About time Hara started using decent radio.
But he races for or uses equipment from whomever pays the most so I wouldn't necessarily buy what he uses. I'm still interested in what type of Futaba radio he uses and if he uses the 2.4 GHz option. In spite of what I just said, he usually uses good equipment, so it might be worth buying.

Well, apart from the "Hara Effect", the 3PK does have the most (or too many ) features anyways.....

It had something to do with more features for 1/8th off road..and most likely more money,But with pro drivers it should be all about getting paid.I dont think Hara's going to be having any radio problems.Futaba makes a good radio.

bro, KOPROPO is the best radio out in the market. Why do you think he ran the radio for so long . It's the best and no glitches. He will be back.

Ko is the best radio for EP cars....
I have been using a 3PK for about two years now,and just switched to a Helios.
I am very satisfied,Helios is better than 3PK, but only if you are racing EP cars.
The past two years I was also racing gas powered cars and that's where 3PK is better.So, if Hara is about to race 1/8 off road,3PK would definatelly be his choice...

I've been using the Ko Propo to run 1/8th Monster truck since it was released. It's always been awesome for me.

What makes the Futaba better for gas duty?

I could not answer that.. I own both radios and for me one is no better than the other.
