Hi TRiN,

Thanks for your comment, you have got the same feeling as myself, i've checked very quickly yesterday evening before to post the pics and didn't find any issue but i'll check again tonight with more accuracy.

Some pics of mine







In some of the pics, I had my GPS strapped on which I normally use for cycling for some speed runs. In one of the pics you can just make out the readout of 74.1kmph...on thick lush grass

Very nice TRiN

Do you wax your tires ? Your Vorza looks like brand new, you maintain it very well, congrats

Which GPS are you using ?

I've checked, camber is similar on left and right, better view:

Default Front Suspension Block Question

I kept dislodging my front suspension pins and finally realized I had no 14mm cap head screws that screw the block (67384) into the differential case. Did they fall out or were they never there?? Also, I see 2 pre-drilled holes under the chassis that are directly under pre-threaded holes in the front steering block. Nothing in the schematic shows any screws there, but it would seem to me that there needs to be for more stability. I placed a screw in each hole for added strength. Any thoughts??

Rick from Boston

PS What is the purpose of screws #100558, tiny things that screw into the front block? They don't appear to hold anything.

Hi rickgi,

You should have this 3.5x14mm screws (94675) to hold the block 67384.

I don't see any pre-drilled holes under the chassis on the side of the steering block on my Vorza, only two holes for the battery case (they are located under my Delrin skid)

100558 make suspension shaft captives.

Thanks Peloche. I have one of the newer (orange-colored) Vorzas, and there are definitely 2 pre-drilled holes under the steering block.
BTW, what is a suspension shaft captive?

You're welcome, i've got also the orange one.

Suspension shaft captive means that your suspension pins http://www.hpieurope.com/piw.php?lang=en&partNo=67415 can't come out.

Pelochi, you're talking about the small screws connecting to the front hinge pin plate. The SAME screw is also (according to the schematic) used for the steering block, for what purpose I don't know.

Tyres were just mounted at the time. It doesn't quite look like that anymore I always try to remember and take some pictures before it gets driven like it's stolen...

It's quite good that the wing and front shock tower protector takes the majority of the impacts leaving the body untouched, so if I were to do a complete tear-down and rebuild, I think I would be able to get it almost looking like the pics again.

GPS I use is a Garmin Edge 500...

Looking good Trin! But yours is too clean as well! . I love the wheels! My big blocks just showed up tonight and although I wanted to keep the stock wheels I couldn't pass up the price for the pre-mounted black dishes with the big blocks.

Extra rear strut tower and CV boots showed up as well so I'll be installing those tomorrow. I'll try to throw up some pics of my machine. I was hoping to keep the front strut tower pads when I doubled mine up but no good way to do it short of gluing it on and that wouldn't last 10min!

Son and I found an Awsome bashing spot in the field this afternoon. 20' hill with terraces and a creek bed at the bottom!

Hi Rick,

Yes both sides of suspension pins (67415) are equipped with this screws (100558) for the same reason.



For holes :
