Default gaz8...

i gess you could say the pro 4 isent a great carpet car because it hasent been winning big carpet races. but i know it is an imporvment over the tc3 and tc4. it has a much more free drive train and it has better handling. i know a guy at my local track who took 2nd in the paved nationals with his tc3 last year. he just got a pro4 and he loves it. and he is pulling times that are a few 10ths off the 19t guys! he says can really fell an improvement in handling and the car is very smooth to a AE. we race on carpet and since he has switched over to the pro4 his lap times did improve by a few 10ths from the tc3.

my 2 cents pro4 is a good car but it all matters on whos hands it is in

Default Thanks....

fjm9898. My TC4 handles great at the moment and I was having a hard time making up my mind to get rid of it. That's what I wanted to read to justify it. I was thinking of the TF TC4, but I think the Pro 4 makes more sense to me. I hope I will like the Pro 4 over my TC4. You never know until you have had it in your hands for awhile.

mine has a 3mm chassis and 2.5mm top plate. i think chris is running a 2.5mm top plate and a 2.5mm chassis. we just have normal hpi parts not BMI. i think the BMI is a little stiffer 3mm then the HPI 3mm and since we run stock with rubber tires flex isent as big of a deal. if you run foam on carpet i would think the BMI chassis might be a better choice. but i would do what i am working on doing. get a little over everything so you can make adjustments. i have both 3mm chassis and top plate and 2.5mm chassis and top plate. and i am also going to get the new 2.25mm top plate. this will give you opions if you swtich from asphalt to carpet or foam to rubber tires like i do (run both aspahlt and carpet)

Default Have you done the upper deck mod and o-ring mod...

to the BMI chassis? Just wondering if you have ANY tweek issues with the BMI chassis? Wondered if the mods eliminated it completly on the BMI? Thanks for the help, not much response from the Pro 4 thread. Sorry for the bla...bla...bla, but I like to compare and think out my future purchases. Limited budgets will do that to you.
