I talked to the auntie at Jet Hobby and she said it's an edition for HK only, not even for Asia...

But I think the kit still miss out the aluminium hex adaptor (Yeah, Ernest, you're right!!), aluminium shock bodies and the most important option: HB upperdeck... Then there'll be another $456...

she will be angry if she knows you call her auntie !

you are right, if add up all those things the car will become 2000 +

does it make the car lighter? its a "pro" car for crying out loud! they should include alloy threaed shocks!
the Xray includes nylon shocks too !! they report that the nylon shocks work better then the metal ones. and they are lighter.

is it metal gear?
The servo will fit onto any TC car. It is a little fatter than Futaba servos but only a little! It has plastic gears because it is only is mid-range servo.

Me-student: Nono, the Square part that replaced the diff. cover has been sold out in HK!!! I think it's too expensive as it costs over $200, just for 2 pieces of aluminium!!
Control Centre had imported the Ova pro3 rear diff. but it has also been sold out already! I think it should be better than HPI's but the price is... not cheap!!
Yeah, we no longer can follow the setup from Hara as he now uses both upper and lower graphite chasis... I also found that he's using a 4 degree caster block in JMRCA which is a prototype...

Manticore: Don't worry, I know she doesn't browse through this forum... By the way, I haven't said the word "auntie" for a long time, I always use the chinese word "Ah 'umbrella' "instead!!

Me-student: nono, I think it's enough option parts for my pro3. By the way, the latest modification of my pro3 is that I put 2 o-rings and a thin slim on top of the diaphragm so that the damper will bounce out once you press it in.
