IC.. but could it be caused by the E clips?? I wonder why HPI came out with that existing method of fixing the spurs.... how about the Square SHP-16 spur adapter that is made from a one-piece allow...????

I had a bit of side-to-side play in my spur gear, so when I came to rebuild my car I tried adding another spacer behind the e-clip, this didn't work because I couldn't then get the e-clip on. Instead I moved the spacer from behind the e-clip and placed it further back with the other 2 spacers. When this was done there was no more play in the spur, and I didn't even have to add any spacers . If you don't understand that let me know and I'll show you on the instructions

Hmmmm, interesting...

I was at the 6th Annual Hitec race this weekend, and one o the HPI guys told me that with the *new* gear sets it was important to use both the new Ring and Bevel gears together... Altohough I personally never had a problem with the original gears (in fact I'm still running th one that came with my original kit), I will be swapping them out for this weekends KoPropo Race at the famous Tamiya USA HQ..




On a side... Just wanna praise my PRO4 again... I was able to secure a solid 5th spot in the 19t A-main.. Qualified 5th, finished 5th... could have possibly made the last podium spot, but traffic was an issue... Lap times were there but unfortunately, there were a couple other who wanted it just as much as I did and decided to use their bumpers to get it...

I have been running this PRO4 for the last few months on a variety of different surfaces, and everyone I have been able to adapt and adjust quickly to with this platform... Quite a few people made snide remarks about me running the PRO4, but were very quiet when they saw how well we performed...

the adapter is worth getting. it takes out the unwanted wobble of the spur gear.

Default Stripped Servo's

OK - I've tried everything and can't work out why:-
I've stripped gears in 2 servo's and broken the splined shaft in another on my Pro 4.

The stripped gears came after a very 'small' touch onto track kerbing, the broken shaft was result of a neat 'take-out' by another driver with a direct hit on that side of the car.

I've checked everything is free and the servo saver is working (purple alloy one).

Apart from fitting a servo saver direct to the server has anyone any ideas??
Or any one else having this problem?

I know loads of people who have had the same problem, including myself. The best thing to do is loosen the built in servo saver as much as you can get away with and then, like you say, get another direct servo saver.
