Mossie, one tip when building the Pro 4. Prethread the screw holes before you actually build the car. And use the lube they suggest or pick up some Losi White Lube. It will make threading the screws much easier.

Just wondering how the original ball cups are wearing??

Any feedback would be good as i've only raced mine car once so far, thinking about getting the RPM ball cups.

Word was it should be shipping this week. HPI has the Manual posted on their web site, I take it that's a good thing.

Aren't all the screw holes going to be different on the US kits because the Japan kits were too tight?

This guy needs this car. He has tried everywhere to get one. Some reason Teach keeps getting the run around. Came on and sell him a car.

I would'nt think so, aussie kits come from the same batch and they are still a tight fit

I just used a variable speed screw driver...went in with no problem. Just make sure the threads are greased.

The original ball cups are different from other HPI kit...so don't know how they will hold up... I'll keep my on til they develope slop and switch to the RPM's that I have ready to install...

Here's a tip..

Before you install the ball cups drill a whole on top..3/32" or 2mm
This way you will have access to the 2mm hex on the ball stud making it easier to remove and adjust the camber links without having to remove the ball cups all together.... this will prevent the ball cups from stretching and deforming after repeated removal.

Hi, can anyone help what kinds of spring would you prefer for the Pro4, if I'm running stock.

Thanks.
