They are on order I bumped into the president of Square R/C while I was checking out the Shizouka show these past few days in Japan.

well,I might have to add a pro4 to my HPI stable(alongside my R40 and 17 other HPI's)...now that HPI is going to do the challenge..

Two things....

Has anyone noticed any changes in later kits.....

And is that left turn problem still an issue?....

Harry, on your
recomendation I placed a
subscription.
One
thing I have noticed is no probs with
bevel gears.
If someone needs them I have a few spare sets to sell.

I think I did on my
first outing with the Pro4. Then I
discovered that one of the sway bar
retainer screws loosened up, and the
front right sway bar was
loose.
Doooh!

there is npo left turn problem...

Yesterday i went to race up at ottawa...

I had ALOT of crashes because I was getting use to the REALLY tight track.

The gears held up 125%

But right before the first qualifier, I took the bumper plate off because the screw hole got ripped. and i took it out for a run.

I broke the freakin suspension arm!

When people break suspension arms I think "how the hell did they break that?" But i guess it does happen.

I had to GLUE it back with CA.

It is not needed to say that i never finished a qualifier or the main.

DNF every single time.

5 lap first qualifier then the glue broke

12 lap second qualifier then the glue broke

16 qualifier then the glue broke

I don't know how many laps i did in the main.

I also drove very crappy, before the breakage of the arm i was driving good imo but after i broke, i slowed down considerably because i was scared to drive aggresively in the infield

How can I cure the twitch on my rear Pro4 when I turn in and out of corners. Only apparent on left turns
Quote:
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.
just wanted to know if this has been a consistant problem..and what solutions anyone has come up with..

it doesn't matter much....I'm suer alot of it has to come with building issues....and set up issues.....

I'd really like to know has anyone noticed changes in later edition kits...

Thanks..

This way,I know which supplier to get the car from..
