LOL

Sell other gear Rick, keep the V2 until u can assess if and where the V3 is better, if at all for you.
You do consistently excellent with your V2 and if you sell it and the v3 doesn't work as well for you, you'll then have to build another V2.

My V2 has proven its worth to me and instead of selling it, I cannibalized the electronics off of it but it bothered me enough I just bought a Justock for it on Monday because it's going to be ready to go and I will be doing direct comparison between it and the YZ on the same tires and motor and see which one comes out on top.


BTW… Tell PR they NEED to design a better looking lid for the V3. It's pretty harsh on the retinas. LOL

Are these actually in stock anywhere? Hobbypro website shows them but does not specify if they are back ordered or not. Here in the UK the first batch already sold out and wont have another for a couple weeks...but I have a US shipping address also so ordering from the US is not an issue for me.

EDIT: just ordered from EVO hobbies

Can't beat the durability, it's probably one of if not the easiest builds out there and i was a whole lap faster with it than my v2 the first time out. Extremely happy with mine! I am racing on carpet though

Ran today on carpet at Speed Factory RC. Was able to equal my best lap of my RB6 on first time out with v3.

Are the slipper pads on the V3 updated/improved? Some of the pics I've seen they look different. I use the garodisc pads on my V2 and will probably buy another set if the V3 ones aren't good.

They are different, the V3 pads feel a little abrasive to the touch and so far have been consistent.

If anyone is running on carpet and using the yatabe setup this spring chart may be helpful.

Was going to order one this week but they are out of stock. Guess I will wait for the 2nd round of the to come in. Gives me more time to save up a few more bucks toward it and for some extra pars.
