i think ive posted this before, with the R3 and newly redesigned motor mount, aligning the drivetrain is so much easier..and much freer.

i forgot who, but someone at socal spun my drivetrain and was very surprised when they learned i had stock bearings. they thought i was on ceramics.

randman noticed that its lighter and stiffer. thats with a stock 2.5mm lower deck.

next time we're at la mirada.... ill show you the car again. you didnt get to check it out too much last time i showed you. drivetrain is better from that last time we were at la mirada.
Yeah the car did feel very light too, maybe it's the new sparkily pixy dust chassis material! Man that chassis was stiff too. I was impressed.
Still can't get over that guy at La Mirada jumping his Cuda off of the T-max jump! I feel sorry for whoever buys that car used off of him

alum. shaft holders.. this will let you run stock and mod. i think someone posted that the plastic ones dont hold up well in low turn mods.

I would say a front diff, that is if the R3 comes with a 1 way. On carpet, mid-span arms. If you order the car from Steve at Speedtechrc.com, he can help the most. He is a great guy to work with and help plus he has A+, excellent service. Dealing with him for 3 years and have no negitive feedback on him. Not 1%. Hope this helps.

Doesn't sound too bright... I work hard to afford my hobby, I wouldn't think of doing that to my stuff but I guess some would, it's theirs, they can do what they want.

I know i saw a Cuda- it had the copper painted body. He wasn't jumping as high as the tmax's but he was getting atleast 8ft of distance! I could see under the chassis when he was in the air

Man i can't see how people do that to their cars. I spend so much time getting everything just right to just treat it like trash.
