Very true. You think you could pull strings at PAL and get them to use the CNC program they have to do it?

just take the machineing costs and multiply that times 3 and you will have the standard price to get work done in Japan.!! and I know the people a PAL quite well...but not that well

ver nice... looks like I can use it on my Web.

I also notice on the rear that the arm mounts are mounted upside down...how does that effect the handling.. ?
only I could think of is it may have spacers underneith to compensate for the height change and makes adjusting toe-in alot easier...I may have to try this out...

I may be wrong on this, but are those center shaft mounts in the pic off of the R1?

The reason for mounting the pivot balls upside down is mainly the ease of adjustment, you can see the notch in the pivot ball at all times.
