

All the "Good" stores are in and around Akihabara which is kind of close to Asakusa. Check this link w/map:
http://liaison.ms.u-tokyo.ac.jp/agusta/akihabara.html

My top three for rc cars:

1. Super Radi-con (large selection and great prices)
2. R/C Champ (large selection; competitive prices)
3. Futaba Sangyo (good selection; great prices)

Also, in Asakusabashi, there is a new Mini-Z/Micro track. I don't have the link on hand, but if you are interested, I'll post it when I get home.

I think the KO radios have been left out of the synthesized revolution. So far anyway...

The Lynx 3D is no where near as hard a batteries as say a M8. I went to my a 1600mah NiMH pack over the included 600mah NiCD pack. So maybe thats the difference.

Quick question:

What type of track condition might call for the use of the middle post? Carpet with foams?

Will you two be at Fastlane next weekend for the HOA race? I would like to compare notes if possible. I have yet to put my center post in. Have not been on a track sticky enough.

I would love to see a synthesized module for the KO helios. Maybe they are working it. I know most of the big players like Futaba, JR, and Sanwa(Airtronics) have recently come out with them. It's just a matter of time....
