hey guys

does anyone got their 28mm foam tires to work.

I am using 26mm right now and it works great. However I got a bunch of 28mm tires and I don't really want to waste them.

thanks

28mm work no problem........pretty much everyone in the midwest with a pro4 on foam uses 28mm jace, trc, parma, tm racing, ect.


Looks like one Pro4 is in the A Main at the Indoor Championships this weekend in Stock Foam....

Hey this is robk-
Right now Mike Pulfer is in the a stock, Eli Ezirow and Junior Norton are in the Masters tc a. Mike said they laid the front and rear shocks in the 3rd hole in. 2mm under the mounts front and rear. The track really has no really tight 180s and a lot of cornerspeed is needed. Mike P said the way to keep the rear tires from lifting is lay the rear shocks in. 80wt front and 50 wt rear with #3 pistons. Losi white and blacvk springs--30lb and 25lb respectively.

No swaybars!!

hey guys
how do you get the 28mm to work.
When I install them, they are scribbing the rear shocks ends plus it will scribed the front shocks bottom it you try to make a really tight turn.
the shims doesn't give enough clearence at all.

I have tried but they just don't work.
by the way, thanks for the tight carpet setup.

wow there is a big difference between the front shock oil and rear shock oil. does this kind of difference help the acceleration or something ?


thanks guys
