marvi - I haven't had a problem with the latest generation arms - they're the one's that a blanked off on the inner half.

64dp/48dp offers such a tiny performance difference that you'd need to be Hirosaka to notice it. 64 gives a wider range of gearing options, 48 is easier to mesh and stronger - i use 48.

Dongskie - when you say kingpins, do you mean the screws that hold the uprights on, or the outer front suspension shafts?

I haven't had a problem with the screws - the shaft problem can be solved by filing a flat at the point that the grub screw makes contact, and using a little threadlock on the grub screw.

the chassis is much like the kai chassis and for the diff
that has been out for sometime but made by OVA
you can get the chassis from www.rcmodel.com.hk/
the ova diff is pretty hard to get! you must know some one
to get it.

Anybody know where to get the set-up that was used at the LRP masters for the pro3 that was in the a-main? I would like to get an optimal set-up for the Reedy race. Anybody else going with their pro3?

The pro2 pulley's won't fit - and I don't know of anyone that makes aftermarket alloy pulleys (but why would you want to fit them?)

Default Pro 3 Under Repair

Dongskie: you silly boy!!! I'll send you a bill for my talent fee!

Sosidge: king pin was the one holding the knuckles onto the upright. we did discover that the treads on the stock knuckles were stripped already due to one bump too many. Cracked two uprights, too (not at the same time though).

Good reason to get the new 3 degree uprights!!!! Can't wait for them to arrive from Hong Kong.

Thanks too for the inputs on the shaft problem---that happens too.

Whatever anyone says, I love my HPI.

Default Help me!

Hi I love my pro3 but can't figure how to make it handle and the front diffs are always braking.

Is there a cure for the front diff, being always ruined by the CVD's, is there such a things as a CVD designed only for the front which should be longer?

I am about to give up on it.

Where can i buy after market differentials for the Pro3? (OVA or HB)

Thanks

If you are breaking the front outdrives, try putting 2 shock o-rings in each outdrive. This acts as both a cushion and a centering aide. The problem isn't necessarily the outdrives are weak, but more of the fact there is too much side-to-side play in the assembly. I highly suggest trying this your next time around. I have found it very simple to do but also very helpful...

Thanks for the reply, I did that already because there was too much side to side play, is there a way to make the outdrives become longer(hehehehe) or the cvd's to be extended?

Will buy a new outdrive again! hehehehe
hey! Will the differential pulley from Robinson Racing fit the pro3?

Thanks again!
