OK

here are a few things to keep in mind..

the R2 and the R3 are pretty much similar

the steering system is different
the Bulkheads are the same (just you don't need the 5mm spacers now)
and the Drive system is included with the car

so pretty much the R3 is the same as a PAL or Xenon R2 as far as chassis balance and drive system

some things to note before giving up on the R2

so is it better to dish out 150 for xenon conversion or 300 for a whole new chassis?

Pretty much.... since there are a few companies that will more than likely make the TC style steering rack conversion later down the line

and after you have the PAL or Xenon chassis it's pretty much the same thing ...and a Bonus with the Xenon or the Pal chassis is that you can change the spur gear faster

I've driven the Xenon car, and didn't notice much difference from stock, I just figure I can recover the cash now, and have the newest car avalible when it is avalible. I do have a very descent offer on my WS

I think Randman has serious issues

If you don't want that Web/A spec send it over here I'm sure I could find a use for it and it would actualy get built and raced

Thats if I can get a new speedo sorted soon won't even have one for my blue Cuda after Monday time to hook up a servo to a switch
