Spec-V is only worth around $280.00+/- and are no longer available...for $480.00 they are selling the Hara Edition Kit.
If you're in the US and interested in a Hara Edition kit PM me.

Default NO!!!!

there are currently 4 specs of Pro3
Spec S.Basic asian spec.dogbones+no turnbuckles
Spec R.US spec.CVD+turnbuckles
Spec V.Graphite chassis+turnbuckles+MANY options like front one way

ANDDDDDDDDDDD

HARA EDITION=fully upgraded=carbon fibre allround+titanium+aluminium+delrin diffs etc
specS is $130
Spec R is discontinued i think.
Spec V is >260
Hara $500.
Many of us dont think it's worth the $480 to get a Hara edition.

Default Carpet setup

Try this as a starting point...

Everything standard except

HB top deck fitted

Front
Jaco Blue foams
25mm Yellow springs (~390g/mm)
80wt shock oil
3deg caster block w/1mm spacer
Camber set to even wear (1-2deg)

Rear:
Jaco Blue foams
27mm Grey springs (~340g/mm)
60wt oil
HB 1deg toe in blocks (probably not necessary, but I couldn't be bothered to take them off)
Camber set to even wear

May be worth trying a higher rear roll centre (camber link on upper hub carrier hole) if track is tight.

Default Left front wheel wobbling

anyone notice that the front left wheel of the Pro3 wobbles?i think it's bcos of the amount of links (from knuckle to servo = 4) and the wobbling/shaking is thus 4 times that of the right side.at high speeds i find the wobbling a litlle worrisome.
Any tips to reduce it?Im using all stock except titanium turnbuckles.

A little play in the steering linkages is good - it helps the car run in a straight line.

If you want to cut down the play, you'll have to fit tighter ballcups - I think the RPM one's will fit on, if not you'll have to but a set with different balljoints as well.

Check your problem isn't wear or damage to the wheel bearings or components themselves.

Right now it's a little.the wheel can wobble about 1 degree more than any other wheel from end to end(as viewed from the top).but im afraid it will end up like another Pro3 i have that is wobbling like mad at full throttle.front right wheel shows none of this.
I think i wanna try using the flanged-ball connection like the one used on the shock towers...is that a good option?

Those flanged balls are bulky, so may not fit, and not such a tight fit either (don't know what ends you would use on them anyway).

Default Pro3 wobbles

lee82gx;

Try some shock O-rings between the ball cup and stud to take up the slop. Works really good in the steering and on the shock balls. The soft blue or clear ones work the best.
