P965LH - You need parts! I got a pro3 and some parts just collecting dust! PM and lets talk!

I was practicing my pro3 sunday, to check out the setup and was reminded of how easy it is toget around the track, I have a rather agressive setup in it and it was fun, point and shoot!! I finally got my jrxs to drive as well as my 3. The jrxs is a lot more adjustable but I still like my pro3. A friend was driving it during the race and clicpped a pipe and broke one of my carbon arms. Tried to find those Lately? Oh well I'll put the plastic ones on and keep going until I find some. later

I don`t know how many times I`ll have to say this:
Nagengast Hobbies has Pro 3 Suspension Arms.....I think they`re Graphite.

Give them a call.....Ask for Ed.

Default Nagengast, the hobbyists' hobby store

Nagengast, the hobbyists' hobby store. I am resurrecting my Pro 3.5 (it is that because it looks like the Losi, just not ugly like the JRX-S) and look forward to buying some spares. So, for those of you that run this car faithfully, buy the parts from Ed while you can.

Default Hey Guy, when you laying down the track?

Hey Guy, when are you laying down the track? What classes will you have? I know the 3.5 in my Pro 4 will be way too much car, so I am hooking up the Pro 3 to probably run with a 13.5 or 5800 (Novak). Let me know.

Default Hey Losi nut

Hey Losi Nut, does the JRXS-R drive anything like the Pro 3? I really stirred the hornets nest in the Losi thread by saying its nothing but a hyped resurrected Pro 3....

bx, I'd have to say the jrxs is a smoother car to drive, providing,(like everything else) you get a good setup under it. It took me a while to get the right one under both cars. I have Tamiya TRF shocks on the 3, and carbon chassis and upper braces. That all helped a lot, but it still lacks the adjustability of the losi. I have 2 pro3's one for my 7 year old daughter, and right now a friend drives mine while I do the losi.

Default As you've probably read

I am resurrecting my Pro 3. It's actually a Pro 3.5 because it has all of the Hot Bodies/HPI hop-ups. Graphite graphite graphite and plenty of purple. I have a guy that fabricates parts and I will have the diffs done in aluminum (he made sets for my Pro 4, oh my God!) It will be an asphalt car and I am looking to crush dudes with an old car (it's like 7 years old).

The local hotshoe drove my daughter's 3 one sunday, tq'd with 25 laps, I eeked out 22 with my 3. So I'd say in most cases, given a decent setup and a good driver, you could show most of them some tail lites and that was with the stock chassis, the flexy flyer

Hey HPI bring back the PRO3, box stock it was a piece of junk, but add some goodies and this thing kicked butt. Its still one of my favorite touring cars! Im a Losi guy, but I can honestly say the PRO3 is better than the JRXS anyday.

This was my Pro3, until I sold it on E-bay, Im still pissed I sold it, but parts were getting hard to find

Was that a Hara edition? It looks like a lot of one off parts. Possibly made of unobtanium

Hey bxpitbull; I don`t have a Spot worked-out for a R.C. Car Track yet. But; I was thinking about trying a 1 Day Shot at the P.S. 212 School Yard(Brooklyn.....Bay 50th - Harway). It`s a good area for something like R.C. Cars. . . . .But it`s FAR from My House.....it`s near Coney Island. . . . .and It`s NOT My Area.

I need to find a spot that`s closer to home. I have time.

Take Care

Default Coney Island?

Those dudes out there are retarded. I used to kick it with this chick on surf avenue, it was like dodge city. Now, whenever you get it poppin, keep a brother informed.
