Looks great X2. Hey, from the looks of the picture are your rear wheels rubbing on the rear ball caps? Looks like there is a little wheel dust on the ball caps. Most of us have had to take some material off the top to clear Take-Off and Yokomo wheels.

Yea I have taken some material from the ballcups, I just think that was an old set of wheels that got mis-shaped during racing.
Im gonna take some more of the bull cups anyway.
I should have cleaned it before I took a photo

There were a few guys locally that was having some weird handling issues and after looking their car over we found the rear wheels were hitting causing the car to bind up and spin.

I wonder where in the states we can find some of those purple motor spacers? Looks trick!

The upper deck mod is great. I have many crashes today. I didn't notice the tweak.

Hi, Im looking for a comparison on the Hpi 4. Ive been racing for about 7 years with my tc3 and i grow tired of it. I will be racing on carpet and I want to have your opinion on which is a batter car the Xray T1 Factory Team or the HPI pro 4. I know many of you will say, but rustler753 they are the same...its the driver that what counts bla bla bla...and the avereage driver say
corny example:
OMFG!!!!1111 dude get a tamiya or
stay with the TC3 it rules!!!1111......

but I want a pros opinion, whos racing for a while and actually has wins under his/her belt. Why is the (xray or hpi ) better? What makes it so special? which has a better drive train? Which is lighter? Better design? More balanced? Which chassis has the least amount of flex? Which drives better and haddles with precision? Which one you don't have to mod much or even at all to get it to perform (unlike the TC3 which needs modding like a mofo). I know you are professionals and I want your professional opinion, because we all have our preference and I want to hear them . Speak up ! Let your voices be heard!!

peace out

springs for the R40 and HPI's 1/8 GP are 20mm long and should fit the pro4. why do you need short springs?

Default Boiling new gearsets?

Anyone know if HPI suggests boiling the new bevel gears sets like the old ones? Sorry for the repeat question, but I got the new ones and would like to get them in the car as soon as I can...

Thanks again.

I just put the BMI 3mm chassis on the car and the front shock tower is a lower profile and I cannot get ride hight below 6mm. I put the stock shock tower on and the lowest I can get the ride hight is 4.5mm. I am using AE springs which are about 25mm and I thought if I could find some shorter springs, it would help.


Thanks
