Check the HPI site, the Pro4 is listed as discontinued. The question is how long will HPI make replacement parts.

Others have had good luck. I'm not as careful or skillful. I have broken several...

Use the new FT TC4 dog bones. They are much stronger than the HPI, MIP or earlier TC3 and TC4 bones. Thus, they resist bending better than any bone other than the Ti bones that cost a mint in the US....

I agree, I've never broken an arm on my Pro4. However, I have bent the stock alu dog bones, the MIP steel units and even the extra strong/thick AE units from the FT TC4. Of those, the AE units are by...

I have to disagree about the Pro4

The Pro4 is my third TC in a year. First was an AE TC4 that was pretty solid, but I couldn't get it to handle well, so my 6 year old son drives it now. Second was a Losi JRX-s. It was also fairly...

Note, this is now standard on the Hara edition, so take a look at the instructions for that kit for some detailed views and directions on how much to tighten things.

The reason the Pro4 isn't mentioned anymore in big races is that HPI is now sponsoring everyone to run the Hotbodies Cyclone (also owned by HPI). Thus, no big name pros run the Pro4. Based on its...

Broken rear bearings

I've had my Hara Pro4 for about 4 months. I think it is a great car, but I have been breaking things on it more frequently than on my previous cars (TC4 and JRXs).

Now that my driving is...

I know you indicated that a TA-05 was not a choice, but I just want to put in a good word for it one more time. You can probably get it on a screaming deal from an Asian mail order shop and it is the...

I bought one pack and it is stronger than all the IB3800 packs I have. It also seems to take more charge than all the 3800s. For the price, it is a great pack. However, I don't think it is ROAR...

If it is strictly between the Pro4 and the Team TC4 (not the Factory Team), then the Pro4 is a far better car.

The Factory Team TC4 is in the same class (and price range) as the Pro4, so between...

I know you said you don't like the chatter from the spool, but I think you should give it another try. The spool on a Pro4 and a tight track makes lots of sense. You can brake with no spin, you get...

Thanks, I already got that, the HPI CF drive shaft, the alu spring perches, the delrin pivot balls, the delrin 5x8x2.5 bearing adapters and the alu shock balls on my last trip.

Thanks for the input guys. I have the Hara kit, so I already have the light weight input shafts. I will look into getting the alu camber link and perhaps I'll see some other stuff at the store that...

Thanks for the link. It looks like HPI sells alu bevel gears in Japan as well as alu upper arm supports. They also sell alu hubs and steering knuckles as well as alu steering linkage arms.

Are any...

I've had very good results with a KO 2123. It is very fast, very strong and can take lots of abuse without breaking. I've also had good luck with the Futaba 9541. That one is in my 6 year old son's...

Good question. For my lather motor, I tried using a Monster Stock that I had lying around. I powered it with my ICE charger in motor break-in mode. If I tried to make more than just the most...

You will find much better parts support for the HPI in the Bay Area. RC Tech, All Speed, Sheldons and the various Hobby Towns all stock parts for the HPI.

HPI's non-US bling

Does anyone know why HPI sells lots more bling and functional hop ups outside the US than in the US?

Take a look at the HPI website in Japan and you will see that HPI has graphite drive shafts,...

My original driveshaft was also showing some wobble at higher speeds (with just a stock motor). It did not show any visible signs of wear however. Nonetheless, I have crashed a few times at...

Since I have already invested in the parts and since my front bearings were squeeking, I think I'll try the new smaller bearings. However, if as you say they are much more fragile, I'll be replacing...

The adapters allow you to run a 5x8x2.5 mm bearing instead of the larger 5x10x4 mm bearing. The adapters are sleeves that take up the extra space. HPI says the smaller bearings are lighter and offer...

I agree with this as well. See about picking up a TA-05 from a cheap source. I've heard of them for as little as $125 in the US and got one for $90 in Japan two weeks ago. This car will likely be...

That is very interesting. HPI makes more flexible suspension arms for the Pro4. These are said to help on low traction surfaces. Because of the parts overlap, they also fit the new Hot Bodies...
