I don't subscribe for obvious reasons but what kind of rating do they give it? Not that I care what RCA says anyway.

Default New R3 Questions

I was just wondering when the R3 is going to be available here in the states. Also, is the chassis going to have the sparkles in it?

I dunno, steve just posted this in response to my same question in his speedtech forum:

"From what I understand, the R3 will come with the glitter chassis as standard equipment. The owner of Alex Racing understands that not everyone likes the glitter stuff, but he is willing to take a chance to be different than the rest of the manufactures.

Hi Guys,

That was what I was told last week when I contacted them. But I will contact them again to confirmt whether it is just the first 500 kits or is it for all production car kits.
