DANG!!! That looks nice! Who makes it? ANd I guess the BMI chassis donst have as much options as the PRP. Ah, if I race asphault should just keep the stock chassis? Or should I go with the PRP? THanks...

The BMI one is the nicest aftermarket chassis for the Pro4!!!!!!!

the chassis does not make the car super fast... it's how well you drive...

zombies is right, a chassis doesnt make you fast, its the driver and setup and how well u can drive your car that will make you "super fast"

I always thought, stiffer chassis is better for asphault or overall racing than the 2.5mm chassis

Well, both Hara and Andy Moore have been using the 2.0mm chassis outdoors this year....
When I replaced the stock chassis for the 2.0mm one I went faster right away. More traction all over the place!!

I have also compared the Tamiya EVO4 2.5mm chassis to the HPI 2.0mm chassis and belive it or not, the HPI chassis is stiffer!!

Default Pro 4 setup question

I have a pro4 that seems to be pretty hooked up. But I think it can be better. Does anyone have any suggestions on setup changes that I can make to make the car rotate throught the corers without making it too loose entering or exiting the corners.

I am running stock rubber tire.


Thanks
