Second that! 3 of us are using them at my local club with no issues. The hpi pro 4 drive shaft is another good option.

Just a suggestion.

Steven
i would look at how your car loads up on the suspension before adjusting the camber link shorterning the camber link will make the car initaly agressive but you will find going though the corner and exit it tend to push. and feel unsetled when getting back on the throttle.

looking at your setup i would start by standing your shocks up a hole on the tower this will make the front of the car react faster and change direction faster you may find that the car is a little to twitchy you colud then drop the oil weight by 5wt to smooth the transition out.

steve where do you race.

Agno, do you have another part number aside from "HPI 88914"? Even the HPI site doesn't recognize that number.

Thanks in advance.

I have a couple of questions, I have searched through the thread with no clear answers to them.

Why use a gear diff in place of a ball diff in the rear? Plusses/minuses

Why use a Gear diff in the front in place of a solid axle?

I ordered two of the new gear diffs to try out. I live in South Florida and mainly race outside on a pretty smooth surface. Can anyone tell me how the gear diffs will benefit me?

Thanks in advance.

That's the part number on the ones I got (from rcmarket, I might add)... Search rcmarket for that part number and you'll find it there, that's what I did when I ordered mine

HPI USA site doesn't carry the Pro-D - you need to look at HPI japan to see the actual part on the site

I got the Pro-d 46mm steel shafts the other day (3 packs.....I was pretty shocked I fuond so many).

They actually are just slightly to tight for the V3 outdrives. Ive run a file around the teeth of the outdrive to allow them a snug fit but able to move free in and out the teeth. Seems now I have a front end that will be bog standard in the sense of HPI parts, but pretty tough to crack.

Also managed to finally get some wishbones, been running pro4 one's for ages now.

Happy chappy I am

Andy did an awesome job at TITC, definatly a very friendly guy too, on and outside the track too His car was insane, so much steering and grip, when i first saw him drive it on the practice day I knew it was going to be right up there. Hara and Andy ran very different setups, so it shows that there is more than one way to get the car to go fast. I was pretty happy with my car making the Mod B main in my first international event It was just funny how much the track can change hour to hour, first you have traction roll, then understeer. All a learning experience though

Just be careful of the spec-r low friction rear belt - it doesn't fit the TCX... It's a 63t belt instead of a 64t belt - the 63t will probably fit my TC, but not my TCX... I think they were advertised as 64t or erg-mart/spec-r's site - so I was a little bummed/annoyed, but oh well at least I can use it

So buyer beware that's not aimed at you, stitchy - just figured I'd put it out there in general
