plastic vs carbon fiber?... broken parts or durability?

pro4 is your best choice....

Thanks for the help.

Jeff
The simplest way would be to glue a 0.2mm washer (well 0.2mm total after gluing) to the zero of a droop guage/ block set. Alternatively, set the droop to zero and the give the screw a 1/8th turn or so, as even as possible per side.

Edit: However, I want to double check with Andy... as most carpet/ foam tire droop is measured over ride height... whereas rubber tire guys may do it from the guage only since the tires stay roughly the same throughout their life.

Getting back into racing after about a 2 month hiatus and found a problem. I had taken my car out to the hs parking lot and ran round with my firend tamiya and went colided a few times, not the point. The point is that some how I managed to break the aluminum servo saver shaft again! The last time I broke it was the last time I raced! And it broke in the exact same place to, about 5-7 threads up from the bottom. I built and adjusted the servo saver to factory specs so what could be causing this? Is it just something that happens in really hard collisions or what?

one other quick question, whats the best way to disassemble the ball bearings on the pro 4 to clean them? I've just been prying on the shields but this bends them slightly and I cant figure out how to get those little snap rings out to allow the shields to come out untouched.

I've never heard of that before. Did your car jump into that air and land on the bottom of the chassis?

Remove the sheilds with a sharp exacto knife. The end of the ring should look like this:

___ ___
___\ \___

You should be able to catch one of the pointy parts of the ring and pry it out. It may take a few tries.

I dont know if this is what was asked but I dont know how to get the bearings out of the knuckles and hubs I feel im going to damage them if I force them out. How do people get them out?

Cheers,

Mossie

Large flat head screwdriver. It needs to be wide enough to span the gap between one inner race to the other.

I didn't think any of the pro4 kits came with titanium screws
