The GPX4 Pro is OFNA/Hobao's flagship 1/10th nitro sedan. I was talking with a friend who races the CD3 Pro sedan and he mentioned that OFNA will be dropping it as their main sedan. I'm not certain if that means they'll discontinue the CD3 or not, but rather market it like the LD3, try to break even on their investment. I believe OFNA/Hobao is very confident of the GPX4 Pro's ability to succeed as a competitor in the highly contested 1/10th Pro sedan class. Unlike the CD3, the GPX4 has been successful and competitive in it's class, just see what Team driver, Jeff Lin, has done the past season. OFNA/Hobao realizes the belt driven design chassis is at this moment, performing better than the shaft driven design in high competition. As previously mentioned, because of the CD3's failure to compete with the high end competition, it could explain OFNA's current lack of marketing on the GPX4 Pro. But Hobao has already began market the GPX4 Pro as their number one nitro sedan. I've sent OFNA e-mail asking why, for the lack of info and tech support, and the only answer I'm getting is "Thank you for your support, we will have more info and tech support real soon". I can only guess, it is what it is?!!
Just my two cents
