Well if youre a tower member you can get 30 dollars off on a 200+ dollar order... ultimately youre only paying 259... not bad with the free shipping...

Two choices.
1: turn down down your EPA to put less excessive load on the CVD.

2: Buy some steel UJ's and leave it the same.

You may have to adjust your setup to compensate for the loss of steering travel when you turn down the steering travel.

Guo Chean : I'll test it at TITC 2005 this weekend. 3 world champion (Hara, Surikarn, Rheinard) join this race. I may ask Hara about setting. Then I'll let you know how it works.

I plan to sell 200 usd for chassis + upperdeck.

I have noticed that there is a lot of play in the wheel axles.
This after running only 30 batts. Most cars have some play but not as much as on my Pro4. Anyone noticed this on their Pro4?
Is it the bearings or the MIP wheel axles?

I've been running my Pro4 longer then that with no problems as you described.

---------------------

Does anyone know a site to buy the new HPI Aluminum Upper Camber link mounts or the Jet Racing Upper Inner Chamber Link Mount ?

Other then overseas sites...looking for something here in the U.S.

There seems to be a little more play than other touring cars in the front and rear hubs, but nothing to worry about.
