I use the ride stratus 2.
A very stable body,great at speed, have to retune slightly to acheive good mid corner speed as it seems to lose traction coming out of corners.
Probably just my setup

yes...that is used...not regular spacers..
cone washer or countersink washer is used.
the o-ring inside the washer keeps enough tension to the screw does
not become loose.

Default Narrowed upper plate

The sources of 2.25mm upper decks seem to have dried up. My Hara edition drives so much better than the my base Pro 4, that I am considering using a carbide bit and routing the 2mm stock deck to a close approximation of the Hara upper shape. Has anyone tried this? Any results?

I gave my son the Hara edition to race with and now I have to make other work for myself.

have you tried rainbowten for the 2.25mm upperdeck?

rcmodel in HK has it instock...
http://shopping.rcmodel.com.hk/

routing the original 2mm upperdeck will add alot of lateral flex...and lessen the front / rear flex.

Yes, we race asphalt so the idea is to get more lateral flex. I prefer to only shop the US internet sources. So, with that limitation, I'm coming up dry on the 2.25mm plate.

I can compensate for the difference in material thickness to come up with the same cross sectional area which should give me approximately the same lateral flex. I'm not as worried about front to back, as I can always insert a stand-off. Has anyone tried this approach?

My diffs, both front and rear kept loosening so I bought the associated diff nut like what has been recommended. My question is do you put the nylon side in the outdrive first or the side the metal nut is on? Also do I use the associated screw or the HPI screw?

Thanks

Hi Rc Zombies, how are you finding the Hara Edition Pro 4 ? I have only just run my pro 4 for 2 x race meets now on carpet indoors.It is only the original kit, not even the v 1.1, but i was surprised how competitive it was. I hear the newer kits have a different setup to my original kit. What is your take on this ? I am looking at purchasing the Hara kit to run outdoors on bitumen tracks only, & keep the " old girl " for carpet
