On those Yok style Universals...where are you guys finding them? I use to have a CGM and had some issues when running a spool and the unversals chatter. Is this a problem with the Pro4 ones?

They are great pieces... i have been running a set in the rear only (spools up front) for about 5 race events now... very minimal wear on the delrin diff outdrives.... should do well as a front diff too...

Default Not to get off topic, I'm not bashing, but...

you have to wonder who writes this stuff. I read through Feb. R/C Car on the TC4 artical. The topic "Is the car durable" here is what R/C Car said, "The TC3 was known as an extremely rugged car." I'll leave it at that.

for the people who runs the Novak GTX, can you please post some pictures of your electronics installed?

just want to get an idea where to mount the capacitor. plus still deciding how to split the postive line. either at the motor, or create a "Y" connection.

Thanks in advance!

Totally off topic, but does anybody actually know what HPI stands for, if anything?

HPI > Hobby Product International

You can see it on some of the old products' label/packaging.

Hi guys, just wanted to let you know that we received another shipment of Pro4 parts today. We appreciate all your support during the month of Dec. The Pro4 parts sold out quick, and we will continue to do our best to stay fully stocked. Thanks again!
