Ditto!

thanks for all the replys, i will definitly not get the hb shock towers, i'll probably get the composite graphite since its cheaper. thanks again.

if you are into woven graphite, use HPI 73042 (front) and HPI 73043 (rear). with this, you can use the HPI shocks

i just bought a PRO3 kit and i have some questions regarding assembly.
I assembled the differetials and one of the steps were to insert a washer+short spring+washer combo into the hole into the middle.but at the sides the is a small hole and the washer comes out thru it all the time...
i also noticed that since it is sealed , it does nothing actually...what is it for ?did i do it right?

The washer/spring/washer should sit naturally beneath the hole. If you're having trouble getting it in, try threading the three parts onto a small screwdriver/allen key, and sliding them in that way.

It's VERY important those parts are assembled correctly, as they are what puts the pressure on the ball diff - without that pressure it'll just slip.

Default Pro-3 shock towers

The HPI graphite shock towers (either ones) fit perfectly with no other modifications needed.

Default Pro-3 tuning

Everyone;

Last weekend I tried changing the rear toe block(1-2-9) to 1 deg to try and get a little more top speed out of my car. I don't think that I really gained any more speed on the straight and it made the car a little looser in the rear (this was ok).
What I did do was change out my P2K2 (Dog) to a new Monster Stock Motor, tuned exactly the same as my P2K2. WOW what a difference in power. I really believe now that my P2K2 was just a DOG motor. It has NEVER been able to keep up on the straights no matter how I geared it.

This weekend I am going to try the Front One-Way to see if I can improve corner speed some.

Question for people who have the One-Way in their cars;

Did you make any spring rate changes when you installed the One-Way?
I've ran the countershaft One-way pulley, but didn't really notice any advantage to using it.

Thanks,

When running a one way you may have to go back to the 2 or 3 toe in the rear becasue of the extra speed the rear end in will follow the front to much and spin out. Try what you have know then chage if you need to , the more coner speed the better right. As for the springs I would agian try with what you have but stiffer will make it not as touchy when running the one way.

Default Rear Toe & One-Ways

TeamAE;

I already put the 2 deg toe block back in, figuring that it would be too loose with only 1 deg in back. I'm going to try 1 step stiffer springs in the F & R to make the car corner flatter.

Thanks for your help,

It's best to use HPI parts in most cases, but i expect a normal M3 washer will do the job.

You need to set up the ESC following LRP's instructions.
