For Pro4 owners, this Square part is highly recommended. Very nice to have.

Wyd- You're using white springs all around on carpet?!? Is that a good set-up for you?

Actually scratch that, what type of springs are those, i dont know the weights on HPI Springs. I use Xray Springs.

in the manul it tells you 6.4 ~7.2 for gear ratio of stock motors.
I ran 7.7 and the motor got super hot.

Changed to 8.2 but motor still got real hot

The arms are pretty tough. I caught a board that was sticking out in a sweeper by about 1", stopped the car dead in it's tracks - batteries broke the tape, and ended up even breaking a battery bar. Nothing but the battery bar broke.

I have only run this car on indoor asphalt and once outside about a month ago. Those are Rayspeed springs on the car in that picture.

aku-man,

what's so good about those?

I think titanium is better then aluminum because someone actually broke the steal one not too long ago

Square's website explain it, but I cannot translate Japanese. My english sucks, hard for me to explain. I don't trust Square's rear Ti input shaft because they did not do good job for SD.

raving-monkey, Order oversea.



This is the translation from Excite. Kinda weird, but....
an input shaft and a SUPA gear -- a hub -- unification GATA is lost and a rotation loss is reduced.

Maybe I'm not looking at this correctly, but how do you get the bearing between the area where the spur mounts and that flange???

That area is for spur gear. Not bearing.
