Default GS Vision Pro

Hi guys, wondering if anyone is running the new GS Vison Pro? The car looks pretty good, takes a little bit of hand fitting for some parts, overall it seems very similar to the Mugen, Trinity, Kyosho, and Serpent cars. Just wanted to see what you guys think about it.

this car has some quality issue. centax clutch is steel ball type which is heavy. designwise is good. I like the main chassis. awesome machine work and it is 4mm thick.

This is the lastest car I've owned after my Hyper 10, V1R, MTX2 and I like the car very much. Not much of any building issue, just take your time to assemble. It is almost 80% MTX2 design with V1R drive train & tank design follow by Serpent clickable shocks design as far as I've noticed. Basically, the best of all manufacturer's design combined into one.
This car also claimed to be the world most low CG touring, comes with Low CG engine mount, centex clutch, universals all round, aluminium wheel hub etc.... in the pro kit. In fact this car is the lightest among all the touring cars I've owned, 1.68kg with everything in.
I'll be racing this car next sunday and hope it don't let me down, will post any issue with the car after the race if there is any..... I hope not.

Hi guys, I had a question about the vision pro. To me it looks like this car has a pretty wide steering radius (not a lot of ackerman). I have never run a gas sedan before, and was wondering if anyone else's car is like this and do you really need a lot of ackerman in the steering? I have raced electric sedans for a long time where all of the cars I have had, had a lot of ackerman. Just trying to learn about the car before I run it! Thanks !

speed does it come with metal externally adjustable shock unit?

if so, does it have the same internal design as the serpent.

Hey guys, I was wondering what kind of pipes do you use? Is the mugen novarossi pipe a good choice or are there better choices out there? Coupler or one-piece pipes? Please let me know what you think. And about the question on the shocks, they are not externally adjustable like the serpent ones, just the piston is adjustable, just on the inside. Shocks work really well and are smooth, but take a little of patience to build. Thanks Again!

I think rear IS base on the MTX, The Diff looks very alike just a little different, but if you look at it more, it does seem like it's everything like the mtx kinda . The front look more like it's base on a V1r with Mtx diff and shock tower. The top deck looks like it's mix with v1r and the mtx. If you agree
