The R 2 does have some flex but it's by no means a Pro 3 The Xenon and A-Spec chassis are 3mm so they have less flex than a stock R2. The A-Spec is practicly the same as the Xenon apart from its got the cells on the opposite side and it has two added bits on the rear section of the top deck that go out to two posts that go down to the main chassis to act as stiffeners. EAmotorsports is not a chassis it's a guy KO races with

I'm running the xenon conversion. I am running on carpet, 100wt oil, #2 pistons front and back. Yokomo silver(chrome) springs in the rear, yoke grey in the front, 5mm droop all around, 1 degree negitive camber in teh rear, negitive 2 in the front, no sway bars, yet, purple rear foams and plaid in the front. no one way in the car anymore and this is all can remember off teh top of my head. I'll try and make a new setup sheet and post it. Hope this helps a little

I don't know, you will have to ask Steve on that one. They were a limited edition. I like my xenon but never drove the speedway/pal a spec

hmmm...I would say more forgiving, I guess. It just handles well and has a lot of corner speed. More than my belt yokomo

Nice looking carpet, good sized track too wish we had time to lay a carpet for our track, with the lack of help we often get though it would take too much time I''ll have to visit the US some time, would love to go to Japan too but I hear the cost of everything is just way too high

OVA you'll struggle to find any A-Spec conversions now, you'll probably have to settle for a Xenon which is just as good or a second hand Cuda with the A-Spec conversion if you can ever find one for sale.
You can use a few different makes of springs on the Cuda, I like the Alex Racing ones, no issue with size and a good spread of spring rates Rayspeed and Yokomo are popular with the guys here too.
