I have been Running My pro4 for a Couple of weeks Now with good Results. But, My car Really Holds a Tweak I Will not hit anything and When I do a Visual and Tweak station test the Car/Chassis is Tweaked. I Can twist the Car back Straight Again By hand and it is Fine. Please Help I have never had a touring Car hold Tweak Like this Before, and Yes I tried the 4 Hole Top Deck Mod But Car still holds Tweak. I can Twist the Car By hand and it stays Twisted. HEELLLP!

Try a 3.0 mm chassis from B.M.I. This chassis is awesome. Battery slots are milled and it seems to stay in tweak. Just my .02 cents

Take a look at the Team Prp Chassis. It gives you a longer wheel base option, top plate that acepts larger spur gears, side gaurds and a plate to keep the spur gear from flexing. It is one of if not the stiffest chassis for the pro 4

Here is a link http://www.teamprpracing.com/

dmatter:

if you're running indoors on carpet the PRP or BMI chassis is great choice ... very stiff.

for outdoors stay with the 2.5 or 2.mm optional chassis.
you will loose traction with the thicker chassis.

are you screwing the upperdeck in a star / criss-cross pattern?

Does anyone have a Pro4 mod setup for SoCal (or any other prepped asphalt track)?

Thanks

would a stiffer chassis in general be better suited for rubber or foams?

Thanks in advance!

Most likely indoor w/foam.

I have a brand new BMI complete chassis set available for sale if you and anyone else is interested.

Regardless of foam, rubber, asphalt, or carpet a stiffer chassis will always do the same thing.

In general a stiffer chassis will reduce flex giving the car a more sensative consistant feel.

The more flexible chassis can provide extra grip though chassis flex but the added grip is typicaly not consisant and can numb the car's response.

No regarding the HPI I can say that the stock 2.5mm chassis is well designed and much stiffer than those included with other cars.

in your shopping cart is will usually say if the item is out of stock.
and yes on check out..it will ask for payment method etc. and shipping info.

If your are hesitant..being your first time order... email them a note to verify items you want are in-stock or not. Terence usually replies within a day. due to time difference. if you're lucky and catch him very early am..like around 7am Pacific time.. he'll reply back within minutes... Tell Terence you were referred by me.. Ramon . so that I can get more free stuff... j/k.

after you have paid your order..
You'll get several emails giving you status of your order and when it ships.
