26mm will work fine Im running 28mm foams.

BTW the body on Hara's car is a Mazda 6 look at the pics from the front. you can see the distinctive moldings for the "brake cooling ducts"

Its obvious that you are a racer otherwise you would not care! I hope you did not take my post personal because it was meant as a general statement not to be directed at anybody! I am sorry that they do not have any more arms left. KT Hobbies does show almost everything except for arms.

It is odd that arms are basically the main part BO??? Didnt somebody say that HPI sends parts every three months? If that is the case I would imagine that the distributers probably did not anticipate how popular the car was going to be after the Pro3 so they didnt order enough parts.

Naahhh...not taking anything personal.

I think it's pretty clear at this point that it's not a distributor/LHS/customer issue...it's an HPI issue. Ultimate *is* a distributor, they've ordered tons of stuff, they're selling lots of the cars...yet they've gotten almost no parts. They have a TON of shock rebuild kits though...seriously, they're set for months.

It looks like just about every distributor got 10-20 sets each...that ain't gonna cut it...LOL Each Hobby People got a set...I found one set tonight in Lake Forest (right by HPI). There are a few more HP stores in the LA area that show them (1 each), but a bunch that are out. The one I was at tonight had a one-way, main shaft, bumper set (everyone has those), sway bars (silver)...and I think that was it...oh yeah, the arms .

I'm going to try and set up a complete front gearbox, ready to go...so I can just pop it in when I break the gears again...

I bought the Tobee inputs from Speedtech, so I have the stockers, I bought the one-way tonight...I got the gearboxes last week...gotta go through my bearing collection (extra new ones and the ones I find around the track at SoCal...LOL) too see if I have enough to make it happen yet.

I'm probably not gonna race it if I don't have any spare arms (because I don't drive too good), but maybe I can at least get it back together now...at least close. I need to see if the diff outdrive rings from my Pro 3 will fit.

I'm very impressed with the way the Pro 4 handles, last night I finished 1st in the A Final at my local club which I have never done before (come close quite a few times). The car was great all night and I had some very stiff competition.

Is there any news on those carbon fibre upper link mounts that Hara was running?

Default Parma Alpha

I have to agree with Doug and Ray the Parma Alpha is kick butt! By far the best handling body I have ever run.

Ray, whats up? Give me a call tomorrow if you get a chance I finally have a day off.

S15Racer, I don't know of anybody running a PRO4 at Fastlane this weekend. There is a few of us that have them and they are just flat out awesome. Sounds like they work just as good on carpet as they do asphalt. If you are interested in seeing one I can bring mine up there for you too see. Just let me know I am only about 5 minutes from Fastlane.

Later,
