Cool, so the R3 will be released with regular CF? That's good news.

it won't be the regular R2 type carbon fiber..... it will be the new strong weave stuff that is the same as the R3 glitter one.....just minus the sparkly stuff

The R2 Xenon/PAL A-spec are very good kits just because the R3 is coming out doesn't mean that the R2 is not good to get still.... the Xenon and PAL are pretty much what a R3 comes out to minus the TC-3 style steering system

this is the "SPORTSMAN" class which is more popular than the Expert series .... because these are your every day joe's that can turn better laps with a 23T stock motor some times that the guys with modifieds..at Yatabe..... also this race is where you see a lot of new stuff....
-Dave
I know how turning fast laps with stock motors goes, at Toyota I ended up qualifying with a 18/4:18 with a stock motor, and 18/4:16 with a 12 turn
