Chappi, all you have to do is remove the top plate. Its a matter of 12 screws or 13 if you are running the center brace to gain access to the spur gear. To get to the diffs it takes two more screws in the case, take the tire off, pop the ball cap off the c-hub and take the top of the shock loose from the tower and then the tower folds over for complete access to the diffs.

You could even possibly get away without taking the whole of the top deck off, just the screws at the rear of the car, and then the other 2 at the back of the diff case.

To be honest, it is a little bit of a pain to change the spur but it is nothing you can't handle. I'm used to the Pro 2 and Pro 3 where you could change the spur in a matter of seconds!

Really, the top deck is the key to the whole car, once that is off, everything else on the car is extremely easy to access.

Default droop

ive found going around left corners the car over-rotates more would applying more droop to one of the rear wheels give a more consistant cornering, ive heard of it mentioned just wondering if it works or any thing else i could try. car tweaks out fine and runs straight.

I was told to give the rear left wheel 1mm more droop than the rear right wheel to eliminate torque steer, I guess it could also help with that type of problem.

By more droop I mean that you get 1mm more suspension travel.

cHckbOY5 i think you should try what the manual tells u to do and adjust if theres problems like too much play or too tight and always test with the cover on and screwed.
hope this helps

Default What spare parts to bring?

Hi guys, I will be coming back to the r/c scene after a year of absence. I might get my pro 4 tomorrow and get it up and running in a couple of weeks. . I still need fresh packs (even for my radio), new motors, wheels and tires. Question is, aside from the suspension arms, what other spare parts do you bring when racing with the pro 4? Please fill in the list:

1. Suspension arms
2.
3.
