We're talking about the ball stud that goes on the steering knuckle. Since Alex Racing uses the Yokomo ball studs, they have short silver ones, medium black ones, and long silver ones.

Found this pic a few pages back. They are the black ball studs. To get a little more initial turn in, try putting a 1mm spacer underneath the ball stud.

It took a lot of time and cash to build that car, but I'm going to switch to the new CGM car, I race on very high grip asphault at my home track, and I'm planning on a lot of carpet racing this year as well.

I thought about this too but go with the pal setup that fits the R2. It's such a nice part and it's guaranteed to fit.
