Remove the foam, but put the plastic spacer it fits around back in the shock.

Also, remove the red o-ring from the top of the shock - the bladder's edge replaces it.

KoyaDale: as soosidge said, you can simply take out the foams an leave the plastic the foams slide into so that you can maintain the same droop. or if you can find a set of plastic limiters of the same thickness then they should do the trick. ok ba?

some questions:

1. does the wide rear body mount option have an effect on handling?

2. what front C hub are you using, 6 or 8? i use 6.

purple pro -

1. I very much doubt it.

2. I prefer the 6 if there's a bit of grip - but i too am using 8 at the moment for slippy floor racing.

One of the LHS close by has two or three Pro 3's available for $160.00. They are new, still in the box, could be shipped most any place, if anyone is interested.

They're doing that everywhere.

They just can't sell them.

Mirage in UK is offering dealers 3 for the price of 2.

I can't believe that HPI is happy with whats happening with this car. I wouldn't be surprised if HPI pushed another car out the door before the end of the year.

Hopefully they do a little more testing with the car this time before releasing it.

Rumor has that the Pro 3 is no longer available as it was introduced. There is a similar car with a new carbon fiber chasis that has been seen at some of the major races in Japan and Europe, this may be the replacement/upgrade that people were talking about. I don't know if they are going to change the name or what, but some kind of PR needs to be done after the big hype and let down of the pro 3 feasco.
HPI seems to be heading mostly to the RTR market.

My personal biggest disappointment with the Pro3 is availability of the hop-up parts....You goto HPI Japan and there is a ton of parts available, Cross is putting out parts, but availability in the states has been horrible...

I love my Pro3 but I am starting to think about replacing it just cause I can not convince my LHS's to stock parts for it because they all feel it is a dead car (probably right btw)...so when I break something I have to order from Tower or someone else online or I have to buy a bunch of parts to stock my pit box...either way a hassle...

Hopefully this new Pro3 VSpec or whatever they are going to call it will have a conversion kit from the current Pro3 and hopefully it can get some better press...otherwise Losi here I come...

rmac: I hope your wrong about the heading to RTR thing with HPI. We already lost a good racing company to that route when Traxxas made the switch. Most people remember Traxxas as a RTR and sport company only. I mean try to find someone who actually remembers when Traxxas competed side-by-side with Losi and Assoc. on even terms? Good Luck!

Even though that was a positive move financially for Traxxas, it left us with only Associated and Losi in offroad.

So I hope this little set back with the Pro3 hasn't turned HPI agaist the racing scene or dampened their creative spirit. They should just learn from their mistakes and head back to the CAD screne.
