Wow, awesome! Hara's painter will be proud

Anyone know where I can get those "hpi-racing" style decals? I used all of mine already from the v1.1 gears offer.

I run on a track slightly bigger and I ran 98/32 with a monster stock and it was great.. I ran a 34 first and my motor got way too hot.

Is it just me, or when I look at the body lists from RCCA of who is running what body at the races, I don't see any HPI bodies. Protoform/Parma's bodies can't be that much better than HPI's, can they? I ran a Dodge Stratus Aero 2 (190mm, and I thought way more pros would have HPI's Stratus 2 than they did. There wasn't one HPI body on the list) at the HPI challenge, and it handled wonderfully. Much better than a Lamborghini... What's the deal? And what do you guys think of the Pro4 vs. the TC3? Is it too close to call? Does it all come down to personal preference. I noticed HPI has much more carbon fiber, and AE has more carbon plastic. Thanks in advance.

To much off power turn in, any advice on how to cure this please.
One way up front, elligy 42's front , standard sway bar and gold springs , with kit oil in shocks at front. Lower arm shock in middle position, and shock mounted 3rd hole out. In an attempt to make the front end stiffer, less weight transfer.

Rear, ellegi 35's, orion 20 wt oil in shocks, removed sway bar, all the rest of the car is kit box settings.

I found with the kit box settings after assembly the car was allmost uncontrollable with waaayyy to much off power turn in.
It's improved a hell of a lot now.

Our track has a shit load of off camber turns as well which makes matters worse, but the other dudes in the club are all going alright, it just seems ths pro 4 all have the same problems.

Any advice is much appreciated.
Thanks
Wolf

Wolfracing, you could try some stiffer springs up front to decrease the weight transition as you come in to the turn, or put all of the weight (if you use it) in the back. Also on the roll centre spacers (under the toe in blocks) you can lower them to get less grip in the front, this will make it easier to drive. Jonathan
