I think it will help if we know what surface and class you will run... And I wouldn't really rule out the Hara Pro4 if you aren't ruling out the XRay FK'05. Both are equally expensive.

I like the way you Xray owners are so vociferous in your support of Xray chassis'. Keep it up.

I run a pro4, cant think of much good to say about it!! lol

Apart from the nce purple bits.

I have a yoko BD on its way.

I cant seem to find a setup i'm happy with,

It is very fast, quick out of corners, but doesnt seem to want to turn in and if I'm not real careful setting up for the turn it washes out mid corner.

Its probably just me

I'm relegating it to stock, gonna use the BD for mod.

I've always found yokomo cars to be very tuneable.

The pro4 is my 1st HPI chassis and has me stumped.

Try a spool or diff front drive. Also run the pivot blocks flat on the chassis...And I found if you run a sway-bar on one end of the car...try running one on the other end too! If I didn't keep stripping drivetrain gears I would have kept mine and been known as XRay-killa instead of BlackKat!

I found my Pro4 to work almost exactly like my Tamiya EvoIII Surikarn. Same gear problems too

Yeah I had the same gear stripping probs in the pro4 so went to a fr diff. , solved the stripping problem but the tradeoff is the steering issues I have now.
I have just sold my Evo3, loved that car! cornered like on rails.

I'm hoping for great things from the Yoko BD after seeing them in action recently.
