Dtm: I see... So, what's the main difference between the first and 2nd generation?? I think you got one 1st generation and two 2nd generation... am I right?? I feel interested in SV10 coz of a Japanese RC VCD... The Kawada Team driver (I forgot how to spell his name) drove his SV10 in a small tight track with a very smooth pace. This gave me a deep impression...

Mars: I found that it's difficult to control 'steering' of a pro3 with 'throttle'... I mean when entering a tight corner, sometimes we can give the car a little more 'throttle' so that the rear of the car starts to skid a little bit and we can enter the corner more easier and faster... However, I found that it seems that it doesn't work to my pro3... if you give the car a little more throttle, it will not skid but go away the apex!!
So, I have to change to drive the car slow when enter a corner, steer and dashes out of the corner as fast as possible!!!
Any comments to me?

Mars: Yes, so, I'm now running the car with different set-ups and see what they affect the pro3.
Forgot to tell you that I 'secretly' went to Kai Tak this Monday... I found that On Tau was having fun with his Kx-one!
Friday, Kai Tak?

Thr first generation only has two vertical upper decks. The second general has the 2 vertical decks plus one more horizontal deck so it is a lot stiffer. The 1st gen came std with nice alloy gearboxes but the 2nd gen is an option (except for the lastest version of the kit). The hubs on the 2nd gen is pushed out further so the car is more stable. The damper plates have changed. The 2nd gen has a narrower chassis bottom plate.. this was an option with the first gen....... I can go on. Basically it is a very different car but with similar handling characteristics! I think I have gone on long enough!

The T1 is just as good on a tight track! Just depends how you set the car up!
