yup...
done all those in the Past..no luck..
I've inquired with RcModel and HobbyMania in HK...still waiting for reply.

Have plenty of the GT7 diodes.. that's what I'm running now.
If I can't find a Twister..I'll stick with the black dyed GT7 and have the stealth look..

As far as rear tow goes on the car will there be aditional pivot blocks with say 1*, 1.5*, and 2.0*? I know the car comes with the 2.5*, and 3.0.

May have to give them a call...
I've also ordered direct from HotBodies/RickyRcCar before...but don't want to pay Full retails price for it though... no rush to get one yet... since my car hasn't shown.

so... no comment on the Pro4 mini...hmmm...something must be in the works...

it's either new pivot blocks...or the same what Yokomo did...they came out with 0.50 & 1deg. rear hubs. probably cheaper to go with the graphite hubs than CNC aluminum parts.

On carpet with foams, we experimented a bit with parallel front blocks (a 0 degree block up front). If memory serves me, the part numbers should be in the 75151 to 75162 range (will check next time I'm at work). To adjust the block height, use the 75144 Pivot Block Spacer Set. It includes 0.5mm, 1.0mm, and 2.0mm spacers. They are stamped for easy installation.
Cool...aluminum blocks makes it easier to make adjustments.

Default Pro 4

As in previous posts - the Pro 4 builds like a dream.
Tips
Have a good Allen Driver (2mm)
Use a 3mm tap on some of the graphite parts (gearbox etc) only do not tap all the way - let the screws tap some of their own thread.
Take time on shimming the gearboxes and outputs as per the instructions.
Enjoy

Here's a start of some pics - not finished totally yet!
