I notice if the battery packs aren't build correctly they will be prone to come out of the car in accidents. Gluing cells of your packs together also helps.


BTW- Nice to finally see your pictures Trinity2!!

If the packs are unglued they are less likely to come out since they can comform to the battery slots. Now if they get out of alignment, yet they will come out.

Yeah, i have a Trinity`s battery jig for that job and i usually use Team Orion silver bone batterybars whose are quite thick than normally (?), so they keep cells in strong line.

I never use glue between the cells, i don`t know why?

And - nice to finally get out my pics

has anyone had any problems with the servo saver on their pro4?

the other night I noticed my steering was binding up? the steering plate was hitting on the pivot block... anyway stripped the car the next morning and the area where the spring cap (75143b) screws onto the servo saver (75143a) had deformed by about 1mm, its hard to describe, I should of taken pics...

anyway, when i went to remove the cap the end of the servo saver literally snapped off... was it a faulty part or did I not assemble it correctly?

(the car hasnt taken any hard hits, and i've only run it in 540 and 27t sofar)

Your f/r block is most likely bent as well. They start rubbing the steering plate if they bend from a hit, etc.

Has anyone played with changing the front C-hubs yet? just wondering what you've done and what you found.

what is your current set-up?

Where does it need more grip, entry, mid or exit?

my current setup is stock but with the gold springs on bak and silver on front.

it needs more grip at the rear i think as when i come out of a corner it just spins right out and when on the power it spins of to the right.

thnks for ur reply

pro4racer,

Try to put the gold springs up front and the Silver in the back, this should make a huge difference!!

You can also go to bigger hole pistons as this will give you more traction from the suspension......
