Default I'm thinking of getting a Pro 4.

What are the pros and cons of this car. Is it durable? Is it better than a TC4?

Hi guys,
just asking for future references that how long will you all think the Pro 4 is going to be famous and competitive?

Cheers ,
Ken

Until there is another revolution in the design of the tc.
I'd say a few years yet.

Hello. I just keep running the Associated springs also. They are readily available in my area. I've been running copper (25 lbs) rear and purple front (30 lbs) for carpet. Sometimes purple rear also or yellow (35 lbs) front.
The pistons are like this
#1 - 1.3mm
#2 - 1.2mm
#3 - 1.1mm
#4 - 1.0mm
#5 - .8 mm (3 hole)

take care
john

I didn't know PRO 4 is not famous in the 190mm elect scene at all....? Roar National title, some indoor carpet title, Japan touring title....Pro 4 does not win all of those but defintiely top 3 finsih.

Lately, where are the Losi and the TC3...? I only see Pro 4 and Xray at the top rank finsihes...

Erik Shauver or if anyone knows for sure...



Can you explain the relationship of "Inboard Toe" settings and the regular "Front Toe"?

examples...

what if i run 1deg Inboard and 0deg Front toe?

or any other combo.

thanks.

i understand the higher the Inboard Toe setting the more aggressive the car handles but how does that work in relation to the actual Front Toe of the wheels?

Nexus: Like any suspension adjustment, almost everything effects everything else, so the adjustment of the inboard toe will have a very slight effect on the outboard toe setting. However, in this case, you set the two different adjustments independently. Use the inboard toe to adjust mid-corner steering response and use the outboard toe to adjust either straight line stability (toe in) or initial turn in (toe out). Also, any time you make a pivot block change, you will need to recheck your static outboard toe. Hopefully, this is what you were looking for.

are the delrin diff halves a little thicker? seems like i had to remove some shims when i switched them over last night...

one thing i like about this car... it has maybe the free-est driveline. with the bearings sprayed out, and gears shimmed- spins fo-ev-a!

anyone have the part # for the lite driveshaft? i am trying to get the lightest rotating mass i can.

Looked like new chassis and ball cups. They say HPI molded on in the side.

actually the ball cups are not new...they came out with them when the PRo3 was released. I did not like them...they developed alot of slop quickly.

The chassis looks like fiberglass..........
Might be to get even more flex, over the 2mm/2mm carbon chassis combo!
