Erik-
Looks good, thanks I understand now!

It would seem that those screws no longer hold the top plate down...am I seeing that correctly?

And from a suspension standpoint, both the spring and the angle affected the car… with data loggers we could tell exactly

Now that's an engineer's answer if I've ever heard one! ..... J/K Just kidding. I was just wondering if there was an explaination as to why that particular adjustment stopped the traction rolling.

You 100% correct. There is no wrong setup. Just some that work for each driver, if they chose to use the adjustments to try to make the car better.

Thanks and take care

Yes you are...It leaves 4 less screws to hold a tweak.

I called HPI yesterday about the shock caps, new ones will arrive later this week. That's customer service! I am going to trying the deck mod and balance the chassis with some weight and see if this helps the constant tweak. Thought it was just me.

Default Dont be fooled by the name!!

Hey Guys. I just went to the dark side... I was impressed by the Pro-4 Kit so I decided to go for it. I am very glad I did. I still love my TC3 but this car is SWEEEET!! I Tq'd right out of the box... very pleased.. I was wondering if any of you guys have found a good system for taking the motor in/out of the car. I was having a hard time with that this weekend... With the rear suspension being in the way and all. I know there might be something about that somewhere on this thread..but dont have time to look through it all!

Thanks in advance for any responses.

No he didnt....lol.........besides that was a list of guys going to the Gate this weekend. Are you going Brian? It seems like a bunch of the guys jumped at the last second to go so maybe you did as well?



Quicky.....get yourself a 2.5mm ball driver makes it much easier to get the motor in and out.
