Hi Guys,

Those R3s are looking good. Most of the hop-ups for the R2 will fit the R3 (for example the aluminum dog-bones, the Ti-Axles, these are all interchangeable).

We are currently revamping the Alex Racing USA website, brand new look coming soon (I know, waaay over due ) Should be up by the weekend!

You might want to switch to steel front dogbones, aluminum wont hold up for long I dont think. Looks awesome otherwise.

Suppose to eliminate the resistance in mid throw of the rack?

correct the rack it self fits snug on the bushings filing some material off makes the rack glide back and forth better!

Hoping steve finds some bearings for the steering I see they have switched to them in japan already

weight of the axles alone:
Stock front-4.91grams each, Ti front-2.73grams each
Stock rear-5.33grams each, Ti rear-2.99grams each
+/- a few grams...

For all you R3 owners, do you think the new pal type drive
system will fit an R2 ? I am waiting for Steve to restock
the Speedway pal drive but if the R3 one fits I may wait
till these come in. Looking at the recent pics of R3 it
looks like it will fit.

Won't work on the R2 topdeck. The R3 motor mount mostly hangs from it's top deck, the R2's motor mount sits on the main chassis, including the Speedway PAL version.
