No,...the plastic block at the very rear of chassis, with the numbers raised on it...(2-2-9)

If it does increase the anti-squat... be sure that the pins/arms still pivot freely...if the angle of the hinge-pin gets too extreme relative to the holes in the blocks, will cause binding....

BLAZN420: yup, that i have to agree. i think HPI should get more rated drivers around the world to push their products globally.

Default WTB Pro 3

Just wondering if any of you have a hopped up Pro 3 for sale. I am only interested in a car that has the narrow carbon fiber chassis. Other hop ups are welcome as well. Just really interested in a car with that chassis (from Kai, Penguin, etc...)

Shoot me an e-mail if you have one..

i think you are putting a space in there where it should be an underscore man. an under score is one of these "_" just thought i would let you know.

i cant wait to get my pro 3 up to roseville rc-zombies. i am going up there not this coming up weekend, but the weekend after that to buy a house. i dont know if i will get to the track though.

i got a question about cutting the diffs...what exactly do i cut and stuff? i want to do that real bad. my next mod is the KAi chassis, or that immitator of it. i cant wait! well lmk if you guys know how to do this.


thanks

Misfitslvr - I'm not sure what you mean by cutting the "diffs".

Do you mean cutting the diff covers, to shed a little weight? If so, I'd take a look at some pics of Hara's car, and see what he's removed (normally largish holes in the front and rear of the covers, and over the belt channels).

yeah well i went home and cut the diff covers last night and it doesnt really seem different to me, but it looks cooler. i just cut the whole middle section out of the front diff cover. i just left the sides so i could attach the shock tower on to it.

rc-zombies... where did you get all that blue aluminum stuff? your car is awsome. i think i saw it on hpi's sight. lmk i want mine to look like that!

later guys

MiSFitSLvR: Yes all the blue parts are from Nobrands. Another HPI division. only available in Japan. It cost me over $200.00 just for the option parts alone. hhttp://www.hpiracing.co.jp/nobrands/index.htmlere's there web site:
After awhile I realized that there was a cheaper way to do the blue. Just get all the purple and get them re-colored from an anodizer co. I found one about 30min. from Oakland that can re-color the rest of my purple parts to blue. or any color you wish. and it only cost me about $65.00 to do the whole car. Can't wait next week to pick up the rest of the Pro3 option parts in blue.

Good luck in you house purchase up in the Roseville. Lots of new housing developement up there.

spaz456: don't forget the undscore '_' after rc it should be:

Happy Easter everyone.
