First I want to thank Shane for such a great site. Where would we all be posting without RCTECH!?
This is the official forum for Team PRP products. It's been a long time coming but I'm happy to finally have it started!!!
MY first product announcment is for HPI's Pro 4 sedan. We are working on an aluminum backing plate for the front one-way differential. This plate braces the diff gear from stressing and flexing. This flexing has been causing the 16t bevel gear to break a little too easily. The plate is currently being race tested by Troy at Trackside and has so far showed very promising results. So if you race with him be sure to give him a good heck to see how his gears hold up!
More info will be posted as soon as possible. The backing plate is CNC machined from high grade T6 aluminum and will be purple anodized. Picture shows prototype:
We are also working on a carpet racing chassis for the Pro 4. We have some new features incorporated on the chassis and we will be race testing our prototype very soon. I have been working on this chassis since I first raced my Pro 4 at Trackside in February. The chassis and upper deck are both CNC machined from 3mm thick high grade quasi carbon. Pricing and release date are not yet set. Image shows prototype:
Pricing and release date information will be posted soon. We will begin taking orders for the One Way Plate as soon as we are completely happy with the testing and it has met our requirements.
