been lazy for 2 days, free on the pit table today.
About the Steering Crank Assembly,as the photos show as below, play attention with the screw show in the 2,3 photo, do not over tight, make sure it's move free.
And the last photo which shown that I've add one 0.1 spacer in there prevent so much space.

Step to install the suspension, buy a pack of different size spacer will make all set up more easy, the plastic spacer I'll just keep for spare,some Anti-wear grease put on the pin and balls, and pay attention of the F/R.
if the suspension arms not move in smooth, just hit it lightly, just because the adapter not completely install.

Steering block and rear hub assembly
for those camber links holes, I'll screw in before put the alum. ball in , it's easy to put the alum' ball in with those pattern.
Also those set screws, I'll make it flat, feeling it can lock the pin tighter.
Play attention on L/R C-hub.

Not too sure about the quality of the bulkheads and motor mount, they don't look very clean.

Are the body posts on the same position as the R1?

Have the plastics impoved?

Does it share many parts with the R1?

Where has it in stock?
my fd's R2 been run on track last few days, his R2 still can use R1 body.

Yeah it's weird that the anodize doesn't match. I think they must struggle a little with their supply chain. They are basically a hop-up company trying to put together full car kits. There was some weirdness like this on the S2 also. Shocks/springs that didn't match the short shock towers was a good example. But they still give us cars with a lot of performance for a low price, so good times...

Upper arm and steering rod assembly, the ball joint of R2 have much improved from R1/S2, it's much better. Fit with the balls and move smoothly.
First drill the hole for those ball joint.
then use the tool which come with the box and a 4mm wrench, set-up tjose tumbuckle much easier with those tools.
And the steering which connect the servo to the steering unit, need to cut 4mm of the ball joint.

Sway bar assembly, come with the box with one swaybar with Red mark and one with White mark, Red one is 1.4mm,white one is 1.2mm. 1.4 for Front and 1.2 for rear. Also need to drill the plastic ball cap, and don't over tight that screw.

Shocks assembly, R2 shocks were different with R1,it's shorter and thicker.
the springs which come in the box were 4 027 springs, according form the list in the manual, 027 is the middle one, form softest 025-hardest 030 on Spec-r spring set.
install the ball from the side without the circle mark is more fit.
Use the tools come in the box, can adjust the rebound when put the shock top on.
Play attention on the length of 4 shocks, should be all the same.

Steering servo assembly and installation, used to use the servo washer to put the servo on, it's protect the ear of the servo, not easy to broke when screw a little bit tight.
And, use 2mm spacer to push the servo a bit front-er, make it more room or receiver and ESC, also try to assembly the servo as close as to the top of the servo mount.
Wish can run it on track on Wednesday, will put the ESC and receiver on tomorrow.

Have some run on track last week, the R2 feel have more steering, especially in the middle of the corner, and stable with corner exit when throttle on.
