Default R3 Question

Hey R3 guys, I got a question regarding the steering.

Does this use the same 4x8 bearings as the R2 did?

How far apart (mm) are the steering posts?

Randman,

I don't think they are 4x8mm, they are smaller. The posts are a lot closer together than the R2.

Is the ID on the bearing still 4mm, or did that change as well?

Just thought this TC3 man here might give a little help in setup since my "tricycle" layed the smackdown on a couple of Cudas this past weekend.

we are usually both right together but for somereason that pack was flat, and it was not warm when I went out thus it had no speed, you witnessed that b4 the race...oh well, it was a battle with the traffic than anything. You were a tick faster anyway...We do all have to do the big race together but we can have only 2 cars...you, ko, and I need to talk about this in pms...
