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.
Thanks for the tip Zombies!

also, would like to add, you can screw them in the camber links as you would find in a Evo III SE.

would the holes in the graphite wear over time when your losening and tightening screws?

yes...eventually over time the whole will start to loosen.. just put some CA in there and it will be tight again...

No it was an AE coper spring. If you go back a few pages you will find a post with Haras cleveland set up and he used congo purple and blues (the blues are had to find but you can use the AE coper)

I already have the X-ray springs sets they have a good range and they seem to fit well on the HPI shock so I will tune with those.

Hello,

An Urgent question to all pro4 owners.
Im currently doing part 6 which concerns bag B. It refers to part 73081 but this part is not listed in the front part of the instruction booklet. What dag is this part in? Is it in the Kit? Is it plastic or silver or purple

Please thanks for your help!

Mossie,

Look in the back of your instruction manual and look up 73081 in the part list and you find its called a Steering Plate (woven graphite) hope this helps.

Was the piece located in the B Bag or in a seperate bag? I think I may be missing the piece.

Default steering plate

the steering plate is in the same bag as the 2 shock towers are, which is in the chassis plate/sticker bag.

I agree with RC-Zombies, the stock springs would be great for stock, probably a little soft for mod when the traction is good.

Mossie,

I think you should slow down and go through the instructions some more. sounds like your in too much of a hurry to get it built.

Hurry......build wrong and goes like crap.

Slow.......build right and goes awesome.
