looks kinda Team Magic, Black magic G4 for me.
The front brace and steering servo position. But at the back, really like the MTX3, though.

=MTX3+G4

i dont understand why they put the middle belt back to the old place
That was the design a long time ago (Z10 era), and personally I do not like it much

other things look nice though

You know it must suck to have to copy everyone elses designs. What happened to designing car with your ideas? I know we havent hit the limit on car designs. Geez Ofna come on!

Many cars have their pro version the the same basic layout as their rtr version. In fact, all of the tawiwanese cars produced within the last few years (on road) that i am aware of follow this trend.

I would not be surprised if the pro version is a hopped up version of the rtr.
but again, anything can happen!
