What the mod does is reduce the amount of fixings that hold the top deck to the car and this helps to stop the car holding a tweak after a smash.

I have done the mod and race on carpet every week and can say it has made a differance.

However, titanium pins, arms or legs...that, I can ignore, cause those things can bent easily.........

Thanks for the options............also Thanks Zombies, I will look for JET and HPI stuff...
RookieSolara,

www.precisionrc.com sells a lot of Jet parts for the Pro 4. The price is excellent. The shipping is also awesome. My parts came in 2 days which is amazingly fast since they're located in HK (Note: Only with EMS shipping service. ~$13.00 which is an excellent deal)

Can i use a Dremel wit a proper bit to machine the upper deck?
I dont want to ruin my upper deck because of the wrong tools....

It should be quite easy to "sand" out the holes with a carbide bit.

I think it would be pretty impossible to use sandpaper to do the top deck mod
A dremel will work fine, the cone bits good too if you have one.

Just work slowly with dremel and make sure there is an wooden board or some flat hard material behind the top deck when you drip so there is less chance it will chip...

here is my pro 4 with a body

(I don't know how the NSX won't fit since the s2000 can fit and I can still lower it couple more holes!~)
