As for aluminum suspension pieces, I believe we have the front C-hubs and the rear hub carriers coming. These are made by Xenon Racing, a close partner of Alex Racing in Japan. I'll be trying out the rear hub carrier this Tuesday at SoCal and Redbull will be trying out the front C-hub when he gets a chance

I'll keep you guys posted on the progress of this next shipment.

Steve Wang

Steve how do they look..?? Are they similar to the Square ones or are they like the new PAL/EXCEL ones??


Let me know if you can

-Dave

A translated manual would be nice but it's not too difficult to build the kit, aslong as you've built a kit before. Aned also check the suppliment and these threads have some good tips too, hopefully Steve will add a couple of things mentioned here to the sheets, such as o-ring order for the shocks. I rebuilt my shocks so many times from getting it wrong that I could probably do it with my eyes closed now

Getting ready for race night tomorrow Hopefully the car will be as easy to drive as last week and I can then set it up a little faster.

Steve you mentioned drilling out larger holes in the shock pistons, I'm already using 35weight oil, would you bother with the hole if using a light weight oil?

Square Motor/Shaft Mount...

Does anybody know if the motor/shaft mount made by Square is comparable to the PAL unit? I'm wondering about which to get down the road. Although I'll probablly will get the PAL when SpeedTech gets them in.

The Square Motor/Shaft mount System..."only" works with the R1 Barracuda.. It wont work with the R2 since Alex Racing..compleatly revamped the Chassis on the R2...basicaly the R2's motor mount is about 5mm further forward.. ... So we are at the hands of PAL/EXCEL for the Motor/Shaft mounts for the R2
