You're better off waiting 2-3 more weeks and the US should have it. Only $290 for pre-order from Speedtech RC.

Pro 4 Tips from HPI Japans R&D Cafe, check the site for more:

in Engrish (sorry)

We would like to introduce Tips which it tries not to break the bevel gear.

1. Please adjust the backlash of the bevel gear appropriately.
Many times it explained this already, but backlash not to be the appropriateness (too multi, when be too little) is not, strength of the bevel gear decreases substantially.

2. Please boil the bevel gear at the hot water.
The material of the bevel gear has used the engineering plastic which designates the nylon resin as the base. Strength of the nylon resin receives big influence to humidity. The present way in the origin of the climate which is dried very there is a tendency which becomes brittle. In order to make the original strength of the bevel gear show, being to have the necessity giving the sufficient moisture to the bevel gear it does.
A) First, the hot water of the sufficient quantity is boiled. As for temperature of the hot water please make sure not to boil. About 80 degrees are good, probably will be. The bevel gear is shifted in your that hot water.
B) That temperature of the hot water does not rise too much, noting, approximately 20 - 30 minutes it does that way. When time passes, lowering the hot water from the fire, until the hot water cools down in normal temperature, it cools that way.
C) When the hot water cools down, very, please take the bevel gear and come out and dry the moisture sufficiently. This time without using the dryer and the like wiping off the moisture with the tissue, and the like it is good to dry that way naturally, probably will be.
D) Sort please assemble after the that usually.


3. Please be sure to paint the grease in the bevel gear. You are not concerned the grease at the extremely small quantity.

Presently, aiming toward further efficiency improvement, it is advancing the test of Pro4.
The high performance (high intensity & high accuracy, also sound is quiet) has tested the thing above now concerning the bevel gear. You think that with the good result would like to report to the cod and everyone.

R&D FUJIWARA

This thread seems like it died!!

To everyone who has a Pro 4:

How do you like your new cars? Is it really worth waiting for (the U.S. release)? What are the strengths/weaknesses of the Pro 4? Any info on the performance of the car will be appreciated.

Progress has been made...


I have built alot of kits in the last few months and i can honestly say that the Pro4 kit is fantastic, parts and fit quaility is 2nd to none.

The transmission is very smooth and free out of the box, just build it as per the instructions and amendment sheet. The kit lacks nothing!

Hi to all pro4 drivers.

I would just wonder if the existing different colour of springs for pro 3 could be used at the pro 4.

The 25-27mm Pro-Liniear springs should fit fine.

Its been over a year since I've had anything to do with r/c.... I had to sell all my stuff because I needed money. I've been waiting patiently for the pro 4. This will be my return to racing....I miss racing so much!!! Here's a pic of my old Pro 3...some of you may remember. Peace-

This may sound like a stupid question...........

Do the body dimples on HPI's bodies match up to the Pro 4's mounting posts? (Like all their other cars do)

Only the 2 front body post match up on the HPI bodies. The new Aero Stratus body..the Dimples are set for the Pro4. I have one and it looks great...now all I need is the car...
