Sorry, no servo. In order not to regret at the end, I advised u to get the high speed servo if u are going to play electric which cost @$140.

That I can't really say. For me all car are the same. The important thing is that u have to master the car. Set the car until it suit ur own feel. Remember that u are the one who control the car. Not the car that control u. About the speed is depend on ur batt, motor, gear ratio and controller setting. Right now TAO4R are much more popular. But I still prefer my TB Evo(good acceleration) and my 2nd hand HPI pro3(smooth in cornering).

You got to be joking that pro3 is smooth in cornering. I think pro 3 is the worst that has even being build. Check the number of driver using por3. The best would only be NICK. But he like the driver but not the car.

Yes, I used to anti-HPI too since 7 yrs back. But after I'd tried Ozone car last 3weeks, I found that the car is good to play with and it's quite tough. After few days later I bought the car not one but two and I'm very happy with it.
About your Hyper 10, u must be joking. Unless u r racing with beginners.

Ozone: About the glitching, I still wondering why so sudden both of us had the same problem. My spur gear stripped, dog-bone always came-out after being knocked hard by the beginner(I think so) car. Yesterday is really not our day. We will try again next 2weeks.

Ozone: I dunno why last night you and ros so problematic... Not your night I guess.. I'm sure when I got my 04r i had much worst crashes, like suspension arms breaking and hinge pins bending, shock parts breaking etc but the steering linkage didn't have much problems. I only got my alum steering eh.... i think about december?

Ros: Uh, hope I wasn't the guy who whack you ah... me still blur.

HPI Pro 3, car with a bloody bad reputation. Ozone, ros, run the cars the next rcmc race and do it proud!

BTW guys, the person who qualified B3 in the last RCMC race was our dear Ozone here, and guess what?! He was using Top 3k unmatched cells with a 23T Kawada motor! I hate this guy on my tail even when I'm running mod @ yuan ching His high wind motors is more than a match for my 14x2
