The sad thing is that with the sport 2 still being sold HPI's best racecar currently doesn't even carry the "PRO" badging.....

Damn, see what you peple have done I am getting all nostalgic about my Pro 2....... If I could only find one NIB at a reasonable price.......

Hehe... I ran my Sport2 for 2 years... then in january, I got a Pro2 NIB for less than half price.... It is soooo sweeet ! Just won my first real race.... So it's easy to believe HPI will do a good job on the Pro4.

They didn't do a good job on the Pro3

I think every company puts out things that they later regret. The Pro 3 was not a great release and I know HPI wants to get this one more to the racers liking. But HPI came out with one of the first sedans ever and I think they have some very capable people calling the shots. I know the XXX-s is much better than the xx-4 with short arms (street weapon). THe SW was never a perfect car and Losi looked at ways to improve and they sure did. Give HPI one flub and if it happens again then worry...lol

as I said before they should concentrate on the pro4, not on sth a very few people will buy
it is a bashing car but you have to be able to afford 8 cells batts and perhaps a BL if u want to make that car interesting, with a normal equiment it will just be slower than a 1/10 .

I think it's hard to figure out what HPI stands for now a days... From my point of view, their product line is inconsistent.... At least compared to earlier... Maybe their success with the Original RS4, the RS4 Pro and Pro2 has been overhelming.... It's hard to follow up....
