(2) The different is.....nothing is better then the OEM products, for HPI cars, better use HPI Spring, they will give the perfect match, however, cheap ppl like me, having a full set of AE springs for NTC3 already, and I don't really care much about electric since I am never be very good in electric anyway, so AE springs does work for me......just a little confusion when I am following HPI setup sheets by HARA or Moore, when they refer to HPI springs, I can to do the conversion and find the nearest set of spring from AE to match it....
Overall, it is the question about do you want to spend then extra $40 for a full set of HPI springs just for the PRO4.....? I believe the spring rate of AE is a little bit off from the HPI....

I am considering to use ball diff since it is easier to use. But if i drive with the one-way more i'll probably end being faster. $40 extra for HPI springs?! How much is a set?! The stock spring setup is already good for me though. My main concern is which hop-up will make the car have a more efficient drivetrian. I i really want to experiment with the ball diff, I found my cousin's tc4 really easy to drive i think this was due to him having a ball diff, even though they are different cars i could automatically tell his front diff made the most noticeable difference.

one-way is uauly the best buy bereally to buy lots of extra parts, if your not worred about speed and not wanan break gears all the time then the normal ball diff is the way to go

I find that interesting because I used to own an IRS tc3 with the ball diff in the front and hated the feel of it. I thought it was much harder to drive with the ball diff in. I since bought the Pro 4 with the one way and love the feel of it. I will never go back to a ball diff in my front end unless I had to. The only thing I am considering trying is a spool. My opinion.

If you want some of the effects of the spool while not grinding any gears or bending cvd's, try the diff using losi brown grease and run the diff screw very tight. Pulls out of the turn similar to a spool but no worries about gears or cvd's.

Default New Shocks

Does anyone know when the new shocks and motor mount will be available for seperately in the US? Would the new shocks be comparable/better than Tamiya shocks?

they're both relatively equal in performance... but the 05' has more option parts than the Hara... the 05 will cost more and does not come with the MIP CVD's. the Hara is only $375 w/discount at Tower. and all you basically need is the front one-piece bevel gear input shaft.($16.00)
I bought the Hara Last week...well worth the investment.

probably in a couple of months if we are lucky.
the new shocks should be equal or better than the Tamiya or even the Yok shocks.

Any idea on how much the motor mount will cost? I'm trying to decide on wether to upgrade one of my Pro 4's or sell them both to get a Hara.

Default Overall

It would probably cost about 150 with shipping to convert the car then? Also, how did the Yokomo BD handle in comparison to your '05 pro 4?

thanks for the info again.
I wonder why the Hara edition dosen't come with the one-piece bevel gear inbut shaft.....is that better than the Hara edition's bevel gear??
I've heard that the bevel gear which comes with the Hara edition is lighter than the one-piece bevel gear, but the one-piece bevel gear is more durable??

can you please tell me the parts number of the one-piece bevel gear
and where I can get it??

thanks
