csilve

Sorry to hear about the bad luck in shipping, call HPI customer service on Monday and have them check tracking on the items that were shipped.

Default First race race report

I came back from the Pro4's first race at Santa Cruz Raceway. Nice track, SMOOTH surface, but low/med traction.

I can't really compare the Pro4 to any cars yet, because it was my first time at the track.

I put the car on the track and it was fast out of the box, kit setup, but sorta loose. Throughout the day, I decreased the rear droop, laid the rear shock one-hole in, and added anti-squat and the car felt better. After driving the TRF415 for a little bit, the on-power "snap" of the shaft drive made me have to learn throttle application again. I feel very good about this car.

Only thing today is that the Pro4 seems to have a very "floaty" feeling as if it drives on air. Not that it's slow, but can be hard to drive. BUT i think this could be the track or maybe even the worn tires I was running. Again, i've never been to the track so I have nothing to compare it with.

The Pro4 is so much better than the Evo3 mainly cause you won't strip gears!!! I had several board scrapes and crashes and the drivetrain is still smooth and quiet, undamaged. Very stiff chassis also. Much less expensive than a Tamiya. Evo3 is still fast though!

I think Thad Garner won mod tonite at SOCAL with his Pro4. It was VERY VERY fast.

I saw Andy Moore drive at the Donington Park Event last week, his Pro 4 was hooked! Just shows that the TC4 and new Losi Prototype can't touch the Pro 4

My Mi2 has been awesome and only gets better.
I know what you mean, I have a good selection myself. The Mi2 has been running well. I just wish I had more time to run the car and get a really good feel for it. I haven't done well because I just don't have time to run it, but the car has potential. See you around.

Thanks to your idea with that picture, i made also that "protection bar" system to my Pro4.

I use old plastics body posts on bought sides of battery and drill couple bigger holes in wright places and scruv them tight to chassis.

There was holes already in chassis plate so it was easy to use them...

I think, at that is solution for that pop out problem for Pro4
