Anyone looking for a stiffer and more responsive chassis be sure to check this chassis out...... I was amazed at how much of an improvement it was over the stock chassis!!!

KevinK-good talkin shop w/ ya via e-mail-thanks!!

I looked at some things you mentioned and had lunch w/ Seaball to discusss ur cars on Sunday-and maybe with the arms flat on the chassis-the arms were too level. Raising them up has put some angle in them. I made some custom shims out of lexan thats about a mm thick. I'll start there.

YOur PRP cars lookin good.

rc-zombies-youve got a package in the mail.

Good point Erik...We tend to forget that the distributers are partly to blame. I just wish HPI could bypass some of the distributers and sell directly to the hobby shops...Or does Buy HPI sell Pro4 parts?

If HPI has parts in the wherehouse, can I come by and pick some up?

Thanks Erik-I think arms flat on chassis with the small tires I had is not optimal for the current track. I am trying higher hingepin blocks for these small tires.

Ray,

In one of you posts you mentioned "pro squat" and I am not sure what that is. I do know what anti squat is so is that just the opposite?

Thanks, Mike

I could have sworn that Ultimate Hobbies was a distributor...time to take a trip down there to see what's up.

So I take it that you guys have pretty much everything sitting there "on the shelf" at HPI, just waiting for orders? I wonder why nobody has stuff yet?

It's ridiculous to me that you have to get an "inside tip" from the Internet to locate spare arms for a touring car.
