What's up Tone, I was going to race this last weekend but tried out an airsoft game, that's my newest hobby. I'll be down there maybe next weekend, not sure yet. Call Thad, he wants to sell his wheels!

That Pro 4 prototype does look pretty slick. Wish I could see one in action somewhere. The closest I get to high-level racing around here is watching Paul Lemieux kick mr. losi's butt at Golden Tee whenever we go to Trackside.

One thing I will give HPI a lot of credit for is great parts distribution. I have had trouble getting Losi stuff at our local shop ever since the Horizon thing, and we have always had trouble getting parts for Yokomo, Kyosho and so on. HPI and Associated are always spot-on.

Anyway, just my two cents.

Pro3racing - nope, pro drivers don't sell their r/c cars, these are wheels for his real car.

If you are breaking the front outdrives in crashes/t-bones, try putting 2 shock o-rings in each outdrive. This acts as both a cushion and a centering aide. The problem isn't necessarily the outdrives are weak, but more of the fact there is too much side-to-side play in the assembly. I highly suggest trying this your next time around. I have found it very simple to do but also very helpful...

In front a got a one way but what do you do for the rear does this work as well for the back.

They have a very eficient staff and are courteous. ANd delivery is very fast.

I got the last pair of HB Differentials but they still have a lot of OVA differentials for 4,300yen!!!!! a piece (about U.S.$32 each)
