Hey Vic,
Get something that is easy to get parts and support for. If you want to run an RTR car, get the Team Magic G4S RTR, which can easily be upgraded to full race spec. Good Luck. and have fun.

I ran the Vision Pro a few years ago when it was released and it was pretty good

thanks for your reply. My questions are:

1. Can I adjust the chassis height ? max how many mm ?

2. Is the belt easily broken ? quality ?

3. Is it hard to replace the belt ?

Thank you,

Regards,
vic

The biggest problem i have found with the GS vision is the one way bearing. I have gone through 4 of them in 6 months at $21 a time + steering servos dont last. the 15 motor is ok.

It's an RTR kit, what do you expect? Find out if there is a local GS dealer around you otherwise it would be one frustration after a frustration.

Isnt the vision discontinued product of GS?

Thumbs up GS car set-up

Vic,

The car is pretty sturdy. I still have a Vision Pro that has no engine or electronics. I have moved to the G4S. If you ask Garan Hagobian, he may have a good set-up for the car. He used to work for GS and was very helpful. I gave my set-up book to someone after giving him one of my Vision Pro's. Garan is a nice guy and may be able to help you out. Don't tighten the side belt too much or the car will have problems with gear change. Good luck with your car.

Mark
