Thad or somebody else. Have you try Andy Moore`s Carpet world cup setup? What you think?

Jarrod: I use Hara`s Roar nats setup in carpet with little modifications ie original: one-way up front, 1.4mm front stabilizer and 2.5mm main chassis, and i like it

Our indoor clubtrack is highbite and technical.

Now i look a different setup and want to try that Andy`s setup before we started new indoor season next mounth.

Thanks

Hey guys, I just picked up a new Pro4 and want to set it up for foam. Does anyone know a good starting point or know where to get Andy Moore's set up for the carpet nats.

Thanks for any help.

Any good setups for foams on bumpy/rough asphalt?

Merry Christmas all

I have a bit of a problem with my Pro4. When I do the uper deck screws that hold in the steering rack posts and the bearing holder on the motor mount, the chassis doesn't tweak. When I do up the other 8 screws that hold the top deck to the diff cases the chassis gets a big bend in it. Any suggestions as to what to do?

Hi All,

How can I tell the different between the 73501 Ring Gear version 1 and version 1.1 gears?

And can I use the aluminum backing plate that came with my kit for the 1.1 gears?

Thanks.

The back of the gears is different, the 1.1 is beefed up. And you can use the alloy backing plate, its designed to go with the new gears on teh oneway.

Thanks.

I purchased a few replacement gears from my LHS but have no idea which version they are.

So can use the alloy backing plate with the old gears as well?

Only with the PRP backplate. The HPI one is too thick for the old gear

Mark, the easiest way to tell is to look at the pinion gear. The large part of the gear on the older ones had nothing behind it compared to the larger part on the new ones that are molded with a solid back to them. Clear as mud I bet. The older version ring gear will have a slight bevel to them on the backside but the new ones are flat for a small area then have a deep bevel to them. The version 1.1 gear alum brace will not work on the older version gears but the PRP brace works so you can be covered that way if you have older gears as well.

Looks like all the gears I got from my LHS are 1.1's. Just in case, I have picked up PRP units in case I need to run the old gears.

Thanks for the info.
