I'm trying my 2mm chassis out tomorrow and was wondering should I go to softer springs or stiffer springs? I'm running stock, parking lot track, medium traction. I was thinking I should run a bit stiffer set up due to a bit more flex in the chassis but I'm not sure. I have tried that with a TC4 (tub chassis) and ended up going to a softer set up..

try Hara's 04 Roar Nats set-up... great starting point.

Hi people,

I recently came into the ownership of a Pro 4. It has BMI upper deck, lower deck and strut towers, TC3 axles, aluminium camber plates and possibly a few other things I don't know about.

I'll be running on carpet and initially I'll be running 4 cell stock on rubber till I get used to the car.

Are the nany recommended hop-up I shound have?

Thanks.

Sounds like you already have the ones you need, I ran a Pro4 on carpet and found it to be very capable car, Run a diff up front, A spool and one way don't seem to hold up very well on carpet.. Run the sway bars front and rear, If your running stock rubber tires don't go to a stiff set up (like you would do on foam) I would try gold springs in the rear with 50wt and #3 pistons with the 1.6 sway bar, for the front, white springs with 50wt and #3 pistons. Stick with the 4 deg. hubs (seems to give the best entry and exit steering) I ran the shocks in the #2 spot on the tower and the #2 hole on the A arms. I ran the ride height at 5mm in the front and 5.5mm in the rear. Some tracks wont let you run any lower than 5mm..It tears up the carpet if you run much lower..Good Luck

Thanks for the reply. Not sure what you meant by stock rubber tyres. I'll be runnig CS-22s. Oh and my LHS didn't have Pro 4 springs in stock but they did have losi springs that happen to be 25x13 so I bought a set of them so your colours might be off. (I'm sure I can find a spring comparison sheet somewhere on the net). As for the rest of the car it looks like it's already set up to what you recommend.

Thanks again.

22's man that's a soft tire.. Is that a control tire? By that I mean do you have to run that tire..If not I would run a CS27. I guess you would know what tire you would need for your track..But I know that for the CRC carpet I was running pit (brand name) 30's with the same set up. On the springs an HPI white spring is rated at 20.3 and the gold's are rated at 19.0. From what I have seen the Losi springs do not cross over very well..They don't seem to have the spring rates you need, Either to soft or to stiff not much in the middle. I would look at the associated or Yokomo /rayspeed.

You can use Xray springs. They fit just, as well as, Hpi springs. Why 4 cell stock? That's gotta' be really slow!

Well, I'm just getting into racing (I've bashed for about a year) and the starting class at my local track is 4 cell stock with rubber. I figure i'll start there and work my way up. At the moment it's the quiet season so a good time to learn. I probably won't race till the fall, just practice for now.
