Hi Veecee, with a 3mm chassis you are essentially only changing the height of the inner hinge pin and camber link equally by 0.5mm. They are being raised equally, which does not change the length of your links or the relationship between the links. Therefore, we believe the change of roll center will be very very minute. It would also add more to the cost of the part since this would be a secondary machining process and may result in more rejected parts which I simply can not afford. And last, the area would need be milled out all around the front and back of the car which would reduce strength and decrease the amount of rigidty that a 3mm chassis brings to the car. Therefore I decided against it at this time. Maybe I can look into this process more with future projects.

Hey Rob! Pics should be ready Wednesday night, I hope!

Protc3, thank you!

Ben, YGM. Glad to see your thread on here.

The gear brace is definately looking good. I still haven't had any gear problems with the gears since running it. It's definately a must-have for the pro4 if you run the one-way, imho.

One word "SWEEEEEEEEEEEET"

I like the offset antenna mount on the upper plate as to interfere with the chassis stiffener holes.

Steel spool?

Very nice work on the Pro4 parts! But what about HPI's R40 & the Associated TC3? I'd like to see some good parts for them.
