The pictures above show the fit of race-level electronics and battery pack. Note how close to the centre of the car all the equipment fits. Cooling slots provide as much air as possible to the battery pack.
 

Aluminium pivot joints are used to adjust and hold hinge pins. aluminium threaded shock bodies, new lower spring perches and aluminium clamp-style wheel hex adapters are standard for a precise fit and feel. aluminium spacers are provided with the Pro 4 kit for adjusting the roll centre and width of the car.

 

New for HPI is the standard 6-ball bearing steering assembly, providing a slop-free steering setup. New ball cups and socketed ball ends are also included to eliminate steering slop. Ackerman can be easily adjusted by moving the steering links to optional holes on the woven graphite steering plate.

 

The aluminium spur gear hub spins on ball bearings for maximum efficiency. The motor mounts to a strong aluminium motor mount. The aluminium drive shaft "floats" within carbon graphite drive cups for less rotational mass.

 

The battery is positioned as close as possible to the shaft, to put the most weight down the centerline of the car. The Pro 4 will be able to fit any standard stick-type or side-by-side battery pack with the included battery rails and strap.

 

The rear ball differential uses carbide diff balls and bevel gears for maximum efficiency and durability. A front one-way differential will be provided with the car.

 

In this picture you can clearly see the extremely low centre of gravity (CG) that is provided by the Pro 4 design. Also, the drivetrain sits as low as possible in the car, something not possible with belt drive cars.

 

The Pro 4 was designed with an all-new shaft drive drivetrain, optimised suspension set up, twin deck C/F chassis and perfected ackerman steering geometry for all types of track layout's and racing conditions. The most noticeable change is to the drive-train which utilises a highly efficient shaft-drive 4wd transmission. Back-to-back track testing revealed the benefits of low maintenance & fast acceleration that a shaft drive transmission offers. The RS4 Pro 4 will be a self-assembly kit form with key items like the radio, ESC, body and tyres left to the choice of the driver. The Pro 4 uses the highest quality materials & will have an amazing specificationto make it a force at the highest level of competition.

Purple Anodised Aluminium Motor Mount & Lightweight Driveshaft

Our HPI Team Drivers will be racing the Pro 4 at all major touring car races as soon as the car is available - ensuring trackside factory support, Team Set-up's and the essential, continued development of the platform to keep the Pro 4 at the top of the winning circle.
