Don't crash

See what everyone else at your local track runs. On carpet is usually Purple/Plaid or Double Pink Cyan

Personally I like TRC's much more than the JACO's. JACO's are a bit grippier but chunk a LOT easier.

sorry, I should of said this is for the bevel gears, not the diff balls

looking to try anything really, as long as it will keep the drivetrain nice and free...
apply Paragon Ultralon to the gears. liquid PTFE dries dry and doesn't attract dirt. I also apply this to arm pins. pivot balls, just about anything that has moving parts.

FINALLY!!!

Even if I was able to already break in the diff screw which prevents the usual diff screw loosening issue, would still want to have this as a permanent solution.

Although my Associated Diff Screw Assembly just arrived today (which was stated as a solution), I would still want this.

You heard wrong. The Pro 4 is excellent on foams, as any touring would be. It's just a matter of set-up. If, you need a starting set-up, just ask.

Here ya' go:

*Stock chassis & top deck*

-Springs: 25 lbs. - Front & Rear
-Shock oil: 35 wt. Trinity
-Pistons: #3 (stock)
-shock bladder: firm (stock)
-Shock positions:
front: tower / arm - #3 / inside hole
rear: tower / arm - #2 middle hole
-Ackermann:
steering plate / steering knuckle
stock postion / position #2
- camber link positions:
Front / Rear
standard standard
spacers under inside link:
Front / Rear
2mm / 3mm
-pivot block:
Front / Rear
3.0 / 2.5
pivot block spacers:
Front / Rear
(under front forward block only) .5mm / none
-Droop:
Front / Rear
3 / 3
Toe:
Front: out - 1 degree
Tires:
Front / Rear
Cyan - 50/35 shore / Magenta - 35 shore

*Use harder shores (plaid 50/40 shore & purple 40 shore) in warmer weather.

Note: This is a fast set-up. I used a 12t double, on a big track (150 x 85). If, the sterring is too agressive, use heavier oil, a stiffer spring, less droop and a harder tire up front.

Also: Camber: neg. 2mm - front & rear
Ride Height: 5mm - Front & rear
Caster Block: 0 degree

Guys, the previous is an aspalt set-up.
For Carpet: (stock / 19 turn )

- Use 30 lb. springs, 60 wt. oil (trinity) - front & rear.
- 2mm spacer under front inside camber link & .75 under rear inside camber link.
- 2.0 pivot block in rear.
- Use outside holes for shock towers and front arm location. Use middle hole in rear arm location.
- Camber is -1.5 mm front & rear.
- Ride Height: 5mm - front & rear
- Droop: 4mm - front & rear
- Caster blocks: 0 degree

I haven't had the opportunity to run rubber on my Pro 4s, yet. If, you can wait a few months, after the hpi challenge, I'll have a dialed rubber set-up - (LoL). I live on the northeastern sea board (Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, New York, Maryland). Foam tires are the norm (asphalt or carpet). They give so much more traction. Try the stock set-up. It should be an excellent starting point. Sorry, i couldn't be more help, in that area.

It's ok. The setup I am running is pretty decent. I copied it off of HPI's site.
I just like trying other's setup to get a different feel.

Most of the tracks around here pretty much stick with rubber on asphalt and foams on carpet.

Hope this helps
I have had a few PMs about dry glide so heres a link..................
http://www.crc.co.nz/item_prod.asp?pid=191

It comes in an aerosol rattlecan, sprays on wet , touch drys in 10min, absorbs into gear over 24hr by which time has fully cured.
It leaves the gears with a soapy/slippery feel, got to be good.
