Hey guys-
Where can I get a complete set of HPI springs in one package? Do they even sell them that way? -JB

I got two questions-
1. What's the deal with the little ?chassis stiffener? thingie; is it needed?
2. Anybody have any problems with the one-way's bevel gear stripping; I heard the fix was a plate that braces up against the back-side of the bevel gear. Anyone recall the part # for it? -JB

Default FINALLY...

getting a Pro 4. Worked out a deal and it should be arriving next week.

Do people recommend getting the Spec 2005 front and rear gear sets? I emailed rainbow ten about it but they only have the rear. Cant wait to get it and start to work on it.

JayBee, the answer to your 1st question: The chassis stiffener / brace, is just that. It stiffens the car by re-enforcing the lower chassis and upper deck. It takes flex out of the car. Good for high grip tracks.

Thanks again That's the only part I missed, the instructions said nothing about it. So what's this stuff about a 2005 version; was something wrong with the original kits? -JB

Nah, not really. Just good R&D. Hpi's giving us an improved version of an already, killer touring car. Get one, if, you can.

Well... As far as major goes - the 05' edition has new, updated shocks. The car will have one-piece input shafts (front & rear), a modified upper deck w/ drilled screw holes to help eliminate any chassis tweak and will include a One-way and spool, along with option pivot blocks & pivot block spacers, etc.. The kit sounds like one of the most complete, high end, touring car packages around. You can't miss with this one.

102 tooth, but you won't need anything bigger than a 100 tooth.

Can you confirm that the '05 Spec comes with a spool?
