also I was only able to take the car for 2 laps soooo.. ..... The car was very balanced for what it was a Prototype .... I like the new TC-3 style better than the Yokomo wiper ... (better adjustment)

Talk with Steve at Speed Tech... He should be able ot pre-order them now.. and they are going to be the same price in Japan as the R2..... so that means that Speed Tech should sell them for about the same price too

Sounds like it's going to be good value.
Can't remember if you've said or not but how thick is the graphite? looks close to the R2's thickness, no 3mm machined down for extra stiffness.

One, your handle is so annoying so does that make you a l33t? I wanted at one time to reply to you but I gave up trying to type that name of yours.

Two, I've been noticing that you've had the R2 for a very long time and still have yet to even build the car BECAUSE YOU DON'T HAVE tool?

Third, if you would just build the damn car maybe you can really feel what the car is doing and PERHAPS, just maybe PERHAPS, you can find out if you want to go brushless or stick with the stock, or PAL, or MOD, or R3, alloy shaft holder, ti screw set, square stuff and whatever else you've been asking for like 3 months and have yet to even build the damn thing!



Dan



im waiting for the ti screw kit... n im just asking cause u guys said ill need a PAL drive if i get the brushless, n im currently thinkin bout brushless since there is less/no motor maintenance... n i havent built the car, yet since im in college not much time with the engineering schedule n plus the money so it aint my fault

Do you use ackerman adjustments that often?
Probably the one setup thing I still don't know it's effects on setup, I know why it's there but thats about it

Hows the painting going Dave?
