Thumbs up To spitfire....

Spitfire....Thank you very much for the technical information provided, It seems that is not a bad ESC to play around with. I also have a Pro2 , but right know a have a 2 speed in it. My Pro2 has a few upgrades, but here in Puerto Rico Pro2 parts have to be requested trought LHS's or ordered by internet to RC companies. I mainly run asphalt and as you can imagine the temperature here get's hot were talking about 110 or more on the road course... so if you have any setup's you might want to share.. any help is gladly appreciated. The only different thing in my Pro2 is that i have installed adjustable HPI shocks, with 40wt all around and pink HPI in front and blue in the rear spings. The car hooks up pretty good but i haven't had the car for long so i don't know a really good set-up. I've been at DR Diffs site and i'm currently using Thad's Modified setup and it works OK i guess? I race a 10t dbl and 2400 Sanyo cells with a front one way, saddle pack setup. If you have anything else that you would like to share in reference to the Pro2 it's welcomed, I just love the car and the way it drives. Thank's again from Puerto Rico, The Island of Enchatment.

Nice to see there's still Pro2 fans around. I just got the luck to get a brand new Pro2, never assembled before. My only hop ops are dual one-ways, sway bars and I've ordered the graphite diff hubs.

Well, I aint got any asphalt experience.

It seems you're well doing. One thing I would suggets you try out, are the sway bars. They make the car more predictable. Also, I find using the droop screw to adjust downtrave, can make a big handling difference. Also the camberlinks position can come in very handy.

At my opinion, this site is one of the best about setup the car: http://home.tiscali.be/be067749/58/
