Yupe...just saw that....but not even HPI Japan has that news on.
But anyway, this PRO 4 is one of the few GOOD(correct) choice that I made in my almost 20 years RC life.

P.S.......who knows, HPI might crazy enough to get Marc on board as well............may be Masami too (I am just kidding Yokomo fan...)

Depends on the tape you are using. I have some Scotch 898 tape that is only good for one time and then I have some tape from KT Hobbies that is black and some tape from Speedtech that is purple that I can run one piece all day long. I do like to put new tape on for the mains just to be on the safe side at bigger meetings.

Why is that....? I found the bar, along with the SIDE long and short stopper very usefull and nice....2 clips then you can remove or mount the batteries without worry...........the only 2 times my batteries flew out was because I forgot to put those 2 body clips on the bar........it is the owner (me) mistake.

Yes, you should use new tape everytime to wrap the batteries after each heat or main.

I use new tape after ever other heat and new for mains..

I can tell you, that was embarrassing.......especially right in front of the nitro guy, and running the A-main...........actually, that 2 times was done at the same race, different heat....error X2.

I don't remember what I was smoking.........must be those 30 % nitro right next to me.

But Zoombie..........that extra 5 grams of weight are the key why your car is 0.0003 second slower then the others without.

If you use the strapping tape sold by Kthobbies, Team1RC, or Speedtech RC....you should be able to use it a number of times.

I've gone as much as 2 race days using the same tape.

If you're really worried about it I would just run the same tape for practice and the qualifiers...then new for the main.

Isn't it the HUB itself is always 0 degree toe.........the rear toe was set by using different degree rear purple toe block.....

Not 100% sure.....I am a electric newbie that forgot to put body clips on my battery bar 2 times in 1 day.
