the mamba is ok - nothing like the schulze tho... I find at really low speed, it tends to cut power to the motor full stop sometimes, although other than that it's been pretty good - probably should look into the settings of it tho - i haven't yet even looked at em - pretty much just a plug and play for the moment -lol-

I hear those slyder's are good - personally i stay away from the sensored gear tho, mainly for battery/motor options as i have a few other rc's, plus the fact i hate wires, so i try and keep them to a minimum -lol-

Seriously want another u-force 75 tho, and kinda wanna swap the 380c 7t out for a higher turn/lower kv - the 7t has too much pace, and doesn't really need it for most of the tracks we setup - but definately want another 380c - it's been so reliable, plus it's cheap and light as too!!

will update here when i get round to driving the thing -lol-

I take it you got one too then right RC nut? how do you like it man? what changes from stock settings have you made if any? =)

I can't see this car for anything but drifting, there is 14 freaking onces of weight on the rear tires!! Inertia is not this car's friend, and the weight balast would be way off if you expect your rear tires to last more than a run.

.. but isn't this car marketed for drifting, and not touring? so why all the negativity...?


@danhvfcsd

can you post how the car behaves/handles? TIA!

No negetivity here, that was just directed to people who say that it is the new pro 5, or how they wondered how it would handle in a touring situation. I was saying that the vehicle was designed for drifting and nothing else, really.

Sure thing Minami =) I'll try and find some time to take it out on boxing day to a track

hmmm - i have some hard rubber yokomo's somewhere i think too, so i'll do some comparisons and toying - i'm interested to see how much of a difference those 'Chassis Rigidity' posts make with the 3 tyres i have (t-drift/hard yokomo/abs), and if any changes made can be counteracted or possibly even improved with some suspension or other tuning...

I didn't change a thing as it ran great right out of te box. Drifts were totaly predictable and you can hold them untill your ready to transfer. I ran both T- Drifts and ABS I want to try a super drift or type A and carry more speed and see what happens. Did you check G.D. for my build thread? it wasn't as detailed as yours but you get the point. I here you on the wiring with the sensored motors. I tryed to do a sano job, Heres a few pic's of wiring and a body shot...

That's a neat job on the wiring mate - i hate the bloody things - we're currently organising a group buy locally here for a shitload of servo connector pins to save us all soldering our servos/escs -lol-

Imagine modifying this car to take the suspension of the D4 sport/Cyber10b. Then you have a full on race/sport buggy haha. Some people did this with the Pro2. They took that and bolted the RS4MT(the electrin one) chassis to it to have full raced out 4wd rc truck haha.

why state the obvious? they do know how to read right, it say in the box ... "Pro-D High Performance Drift Car'.

anyways, just like to share a mod i did the other day. i call it the Pro-D viagra!





btw, it's made from a beatup spare Pro 4 chassis. the electronics is temp, i broke my slyder and still waiting for the replacement.

oh and this is the shell that goes on top of it ... for now ...



i had a cyclone moore-speed that i traded for this, plus some cash. i was curious how a drift spec from HPI works. i think it would be in the same league as a Cyclone TC too, if properly setup, the design on the D chops off huge amounts of time spent setting up a touring car. this is really a great chassis for drifting ... now i'm wonder how the Cyclone Drift will fare, i'm eying that next.

I think it is a discontinued kit by HPI... You can probably find some compatible items from other kits... But you can also go to R2 hobbies... They were selling a chinese copy of this chassis, I think they are still spare parts...
