great news fatboy383! where are you located at?

Didn't have any time to start work on my SB Pro yet but no real rush at this time.

I probably will put together my STR4- Pro after I get back this weekend from visiting the in-laws.

great to hear, glad to see your LHS step up.

One thing I am going to try that I picked up from re-inferno is the bigger diff screw mod. He describes how to do it on www.rc10b4.com . Fairly simple, just using two different parts.

Here is where I am going to order from:

www.rc-champ.co.jp

I have gotten word of sucessful orders by others and you will probably want to run the page through a translator. So far they have responded very fast to my questions.

Here are some of the prices they quoted me:

KSB-03 Motor mount 2520yen
SP-P17 Carbon upper deck 3192yen

The upper deck I am assuming goes from one end of the chassis to the other.

Thanks Cain. I can't wait to run my Pro. Any body find a cure for the soft diff rings yet?

have fun with it.

Have to find someone who makes harder ones. I wonder if Kose does?

To be honest, even though the rings could be harder, the vehicle performed great for me.

I raced my new SB pro for 1st time last Sunday! VEry pleased! Got a late start (had to change a tire on my mini-van before loading up. Plus fight my way thru a blizzard w/white-out conditions). Missed first round.. Had car working pretty good for main. Felt every bit as competetive as my Losi. Gave it a pretty good durabillity test! Lot's of 'thrashing about during early going.
Reduced anti-squat & made some shock changes, hooked-up pretty good for main.
Right on about the diff-rings! I noticed pretty deep groove after only 3 runs! Diffs feel pretty good after re-adjustment, but will try to find alternatives that fit! By the way, I got a kimbough 72t spur to work just fine! Reemed the inside to fit directly on the hub (minus bushing) and used peel and stick slipper pads for Savage. Went together beautifully and don't anticipate any problem. Gives greater choice for gearing. Don't know how you can run low turn mods with spurs provided (without toasting them).
I own a hobby shop in NW Indiana & stock parts and kits from MRC. Just started with them and don't have too much yet, but will build it up.

duneland: Can you post pictures of your slipper setup using the kimbraugh gears, if you have a picture by picture of the breakdown on doing this, that would be great! I would love to run spurs larger than the stock 70.

I did not bring my dig cam to the store today. Will try to remember it tomorrow. I think a 75t will fit! I will shoot the whole process. If it fits OK, then we should have no problem gearing for any motor!

For the SB, I have worked out that a 72, 73 and a 74 tooth spur will be all you need for the bugy, and that wull give you a full gear ratio scope too, with a set of pinions.

This can definitely help those of us with gearing issues. And on the SB Pro, owners have noticed that you can't mesh up anything below say a 19 tooth pinion. With the SB Sport mount, I could do a 17 tooth pinion.

anyone have a good set up for the pro- it doesn't give any ideas in the kit. Pistons and oil? any spacers in the shocks?
