I believe that the full version of Acrobat ($$$) is the only way to create an interactive sheet successfully.

Since we race at the same Tracks, you going to share some of the Pro-3 secrets with me ?
I have the full version of Acrobat. Just havent had the chance to learn it all yet.

More than happy to share. You might have more to offer. I just use a bigger motor /

Default where do you guys race at?

church;

I am solely a Parking Lot racer at this time. We frequent Corona, La Mirada, Hobby Town Corona and some of the Hobby People races. There are alot of other good places to race, but usually end up being more than an hours drive for me (too much).

I have a full version of Adobe Acrobat but untill today have never messed with it. I figured out to make the setup sheet with boxes you can check and fill in with your setup, even with just the reader version. As soon as I get the entire form setup I'll gladly e-mail it to anybody who wants it.

Thanks in advance.

Hmmm..... Mark, you're setting up for the WORLDS huh... hmmm... hehehe, I don't have a clue on how to set up this car. I only ran it once at La Mirada and it hooked up right away, but still, I don't know what changes the car will react to... HELP!!!

I have the Adobe setup sheet complete. You can check any of the check boxes and enter all the other data and then save it. It does not have the optional shock mounts or castor blocks but it's a start. Anybody who wants it e-mail me.

I havent ran my car much as well. Just built as a matter of fact. A little more than a week to get fast quick! Just hope there arent Pro4 sightings in JP, otherwise I might have to put International FedEx to use!

After our long weekend at TA, this Vegas trip is going to be fun first.

i just decided to bring my pro3(in a box, all taken apart) back to life. are there steel diffs out yet, or are there still just the hpi and delrin crap. Also, would a carefully dremeled out plastic chassis be as good as the woven graphite.

Default dremeled out plastic chassis

pro3racer;

Without an Upper Deck, the Plastic Chassis is just way too flexible for the Pro-3 to be competitive with most other Cars.

If you're racing on a High Traction surface, a stiff Chassis is a MUST have.

Actually I'd love to have a copy but since you said that it didn't have the extra mount positions for the graphite towers nor the newer C-hubs it really wouldn't help me much. I posted a modified setup sheet that has this info included. My original file was too large to post on the forum so I had to reduce the resolution which may not be a good enough resolution for this purpose. If you would convert it and make it availiable for those interested (including myself) I'll privately email you my original JPEG file. I'm not pushing my setup sheet. I made it exclusively for my own personal use to address the optional accessories that HPI had introduced.
