Hey guys we had a mix up at the factory and the Pro Kits are missing parts from the first batch. We will correct this issue quickly and complete the kits. Sorry for the hassle we apologize for the inconvenience.

Thanks,

Chris

I've searched up & down the web and still have a very basic question:

What are the exact differences between the RTR and the Pro Kit?

Pro kit, is a kit, doesn't have any electronics, has all the hop ups, and includes the MTCS traction control.

The Pro Kit has
*Brake Kit
*Alloy Forks
*Alloy MTCS Set
*Carbon Chassis
*V1 compound tires
*Clear Body set

Both bikes have the improved body posts (3) and the Y-spoke wheels. The RTR comes with the improved chassis block - the swingarm pivot location was changed to improve traction on power.

The Pro Kit was recalled and it will be available soon. We are waiting for some new parts to arrive so we can rekit them and ship them out.

What's also happened to the RTR model, spares and hop ups - which seem to be non-existent in the UK?

I've been waiting forever to get alloy forks and now they have seem to be pushed back to TBD along with the o-rings. I can't even rebuild my stock forks....ugh. Chris, do you have any guess when they will be available? Thanks,

I believe the GPV 2.0 was unveiled at the Nuremberg Toy Fair - which might explain things.
