MRJudd thanks for the offer and i will take you up on it eventually. I work away on a 2-2 roster so when i am at home i am going to try to come up and at least have a look on a Friday night( wouldn't mind organising it with you to have a look at your R1.) It wont be this Friday as i am still away but maybe next Friday or the one after. As i live on the South side I will probably mainly race at Bayside as i only live 2 mins from the track and maybe Logan but hopefully on occasions I hope to get up to Brendale as well.
The racing at Brendale is every other Friday njight, there are other meets but I don't get to them. I have the Standard R1 (and 2 S1's, 1 that is used for parts and the other that is being setup for indoor carpet at Trackside) the R1 has a couple of upgrades including the alloy fan mount, center servo rack amd alloy belt tensioner. Also has Tamiya low friction ball cups and Titanium turnbuckles (although I haven't replaced them all yet).
It is a great idea to get to as many tracks as possible as this will improve your driving. I race at brendale as it is only 5 min away from my place. I haven't been to the southside tracks yet but have been north to Landsborough.
Slowguysam, you do need a couple of other bits to get the sway bars attached. they are
SPR-R1A123 R1 Rod Stopper
SPR-R1H716 R1 Sway Bar Set
SPR-R1B802 Set Screw M3x4
I think they are all you need you might need some additional
SPR-R1A102 R1 Alu, Ball Studs 5mm and
a few more ball cups.
