Black-Knight,
where did you get the fan for the speedo? I'd like to get one of those for my Pro3 with Novak brushless.
Thanks

One of my friend will order soon one kit. Since he doesn't want to spend money on 64dP pinion gears, he was interested to know the diameter of the stock spur gear or an approx. 48dp teeth number.
thanks

Actually, I find it quite ugly. It's like a big mess of carbon fiber. I like the cleaner lines of the the stock kit. they've had better kits. Just my .02

anyone have problems assembling the rear drive axle?

after following the instuctions and using the proper spacers i can not install the rear drive cup due to insufficient space.
the c-clip that holds the spur gear in place does not allow the cross pin to be fully inserted into the hole.

any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!

When i was building mine i did have to double check this step twice. The cross pin will fit, it's just a tighter as a result of shims. I used small pliers to fix the pin into place. Once together u will see that its all ok.

anyone have more testimonials as to how this car performs on the track? car looks sweet but id also like to get feedback on how the thing drives/handles. would also like to hear if there are stuff that need to be improved (there are usually a couple in every car) and how "tough" the car is compared to other tourers out there. does it have any gear stripping problems like some other shaft cars out in the market? sorry for all the questions. i may get a new TC mid 2004 when i gather up enough funds for one and the pro4 is a likely candidate. but id like to get the whole picture about this ride - good and bad points. thanks!

I am also considering the pro4, I looked at the parts yesterday on the pro4, I noticed they're very light, which means (stiff) i.e good for running, no so good during hard impact.
I am new to RC, perhaps pro 4 is too pro for me? I need to have something that can withstand resonabe force impact....
suggestions?

PRO4 is the best , tons of steering without sliding, smooth drivetrain, stiff chassis

If you run modified, bevel gear may be brake if you crash but it still driveable.

I conducted a good session of testing with my Pro4 yesterday, along with a 6T hacker, so the car got a good work out.

Car steers great, if the rear does slide it's very progressive and controllable. I ran kit setup, except for 40w oil in front and 30w in the rear. I used Sorex 32 compound tires.

The 1 issue i encountered with the car was that the rear diff kept loosening it self, i'll be rebulding the diff tonight and using a little thread lock on the diff nut.

Well when you can make 40 dollars on a 10 cents piece of aluminum, why the heck not? I may just have to start my own line of hopups.
