I thought all this would have been left behind, with the advent of factory team cars, Kinwald editions, Xray etc.

It surely can not cost manufacturers much more to put in Graphite parts, Thredaed shocks etc. i bet that 99% of people who actually race these cars would be willing to shed a few extra bucks for a complete car.
You don't need most of the hop ups that are out for the XXX-S. We have racers at our track (Speedworld) that run the car bone stock and can keep up with these so called fully hopped up cars. Just because the parts are out for us regular racer's to buy doesn't mean that it's needed to win. The only car that this holds true to is the Pro 3. Don't confuse "wants" with "needs"

These are all very valid points about Hara running running so much aftermarket stuff it's funny. No sponsor wants you to run to far out of the box. But maybe HPI doesn't know that all of you are pissed off about it. I would suggest telling HPI how you feel as well as complaining about it here.

In my opinion i think that HPI really don't care as long as the PRO3 is selling well, and as long as they're winning major competitions with the BIG HPI, and PRO3 sticker on the side of Hara's body shell.
