How about asphalt? the rayspeed red/white seems on the stiff side for a low traction track.

2nd page?

Here's an observation. I hate that the one slot drilled for the servo mounts isn't countersunk.

awol

im scared to put down my R3 on that.. it'll disappear!

how thick can you get it? something as thick as the hudy would be nice so no warping.

guys.. got the HPI pistons in.. HUGE difference in dampening compared to the stock R3 pistons.. just squeezing it by hand i can feel the difference.

cant wait to try it out on tuesday.

Took out my center screw for motor mount block. Felt a bit torque steer...anyway, I got a much better setup for asphalt outdoor, had enuf steering as well with the ol rack. Just moved it up above the shaft (upside down mount). Guess i stick with the rack after all.

Can anyone scan/email me a copy of the R2 Instruction manual (English)? Or is there a site where I can download the manual?

I bought a R2 and to my horror discovered that the instructions are in Japanese........sigh....

Any help rendered is greatly appreciated.

You can try www.alexracingusa.com for building & tech tips. My R3 manual is in Jap also, wasnt that hard to follow just by looking at the pics, they are quite descriptive.
Another one ...

I should be up there tomorrow, but I still have that bad glitching problem, hopefully Jei will let me run that stocker tomorrow, I'm kinda afraid to run a mod with that bad glitch...
