I dont believe in the new school hyper drive chassis thing.

<flame shields on>

Most of the "new school cars" are just refinements: Mission and XXX-s with an optimized belt drive. XRay with exotic materials and very nice details. TB Evo III are more or less an XRay with a shaft, but without all those nice little details, especially adjustment posibillities.

At my opinion, the Pro3 was closest to be a new school car in the last 3 years.

Basically, what matters are a well kept car, which dont brake down every now and then. It should also have good adjustability options and an effective drivetrain.

What are nice to have, are easy access to adjustment, easy maintenance and good looking.

Depending on the track and driving style, one-ways might be usefull. The same goes for a more or less flexing chassis.

The Pro2 (with graphite diff hubs) offers more of the basic than several of the newer chassis, like XXX-s or TB Evo III. About the nice-to-haves, the Pro2 are not perfect, but quite reasonably. And since I'm a carpet driver, the graphite chassis are a must and so are one-way units. And I add in graphite diff hubs. Thats it. The fun and the race can begin.

I didnt attend to offend anyone, I just think that too many people call new cars "Revolutionary", instead of "Evolutionary".

Dont get me wrong: I would love to get an XRay or a Mission and get all the option parts - if I got the money. Then again: It would only satisfy my taste for quality. A Pro2 give me a lot of pleasure in the assembly fase (where I am now) and a lot of pleasure at the club and at race meetings. And I do believe that I can beat many of those "new school cars" - which will be a much bigger pleasure, than winning with the best hi-tech gear avaible.

Cole Trickle: i agree, the pro2 is still very much competitive. much of the tourers out there share the same basic design. take the case of the pro2, 414, corally and xray. the same with tc3, evo1-3, barracuda, and pro4.

design wise, i would say that the pro3 and the xxx-s are true "revolutions".

It was the last car in my country. The price was 50% of normal price. I'll suggest you try and contact some of the earlier posts, where people have seen virgin Pro2's.

Cant the belts be tensioned enough? New belts dont cost that much.

I cut a little of my rear diff, due to the rubbing. And put a little shim between the bulkhead and the ball bearing.

Never heard of / experienced the cutting arms issue before.

Maybe a couple of joints can reduce your front wobble issue.
