This car is good for race, but have to get some area fixed and "reinforced" first.

As I had second thought, I bought a VOne RRR, thinking of trying out this well known Kyosho car and make a comparison. Anyone here have experience both cars and what is you finding? can share with me....? 1st impression between the 2 is GPX4 looks more rugged-built.
not a bad choice in getting either the GPX4 and the Kyosho RRR. Im running a GPX4S and had a head on collision with a fellow racer who owns a Kyosho RRR. Pretty tough the only thing that broke was 1 stand from the bumper plate (lower plate). Everything else is okay. As tested over the years Kyosho makes GREAT and DURABLE RC cars. IMO, theres simply no way of getting a comparison between the two without Kyosho being dominant. For a budget racer the GPX4 has quite the BANG for you buck but if you have the luxury to spend, then i think you should go for the RRR. Then again, it all boils down to the driver or the one who buys it...

Hi everyone

I have just recently bought the HoBao Hyper 8 Pro buggy and wow am i impressed with the quality of the kit. Is the GPX4 similar?

Also, HoBao addressed the issues with the front and rear belts being too tight? I also read there is two different Pro kits, does anyone know what version Rc-Mart sell in HK?

Look forward to hearing from you all soon

Hi,
I have raced both Hyper 7's and GPX-4 Pro and have been very impressed with the quality of the cars that Hobao produce.
