Seems the track has high bite so I might run a one way instead with those sweeping turns it would be ballisitic. Biggest track here around 100 ft to 150 ft long.

Hi guys,

Here are some pictures of my Pro 4 after 3 runs on parking asphalt. Despite the (obvious) dust and the cold (4 c) the grip and the handling were good.

Now I have some cleaning work to do

Cheers.

a high powered compressor would clean the car in seconds...

also helpful to carry a compressed air in a can to the track...if a air compressor is not available...

Thanks for the piece of advice. I'll think about that seriously.

Cheers.

Anyone interested in buying a nice Pro 4 with the BMI Chassis conversion? Let me know before I list it in the for sale forum.

Hey Chris
Why dont you take a look at www.coolcanfan.com not only will the CCF's help to keep the motor so you don't have to use that so called blue heat sink, as you are covering up the motors vent holes and defeating the object of cooling your motor, but the CCF's will also help blow the dust away at the same time

Chris Chavez,

The brand is "Eagle Racing". Unfortunately, I don't know where it comes from. A friend of mine bought it in Japan one year ago. Sorry.

The hint sink motor is a very common one. I think you can find the same model in almost every specialized rc shop.

Cheers.
