Thanks

I think he's altered the sealing of the shock bottoms ;+)

where it would normally be 2 teflon washers and 2 o-rings

JohnB: Correct, the other blank is referring to up travel limiters. The teflon refers to the teflon seals in the shocks, but used outside the body (in addition to the normal internal seals), on the shaft. Then either an o-ring, an aluminum spacer,or both is added.

Looking at those spring tensions on the setup sheet associated purples front and coppers rear sound like that is what he ran. They are those spring tension.

I sold a TC3 and bought a used pro 4 (not version 1.1). Just want to stock spare parts as pro 4 parts are not commonly available in my area. What spare parts should I stock besides the obvious screws and nuts? Which parts are easily broken in a crash?

This question prob has been asked before, but can anybody direct me to a online hobby-shop to get hold of the woven carbon center shaft for the pro4?

Thank you.

Buy RCScrewz stainless screw kit. It has every washer, screw, nut that you'll need, except the diff screw.

Get extra diff and bevel gears. Shock collar set, foam rebound cubes, shock bladders, diff screw, MIP shiny cvd's, a-arms, ball cup set.

that should be everything you might need, untill you do a car rebuild.

hmm well jimmy jacobson was at my track and he switched from a diff to a spool and went a few seconds faster

but yeah diff does seem to be the most widely used.

Looks nice... but the only thing I don't like about the CF camberlink mount is that you have to use a lock nut to secure the ball stud..accessing the lock nut ain't all that easy and more trouble some... I use the Excell CF version that bolts on top of the original brace.
