I actually have Chester from Bruckner Hobbies to check out the car. I plan on racing indoors in the Bronx at a local indoor track. Once the car is ready, I'll head out to Willis. Where I race, everyone has something other than a Cyclone, so getting help is of limited proportions.

Default front pivot ball mount

I notice that there are 1,1.5,2,2.5 purple front alum front pivot ball mounts, how do these mounts affect the car handling?

On the rear less toe in (smaller degree of the pivot block) gives you more speed while more toe outgives you better handling (i think through the corner)

On the front i think it changes how aggressive the car turns into the corner. More toe out (higher degree of pivot block) should make the car turn in more agressively.

But ive only ever played with the rear pivot block.

Default The aluminum Pro 4 outdrives

Got the aluminum Pro 4 outdrives..in a word...SICK! These puppies are made to the tee and weigh less than a gnats hair more than the carbon fiber. Not like you will need it, but there is the same space for the diff ring to go over the end of the outdrive! My Pro 4 diffs are holding true, but I will re-build one with the aluminum and let you folks know how they do.

The outdrives for the Pro 4 came out exactly like the plastic ones, down to the space on the ends for the outdrive rings. $31 dollars gets you the front and rear sets...shipped!

When I rebuild the diffs, I will snap some shots. This is the pic he sent me when they were first milled. This is exactly how I received them.

Here is the Pro5? Where the heck did you get that one from? In any event, that car is about as original as I have seen in quite awhile. Three belts like a nitro car and everything being symmetrical on the car is trick. Not to keen on the limited space for the receiver and how one has to run wire from the rear to the front for the ESC. Aside of that, if it goes into production, cant wait to see how it does.

thanks for the props. and once again, I am glad you are happy with the outdrives.
I pop in here every once in a while, so someone could pm me here also if you wanted the outdrives or just about any other custom part.

Hi sleepy23!

Do you manufacture the aluminum outdrives for Pro4? Is there any possibility of shipping it outside the US?
