I believe I'll race my Pro2 for a long time yet. But the T1 seems like a natural step from the Pro2.

Unfortunately, no. But there's nothing special about it, my only hop ops are graphite outdrives and a one-way diff (which aint installed for the moment). And a mini bumper.

I have a mini bumper too on mine because the big one is messed up. (it is bent down and causes drag against the running surface)

Anyways, does this smaller bumper make the foam bumper work more effeicently? (I also use a broken / fixed graphite upper bumper brace thing)

What foam bumper do you reccomend?

I'm using the foam from a flight case - it's not pretty, but it seems to last forever.

Last night race was great!
!st Q - 2nd
2nd Q - 2nd
3rd Q - 1st
Main - 2nd

my new 50 dollor tires aredestroyed except for one of the rear one where i still kept the nerf wing.

You guys know if HPI's foam bumpers are the nice real smooth kind or just rough foam?

Thanks!

I think HPI foam bumpers are nice and smooth. But the foam used in flight cases are way more durable.

Last race, I qualified as 8'th. This was among the toughest drivers from nine clubs around here, against which I usually qualify as 25-35 - my new setup rocks ! Unfortunately, there were some trouble at my home, so I had to leave the race, after the qualifiers But next race

What foam bumper do you reccomend?
I am also familiar with the "Small" plastic front Bumpers. I used them on all of my HPI RS4's. They allow the Foam to absorb an impact, instead of Chassis.

Don't have the part# but it is an older part for the original RS4 and is still availible.

A RD Logic Foam Bumber for a TC3 will fit with just a slight modification. It fills out the gap that you normally have between the bumper and the body.

i am guessing you are talking about
http://www.rdlogics.com/store/P_73.htm

do you have to drill? or?

What i don't like about the small plastic bumper is that it does not protect the front tires. (Important if you run soft soft foams)
But then again, the front wheels don't get protected even with the large bumper when your wheels are turned.

What do you guys think about the rally plastic bumper? (It came in the pro 2 innerbody kit i got yesterday)
Can you use foam Bumpers with them?
It has the 0degree anti dive arm mount built in.

Sad to say, but I dont know it. I've no problems with my bumper at all. Hmmm. I'll see if I can get a picture of my bumper (aint got a digi cam, but there's other ways...)
