speaking of it anyone knows an approx. release date?
yes the HPI CF chassis is thicker than the HB..but about the same price. HPI about $5 usd cheaper.

my sources say only a few months away.... but it's not what it's cracked up to be....Wait for the Hara edition to be released!

for the people who has the Pro 3 Hara edition. can someone tell me the shock length? the oil number that was supplied? and if any sway bars were used in the factory setup of the car.

standard length is 64.5mm, but i believe that the Hara ed. came with shorter springs.

would like to prep my Hara replica to the same factory specs so i can get a basic setup.

any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Default This weekend is the test

Guys;

Just wanted to let you know that this weekend I will test the Graphite suspension Arms and see if they help with the on power steering. I'm also going to raise the rear roll center as I feel that this was a good recommendation too. (Thanks Sosidge AND JDM)

Thanks,

hey popsracer, i haev read your previous solutions to setup queries.. they are sweet took me from strugglin to find the a mians.. to being one of the fastest in my class.
I have tried these torque rods, and hte stiffer arms..

the arms do cure quite a bit of the mid corner push, (however my car is somewhat beyond the spec of yours.. lol its almost hara style) .

I have tried the torgue rods.. (or caster braces... as dad calls em)
and they improved initial turn in response, and mid, but made a bit more push on exit. To find a balance that was faster i ended up tightenin front diff.. ie.. so it was a spool.. not a diff. and added rear sway bar, to medium. keep in mind i also run on fairly slippery surface.. but this was an easy to drive setup.
