It's a great beginner car that is very easy to drive and very durable. You spend ungodly amounts of money on hop-ups for it as well. At the end of the day, it's not one of the most competitive sedans that have ever been made, but it's a good first car.

I had the car for 2 years. I'll tell you... that thing took all the abuse a rookie/intermediate driver can give it. Sure it may flex... but on unprepared parking lot surfaces, it would benefit. The Pro 3 is fastest car i've had as well. The stock setup hooks up most everywhere too. Just make sure you space the battery a little from the belt. I had a new 2400 stickpack(well it was new back then) get torn by it rubbing the belt.

the pro 3 was a great car for me, it helped me win the novice pointscore against some good cars like the TB evo III.

I don't own a Pro3, so I have a question. How does the belt system work, since it is offset?

Angry Shock lenght for SD

What should the right shock length for the SD. I followed the menu and adjusted the shock at 60 mm both front and rear. The rear look ok but the front doesn't seems right. It almost seems the front shocks need to be set longer. Any suggestion?
