My other told me the same thing....which I will give it a shot and see, but more likley, I will just simply use the Schmy cup instead..

Just thought if HARA use it, it might be some like plug and play....but now i know it is not even close to plug and play.

Rookie,
take a pliers and pinch the ball cup,** while it is installed on the ball stud, **as hard as you can. It should free the ball cup, but still be pretty slop free.

i was thinking of putting a front diff in next time i go to bk's track again...
Hi Alan,
when are you going to test at bk's track? today?

I think the track still wet....

Is anyone tested with front diff and it solved the problem?

But how's the car handlering? it may not be the same anymore or may be better???

I correct

torque = force x perpendicular distance (Nm)

work = force x distance of the displacement (J)

If anyone is looking for a pro4 I am selling mine and will probably have pictures up in a couple days. It is mostly stock, but has the tru-spin plate and a ball diff instead of a one-way.

It was raced for 4 months on carpet. I am looking for $200 shipped anywhere in the lower 48. I only accept paypal.

If KT is out of the cups, call Adrian @ 813-889-9691. Schumacher is in Tampa, Fl. You might have them by the weekend.

I will fix the ball cups for free as long as you let me give you a demostration of the Tweak-O-Matic.......

If you still have the original 1.0 gears and using a one-way diff, you might want to try my aluminum backing plate. We haven't had a gear break since installing it last spring.

Thanks!

highly recommended... I've been using the PRP backing plate since it first became available... haven't broken any gears. Still running the original gears.

Is your backing plate same as the ver.1.1 backing plate?

Do you have any photo to show?

Any idea anyone selling this part in Singapore?

Thanks

the PRP backing plate is actually bigger than the HPI version.
it covers the entire back of the diff gear.

for pics check out the PRP website.
