To answer the question in the original post, the Pro4 Hara is the best shaft driven car right now. I have had a couple of shafties in the past, and several belted also, and this car has made me sell off my belted cars in favor of this one, Its that good. Yes, I know belts are the flavor this month, and I do actually like belted TC, but for pure throttle response, and low maintenance you just cant get that out of a belted car.

Default Pro-4

One of our guy on or Team bought a Hara Pro-4 and raced it on Sunday. I must say I was very imprest with the lap times and how well the car pulls out of the corners.


Two Thumbs up for the Pro-4 and this is coming from a Schumacher guy

thanks for the replies, i've run belt and shaft, and i think shaft is the way to go for stock and 19 so that's why i asked. Looking at what's been said, nobody has said anything bad about the Pro4, it was all pros (hehe, no funny hun?)

If someone could explain to me using more than opinion why belts are better, go ahead i guess after using them i just havn't see the light...

Default Yok LCG

The Yok LCG is an awesome car A true asphalt killer. Setting up for carpet can be a bit of work but once it's there it can stand toe to toe with the rest out there. Absolutely no torque steer, drives straight as an arrow and has all the tuning capalitites of the Yok BD. But you will have to keep in mind the car was designed to flex A whole bunch!!!! So when setting up for carpet you have to use that flex to your advantage, hug the corners and punch out full throttle What shafties are best at. POWER.....ohh...yeah...


Funny when all the FK's, Corally...take those corners planted like a rock and here comes an LCG at full throttle...almost looking like it's about to traction roll...but never does the car knows how to use that roll.

the tommy kramer edition fixes this for carpet. it's 3mm graphite top and bottom without any cutouts, and the top plate is continuous, getting rid of the twin decks of the lcg, but keeping the removable diffs.
