Aku-Man, too bad im low on cash right now. If anyone has a PRP upper deck for sale, let me know.
Only $20, worth to spend. BTW, I'm using Jet upper deck. It is about $14. I want to try out PRP for stiffness. I might sell my Jet after I get PRP.

Try to contact CONTROLCENTER in this forum.
They have the JET version that is the same as the SQUARE one
I am wondering if JET does made this part for Square.

Default I'm just afraid that the belt might snap.

Guys;

If your fingers are thin (mine are fat), you can get pull the clip easier by hand. For me a pair of Needle Nose is quicker.

All you have to do is lift the pack, slide it left and out through the left side. Slides right through the Belt with no problem.

If you've soldered Wires to your Pack(s), then they will catch on the Belt as you remove it. This is one reason I went to the small Euro connectors (Eagle Brand), Looks cleaner too.

Thanks Everyone for helping me!!!

Just came back from the track from practicing.

Wow am I impressed. These Pro 3's can take a beating! Only thing that happened was that my rear right CVD popped out.

Since the onroad track practices with both Nitro and Electric, a RC10GT came full throttle down the straightaway and T boned me! Nothing happened except the body got bent in and my ESC went loose.

Default carbon fiber chassis

Anybody try out HPI Woven chassis? How was it compare to HB Hara chassis? The thickness for HPI is 3.3mm and HB is 2.2mm. Which one is better?

I've had both chassis... and couldn't tell the difference.. they both handled extremely well... the HB 2.2 chassis will probably do good for outdoor parking lot races... and the thicker HPI 3.3mm chassis for High traction asphalt or carpet tracks.

Default How Free is your Drivetrain?

Guys;

I've got my Car handling just about perfect, but can't seen to find the overall speed like the shaft drive Cars. My Motor and Batteries are top notch, so I feel that the drive train is the weak link.
Seems like even with all of the free-up tricks, I can only get a few revolutions of the whole drive train when spinning the spur gear (no motor). I've seen plenty shaft drive Cars spin for several seconds.

I must be missing something, but just can't find the problem.

Anyone have some suggestions to add?

Thanks,
