Eric: Roll call please! So who's gonna be representing HPI at the Birds? Not sure if you remember me but I was running down at Socal for a few months till I moved out here to the East Coast. Hopefully HPI will make a strong showing. And I'll be making my showing at your pit area...LOL. I'm gonna need all the help I can get.

BTW...If you run into Hiro at SOCAL...bring him along. He's been thinking about going...so give him a little kick...errr...I mean...persuasion. What's there to think about. The weather will be great, lots of chics (if not at the track, at least in the city), plenty of sun, lots of chics....etc. See you there!

How in the U.S is actually sponsored by HPI for racing onroad...either factory or partial sponsorship?

Thad G.
Atsushi H.
?

Just wondering...from reading the UK and Asia Hpi sites it seems they field much bigger teams there?

Default Pro4

my pro4 keeps spinning when entering corner. Any solution that i do? Should front drrop be more dan rear droop? After tweaking my car the spring preload is more on 1 side compared to the other by alot. can i solve this by adding weight on the lighter side?

Make sure that your front arms (or even the rear arms too) are free and not binding. You could put heavier oil in front shocks or a smaller holed piston (like a #4 or a #5) or thinner oil in the back shock with a larger holed piston (like a #2 or #3), put a thicker swaybar up front, you could take more droop out of the rear arms, run more caster, etc. etc. All depends on your setup but make sure that there is nothing binding in the suspension movement. Binding suspension, uneven weight distribution, unequal droop and uneven shock lenghts will most likely be the results of your uneven spring preload. These are just a list of what I would do/check. Good-Luck and Merry Christmas! Hope this helps!

Default Issues with rims?

Has anyone had problems fitting various brands of rims? I went to put a set of Speedmind rims on my Pro 4 but the lower shock mount rubbed the rim as did the upper ball cup. I eventually had to install a set of ING rims as they are slightly taller and nothing rubbed.

Anyone else out there experience a problem like this?
