Default Pro-3 problems

You will really be amazed at how much difference 5+ amps can make in the overall power & speed of your car.

I have not been one to duplicate a pro racers set-up on any of my cars. These are usually VERY specific set-ups for very specific tracks and conditions. If you are lost on your set-up. Try going back to the kit settings and work from there. Most important of all is to keep a current set-up sheet and to make notes of anything that you change or want to change on your car.
Most expert drivers will tell you it's all about having a balanced chassis set-up.

Default 3000HV's

That's going to be my next purchase, some 3000HV cells. I like the voltage numbers on the labels when compared to 2400's by the same matcher.

Default Oneway advantages

I would like for someone that has one (a oneway diff) to tell me what advantage does a FRONT oneway offer over a diff for this car. I have the countershaft oneway pulley, but I haven't seen any gain from using it.

The way i understand it and follow, is that oneways are ideally for big tracks with long sweeping turns. The front oneway allows you to carry more speed through the turns because you basically have two seperate axles working independently of each other. Rather than with a diff the performance of one axle is restricted and or dependent upon the performance of the other.

I personally feel that the center oneway is less effective than the oneway diff (front oneway), thogh i have been told from various people that it is quite the opposite.

And i know first hand that dual oneways are a nightmare!

hope this helps.

The new one-way diff is available now from RainbowTen in Japan. it's about $50.00 don't know when it will make it to the US.


I run both the center and front one-ways on my car..the car is much faster with a dual set-up. Not only do you get great cornering speed but also gain is straightaway speed as well..

Default Which oneway??

I have read that HPI is going to introduce a "new" front oneway for the Pro-3. Is this true?
Should I wait for the new one or is the older oneway good enough. I already have the countershaft oneway.

Thanks,

Yes new front one-way was just released. lighter and more durable the current model. it will cost about $50.00usd.
Not available in the US yet. expect it to be here around spring time of next year or buy direct from Rainbowten in Japan.

Pro 3 vs. Mission

Hi everybody,
I hope nobody minds if a new guy jumps right in with one of those annoying newbie questions !!
I've run a few different cars in my brief RC Car career and I'm just trying to find a good compromise. I really can't afford to keep trying to stock alot of different manufacturers parts. I've run TC3's, Tamiya ta04,tb2, and the Schumacher Mission. So far ,The Mission and all Schumacher products have shown themselves to be Strong, Reliable and great handling. So somebody or everybody tell me how the HPI stuff compares. I just got a HPI Rally and I like the construction. Are all HPI cars as well built as the Schumacher?? How does the PRO3 really handle? What are the shortcomings? Really would appreciate some input. Feel free to e-mail me privately at [email protected] Armando

Default Pro-3 oneway

rc-zombies;

How is Rainbow 10 on shipping to the USA? Heard of any problems?

rcpigz;

All HPI cars in general are good beggining cars for most people.
Parst support is usually real strong in the USA.
For racing, they tend to have very flexible and sloppy suspension components which will make the cars slower in the corners than most other cars.
I have a Pro-3 which has been good to me so far. They have had their share of teething pains. If you look around you can find them for around $120 usd. If I decide to ever purchase another electric car, it will probally be the X-ray. It has adjustable everything just like my Nitro cars.

Default pro 3

Thanks Popsracer,
What about all the HPI hop ups I see? Do they help with the problems? I like the Xray also. Just looking at the way its built makes me drool. I race strictly asphalt. Do you beleive the Pro 3 with SOME upgrades can be as competitive and reliable as the Mission? Thanks, Armando

Default Anyone?

Hi,
I'm looking into buying an after market diff for my Pro 3.
I've found three:

Square (part # SQH-27)
HB (part # HB-60123)
and I guess its
E5 (part # ova p440)

Is there anyone else that makes one, and most important which is the best one?

Also, which one-way is the best:

HPI # 72291
HPI # 72436

thanks for the help,
charlie
