any 190mm body will fit. most Tamiya will fit.except those that have a really low hood. front shock towers are a little high on the pro4. LIke hpi bodies.... tamiya bodies have the body hole dimples on them... only the front ones line up.

Hi guys,
Just wondering if any of you Pro4 drivers had tried using a screw to hold the bevel gear to the input shaft instead of the e-clip.

Well I did, and it works great!!
I taped a hole and used a square 2.6x4 titanium screw.
And the reason I did this mod is because, I find that after I correctly shim the gears, they will not break, instead somehow the e-clip will fly off the input shaft causing other damages......

It is something like Yokomo SD's input shaft except we still use the spring pin to drive the bevel gear.

Hope this help.

I've had my car for over a year now...and never had a problem with the e-clip coming off...

hope you lock-tite the screw to prevent it from coming loose...

Nope, use the 75142 shock set. The 75142 set is the standard shock that comes with the Pro 4. They come with the Pro 4 plastic shock parts and the correct length springs for a Pro 4. 72170 are not going to help much, the spring is too long, the plastic parts will be incompatible with Pro 4. Also this set includes rebound foams and the firm bladders. They would be good for your Pro 2 however. Street Price for the 75142 is roughly $35 per pair. They will also be easier to fit to other makes as the shock ends mate up to a plastic ball that slides over a 3mm screw, much smoother is use and easier to install and take off than a ball end that snaps on.

Erik Shauver.

Do you know when the HPI will be selling the aluminum camber link mounts and high traction arms?

I see them on the overseas sites and on japanese websites....but nothing here in the US.

Thanks.

Nexus, I'm not sure about the dates for the arms, but the aluminum camber mounts are too expensive to import. The street price would be extremely high (likely more than a main chassis for one!). The only camber mount option for the US market will be the carbon fiber version.

How would you gear using shocks with only a 45-56 mm stroke as opposed to the 48-60 mm stroke?
