Thanks needed that info.

I fixed by the way. I shimmed the diffs on the wrong side which pushed the ring gear away from the bevel gear. I'm such a moron. Thanks for every bodies help.

Thanks for the info really needed that.

I finally fixed the problem. It turns out that I shimmed the diffs on the wrong side which in turn pushed the ring gear away from the bevel and that caused the clicking.

I'M A MORON!!!!!!!!!! Thanks for everybodies help.

as for shimming i'd consider it unlikely that the directions have the proper shims for your car speficically. that is to say that you should manually shim the car.

start with the diff (or oneway or spool) with no shims, then add shims to one side until the bearings dont move (the diff will still have a LITTLE movement due to the inner race moving), but still spins freely. this will give you the total shims needed.

then start adjusting where those shims are to get the mesh correct. i've had good luck setting mine with as little play as possible, but no binding.

even though the copper shims are thin, they can still make a big change, so take your time!

Default Pro 4 CVD BONES

Any recommendations to replacement CVD BONEs in the Pro 4 and where to get them? The purple aluminum ones which comes in the kit are so soft that I bent one first time on the track.

also if you can, get a 2mm chassis it will help you get a bit more grip and then you can just coppy Hara's 2004 on road nats setup and fiddle with it from there. that is what i did

Most people use TC3/4 bones. I have TC3 aluminum up front and composites in the rear.

I went and purchased the IRS big dawgs for the tc3. Seems to be a lot beefier than the stock aluminum cvd bones.

I never have ever liked HPI's CVDs. Even if you don't bend them, you're garunteed to twist them. Is there really any way to avoid it, or do I need to keep stocking up on the TC3/4 bones?
