I know what you mean... I very hesitant to get one especially after the Pro3 fiasco.... I told myself I was going to wait 'til summer to get one...after all the bugs have been worked out...but I couldn't resist... HPI did a great job on this one.

Thank you all for the Servo and ESC comment, that really saved me a lot of time.........and I will get a hand on the S9550 and GT-7 for now.

Yes, I did realized that the HARA Speedo is a bit better, but getting KO product service in state is like........trying to get yourself a Skyline R34 GTR V-spec in USA with left side steering.

I prefer Futaba and Novak........both have great customer service.

It's possible the boxes lists with parts/features/items that does not match what's inside the box. They don't want to be accused of false advertising. CYA

Default Pro 4 warning

I don't know if any of you have encountered this problem but I was disassembling my Pro 4 to rebuild my diff and during the disassembly the outer piece that attaches to the diff case snapped in half in my hand. Just a warning to all other Pro 4 owners be careful when disassembling this car..... especially before qualifying for a big race.... like snowbirds

that is true. i almost did the same. think it would be better much stiffer if we didn't cut the small bar that goes across the two ends.

Ahhh.......thinking of a new car.........should be here in about 2 weeks. What an awsome car.........seems a little wasteful though, when the Pro3 is still winning. (and it IS an awsome car, just needs some extra's)

Why order from Towre for $400+++ when you can pre-order one from speedtech for $290

Sorry to hear that....sorry for not being to help out...if I took my car apart and mailed out that part to you... the birds would have been over... were you able to do a quick fix and continue racing... there's a good chance that a manufacturer will make that part in aluminum...
