Confused me..cause I thought HPI only had a kit that comes with everything?

I think he was trying to sell you a titanium screw kit with the pro4 cos as far as I know there is no version of the Pro4 that comes with titanium screws.

if you guys decide to outfit your cars with Ti screws... I highly recommend getting the Jwerks screws. made of 64 grade Ti. super strong and lightweight.

Default Question on ackerman

Guys,

If i move the inner* steering links to a rearward positions on the steering rack (like #2 or #4) does it give me a larger or smaller ackerman angle?

I am pretty sure sure that it will reduce your steering angle (less steering).

hello guys..
I'm going back to my roots again: Thinking of getting a Pro 4 ( Pro 3 was my 1st car! )
Some Q's i'd appreciate your (honest) answers:
1. Is it easy to dial
2. Do you suffer from chassis tweak. Can it be remedied
3. As durable or more durable than other cars out there?
4. If I do get a kit, what essential parts do i need?

FYI i drive on asphalt, medium and high traction, highly technical and another fairly high speed. Currently I'm driving an extremely fast and obedient CGM. Very happy with it but just want to drive a HPI.

I'm pretty much sold on this baby but it's only from pics, not from other driver's experience.

Thanks for answering!

1. took me a while but it was really my first competitive car
2. can get tweaked there is an upper deck mod for this
3. very durable , only thing ive broken was a C-hub
4. You should get some spare gears, arms and hubs other than that nothing really.

Cheers,

Mossie

1. Very easy to dial. Pretty much straight out of the box it is dialed.
2. Chassis tweak is very very minimal. Easy to correct if it occurs.
3. It is very durable. I have only broken one, one-way gear...Thats it!
4. It is worth buying option sway bars, pivot blocks, spare one-way gears, pivot block spacer(anti-dive, kickup)etc

1. Yes
2. It does tweak, but not as bad as other cars do. It can be fixed by laying the chassis on a flat board (no tires), pressing down, and rescrew the upper deck in a star pattern.
3. The suspension is very durable. Drivetrain-wise, you may strip gears with a hard hit using a one way or spool. That happens on all shaft cars though. The front dogbones bend pretty easily, but stronger TC3 or TC4 dogbones are a direct fit so most people switch to those.
4. Essential parts: sway bars, spool (for the tight tracks), stronger front dogbones, different toe-in blocks
