Is it to add more steering ? Thanks for sharing the info.
Yes, if you angle the arms backwards you will get more aggressive steering.

Wouldn't be very hard. New bulkheads, motor mount, upper deck, and steering rack. The front bumper brace looks cool, but I'm sure it's not necissary.

I agree... Converting over to a new car isn't my thing. I'd rather have the whole new car.

ooh more shiney
wonder if they'll bring out an R2 steering rack conversion....
atleast the extra alloy weight is low down, hehe.

an R2 to R3 conversion would be a lot of expensive little bits, mostly with changes that aren't that big, as the guys have said, cheaper to buy an R3.
