I think HB also make a 1 degree toe-in hub carrier - which I have. Combined with the 2 degree kit arm mount you get 3 degrees total.

It makes the car noticeably more stable, but takes away a little steering - ideal on more open, slippy tracks.

You mentioned in an earlier post about 3 degrees Rear Toe-in. Where can I find the parts to do this. I think on a very slippery track, the infield grip might make the slight loss of top speed worth it.

Thanks for the congrats, Steven
Hotbodies makes a 3deg rear toe-in blocks along with 2.5 and 2.0. These new version toe-blocks have the adjustable roll height settings. These are only available in Japan and can be ordered from Rainbowten. Part No. are on the Japan HPI website.
I have the 2.5...and the rearend is planted to the ground..corners alot faster.

good luck..

yupp... I agree with rc-z... I replace mine to 2.5degree block and use 0 degree hub carrier....total 2.5degree... and set the skid angle to 2degree ( front & rear)... it makes the car more planted to ground but reduce my steering.... I only use front sway bar-hard.

yesterday, I tried the new addition front brace and it works fine... steeringg feels more responsive and very consistent in the straight... the "o" ring under the ball cup really helps....

I hate to see a car die like this. The P-3 was gentle warrior that just needed a push. Maybe the next-to-be will settle our needs. I still have the ride and will still race it in the stock classes locally. Is anyone still making the A-mains with the Pro 3?

None of the new cars are really gonna put the Pro 3 to shame. Everyone is still using the same motors and same tires. All these new cars are new and exciting, but they dont really put any of the existing cars to shame.

Didnt Hara win a race with the Pro3 a month or so ago too?
