Been there done that, Tamiya makes beautiful, functioning TC's. I just got tired of the constant updates, new versions put out every 6 months, high part prices, lack of support. The Pro4 Hara was hard for me to pass on with an average street price of $349 with all the sought after hop-ups, you cant touch it. It handles well right out of the box with stock set-up, which is slightly different than the original 04 debut. Parts, and aftermarket are much stronger for the hpi cars than Tamiya's, maybe it has something to do with the turnover of the cars. It Just seems that the companies like Yokomo, Tamiya, Xray Corally have hard parts support since a new car comes out every year. Its almost like the LHS wont order an abundance of parts fearing they will get stuck with them when the new rides come out. Associated, losi, Hpi, even schumacher cars have better self life, and any hobby shop in business today carries parts for these cars.

I say go with the tamiya. sure it is a tad bit heavier but at least you wont have to add weight if you track has a minimum Weight has never been a problem. it is not much. Just add the titanium screw for 38.00 and you will be at the pro 4 weight. as far as i am concerned........................

Tamiya. parts are for people who hit walls all the time...so if you're one of them, get the pro4. Then again, I hit walls all the time, jump corner dots, do rolls, two wheel drifts, etc... havent broken a part in my evo3 since I bought it two years ago. Last ROAR race I went to I had to add 5 grams to be legal weight(i added the handout transponder ) Last club race I lapped a bunch of FK05's with good drivers too.

Ditto Pookat....

The Pro4 FEELS very quick. Very sharp with the steering response. The Evo feels a little more dull. The Evo is probaby easier to drive for a beginner, it feels more sluggish. (Not in a bad way mind you)...

Like most of the others have said, go for local parts support! Nothing worse than having to wait weeks for mail order parts to arrive when you have a broken car.
