I'm hoping for something in the $350 range. Considering the Sworkz is $350 and the B44.3 $340 with tower codes...

true. Tower codes change the market. If tower carried the HP cars, they would fly off the shelves with the coupon codes, lol

Yeah, I know. But when it comes to Amain vs Tower. Tower crushes them with codes. Most smaller shops dont do codes.

You can run the motor in the front right or rear left using a shorty.

One cool think with the HobbyPro USA/Pr Racing vehicles is that; if they can share a part they will. So if you have other cars by them it can minimize the amount of spares you need. I'm almost positive there will be some on the sb401 like the rear hubs that will work on all their 1/10 cars, and looking at pictures the shocks might be the same as well.

The same can also be said for just about every other Mfg. that has more than one car or truck of the same chassis generation. Some cases a difference in a generation of chassis' can not work out, and other times it still will. As far as the sharing of parts between the cars and trucks produced by a Mfg. It's a logical way of going about it.

Ok let me qualify my statement in that more parts are interchangeable than other brands I'm familiar with. For example the stadium truck used probably 90% same parts as the 2wd buggy, and of those difference less on the wear parts.

I totally get what you were saying,
My point was/is that shouldn't be the single biggest selling point for PR car/trucks, as it has pretty much become the norm and expected in the market place when the sharing of parts between cars/trucks is there (which currently I don't think there are too many cases where parts aren't shared, save the ST-RR Evo and Mp9 series). Part of why, if I run more than one car or truck, I'll usually go with the same Mfg. if parts cross over, but usually isn't my single reason for doing so.

If I were a Mfg. or Designer, I'd totally be trying to use as many of the same parts between cars and trucks produced by a given Mfg. because to me it makes the most logical sense to do. Saves on time and money at their end, and in turn does help the end user save a little bit at their end. Now if you have one car or truck that is just the cats meow and another car or truck from the same Mfg. that shares a lot or near all the same parts between them and that car or truck is a complete turd, then the sharing of parts does little to help, other than save you a little coin.

Looking at more pictures i noticed that the bell crack post arent tied into the top deck or front bulkhead. I personally dont like that and would mostly likely would drill holes in the top deck run longer screws to secure the the bell cranck post.
