I have the layshaft mount. I guess I'll have to get the motor mount.


I have seen that mount that integrates all pieces. Unfortunately I think it's only available in HK...I don't think I'll be able to get it anytime soon...

Found someone in Japan that is getting me all the Blue stuff for the Pro3.... with all the things going on... maybe awhile before I get it plus he's in the military stationed overthere. Let's have Peace before I get my parts and pieces... he he he..

When I do get my blue parts... I'll try to get some pics and post...

Stanley: I use HPI grey spring (#6852). You may also use SpeedMind yellow spring as an alternative.

Stanley: HPI grey is the hardest. Your blue is #6757 or #6851??
SpeedMind Yellow is also the hardest...

Anyone here knows how long does it take for a product to be shipped from USA to Asia (Singapore) by air mail? Thanks.

The "normal" schedules have been interrupted as a result of the recent terrorist actions in NYC. Passenger air travel is back on schedule for most airlines/locations, and I suspect that freight is also returning to predictable schedules. Actual shipping time from supplier to you may vary depending on locations and how many "touches" a package receives in the supplier's shipping process.

Shipping to USA to Asia about 5 to 7 days via USPS priority mail.
2 - 3 days via Fed-ex... that will cost you an arm and a leg....

Good news everyone.. Cross Racing is back in the USA.
Schumacher will be the US distributor.

Cross has some nice stuff for the PRO3.

I've had a Pro3 for about a month now. I like the car alot, and I've had pretty good luck with it, only breaking one A-arm. Spare parts aren't always available at my LHS though, and I'd like to lay in a supply of spares so that I can minimize downtime. Any suggestions on what spares I should focus on?

Thanks,

Lots of arms, possibly the hubs, c-block, steering knuckle, shock towers. hinge pins in case they fall out and you can't find them.
everything else should hold out just fine.

Did you contact HPI about getting the revised set of arms? They were giving away 4 pairs of front and rears long while ago along with the revised diffs. Don't know if that offer is still good... you may want to contact there customer service and find out.

good luck with your Pro3.
