move the shocks up as far as possible, if this isn't possible get harder tyres....but the best thing is to invest in a full set of associated springs

if you do the shock collar thing you will have no droop, effectively making that end "stiffer" ie no weight shift....but in a bad way.

The Springs that he uses are made by HYBRID(AKA Mirage) but they are the same spring rates as A.E.`s

AE is Associated Electronics, or just Associated. If you go here you can get the HPI spring chart with all the spring rates in pounds per inch and also in grams force per millimeter. This will help you see where the Trinity and Associated springs fall in comparison to the HPI line.

The last I heard, Hara just paints his springs white so no one can see what he's running, and that's just what he likes. I could be wrong though.

No, cranking down on the preload collars does nothing but raise your rideheight. try changing your shock oil weight or the piston hole size (to a smaller diameter). Or, just go and buy an AE Spring kit...

what are the mods required to fit yokomo outdrives into the pro 4....i have a pair of them...so far i can see that i need to enlarge the dirveshaft slots and need yokomo rings.

another question are yokomo rings the same as asociated ones? like will the round associated rings fit in the flat spotted yokomo drives?

thanks

Hi Guys,

I know some of you have been asking about suspension parts (mainly the suspension arms) we got a limited number of them in stock along with some hub carriers and steering blocks.

I've ordered some alloy steering knuckles and C-hubs from AsiaTees purely for durability purposes. They are Jet ones so hopefully they will hold up well as they look much stronger than the Square ones.

I'll let everyone know if I have any problems.
