Can someone tell me if the Xenon R2 alloy hubs are suitable for the R3

I assume the fronts are exactly the same, but i'm sure i've read that the new R3 rear hubs are a lower roll-center and also that the Xenon are a different roll center to the std. R2 ones but are the XENON alloy hubs and the R3 std. rear hubs are same roll center ???

HELP plz

no idea, I'd guess most people with Xenon hubs have an R2, me included, those with an R3 seem to be sticking with the kit hubs.
To be honest I don't mess around with roll center too often, don't have the time to try lots of settings so I stick to springs, mounting points, droop, toe and camber.

Are you interested in a brand new R2 or only spare parts for the same car?
I would like a new R2 preferably red but any color will do. If anyone has one or knows someone selling one let me know.

Merciless,

Yes, they will fit for the R3, and I believe the Xenon rear hubs comes with two set of hinge-pin holes, and the higher one match up with the R3, while the lower set match up with the R2.

I'll double check on monday when I get to work

Default Need help

Guys,

Would it be possible for the folks in US to share with us a English version of R2/R3 instruction manual? Everything that we see here in Asia is Japanese. Guess what? I can't read Japs.....

Much appreciated.

I don't think there is a english version. I didn't have one with mine but only the supplement from Steve at Speedtech. I can't read Japanese either but it all worked out Sorry couldn't help.
