Default bumper

TO ALL PRO 4 OWNERS!

Please install a full width bumper so that this thread does not get flooded with stories of busted front ends and then the crying about how weak the car is like we get in the Yok SD threads. ITs a pro race car and its going to break. I suspect once the northamerican market gets these cars onto carpet tracks is when we will hear about broken parts.

Here is my SD with proper protection. this is my old buds tc3 bumper cut to fit the yok



I cant wait to see one of these in person

You will always have people blaming the car when they hit things and it breaks, we never expect the same from our real cars......so go figure.....

Broken parts aren't always due to user error. Some cars just use weak parts.

the biggest problem with the testing of all cars is that they have their top pro driver's testing the cars (nothing wrong with that) but they very rarely crash so the durability testing isn't really done until the average racer gets the car for a club race. When the TC3, Losi, and SD came out all of these cars had breakage problems. The TC3 was so bad that they were replacing the broken arms when you sent them in. The yok broke so much that it got the name brokomo. No matter what the will be someone posting mishaps of the new car. With the rep of the pro3 the pro4 already has a strike against it. I wish the best for hpi with the pro 4 as it looks like a good car.

You should always use protection.
