What should I try and target for a rollout? I'm using a stock motor and foam tires.

I have searched this thread and the search didn't seem to be very helpful. Maybe I'm just looking the wrong way.

Thanks for the help on this.

Hi, I'm looking to run this car as a sort of asphalt basher. I was wondering whether or not the pro 4 was a good choice for that. I'd raise it up as high as I can, but im not sure if the chassis design is all that good for my purpose. Am I stuck with a tube design for my purpose? I'm not abusing the car, but it isn't a race track.

Does anyone have a set up for rubbers with a oneway on asphault? There's only Thad's setup for SoCal raceway. Will that put me in the general ball park? It's definately too cold for 36R's, and we don't use traction compounds here. Why would they include a one-way if the spool is clearly used more?

Default Asphalt foam setup

Sorry it took me a while to post been veru busy. I have used this setup with foams and rubber on prepared asphalt with good success.

Hara chassis plus more
Front
one-way diff
4 degree blocks
0 toe
white springs with 40wt oil
outer hole on bottom, 2nd hole from outside on top
rear inner hole for camber link with 2mm spacer (I have the carbon fiber mounts)
black swaybar
2mm block spacers front and rear

Rear
3 degree toe
pink springs with 30wt oil
middle hole on bottom, 2nd hole from outside on top
rear inner hole for camber link with 1mm spacer (I have the carbon fiber mounts)
copper swaybar
2.5mm block spacers front and rear

5.5mm ride height front and rear
droop settings are what ever the manual recomends for initial setup

I have run this in stock and mod, stock it is planted, mod the rear is a little loose off power but I like it that way.

I would say yes.


Iíve copied Andy Moores set-ups in the past, he states HPI oils but Iíve just used AEís. Used the same oil weight and the car has been spot on.

here are pros and cons of ea camber plate

graphite: pros: cheap, the screws no longer stick up high enuf, so you dont have to do upper deck mod. lightweight cons: must use nut to hold ballstud in place (sux), only has 4 screw holes

aluminum: pros: holes are tapped so you dont have to use the nut!! has 5 holes cons: expensive, screws stick up to normal height, so you have to do upper deck mod, slightly heavier.

so i say if you have plastic get alum, and if you already have graph its prolly not worth the $$ to swtich to aluminum.

hpi springs are really good for the pro4 because the spring rates are soooooo close together, you can make what would be half or 1/3 changes compared to other manufacturers springs.

gooo hpi springs!

I agree...
but the aluminum version by Jet is relatively 1/2 the price of HPI's. and cost about the same at HPI's CF plates... Jet aluminum camber plate is about $17.00 ea... and about $20.00 shipped from HK.

Finally, it's the answer to my question that I've been waiting for. I guess, I'll go for aluminum instead of the graphite plates.

Thanks floodo1
