ok i think i understand.....they are experimenting...with battrey/motor position and stuff like that......then when they get it right they will release a molded chasis with the new posititions...makes scence.....and the normal molded hpi chasis already has flex....i doubt if more is needed!..
.i might get the hpi graphite chasis its cheap......wouldnt hurt if i got one!
thanks

Default which upper deck?????

there are several pro3 upper decks out there, but the HB appears to be the most popular. how does the others perform???

i am particularly interested in the kai upper deck which runs thru either side of the batteries, allowing easy access to the battery bars & batteries. anyone got a pic? i know i saw it somewhere.

My old carpet setup (sorry about the tamiya springs)

Body: Protoform Stratus
Motor p2k on about 29/81 or peak 12x1 on about 21/81
GMV12 speedo
KO 713 FET servo
Integy Sanyo 3000's

Front:
Blue Jaco foams (24mm)
Blue tamiya springs (stiff)
40wt oil
6deg caster blocks
Camber links in upper outboard hole, and upper inner inboard hole
Camber set for even tyre wear, erring on the negative side.
Toe in - about 1 deg.
All other settings as kit

Rear
Blue TRC foams (supposedly a little softer)
Blue tamiya springs
60wt oil
Camber links in upper outboard hole and upper inner inboard hole
Camber set for even tyre wear, erring on the negative side
Toe in 1deg (stock motor), 2deg (mod motor)
All other settings as kit

Other info:
Fibre-lyte top-deck fitted
shock bladders fitted
various other little tweaks that don't really do anything

Hope this helps - it's set up to turn in hard, and be responsive through chicanes.

Welcome Atshushi,

Now tell me, why don't you run with the Pro 3 if you are sponsored by HPI?
