Aku-Man, those parts look great!

Also, has anyone have any problems with the front suspension parts breaking? With my old Brokomo SD, the arms/knuckles/hubs always break because the bumper wasn't wide enough. But then they came out with the wide bumper and some people report no breakage. I was wondering if there was a wide bumper for the Pro 4 besides the BRP one, and if you've had any accidents.

The new HPI racing pinion is very nice. Thicker teeth than any other brands.

In thicker ,do you mean wider in width or fatter teeth? I thought I seen a sway bar set also. What about wt. on the pinion, is it more rotating mass?

The PRP brace is great... haven't broken any gears yet...and have a stock pile of gears just in case.... looks like the brace and gear will last the whole year without any problems.

JDM has mendtion the HPI brace is heavier.

Default Tub Chasis?

Anybody hear about a tub chasis for the Pro4, kind of like the yokomo cgm. I don't know if it is true, some guy said he saw something about it in Japan.
If t HPI did come out with a tub for this setup it would make working on the drive-train a lot easier without a top deck

Haven't heard of a tub chassis yet...that's a new one on me... Mabey Dave in Japan know something....

top deck or no top deck...you still have to unscrew the 6 screws holding the diff case together...

Domo,You dont really need hop ups on the Pro4..other than the bling bling.. So far I have not broken anything other than a ring and pinion,But that was due to a big time punt,I was shocked I finished the race.I guess some tracks are just not as rough on cars as others.The car has held up very well,I have spare parts but have not needed them...yet
