I'm with you Pro3Racing.

They built the car with flex and then people complained....like they can see the flex when racing. Go figure.

I'm afraid I have to disagree with you there. The Xrpess Pro and Corally C4.1 that I used to run and now the Mission that I run now, need no hop ups out of the box, so I didn't add any. Not everyone is looking to add hop ups to their cars. But, then again, none of those come in at the low cost of $200 or less like the Pro3 does.

Really, I don't see what all the debate is about. Even if the Hara Pro3 has very little HPI stuff left on it, its still a Pro3. I mean come on, we have all seen some of the Pro3's that had HPI gear boxes and suspension arms and that was about it. But, thats no different than what people used to do with Yokomo YR-series cars back in the day. But people still called them Yokomo's.

I've never seen so many people who all like the same company, be so devided from one chassis to the next. Kinda weird.

Maybe you'll all agree on the next HPI offering.

>>ok...... maybe not all of them!!! but most .

>>im with you there i dont know what the debate is either
the pro3 will always be a pro3 no matter who's name is in front of it.

>> i have had every chassis there is for a pro 3 at one time or another and to say one is better than the other would bel hard to say . i think if the upper deck came out with the pro 3 you wouldnt hear as much crying but that is another subject.

Maybe you'll all agree on the next HPI offering.

>>there will always be someone unhappy.... if they(hpi) could make everyone happy then there in the wrong business.

Yeah, they would need to be in politics if they could pull that off.

Most of the people who saw the prototype pictures seemed pretty happy. Well at least those that didn't say it looked like some other companies' car.

I guess your right, you can't please everyone.

Yeah Darkseid, the Corally, Mission, and the Xpress Pro come pretty much loaded from the get go. So box stock for them is already optioned out. They provided the racer with pretty everything in the box from the beginning. You do have your Mission running well. Yeah, I was trying to see what the negativity was about and the people that were negative don't even respond. O' well.

Out of box....yes pro3 can outclasses standar Tamiya ta03.
But for compete with trf 414M, you had to spend 4 times more money, but why bother as long as you can afford......
