Default Hot Bodies

Im sure most of you know but HPI wont be making a pro 5. They have teamed up /merged with Hot Bodies and that will be there high end line starting with the Cyclone Hara is driving right now. HPI will focus in the entry level/ RTR market after the Pro4. Hara was flying though and the current belt drive car is based on the Pro4

Good news...So the pro4 won't be replaced...looks like HPI/HB will have 2 dominating cars on the market, and both different drivetrains.

Looks nice, but I would rather change the c hub first cos they break more often than the knuckles.

I have a question for you guys. I just picked up a Pro 4 about 2 weeks ago and have heard back and forth about the rigidity of the chassis for carpet racing. I have seen from some that the BMI 3mm is the way to go but others seem just fine with the factory stock chassis. What is better for carpets.

Also, what is the shock oil weight and springs most of you are running on carpets, I seem to have too much chassis roll.

Alum C-hubs work better if the knuckle is plastic...that way if you strip the king pin you just have to replace the knuckles on each strip

Default New Pro 4 diff kit

Does anyone know the part number for the newer version of the diff kit or the part numbers for the individual pieces? The only things I need are:

New version diff bolt
New version retainer nut
Spring
Both ball sizes
D-Rings

Is the whole kit 75141 or is that the old version?
