and I thought that I was the only one who had bad days at the track

Thumbs up R3 ..testing news

Hey guys on the K&K home page Kitoma has been doing more testing with the R3 and ... some of the differences that he has notices is that turn is much better and , cornering speed is up ...(a already fast cornering car is now faster ) just for starters

and now he's back with avengance

More corner speed I think he needs a challenge, get him over here and see how much corner speed he can get
Is that an Orion LCS transponder without it's case?
Looks like he's going to extremes to get the weight as low as possible, then he shoves a whole heap of lead weights on the center line Sure it's the best way to distribute weight but sheesh, I'd rather protect my electronics a bit more

I see he's also got an extra body post to support the shell around the front window, I wonder what the trade offs are, between extra high up weight and more ridgid shell shape If he really wants to support the shell and keep weight down, he should devise a way of including the support onto and arial mount/tube

Yea they had both the R2 and the R3 on a Scale next to each other at the Tokyo Hobby show and the R3 was in fact 29~30 grams lighter

Well, I know I gave my alloy parts a good testing out Saturday...clipping pipes and spinning KO out a couple of times... It won't be like that next week...plus I'm going to run in the 19 turn class instead of stock since the car feels really good.
