Default AE plastic CVD's

They will definatly work, Ive got one temporarily on my car now.
They are great for stock racing when being used in the back (wouldent recomend in the front unless you have a diff), as they are lighter then the alloy versions. Also, the pin that goes into the diff outdrive is a touch shorter, so when you have an accident, instead of the CVD pulling one of the little purple rings that go around the diff out drive off, the bone comes out and the ring stays on, no more lost rings and the pin is still long enough to not do any exess wear to the out drive

I have been running the TC3 composite outdrives on my PRO 4 with a 19 turn Spec motor and they work great and because the dogbone is slightly smaller you dont have to remove the diff ring to fit on a standard diff.

If you find one wheel binding check the spacer between the bearings in the hub. If it wears slightly when the wheel is tightened up the bearings will bind. Just use the 0.2mm shims with the plastic spacer.

It has the best bearings that I have ever received in a kit to this day! I do not know if there are any better bearings on the market short of ceramic bearings.

HPI Pro4 spool is now available from Towerhobbies at $14.79 each

Also, in reply to an earlier posting on the Delrin outdrives...I have been using a set with a spool (using Losi XXX-S friction pads) for the past 3-4 months and have never broken them. This is the set that was purchased at Apex hobbies in the U.K by a friend.
