Of course, but I dont see you point. Every consumer product on earth is in constant developent. From R/C cars to Cameras and TV's. Nothing is ever good enough and new/better products will always be around the corner.

Nope, Hara won the Worlds in 2000 for Yokomo wit an MR-4TC World's Kit. After that is was Surikarn with a 414X, Marc with a 415MS and Andy More with a Cyclone. No shaft car has ever won a Worlds.

It isnt a matter of you seeing my point, your statement solidifies my debate with someone else.

I stand corrected about Hara winning the worlds. But, straight from HPI's website:


Here are some of the top races the Pro 4 has won:
2005 DHI Cup (Hara 1st place over world champion)
2004 ROAR Paved On-Road Electric Nationals (Hara 1st place)
2004 British National Champion (Andy Moore)
2004 Swiss Nationals (Jean-Marc Betticher 1st place, top 3 winners were driving the Pro 4)
2004 IFMAR ISTC & 1/12th On Road Worlds Warm Up (Hara TQ, 1st Place)
2004 DHI Cup (Hara TQ, 1st Place, Fastest Lap)

Adrian, you might be well versed and smart and all that, but you arent THAT smart.

Marcos, whats happening? I'm about to jump into the Cyclone fray. Will be running the 3.5 with Li-Po (of course). Running with nitros (electric in nyc is like a happy turkey on thanksgiving), the track is rather large with fairly open turns and wide sweepers. Give me a good gear ratio that'll let the car take advantage of the torque, keeping me in the powerband as I enter a turn at say 3/4 throttle.....

Edit - Adrian beat me too it...

Just too add-in... If Hara had felt the Cyclone wasn't as fast or faster than the the Pro4... do you really think that he would have wanted it developed? And do you really think he would run a car that was forced on him that he knew was slower? Nope, me neither, he would of a) run the old car, b) jumped ship...

I would never admit to being THAT smart, but then then most can not grasp that concept. Huh?

Um, slim, he made the point and it was vaild. Chiming in at this point is like jumping into a fight after the puglists have already been seperated. Malingerer.
