Well i'm going to order a few parts... would you say buing two aluminum shaft supports is better than getting a pal system? Other than the supports i'm picking up the short steering posts and a few odds and ends.

The alloy shaft mounts arent better than the PAL system, and the PAL system isn't better than the alloy shaft mounts. They kind of work together to bulletproof the drivetrain though.

Well i guess i'll go with just the mounts for now and see how things go. I can't imagine needing anything more for stock racing.

For stock, you'll be fine with just the alloy mounts and 48 pitch gears.

Yup, looks like a Nosram Evolution with a nice heatsink ontop. LRP Quantum Competition 2 in a different case and cheaper

M-Troniks Cirrus is cheaper still in the UK and even nicer M-Troniks website has been completely overhauled, looks very nice now and has info on the Cirrus

pimping over

For stock racing alloy shaft holders and 48dp gears works well
Just make sure your main drive shaft is straight every now and again, the graphite shaft can move slightly in the alloy end pieces and cause spur wobble. A good way to check for straightness is roll it along a flat table with the spur mounting bits just off the edge of the table of course.

justinalamode- try doing a post based search, it's a question answered many times now in this thread. In short there is very little difference, it almost a choice between sparkly graphite or easy access spur gears.

Does the R3 comes with lightweight aluminium driveshafts or not? What are the items that can be lightened for the R3 as regarding rotating mass?

Pretty much the same as the R2, PAL hollow drive shaft, aluminium bones, titanium axles, revlite wheels, titanium pinions and lightweight spur gears.
You pays the money you can really go to town.

The Rayspeed Red is 18.26 lb/in. The Alex 1.5 x 6.0 is close at 18.52.

The Rayspeed White is 17.17. The Alex 1.5 x 6.25 is close at 17.09.

The stock R2 springs (1.4 x 6.0) is kinda soft at 14.39 lb/in.

It comes with aluminium drive shaft but all the axles are steel. Not sure if the Ti ones already out or not.
There's hollow graphite drive shaft but I believe it will only withstand upto 19T motor power. Correct me if I'm wrong.
I use TA 1/8 lightweight balls for the diff as well.

Is there anywhere that ships worldwide that would have a good price on that?
