I've always been told if you have nothing nice to say then don't say anything at all... that said, see my comment on that chassis below:

Ok, I am waiting very very paitiently for a release date! It is becoming very difficult not to buy another TC. You guys have to have a ballpark time frame, don't you?

Come on shed some light on this, I am definetly wanting to try this car and was hoping to have one in time for the birds, but at last I guess I will run my XRAY.

Thanks, Sort of

Thumbs up How to cook gears!

I got part but no car!

Well I desided to build the extra diff I have,

You don't need to boil them just need to give them a hot bath.

Also Leave then in the water untill it cools to room temperature, you don't wan't an extreme tenperature change because they could warp.

It's Old school stuff.

Think of it like the old center post on a Pro 2. Try it, check your laptimes. Remove it and check your laptimes. It would be a very slight feeling difference also, but very slight. I would recommend using a button head screw and not countersinking this hole in the upper deck also.

Although most will say stiffer is better, we usually let laptimes decide.

Thanks for the tip...I'll try it with and without...
yea I remember the Pro2...that was a great car..built like a tank! If HPI ever goes back to belt...they should refine the Pro2.

What does boiling or heating up the gears do for your car? Do you do the same with the beval gears?

it's for the Bevel gears...boiling them adds moister back into the gears so that they are not so brittle. Makes them more durable. I also soak mine in some Paragon Ultralon for lubrication.

Did you notice after boiling them that the spacer that goes inside the gear fit's much tighter.

Default Pro 4 on carpet and foams

Hey Erik or Thad... The website says you've done extensive carpet testing with the Pro 4. Any chance of either of you telling what springs you've found work with foam tires on carpet? I plan to race the car in the Snowbird Nationals and I could use the starting point.
