also maybe try www.rcmushroom.com

(i think thats right)
Tags Massive Modelshop in Doncaster have several bevel gear sets in stock (www.tagmodels.co.uk) unfortunately I don't think their site lists them but you can always ring up if you need them.

i hate to think how much the rx will cost....the kr302f is already 109

but if they do some out with one (hopefully it will be ko's own ) and it might be worth the notes

Next weekend I'll be out at OP with CIVIC91 running the races. I hadn't planned any trips out to Fastlane until later this year.

Hey guys. I've read the last few pages of this thread (its a bit longer than the one at RC zone ) and I hear you guys talking about these few problems with the pro 4, tweak, gearboxes etc... Is HPI working on solving these? Im sure they are but still wondering how long i should wait to buy the pro 4, to ensure that I get a good quirk-free kit.

The fastest car on the market is deemd by most to be the associated Tc3 and its a pile of doo doo compared to this kit and its been out for years.

Buy the pro4 and be happy. There is NOTHING so wrong with this kit to put off buying it.

Handfitting is essential in every Tc3 and Losi XXXS and even more to get each's drivetrain as free as the Pro4's with no work at all. The only other kit that cmpared in QC is Xray.

Okay-off my soapbox.

Now that I own this car-I am like-its amzing what well put up with (TC3) because its fast. if the Tc3 wasnt so awesome-it would get ragged on so hard for all its deficiencies.

When you gte the Pro4-it will need a better bumper-but dont they all?
