Is HPI's orange the same color as Xray's orange? Or are they different shades?

Not out of the woods yet. Hpi/hb is notorious for bringing out kits with minimal parts support. Hope they got it right this time around.

Good luck with that. HPI will be lucky to get the standard one rolled out without any issues. But you could always buy a second kit to get a spare c hub.

C hubs? I didn't think there was a shortage of C hubs. Both Tower and Amain have them in stock....

There was about a month ago. Everyone was out of c-hubs, even the shops in China, I looked for about 3 weeks. They started filtering in a couple weeks ago

When someone gets one of these Pro 5 kits, would you post the differences that are supposed to make this car better than the TCXX with the new chassis and short shocks? Especially what parts are interchangeable with the TCXX (not necessarily the same but the parts will fit e.g., the TCXX Front and rear lower Arms are different than the Pro4 arms but they are interchangeable).

If they are using the same diff. Then the shock towers should be interchangable
