Kinda off topic but I need to get some new pinion gears and was wondering what brand people like the most...

(i'm running some robinsons now but i don't like the set screws they use or the quality of the gear itself)

I changed mine out to Titanium Racing pinions and I like them a lot. They take the bigger set screw size...I got them from our hobby shop at the track.

Default R3

I am looking to purchase the R3. I am looking for several answers first...
1) How thick is the C/F chassis, upperdeck and shock towers?
2) Can I mount 28mm foam tires on the car without any modification? From the pictures I have seen, it doesn't look possible.
Thanks
Joe

AWOL:
Not sure if you can find it in US, but here we mostly use Kawada, they are hard anodized. Very high quality and wear is minimum. Comes in 64 and 48p.

as for the foams... i have a set of Jaco 28s that aaaaalomst go. minor filing, and/or maybe those Tamiya wheel spacers might do the trick. i have a set of 30s i cut the back down to fit my Evo, and they prolly wouldnt fit unless i cut off a bit more...

which rear part on long servo link?

the 'rear' hole of the steering knuckles would give earlier steering/more steering, vice versa with the 'front' holes.
Servo saver inner holes = less ackerman (difference of your left and right wheels steering angle), outer holes = more.

Hi Guys,

Just to answer some of the questions I saw reading through the posts:

Less caster degree will give the car more turn in, and more caster degree will give the car more on-power steering (at least from my experience)

HPI C-hubs will not fit the R2 or R3

The top deck is 2.0mm and the bottom deck is 2.5mm I believe as far as thickness. Front and rear shock towers are 2mm I believe. 28mm are some what difficult to get on the car, but Linger might have a solution.

actually the pro 4 adopted the ratio from the R2... if you can't beat em, join em. notice you don't hear about tweak problems, busted gears, etc with the cudas. *jumps in a hole and hides*
