BOy-thata really-really tough one. The Pro4 is a shaft drive car and that all by itself is a good reason to own one. The car is a dream to build (As long as you have a 3mm tap). Its easy to drive, quick and has lots of tuning options. The stock chassis leaves something to be desired as some chassis develop a tweak and theres no getting rid of it. Also-I have heard of torque steer issues with it as well-but no-one I know running a thicker aftermarket chassis has any torque steer-even with low mods. Side by side packs as well-no saddlepacks. Its as quiet as a belt car-or quieter!!

NOw-Pro4 vs Xray-both great cars-go with which one makes you go Wow!!! Both killer cars.

i went from the xray evo 2 to the pro4 and i must say i am very impressed with the pro4.

the pro4 kit setup isnt as good as the xray one but once i got a pretty decent setup for the pro4 this thing flies

i would drive an xray again, i must admit they are brilliant cars but i do really like the pro4

I haven't read the recent posts regarding this issue, but i am guessing it has to do with getting the best performance out of your equipment... having the positive battery bar closest to the speedo as possible will give you the option to have the wire as short as possible.. power is lost over the length of the wire, less wire = less power lost...

i think its all down to resistance.

however it also depends on what type of wire you use.

as a lot say 12gauge wire is good for most use but its personal preference really.

Hi guys...

Just got my Pro 4, and i must admit it is so fast out of the box..My last car was a Tamiya Evo 3 SE, and everything i was trying to get my evo 3 to do the pro 4 does straight out of the box..Awesome.. It's so strong...

I guess it can only get better as well..
