The PRP comes with a 3mm upper and lower deck with additional cutouts in the bottom to remove weight. It is a complete redesign. In addition to the two chassis plates you get side impact protectors with aluminum standoffs and hardware, the Truspin plate that sandwiches the spur gear between the plate and the aluminum input mount for better gear mesh and no flex, titanium hinge pins that are longer to accomodate a longer wheelbase or shorter wheelbase if so desired and a set of roll center adjusters. I have yet to loose a spur gear in 6 months of racing, still running the stock gear but I have had the Truespin plate on the car the entire time.

The Pro4 is race ready out of the box. You dont have to have all the bling like delrin diffs, alum caster blocks,etc. For carpet I would suggest 3mm chassis plates and a BRP bumper then go have fun!!

Ive had my pro 4 since they came out still running the original spur no tru spin just tighten the screws down in hex pattern . BMI chassis already has the battery slots beveled all you have to do is seal the chassis.

Yup, works well, ive used one since forever.
It helps supports the shell and helps stop the front wheel arches from starting to crack.

Yes, it is a 5th body post.
A quite common mod in nitro touring, and now in electric touring.
It helps to support the body under high speed/high downforce!

Just curious as to which body that is. It kind of looks like a 2 1/2 door sedan. Plus I haven't seen to many trunk lids look that long.

They don't paint there own bodies....they're painted by guys from Brain Grafix or TD designs... and all they do all day is paint bodies for racers.

Default Anyone race at So Cal??

Have any of you guys raced at So.Cal Raceway with your Pro 4? Im curious as to what type of tires/foams work best? And how are the pro 4's keeping up at So.Cal?

Also does anyone know where online i can get a orion/ hara Revolution motor?? Cant seem to find either the twister ESC's or Hara Revolution motor in the U.S. I have a regular 10x1 revolution but its not as pretty
