But during my last weekend race, I've decided to drive the older Yokomo instead of the SP, amanzingly, I was doing well again, the old car definitely have better acceleration and attack tight corners without much fault. Everyone is claiming that how good is the SP, but I'm totally disappointed, and decided to take out all the equipment from the car and not to race it again. But, I'll still be getting the Yokomo-SP 2 if there is any??)

Happy New Year To All Of You, Keep Driving Fast (only with your R/C car!)
Mika: can you describe more on your setup and surface you run? also what problem are you having? Let see if I can be of any help

Did you buy for front and back? I use the inner position on the front (no luck on the outer position!) so I only have for the back! Also, because I run a double rear shock mount I don't need to offset the top of the shocks...... the double mount is extremely stiff compared to the standard single rear shock plate, you should try it!

This is the first funny thing I see on 2002 :

"ive just got the Pro3 Hong Kong edition from Control Centre, and the car handles near perfect out of the box. I race on carpet, and found alot more speed than my Pro2, i dont think the slight flex (using graphite chassis but no upper deck) is that much of a deal. It won me the race yesterday, so i cant really expect more.

When i say out of the box, i dont mean springs and gears though."

It is quoted from pro3 forum.

I thought about (and may still) getting this head. It's not the 'right' colour but I still think better than purple!

The brake disc looks a lot like the one that International is selling for $40!!!!
