Default Satin Black PRO4

Everybody wants the titanium color, why? I love my satin black PRO4. It looks just plain AWESOME! Will take some pics this week and put them up here. But as Jason told me the pics do it no justice. Its just awesome in person. Just my opinion.

Jason

I ran the special Xray chassis, you were right, there is a noticeable difference in performance. It's more aggressive on corners and leans better on sweepers.

Later,
I ordered my BMI Pro4 chassis in black as well. I never did like the looks of the silver yokomo when it came out, and although the graphite Pro4 is cool, I just think the black graphite simply looks the best. I guess I'm old school like that...

Anyone with the BMI/TC3 ever ran their car on Asphalt with foam tires? I'm having trouble with the rear hopping around the corners. There was also another one at the race doing the same thing. I could not get it to stop.

Make sure your ride height is set good. Mine was doing same and i raised the front .5mm higher than rear, it helped a Bit. ALso try Seeing tweak on car that might help.

I ran my TC3 with a BMi setup on it. Never had the rear hop on the asphalt with foam. Maybe the front is over steering the rear of the car some and then it will make the car hop a little. Could be many of things. Try running double purple fronts with purple rear foams. Compound the whole rear tire and no more than 1/2 the front and go from their. The D. Purples are smoother to drive with and might help you out with the hopping.
