Hmmm. Seems like a proper title of this thread would be "HPI Pro2 Fan Club"

I was thinking of a Kr or Pl but i dunno what kind of final gear ratio i should be running at
I dont have experience with such motors. Stock class is what I'm into. But the usual rule of thumb is: Gear the motor, so the car reach top-end at 3/4 of the longest straight. For more technical tracks, go one tooth less on the pinion. For larger tracks, go one tooth up.

You wont gain any advantages by combining af middle one-way and a one-way diff. The adjustable wont be adjustable in this case, since the front one-way will over rule it.

Check this link out, it shold explain the whole story about one-ways: One-way

well, having 2 oneways make the oneway action even smoother right? since the Super one way has 4 oneway bearing sinstead of 2, it probably has more friction. ADJ middle oneway can fine tune the smoothness? is there a norm,al middle oneway for pro 2?

I've tried running dual one-ways - you cant tell the difference. There's no friction problems in the super front one-way.

You dont need the normal center one-way, just loosen the adjustable one.

I'll strongly recommend you start out with the adjustable one-way alone, since it's very easy to loosen or tigthen. This way you'll get experience in the easy way.

Hit the curb few times today...

I have to do a maintence rebuild soon though, just to make sure. However, i might just screw it and do it after the saturday's race!

I loved my Pro 2. Over the years i've had cars come and go, but i probably missed that the most and regret selling it.

But I do have an original 414... . I'm such a traitor! Good thing i dont treat women this way .

what kind of settings should i have?
I run on a small/Medium (100feet groove they say but i think it's smaller) It is carpet Trioval course.

Right now i changed to 0degree front antisquat and 8 degree caster with 2 degree upper arm mount (can't find 0 degree upper arm mount) Trying to lay down the shocks as much as i can without using the C hole. Changed to 40Wt with #3 pistons all around.

The question is, should i run yellow front and blue back or blue back and yellow front?
It feels like the yellow ius stiffer then the blue.

Also, I was thinking front purple sway bar and rear no sway bar or pink?

Please help!
thank you
