Xenon Racing makes the Alloy trasponder holder... also OVA makes a lighter Durlin version..
Speedtech should be able to get the Xenon version if you hit them up since they are a Xenon Dealer

and do you just replace that metal plate or you have to replace the diff balls as well when rebuild?
i generally clean out the car every week. but thats not a rebuild job.

every one month would be good but if it is not to serious racing every 2 or 3 months. i try to replace the diff balls and diff plates every half year just to keep it fresh and in good working order.

Does anyone know how much weight could be saved by going with the bearing adapters and using the smaller bearings?

zero...
the smaller bearings are fragile...you'll end up replacing them more often than not...

has anyone encountered the problem where the steering is bound up by the steering hubs?

the only way i can loosen the movement left/right steering is by unscrewing the top ball stud and bottom screw.

Thanks in advance!

It sounds like your over tightening the screws. tighten the ballstud screw and bottom screw until they are just snug then back off about 1/4 turn.

Thanks for the quick reply

GTX is impossible to dye..

the GT7 is dyeable with Rit fabric dyes.

Racer...I hear your problem....I solved it by filing the inside of the C hub until the steering was free.If you do as the book says the steering block still binds in the C hub.

The problem is the chubs and knuckles do not fit perfectly...they have some binding. Just sand the top of the knuckle a little and it'll free up nicely.

This was noted by HPI and you could probably read about it waaaay back on this forum. At this point the newer parts may have a running change but I'm not sure.

Default Carbon fiber parts

Ok, I have 2 sheets of carbon fiber one 1/16" (1.6mm) and one 1/8" (3.1mm). I am thinking about making some custom parts for my Pro4. Are there any parts that are currently available but need to be updated or changed to perform better. Also is there anything that is not available that someone would like to see made. All the parts I make will be CAD drawn and CNC cut. If anyone has any good Ideas for some parts and I end up using your Idea I will be happy to send you a few free parts.

Please let me know what everyone thinks.

Chris
