Default Is this the very last virgin Pro2?

I've just ordered an HPI RS4 Pro2. Brand new, not assembled and right from the LHS.

I was wondering if I'm getting the very last Pro2?

There are at least a Dozen LHS in Japan Tokyo area that have these just sitting on the shelfs collecting lots of dust

Wink Sad - I like to be different !

However, I only got to pay half the price, so I'm happy anyway. Especially since I dont need anything hyper, I just need a good performing car, which will serve me well. It's about having fun at the race track...

Well, it's probably needless to say that I'm happy with my Sport2. Beating Pro3's, TC3's.... However, it's quite warn by know and it's too expensive to repair it. So when I got this offering, there's no doubt. Hopefully, it arrive tomorrow...

WOW wouldn't that mean that there's something wrong with the PRo 3? Well if it was up to me i would also choose the Pro 2 over the Pro 3

i still run a pro 2
After 5 years its still stock standered and i have no spears, but have never brocken anything
the car is just 1-2 laps of the TQ at my track and is up against lots of xray's, losi's, corally's and tc3
each night i finish in the middle of the field and sometimes low A's
so the car isnt that bad but the rear diff is cutting the bilkhead, the front wobbles the belts are stretched and the arms r being cut by the wheels
maybe some second hand option parts are in order
