So I have gone back to the OLD` faithful....... R1 shock towers up front

or have they changed their minds on making a kit?

would mean doing a colour change for the rest of the kit if you want something other than the normal colours too hmm I like gold

Hermi`

the EXCEL kit will Cost 58000 Yen...!! and that will be a complete car....

Now on the other hand the Xenon Kit will be a a conversion and will cost much less than that....

And correct me if im wrong i feel that my TB EVO III is smoother than my Cuda is there any way i can make it as smooth as my TB any suggestions ??
Your welcome...
now the Cuda wont feel as smooth as the EVOIII due to the fact that it has a larger pitch gear...but it can be made just as quiet as the EVOIII if you look a my shimming instructions on the Barracuda thread

I'm interested in them, I'm going to convert to the web edition chassis on my regular R2 when PAL releases it.. I would like the FLAP towers, if they have updated to a higher quality CF.

Are the R1 towers beefier than the R2?

the rear Flap shock tower is fine..but I still like the Alex one...

as far as the front FLAP shock tower... ...NO COMMENT But the R2`s one is a little stronger at the ends..

and the R1`s is much more Beefy ...so I prefer to use it...also most of the Alex Drivers use the R1 tower as well

Cool, I might switch to the R1 tower over the FLAP ones, do they have the same mounting holes?
