Default Eric, Thad....

has HPI considered making lightened steel outdrives for the Pro 4 in the future? The new AE's ones are very nice.

Thanks for the tip I,ve been so busy running up to 3-4 classes at a time that the most important things get left unattended Im glad I slowed down a bit now I will have a chance to make my pro4 better.

I think I would prefer the HPI one TBH, its thinner so less chance of being scratched and the pins through the ends to keep the alu ends on look stronger than the glue used on the other one.

I do... for stock and 19t makes a world of difference... faster acceleration. For Mod... the stock aluminum one is preferred.

31.50 eu is pretty expensive for a driveshaft.

I have run the graphite shaft with a 12 turn motor a few times and it's held up fine...so far. I mainly run 19 and stock now though.

I think increasing rear anti-squat will loosen the car up.

The car would have more steering while braking, and also a little more powering out of corners. Anti-squat only works when your on or off the throttle, not while coasting.

From http://home.comcast.net/~mlufaso/rc/index.html

Anti-Dive/Kick-up More anti-dive reduces weight transfer to the front on deceleration entering corners, and reduces caster. Kick-up makes front suspension stiffer and adds caster.

Anti-Squat/Pro-Squat More anti-squat makes the rear suspension stiffer, more entry steering, and reduce rearward weight transfer on power. Pro-squat will increase rear weight transfer on power
