Are Xray springs the only springs that fit? If so where can I buy an Xray spring set.

Cheers,

Mossie

some people say just use TC3 shocks and springs. They say it easier to maintain, but i am not sure. I just use the Xray springs.

I use the Rayspeed springs on my Pro4

If anyone happens to have a new set of 4 degree caster blocks and a set of steering blocks that they would like to sell let me know. Mine are still broke and Horizon Distributors show on backorder tiil May 12th. At this rate I'm really thinking of sell my killer BMI version Pro4. If anyone knows of a shop that has these parts in stock let me know and I will call and order what I need. This is really my only problem with my car.

Well just placed my order for some Pro4 parts. They show they are in stock so I will keep my fingers crossed that they do because then I can fix my car and race it again.

Default Pro-4 Glitching

Guys;

Ran the Car for the first time today.

Track was dusty and loose. Even with the poor traction I could have easily won in Stock, but the darn thing is glitching.

Monster Stock, freshly rebuilt and has ran perfect in my Pro-3.

LRP Quantum Comp 1, mounted flat w/1 piece of servo Tape.

Futaba 133FM Receiver (Brand New), mounted flat w/1 pioece of servo tape. Antenna mounted in the kit location, not even close to any Graphite.

Hitec 5925 Servo (Brand New), I have the same type in my Pro-3 and never a problem.

Battery slots filed properly and NO evidence of shorting on the Chassis.

Anyone else had/having problems and what did you do to fix it?

Thanks,
Steven

Use the Novak wiring harness they use on the GT7. I use them and it stops any glitching I had.
