I haven't tried the buggy with battery sideways, but I have my truck set up like that and it's pretty good. Only pain is you have to tape your battery in place.

Nice Rick. I see you switched schemes.

Hey people,

Just wanted to bring you all up to speed on what’s been going on with Hobby-Pro USA. At least the bit I know about.

It seems Andrew is no longer the US Distributer for the brand and by now I’m sure everyone else has seen a decline in the way of lack of parts support, inaccuracies with orders themselves, products inconsistent with descriptions and a few other issues.

Personally I grew tired of dealing with Hobby-Pro a while ago and have been ordering all my Hobby-Pro/PR Racing stuff exclusively from CRPPLUS.com which is owned by a fellow racer Rick Jenkins and the customer service he offers is literally unparalleled and he processes and ships orders faster than anyone else in the industry that I’ve ever dealt with. He knows all too well the issues I’ve had with my HP wheeler and is the only one who gave it to me straight and actually went out of his way to contact PR directly to investigate for me as they refuse to speak with anyone who isn’t a dealer, and it is because of him I was able to finally purchase the center slipper for my SB401.

So if anyone is concerned, don’t be. CRPPLUS.com will be supporting us and the brand quite well.

Going to post this in all the Hobby-Pro/PR threads on here so everyone is aware. Hope this is of help to everyone.

Thanks incubus! I have recently got into the PR cars (eBay cars) and noticed HP didn't have the kits listed whe I first looked into them (month ago roughly) and now basically nothing with no response to my email about them carrying the products. Been down a similar road with Andy and the agama line a while back.

Anyway looks like I'll be getting parts from Rick.

Yes as my new local painter didn't want to do the checkered Flags he wasn't confident so I said no problem let's do this paint scheme

I noticed on the Hobby Pro website this buggy comes with a 3 gear transmission. I plan on racing mod 2wd buggy outdoors this summer. Would this buggy be a good choice for bumpier medium traction track where tires like horseshoes, double dees and sometimes goosebumps hook up?

While I think you could get it to work, I don't think it would be as planted as most would like. The V2 car would be better suited for those conditions, it would take less adjustments/frustration to get it hooked up.
The V3 is a great car, it's just designed for higher bite conditions.

Schweeeet!

Get your painter to use fluorescent yellow moving forward.

Thanks for the input. I figured that was the case.

I run my V2 sideways. It made the car turn better and had a more balanced feel. I really like it that way. You've got to do some dremel work but it's worth it

Yes, this buggy is awesome. It's very stable and predictable. I've had mine for a couple of months and couldn't be happier.
