Rod - Just got through reading the new RC Driver mag, they got a nice pic of the top of your head as you lean down to make sure your chassis is flat, lol.

KO,

We (me and Berger) are still running the R2 with the Xenon stage 2 conversion on it.

Bearing for the steering rack? let me see what size they are, and I'll find out.

Some questions for the experts

- Can we use ceramic diff balls in the standard differential and are they actually lighter than the normal ones?

- Who supplies a complete set of titanium screws for the R2 or R3?

Thanks everyone

I'm not an expert but I know a little bit.
Ceramic balls are slightly lighter than the stock balls.
I use Tamiya's Light Balls but I'm not sure what material it is made of. Another type which is 'hard' and slightly lighter is the Tungsten Carbide balls, also from Tamiya.
I guess from the price they're at, the Ceramic is the most expensive, followed by the Tungsten and the Light and lastly the stock translate to the level of each hardness. I suppose the Light type is the lightest of all.
Correct me if I'm wrong.

The ceramic diff balls will fit in the stock differential with no mods, I believe Alex Racing even has a set, you might inquire with Speedtech about getting some.

Speedtech has a set of titanium screws in the Racers Corner, Alex Racing also does have a set that Speedtech can special order for you.

For screws, Alex Racing have their own screw set for the R2 and R3 (Part number A027 for R2 and A028 for the R3)
