To adjust the diffs, do like above by popping the ball end then use the cheap "L" allen key from the kit to adjust the front is the same, if you use this allen key instead, you don't have to remove the hinge pin.

You can find titanium dogbones on www.rc-mushroom.com in the car hopup section from Square. They're spendy though! $42!

No. He's referring to the Pro 4 bones made by TIR (Titanium Racing). Here ya' go:http://www.racing-cars.com/usa/main.asp
Look under "manufacturer" for TIR Titanium Racing.

Sorry about that...I read it too fast. Didn't see the "TIR" part. Well, there's an alternative.

No biggie. Just clarifying.

Default Does the Pro 4 have tweeking issues?

I seem to read this all the time. I don't hit the walls as much anymore so should it be a problem for me?

Recently picked up a Pro 4. I need a general setup for asphalt track on rubber tires (cs-27s). I am using a diff in the front. Also have the 2.5mm top deck on the car(to help with tweak).

I have all the toe plates, anti-squat plates and spring so hopefully I can do whatever setup is recommended.

Can someone point me to a good one?

thanks.

I have run the kit setup with really good results. But, if you want to try some different things try some of the setup on HPI's site.

They are molded from a plastic that includes molybdemum (sp?), which helps lubricate the ball joint/cup contact surfaces, like molybdenum grease would.

If the track is smooth, stick to around 5-5.5mm RH, 3-3.5 droop, I had AE red/front, blue/rear springs, 1.5 front block, 2.5 rear block.Your standard camber setting. Keep an eye on the droop grubs. If who-ever built the kit was sloppy with a tap the grubs may be loose. NOT GOOD.
