Didn't take long for someone to catch that!!

I also predict that the car will br produced!! There is no way a company won't produce a car that wins worlds!

In the Touring Car Masters coverage it states that the production status is unknown! Yeh right!

newracer: well you never know! Everyone figured that after Spasphett(sp?) swept the worlds using the (then prototype) LRP Quantum, that the unit would quickly hit production. It took LRP, what? Two, two and a half years after that, before they got the unit into solid production.

So winning the worlds with something, doesn't neccesarily guarantee a quick run to production.

And I notice that your not backing down from that bold prediction!

Default Question: Front Outdrives

Hello. My front One Way outdrives is kinda short and the CVD's keep on popping out of the drive cup.

I have tried placing tape all around the Drive cup to prevent the CVD's from falling out, It works but looks ugly.

I have made a spacer (3mm thick) out of plastic to put in between the drive cup and the one way to extend the drive cup more so the CVD's will be more in the middle of the drive cup than on the edge. Have not tried it yet.

Do you gfuys have any other solution to my problem??
Aside from changing the car?? I do not experience this with the rear differential.

Thanks!

Unfortuanately, it's a bit of a design fault with the pro3 - the diffs are naturally offset about a millimeter to the side - so on the front you're prone to outdrive problems.

Are your one-way outdrives actually damaged? If so you'll need to replace them.

My tip is to not run the front end with too much shock length/droop, or ride height - that will allow the driveshafts to go to extreme angles, increasing the problem.

Default Thanks!

Sosidge, thanks for the reply! Done those already and it still happens! I tried leaning the front tires inside but it ate away the tires in one race and loss of grip on the frnt.

hope the shims work. i will just grease it up to prevent binding.

Hi Guys,

I need a set-up for a small asphalt track with lots of corners, very technical.
I will use rubber tires with Pro3 HB upperdeck, graphite chassis.
I bought the new 3 and 4 degrees front blocks but didn't try them yet.

Any set-up to share ?

thanks

hi guys, i have just soldered a Panasonics 3000SMH pack for my Pro3 in 6x1 format. However, when I try to fit it in the tube chassis (graphite composite) with Square alloy batt holder bar, I can see that the batt cannot fit perfectly on the tube chassis. Do I have to do anything on the chassis before fitting the batt nicely ??

PS : the same pack can fit in my YM34 Type T perfectly.

Is the track high traction or dusty?
If high traction try:
Definately install the 3 or 4 degree front blocks. this will increase your steering and cornering speed.
Stock camber links posisitions.
Front:
30wt oil. #3 piston
63.5mm length.
inner hole on shock tower.
Navy blue pro-linear springs.
Heavy sway bars.
ride height: 4.5mm
Rear.
35wt oil. #3 piston
63.5mm length
next inner hole on shock tower.
Grey pro-linear springs
Black sway bars
ride height: 5.0mm

Tires: depends on temp. and weather.

I am also running front and center one-ways with this setup.
works great for both stock and mod.

Good luck and win some races.
