I've given up on the Pro 4....can't bring myself round to the purple.....maybe I'll buy it in one of my "weaker moments"! However, just ordered a BMI chassis for the TC3 and Xray...... should be GOOD!!!

because you have the sequence wrong. you need to see it and buy it instead !! FORUM cannot tell you which car is good as most of the people seems working for that particular brand !

It's definately not a downgrade, but it is cheaper to make, and cheaper to buy.

well see, i dont have a job and i cant support myself without the help from my parents..so i dont have a lotta choices and money to go buy every single RC car their are and try all of them! so thats why i have to rely on review and other peoples comments! besides..why did you think i asked you guys instead of those crack heads else where?

haha..true true!!
i know that yok is gonna come out with a tube chassis..but then...the actual car wasnt what i expected..it looked way too much like the TC3...of course theres a significant difference, still wasnt entirely what i had in mind!

but knowing is from yok..its gotta live up to its word!
