Thanks for the reply... I might try using a spool soon as I get it.. but where to get it from???? or can I build it myself??

Look back a page or two in this post and also I started another thread asking how to build one. They are not available yet. I just took the diff balls out and locked the diff up solid... works fine.

Losi black? 25 lb spring
6* caster
camber link on inside hole
3mm spacers under ball end
1* camber
black sway bar
forward hole on steering arm
1.5 or 2mm spacer on susp. mounts
you may want to run .5mm kick up
1.0 toe block
0* toe at wheels

rear

37 shore tire
35 wt #3
all the way out on tower
middle hole on arm
1* camber
camber link on inside hole at chassis
inside hole on hub
3mm spacer under ball end
susp. mount flat on chassis
again, you may want to add a small amount of anit squat
no rear swaybar
hubs all the way back

2 diffs
ran the center post (you may want to try to run w/o it)
102 spur33 or 34 pinion w/ 9 turn epic
tires around 59 mm

you may want to try the rear camber link out on the hub

raising and lowering the camber link is a good fine tuning adjustment

I think KevinK ran very similar to this, he gave me a lot of advice and help. Big ups to Kevin! i'm sure he can correct me if I'm wrong

This is for med traction asphalt (sprayed parking lot) Hope it helps
Rob.....thanks for the info, I totally forgot kevin, yourself (and 1 other guy from RSJ) are the Pro 4 gang....I should asked this question at RSJ thread first....stupid me....anyhow, just got the car early this week, and can't wait to put them back together and run at the next point series race........then Winter time, I will be at RSJ and run with you guys....

Did you know that we converted EUGE to be a PRO 4 owner as well....? And Nexus is thinking HARD (very hard) to get 1 as well....I think the ROAR NATIONAL champion does help them to made their decision..........it does on me.

Do you need to "tone down" the steering? Or do you mean the car is too loose when cornering?

to tone down the steering, start with your dual rate adjustment on your radio. Also make sure your end point adjustment is correct.

to tone down the loose feeling, there are MANY basic setup guides available all over the net. The same basic principles which apply to setting up a 1:1 scall race car also apply to 1:10 scale cars. Start there.

You can use the stock sway bars in front and none in the rear... the front sway bar only will decrease steering and increase rear traction...

I was thinking about loosing the sway bar on the rear as well. I will have to do that now.

Do you all have issue with getting use to oneway? I have not run the car that much I just ran about 5 packs on this PRO4 so I still in the learning curve. I feel like I can't let go the throttle in sharp corner otherwise it will spin off, but if i keep the car on speed a little seem to be ok.

Is this the way one way is?

yes..you pretty much have to on the throttle going thru a turn with a one-way.... it's a lot of practice using a one-way for the first time...but once you've mastered it...you'll not want to use a front diff again... make sure you get the PRP one-way diff plate to help elliminate any possible gear strippage during hard impacts.

I bet the worst gear around is TAMIYA TBIII. I have that car and every time I hit anything..Stripped!

I looked HPI PRO4 and It does look better. I already ordered the oneway gears for spare, but I will definetly get the PRP plate. thanks

The prp plate doesn't fit the newly revised one way gears.

The new one-way gear is thicker around the edges.. the older version looks like the Evo-III gears...
