Default I also need that part!

The cross pulley is about $26.00 at RCModel.

My HPI aluminum pulley is starting to say goodbye!!!!!

I have that cross Pulley too. sorry don't know where to get it.. I wish I had one too. I don't really like the new HPI spur gear mounts either.. I've stripped many spur gears everytime I hit the track.. I use the spurgear mount from Square. made like the original stock part with 4 screws.

I wonder why you stripped gears with the new mount? I noticed an improvemnt with gear mesh and no spur wobble after I put mine on.

BTW looks like HPI's forum is no longer. They now have links to other forums and are installing a new FAQ system for answering questions.

don't know why I strip so many gears...I guess I better stay away from the boards..
I've tried changing rear bulkhead supports too. I tried the new HPI 2mm rear bulkhead support..still stripped. Then tried Penguin graphite supports...less stripping.. changed spur gear adapter to Square... problem gone...

No more HPI forum...that sucks!
BTW..that FAQ has been there for awhile aready...
I guess we can always invade the Euro site...

Hpis website has one I think. Or you can try Thad's setup up for high bite aspuhlt as a starting point. I will try to find one.
here we go:
Jean-Marc's Modified Carpet Setup:
12/10/99 - 12/12/99

Front:
40 wt oil, #4 pistons, 65mm total length
Yellow Progressive springs, modified shock positions to lay down shocks (extra lower hole drilled between A position and hinge pin hole, top of shock mounted in #7 hole)
1 degree negative camber, 8 degrees caster, 2 degrees kick-up
Toe-in: 0 degrees
Turnbuckle link in stock position (U-2)
Spec M1 tires with firm inserts, CA glue on outside sidewall (to reduce steering)
Ride Height 5.5mm
189mm total width

Rear:
35 wt oil, #3 pistons, 66mm total length
Yellow Progressive springs, modified shock positions to lay down shocks (extra lower hole drilled between A position and hinge pin hole, top of shock mounted in #2 hole)
1 degree negative camber, 2 degrees toe-in
Turnbuckle link in stock position (#2)
Spec M1 tires with stock inserts
Ride Height 6mm
189mm total width

Team Orion Chrome 12x6 motor, 32/122 gearing

Dodge Stratus body

Novak Cyclone ESC

Ackerman link on inner hole (less steering on outside tire), front #A790 chassis post added.

This set-up is with saddle pack batteries.

Jean-Marc used an extra o-ring inside the shock caps for a quicker rebound.

Good luck racing

Smile Pro2 Setup

Cheers team AE ,
Thank you, thank you ,thank you for the detailed setup. I will try the setup and seehow my ride handles to the changes. One more question if you don't mind, in your opinion, should i run the the car full time 4WD, full time one way, centre one way or just front one way? I hope i'm not too much of a bother but i would really like to do well in my next race

P.S. THad's setup calls for some really advance procedure like drilling holes on the arm, can i do without?

Rgds and Gratitude
Daren

Default Pro3 Narrow Chassis

What are the PROs and CONs of the various Pro3 narrow chassis available in the market?

1. Kai Replica Chassis
2. HB Chassis
3. HPI #73814

I went from the graphite moulded tub chassis to the HB carbon fiber plate chassis. A HB upper deck was fitted in both cases.

I found the following with the Plate Chassis:
1. Car is more flexible with the HB chassis and upper deck combo compared to the HPI moulded graphite and HB upper deck.
2. Electrics are exposed to T-Bones and are easy to knock loose.
3. Had glitching problem with servos? Never experienced before with other makes of chassis.

I have since gone back to the HPI moulded graphite chassis. The plate chassis looks nice and is lighter but is not really practicle for street bashing or club racing.

purplepro3,

1.------Kai chassis----I’ve never tried

2------HB chassis----2.2mm very light weight. The amount of flex is comparable to the hpi molded graphite/plastic tub with the HPI “full length” upper deck. Good for out door racing on lower bite tracks.

3.------HPI plate carbon fiber chassis. 3.0mm. this chassis used in conjunction with the HPI full length upper deck is by far my favorite. This chassis set up has a super precise feel and little to no chassis flex. Good performance practically anywhere.


Dragoonz09,

Sure you can do without drilling holes in your arms…..but do you want to win?

That was just something I was playing around with at that time. Not really necessary.

Thad...what's going on with the HPI usa forum...?

Kai and HB chassis about the same in performance.

I have the new HPI graphite chassis plate and upperdeck combo, graphite arms and C-blocks..I'll have to agree with Thad..handling is much improved and precise. Virtually no flex at all.

The forum is going to be changed to some sort of QA format?

It should be more helpful.

So that means we can't post and show off our cars...
no more interaction with other racers...
I've made some very good friends on the HPI Forum..

Looks like I'll be making some new friends in Europe.
