Mars: Thanks for your concern. My car has poor acceleration and under-steer in tight corners and that is where I've lost a lot of time. No doubt that the SP is a very stable car but refuse to attack tight corners. I've tried the 3deg. caster but it created new problems at high speed corners.
We normally race on a tight & medium grip carpark. Andy Lam previously told me to "pull and lift the rear gearbox forward" with the long upper tie-rod, but I still try to figure how to do it. Others also told me that I've to do modification to the rear gearbox to improve stability in tight corners? I was also told that the SP MUST use the team Suzuzi 'white' front one-way and ball diff pulley with the new belts to improve acceleration and efficiency??

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

It is quoted from pro3 forum.
Because it is from CC.

The brake disc looks a lot like the one that International is selling for $40!!!!
well, you can try the $40 one ! the braking disc shown on the pic is of very high quality! even better then the kawahara disc.
When i replaced the stock disc last night, I found that the adaptor holes on the stock disc has already been elonged badly even I havent applied much brake before.

Really want to see the real thing running on the track.

I hope I did buy my Pro3 from CC. It seems that the Pro3 that I bought from uncle Chan cannot perform as good as the one from CC.

Or, I have to switch from Pro2 to Pro3 in order to achieve this "GOOD" result ? anyone can help ?

quote from RCCA..."but the dyno shows a staggering jump in power from 196 watts to 230.2 watts. For you math-impaired folks, thatís a 34.2W jump, or a 16.5 percent increase in power. There were also gains in torque and efficiency; the big brushes work. "

I think the RC car manufactorer soon will be bundling WC fingers with their cars !
