I had a bunch of 48 pitch pinions so I switched over to the Kimbrough gears. I have run the 2 screws for quite a while now with no issues.

Hi,
A friend of mine has the same problem(415 MSX)!!!
I didn't ever faced this kind of problem when racing with my pro4.
The solution is simple,I think:
When I build my diffs I always run in them oh the track and then,I tighten till they are ok and do not slipper at my hands,not at the car!
This problem occurs when you overtighten the diff and/or don't run it in.
I hope this helps...
Jim

there's a guy on the boards that re-anodized aluminum parts

Here's the TC4 HD CVD bones re-colored to HPI Purple.
and it's a perfect match too
he also did my AH12 and cyclone.

Hi,

I found the new hpi diff bolt to be just as weak but it didnt loosen off so it does half of its job , id go for the associated bolts much stronger and dont seem to back off although i still thread lock them just incase.

Hi.
As you probably have guessed by the name i run a Losi. I dont wish to offend any of you guys but id like to know what the differences between the pro 4 and the cyclone are and in particular, why 3 of the top drivers (Hara, Moore and Surikarn) have switched o using the cyclone.
Thanks for your help guys.

no pin cushions... but you can easily replace them with the pin cushion kit.

cyclone does not come with MIP CVD's.
comes equipped with standard CV's that is found in most Japanese cars... the Tamiya TB02 42mm steel CV bones and axle fit the cyclone for better durability.

Hi Guo Chean,
saw your name on the FEMCA ISTC Drivers list.
You will be driving a PRO4?
Well I'm the only HPI/HB Drivers from Singapore that will still be driving a PRO4. All the rest have switched to Cyclone.

You have any tips for that track to share?

I think that a belt car works better in mod than a shaft car.For stock I like the Pro4 more,The Cyclones I have driven have more on power steering than any Pro4 I have driven,One BS thing with the Cyclone is the stock shocks leak..come on..$430+ and i need to replace shocks..

not only they leak but the adjust nut doesn't hold due to no O-ring.
replaced the cap and nut with Pro4's. the Pro4 cap provides a better seal.
