Hi Guys,

I apologize for the delay on parts. What we have coming in this week are ti-screw kits for the R3, and also more Xenon Hop-ups for the R2/R3.

Alex Racing, SpeedWay Pal stuff are shipping out this week (which means we should have it next week) They delay shipping the package to us because they want to wait for the car kits and send everything together

Steve Wang

So speedtech (steve ?).

Is there anyway i can place a pre-order for the parts i'm wanting as i can't see away of doing that on your site ??

I'm really after 2x complete diff's,2x complete sets of anti roll bars (sway bars) and 4x gear box dust covers

I'd also like the square alloy front knuckles and c-hubs if you have them for the 2 cars ???

omg, 2nd page? don't give up on the cudas... spend time with them, they need setup time like any other car! I hit the A Main last night, got second place... raced against 2 pro 4s, 3tc3s and 3 xrays. Gotta give props to Alex, one excellent car he made.

not nuts... see too many posts about new cars being the best thing since sliced bread. To me that means they didn't set up their old car correctly for whatever reason.

Hi Guys,

I have the ceramic bearings in stock for the R2 (with Xenon or Pal system) or the R3 kit.

I have some good news to report on the titanium axles from Xenon, after 3 months of almost straight racing every weekend, the axels surprisingly have shown no sign or very very little sign of wear. Seems like they'll be lasting for a long long time.

I recently purchased a digital scale so I'll be measuring the weights of a lot of things (Ti-Screws, Ti-Axles...etc.) to give you guys a more exact figure on how much weight you're saving.

I'll be out again with the car this Saturday at SoCal, hoping to learn more about the car and setting it up. AWOLSoldier is right, you need to spend time with a car to learn it and be fast. I know guys who switches car every 2-3 months, and for me personally, it's difficult to grasp the idea that they can fully learn the car and maximized it in 2-3 month worth of running I think maybe I just lack the skills...

Steve Wang

Default Ti-Axles

i agree with steve about the Ti axles.. but ill take it a step further.. ive been racing about as long as him.... but with more races (race tuesday, sat and sunday whenever possible) with my R3.. and they are ROCK solid. no signs of wear or anything. ive rebuilt the car once since i got them back in early jan (i think).. they were just dirty.. and again no signs of anything. definitely one of the best hopups ive purchased for ANY of the cars i own.

Ti axles are just plain awesome!

steve let me know what you find at socal. my R3 was on rails a few weeks ago at rcheat..and again last sunday at oc circuit. plenty of steering.... cornerspeed etc. everything i could ask for. socal is just a whole different beast i havent tamed yet. car is so good i TQ'ed stock sedan both times. car is running awesome guys!

cant wait to get some ceramics in my R3!!!!

nah i think Hebiki spends a fair amount of time with all his toys... it's the people that give up on a car to try another without really spending any time with it. It's all good though, without customers like that, Steve would not be doing as well as he is.

Hey since the pal drive systems for the r2 aren't available, and i don't want to get the xenon stage 2, are there any solutions for me? I'd really like to run this type of system.

If anyone is selling a red or silver pal system, lmk.
