Neh I mostly race in the stock 23t motor class.

It would be quite a long time before I enter the modified class.

I do realise that the belt driven cars are well suited for modified motors.

But I would like to try a shafter this time.

Why for the stock class, using the Pro 4 is better than the Yokomo SD???

I had a PRO 4....Great car, hands down.....but I am in US, racing indoor carpet and outdoor as well. I have to say, the PRO 4 are better running outdoor, rubber or foams, stock, 19T or MOD are just as good...

I used the PRO 4 with 8T V2 running outdoor foams and rubber....car was just great. And the main reason I pick Pro 4......cause I am in US, getting HPI parts from Tower or any local hobby shop is just as easy as getting AE parts.

However, getting YOKOMO parts here....almost impossilbe, or at least, I cannot just go to the shop and pick up, always need to rely on mail order and internet, which I am not prefer.

The best deal...buy a new one, and look for a used one ($150-200 tops) with options for parts..........a lot of ppl running these car on carpet all the time, so their Pro 4 are very new and not damage, just need to spot one.

Yea I noe there are a few good deals from ebay.

But how can I get them???

I don't even have a credit card. Both my parents don't use credit cards.

Its so difficult to find a second hand one. Btw how much would it cost to ship a car from the USA to Malaysia??? Just a guess would help though!!!

I've owned and raced both, and I would take the Pro 4 over the SD. Mainly because the Pro 4 comes with enough additional tuning options(C-hubs, suspension blocks, etc...) right in the box, that it is simply a better value.

I had very little breakage with either car, so I'd rate them about the same there. The Pro 4 seemed to have an edge in handling for me, but thats objective.

Really the only downside to the Pro 4 was that (when I got it) it had horrible parts support issues. But thats not an issue now that the car has been out for so long.

If I wasn't so happy with my TA05, then I would definitely be driving a Pro 4.

Not so sure bout the Academy Str though but if can lets keep this thread about the Yokomo SD and the Hpi Pro4.

Wow can't believe Eng Tat is actually a Malaysian.
