Oh ok, 30 is the softest, 60 is the hardest.
So for the o-rings, the softer it is, the less resistance it has.
For the bladder, the harder it is, the higher is the pressure.

Hope I've answered your question.

Keep in mind that this release info posted previously is for the Japanese market 2005 spec Pro 4.

The USA/ Europe 2005 Spec Pro 4 will have the following:
All standard Pro 4 features
+2.5mm main chassis (original main chassis)
+new upper deck (as shown -- more lateral flex, same fore to aft stiffness, reduced chance of tweaking on impacts, with cone washers and o-rings over the steering posts as used by Hara)
+new motor mount (as shown)
+new shocks (fluorine coated, new bladders, new pistons, new shafts, as shown)
+Delrin diff out drives
+new 1 piece aluminum rear input shaft (combines spur adapter and shaft, with solid pins, much more rigid gear mounting, different than Japanese spec parts)
+new aluminum front input shaft
+new diff nut and new diff screw (larger screw size + T-nut)
+aluminum steering servo mounts
+Spool and One Way will be included
+full range of pivot block spacers to adjust block heights
+0, 2.0, 2.5 and 3.0 degree pivot blocks included
+Heavy Duty, Self Lubricating Ball Cups are also included

While some will say it is simply the "same old, same old" Pro 4, it does address exactly what a lot of our customers and team drivers wanted changed. It moves the weight balance forward, the motor is easier to access, the diff holds its settings better, the shocks are even easier to rebuild and maintain, the shock are even smoother, the drive train spins more true, the drive train is even lighter, a spool is included, and more suspension adjustments are possible right out of the box. The only items it is really missing to be competitive on any surface would be a full range of tuning springs (or a 3.0mm chassis and front diff for foam tire carpet racing).

Call HPI and they will probably send you the backplate and v1.1 gears free. just tell them u got one of the old version kits. they should send it to you for free.

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.

Chirag Patel
You'll only need the front... no problems with the gears in the rear... the one-piece input shaft/spur gear adapter is great to have instead for the rear.

weights are use to balance the chassis...the batteries is heavier than the motor electronic side... I add almost 1 oz+ to this side .
