Guys,there is no need to use TC3 or TC4's or any other CVDs on your Pro4s.
Just use the hard steel cvds that HPI offers for this car.
I use them at the front of it and they still are perfect,after 4 races...

The steel CV's from HPI are not MIP compatible.

cvd's are in fact different than universals. the steel parts you are referring to are universals.

in order for anyone in the US to use the steel universal bone that you mention they must also buy axles, as the cvd axles that they have will not work.

also from what i hear the universals get slightly hotter which causes the grease to evaporate faster than with cvd's. i cant verify that this is true as i have no universals of my own

Does using an aluminum center post stiffen up the chassis? On asphalt do some people not use it at all?

I've always loved the Pro4, which is why I'll probably go with the Cyclone to replace it. And you guys have helped me more than I've helped you
