anyway to fix this or its my systems problem? im using the integy made set.

i also found that on both diff cases there were material scratched off where the beveled gear spins closest to, even with one shim on the bearing.

this is what i did
Looks like you have something on or in backwards. I don't have my car in front of me to compare untill tomorrow.

Actually with set-up gauges, EACH side should read 1.5 degrees for a total of 3 degrees (with the kit supplied rear block).
If the Car has been run already, look for a bent hinge pin. The rear hub carriers are indentical, so you can't make a mistake there.

The rubbing marks indicates some kind of binding going on. I would inspect everything again carefully. Might be that you need an extra shim on that side to keep the gear(s) from being pushed into the case sides under power.

Default 6mm clamping Hex Hubs

rc-zombies;

Glad you mentioned that about the ones from HPI. I kept my backorder with Tower just in case.

I am using some extra graphite hexes from the Pro-3, but they are a very sloppy fit on the axles and come off at every wheel change.

cutting material off the bevel gear makes it weaker. in an event of a crash..your bevel will bend/deform and may cause to rub agains the diff housing...

I highly recommend the PRP diff plate. it solve all problems of any diff problems.

If HPI doesn't have them...I doubt Tower will ever get them too... Look into the Integy/Altas one...they are identical to HPI's. I just got them for my car...and it's a perfect fit...and it's Purple.

I too have the graphite hex from Pro-4... put a little shoo goo, I mean very little... in the pin slot and it should stay in place...

why did you try to lighten the diff gear?

Anyways, 3 degree toeblock means 3 degree on either side totalling 6 degree as far as i know...

6 degrees Toe on a Touring Car!!??

3 degrees (total) is usually considered the Maximum in On-Road, especially on Electric Cars.

The HPI blocks are labeled for TOTAL degrees, right+left.

There is no TOTAL toe. The toe is per side. 3 degree block is 3 degrees per side AND NOT ADDED. The way you guys are explaining it. You could have 2 degrees on the right and 3 on the left for 5 degrees. That is wrong.

(just an example---->)And 2.5 on the right and 2.5 on the left is not 5 degrees. It's just 2.5 degrees.

Nothing is wrong with them. It's just a pain sometimes trying not to lose the spacers.

You know I feel sorry for Erik S. from HPI. He designs a awesome car like the pro4. Very well thought out good looking and great handling. But HPI drops the ball on parts support. Its been two months and still no arms available. They have hop ups but no spares for the car. I like the car, i havent had any problems as far as tweak. I have broken 1 gear, and 2 arms. I deserved to break it. They were very hard hits from dumb driving by me. But come on HPI. I would like to start pushing the car harder but too scared to because there is no parts. Maybe Xray has a job opening for Erik S.? Xray is my next car. I think I will just hang this beautiful car on wall.
