i have a pro 3 and it is working fine, its fast it handles well and it is hard to break it(which is a good thing). i saw a guy using one in mod and it flys. its a great car and worth getting.

I have an Atsushi Hara edition Pro 3 for sale, if you don't know what that is, it's a stacked Pro 3 with everything you could ever want for racing.

Pro 3's stock out of the box, are well, horrible for racing. The Atsushi Hara edition Pro 3 is really the only good version of the Pro 3 for racing.

Check this out: Atsushi Hara edition Pro 3 - FOR SALE!

Default Trouble with my beloved Pro 3

I seem to be dumb about this...After servicing my car, it seems to have a problem that I tried to solve without success...
The car will oversteer when I turn left but good when I turn right..

All setting is good before I service the car.. I only clean the bearings, rebuild the shock and the diff.. diff are not too tight and not too loose...

Can anyone help me??
