Mark - the new centre front prop is part number HB61578. Not sure if it's included in with the slipper set, i'll try and find out during the week.

Terry - no confirmed due date as yet, but I shouldn't think it'll be too long. Hopefully within the next month. I'll update this when it's been confirmed.

Hi Guys,

I used the the new D4 Worlds parts on my car yesterday and am extremely impressed. The new slipper really does affect the cars performance in a very positive way, bag loads more traction, and a real smoothness... plus it stays exactly how it is set. The new lower wing mount looks really cool too!

Sit tight for when the parts/kits come in, they are well worth the wait!

Just built the new slipper up.

Anyone using the new slipper and running a centre one-way, you will need a shorter propshaft #HB61458, as the one that comes with the slipper won't fit.

Just thought I'd let you all know.

Haha, yep.

No, I ordered the slipper when I got my drive with them but didn't have the centre one-way then. But the one-way came first so I fitted that at the weekend. Never thought of the fact it required a shorter shaft!

....and you can do a lot more with a smaller shaft!

Also, if you haven't already found out. In my post above about the propshaft.....ingore it.

I've had every propshaft that they make and so far none fit when running the centre one-way.

Come on get one made.

New slipper goes together a treat though. and works really well.

Edit - Dont worry....I know.

Although I would never have thought of it.....its cost me a bloody fortune buying all those prop shafts.

In general the items you need are...

HB61587 - Slipper kit
HB61550 - Shock Bodies (f)
HB61551 - Shock Bodies (r)
HB61556 - Spring Adjusters (x2)
HB61552 - Shcok tops with Bleed screws (x2)
HB61588 - Front Wishones, Wing Mount & Bumper kit

Other items included in the W.E. kit are..

HB????? - New Shock towers (Increased strength)
HB????? - New Chassis (with increased clearance for new style brushless motors)
HB61581 & HB61582 - New Ball-Studs (removed the hex in the ball for strength and changed to normal style)

You may also have noticed that the C/F looks different. This is due to a change of source. The quality of the items is still top notch.

For those looking for a complete kit the part number for that is HB61700

Think that about covers it all.....
