Tobee Craft sells a complete set for the Pro3.
30900 Aluminium screws set $32 only available from Asia.

Why do you want to use aluminum screws?... if it breaks it's hard to remove. Try going with Titanium. just as light and 10 time stronger. They are available at Integy or HPI has a full set for the car.

Default Good carpet set up....works for me!

I've been dialing my car in the past few weeks and have cleared up alot of problems.....I'm just posting my exact setup in hopes that someone might benefit from some of it. I've been consistent in the A-main lately, and my lap times have decreased quite a bit........its a short twisty carpet layout with a good amount of traction.....heres my setup:

First off, the car:
Protoform BMW M3 coupe
HB Upper deck
penguin chassis
Front and mid one way
Purple foams all around

Front:
Shock positions as per kit settings
Camber links @ shock tower on lowest, inner position
Camber links @ hub carrier on highest position
2 degrees neg. camber
1 degree toe out
Losi black springs
50 wt. oil
4mm ride height
Gold sway bar
Castor as per kit

Rear:
Shock positions as per kit
Camber links @ shock tower on upper inner position
Camber links @ hub carrier on middle position
2 degrees neg. camber
losi Purple springs
50 wt. oil
4mm ride height
No sway bar
Castor as per kit

The car just seems really well balanced and does just what I want it to.....I guess thats what we all want right?

use 7-cells are you going to pass by my house later to get the pro3? i took off the aluminum antenna holder and threaded shocks. thanks for the parts. i'll return them to you when you're gonna use the pro3 again, ok?

thanks for the info on the screws guys. the reason i was going for aluminum is because of the price of titanium screws.

That full length upper deck was shown at the Chicago Hobby show last year by HPI. No word yet if it's going to be released. It's probably too late for HPI to release it. I bet majority of Pro3 owners already have the HB upper deck.

Not really a fair evaluation of the cars ability, nobody else was there.
