TigeRyan,

I have "old" belts and new low friction belts and didn't notice a big difference except the price I paid for the new belts which are more expensive ...

MikeR, my compliment to you guy. Very neutral and precise with your evaluations. I have read a lot of your post and I see that you have done some homework on the Pro3. The guy BLAZN420 has talked much junk in the past but never did talk about his successes.

Keep up the good work MikeR!

hey a couple of nights ago i did the castor hub brace mod to my pro3, the one with the turnbuckle that connects the hub to the aluminum standoff connected to the chassis. and yesterday i tryed it at the track and it made a big difference in handling, it also seemed to make the front end more sensative to adjustments. what do some of you guys that have done this mod have to say about it.

Default HB Differentials!!!!!!!

I used them for the first time on the front!!!!!!

and it looks so nice and strong and the CVD is in the outrives more compared to the stock outdrives!!!!!!

BUT!!!!

Those things break easily!!!! hit a barier for the first time and it broke!!!!

3,200yen down the drain!!!! S--t!!!!!

Do you guys experienced the same thing??(to those who used HB diffs??)

What can I do to prevent this from happening again???

Thanks!!!!

what I meant was, is anyone here using HB differentials and experience the same thing?? just a small hit and it breaks easily??

does the HB differentials really break easily compared to the Graphite outdrives of HPI??

outdrives are not suppose to break in a small/light crash, right??

well i was just not expecting it to break that easily?? and to think I have 3 moe sets of HB diffs!!!! Grrrrrrrrrr. . . . . .

Ernestf.... thanks for the wonderful comment!!!!!!

The material on the HB diff is Delrin... it is not as strong at ghaphite. THe stock graphite diffs are still stronger and lighter than the HB or OVA diffs. You are better off using the HB diff in the rear and the stock originals in the front.
The only way not to break any more diffs is don't crash... just remember "slow is fast"

DiD you guys here the "Hara" pro3 is coming the end of June? I might buy a V-Spec and just go from there because 450 plus shipping is roughly the price for the hara. Maybe if it was like of the pro kits at 300 or so I would buy it. What do you guys think?

if the stock hpi ones are lighter and stronger then why not use them?

Hi! I would use the graphite diffs for the front but its just too short! the cvd always goes out of the outdrives when taking fast turns even with the ring.

IF ONLY HPI / MIP MADE THE CVD'S FOR THE PRO3 2mm longer then there will be no problem!!!

Hey guys any cure for this????

I noticed that in this forum I am the only one who brings this up, probably all of you are using one ways up from! Hmmmmm. . .

give me more time to be a better driver and i will use the one ways.

Thanks,
Lem

Anyone know of HPI coming out w/ a shaft driven car? I was at the Reedy race and saw Atsushi Hara and his teammate Daisuke Yoshioka driving some kind of prototype shaft driven car. It looked like it handled awsome even thought they had problems w/ parts breaking, but what can you expect from a prototype.
