Default RC-zombies...

do you know if the new motor mount works with the BMI chassis? Does the new diff bolt and t-nut woek with the older stock diff outdrives? Is there much wheel base adjustment on the Pro 4. Looking at the pics, I don't see any wheel base spacers. One more thing, does the Pro 4 have external diff adjustment? Sorry for all the questions.

Thanks

The stock car does have some small adjustment of the wheelbase by using the spacers in the rear hubs. However, the Team PRP chassis (www.teamprpracing.com) has a much larger adjustment for wheelbase as it allows different mounting holes for the pivot blocks.

You should have no problems using the new motor mount with the BMI chassis as all the mounting holes etc. will be the same.

You can use a dremel tool and cut a slot in the head of the screw. Then use a flat blade screw driver to get the screw out.
If your very careful you can usually get away with just a small nick in the chassis.
Good luck

take care

Does anyone know where I can get a HPI aluminum bevel gear shaft (16T/front) part number 31422? This is the last item that I need to upgrade my Pro 4 to 2005 specs. RainbowTen says that HPI has not said when they'd be re-releasing this item. Any ideas?

get an old "L" allen key, put a drop of CA on the end and insert it into the screw, wait overnight for it to dry and then remove the screw.

TRC (Trinity) now produces 28mm foam tires (black, spoked rims). Also, Parma and Jaco sell 28mm foam tires (white aero-dish rims). Your LHS should carry them or be able to get them. Plaid (50/40 shore) front and Purple (40 shore) rear are the standard. Use Cyan (50/35 shore) front and Magenta (35 shore) rear for tracks with less traction.

Yes. You'll have to pop off the rear camber link and pull the CVD shaft from the outdrive to adjust the rear. The front is slightly difficult. You'll have to, again, pop off the camber link. Now, remove the hinge pin connecting the c-carrier to the front arm (careful not to lose the small, silver spacer on the hinge pin). Lift the c-carrier / steering knuckle / CVD assembly out of the arm and outdrive to adjust the diff.
